I normally do too but the lifelong, dedicated, KNOWLEDGABLE hunters are a tiny minority.

The only thing that could possibly work would be some sort of test that would have to be passed to ensure that the hunter could identify animals and the APR would apply to anyone who didn't take and pass the test.

It's just not reasonable. Most hunters are not knowledgable. Most don't care to be.

Think about it. If they WERE knowledgable and willing to handle the herd appropriately, none of this would be a question.

Most hunters kill anything they have a tag to kill. A great many kill anything they think they can get away with. That's why the buck ages are poor and the populations suck.

What we COULD do if hunters were knowledgable and cared isn't really relevant. They aren't and they don't.
