It is obvious that this will not "get it done". His article simply shed light on the situation. For the people who have been aware of the horrible situation but have been sitting back waiting for the DNR to fix things, this might get them to take a stand and start expressing there disgust. How many more people who reads this article will start going to meetings and such? If it is just 1 person or 1,000 people it may be just enough for things to change. Ultimately the DNR has to fix the situation and not the individual hunters. How many people are as passionate about Whitetail management? I'm sure that number is extremely small compared to the total number of hunters in the state of IL. People expect the DNR to know what is best for the herd and they think they should be adjusting the laws with how the herd is doing each and every year.(Which is what should be going on but from what I have read here people feel that this is not happening.) If the tags are there, people are going to buy them simple as that. This is when the DNR should step in if there are to many antlerless/antlered tags being filled. Simply put the DNR is a fault for the situation and the guys who run the DNR should hold the same amount of responsibility. There is a reason there is a DNR, if it is up to the individual hunters why is there even one now???
