    Always pushing the hunting agenda. How about programs that don’t extract from Nature? That would be refreshing.

      The DEC Bureau of Wildlife (BOW) actually has no choice. The salaries of the wildlife biologist’s who push the hunting agenda are paid from monies generated from the sale of hunting & fishing licenses & an apportionment of Fed tax paid on killing equipment. Even in the face continuous mounting pressures on declining wildlife from human activity (loss of habitat) the BOW must keep insuring their future salaries via more youth & women recruitment into the sport of hunting.
