Default BW hunts

I heard something today I found interesting, if it is true. Almost half of the people who got selected for the BW family hunt did not show up last weekend.

I don't hunt BW but if that is true, it really stinks for people who wanted to take their child hunting and didn't get selected.

I wonder if all the special hunts like that in BW and Eglin are like that.

I do not know if it is true, but the rumor is anti-hunters also apply (and get drawn) in order to protest hunting.

A coworker applies for BW quotas every year, I guess as a just in case sort of thing. He hunts eglin and bama...

Do they require you to have a hunting permit to apply for these hunts?

Yeah you have to have a state license. So in a way they are funding hunters regardless if they know it or not.

True, fishing and hunting license fees go into the pot of cash that funds State wildlife and fisheries management business. At least we hope it does.
