You have hit on a serious problem with a system that must support its efforts with license fees.. This puts even responsible biologists in a tough bind knowing their jobs are tied to their decisions. Never as simple as just doing what is right. Obviously a fair scientifically balanced approach is needed and sometimes we even get that but it generally takes a lot of public outreach on both sides to arrive at that. Odfw and our parks systems should be funded out of the general fund, getting there is a BIG issue.
