Take a look at the way that ANY hunting in Africa is done and you'll see the parallel: Good management is assisted by professionals who have a long term investment in keeping the resources managed for the benefit of all. The result is healthier stocks of animals, reduced poaching, local economic benefit, and fees returned for management. Hunters get better trophies, and all benefit. Personally, it seems that the system works pretty darned well.
(hope duty up there is fun for you, Coastie. I'm from Cape May originally. Traverse City now?)
