So hunting falls under neither “tourism“ nor “recreation“??
That seems like a thought process that didn’t quite get completed.
I’m nowhere near close enough to the situation to know whether the “right” number is 150, 1500, or 15,000, but I think the Senator oughtta look into it. But paid contractors don’t seem that hard to control from my POV… If you don’t pay them, they are pretty likely to stop.
