Denver CO - The Colorado Parks and Wildlife Commission held a rare late night session on Sunday to adopt a measure that would increase nonresident hunting licenses to more than 50% of the total. Reasons given were to "increase diversity from other parts of the country, provide equity in license distribution, and promote inclusion for those who can't afford high license prices".

This last initiative, called the "20-20 rule" will make available 20% of all licenses at 20% of the normal cost, and no proof of income will be required to apply because, as Commissioner Beaulieu explained, "We trust everyone - well, except resident hunters".

Commissioner Haskett, an outfitter, said, "This will be good for resident hunters because it will encourage residents to move to another state to take advantage of the new nonresident opportunities here."

The Commission also voted to extend the nonresident application deadline to May 1, and would allow low income nonresident hunters to make payments over time, with no interest.

This is being hailed as a breakthrough in equality by nonresident hunting scholars on the Bowsite, who typically complain about everything, but especially license costs, availability, and Democrats.

Seems DEI is being pushed down the throat of the majority of U.S citizens.

I heard they’ll be giving these non resident hunters a head to toe Sitka gear outfit with every reduced price tag sold. In the name of DEI of course.

In addition to the licensing expansion, the CPW will also provide all hunters with an undocumented worker to pack any harvested game.

I hadn't heard that undocumented worker part. I must've left a little early to eat a coupled Easter eggs.

Unfortunately this is more believeable: "Pleased to meet you, hope you'll guess my name Aww yeah But what's confusin' you is just the nature of my game Mmm yeah,Just as every cop is a criminal And all the sinners saints As heads is tails, just call me Lucifer 'Cause I'm in need of some restraint So if you meet me, have some courtesy Have some sympathy and some taste Use all your well-learned politesse Or I'll lay your soul to waste Mmm, yeah,,," The Stones nailed it on this song. This is exactly our society today.

I thought it was strange today when I applied and it said invalid credit card fee waived and you will receive two extra preference points.

What, no 10% set aside for trans hunters?! I'm sure they'll remember to add it in the next modification.
