    I knew what you meant, and yeah, if it is a $50-75 ticket and takes 3 years to be caught twice it was worth the gamble. My guess is LEO's will be scrutinizing trailers for awhile. Will be a new revenue stream for them as well, and not faulting them for it either. They aren't the bad guys in this.

    I'm kinda pissed Motorcycles stayed at $38 for plates, that's some bullchit right there, they should be the same as any other motor vehicle IMO. A trailer should not cost more than a motorcycle at any time.

    Folks who complain about the changes to turkey regs in South Carolina. They forget that if not for the SCDNR relocating turkeys and deer, there wouldn't be any deer or turkeys for hunters to pursue in the first place over vast regions of the state. And yet they bash governmental controls, etc. "We the People" would hunt game species into extinction if not for a governing agency, folks. Fact.

    Related rant...the SC legislature largely poo-poo'ed all DNR suggestions to change the turkey season. Politicians = Shiny knobs

    I can only go off what my old man told me. When he went to pick it up in person they wouldn't give to him b/c of his Indiana DL.

    Likely uninformed clerk and ignorant customer.

    People from Illinois always ranting, for god sakes move.


    Michigan:
    Trailers and trailer coaches are registered with a permanent, non-expiring trailer plate based on the unit's weight. Trailer plates are nontransferable.

    Trailer and Trailer Coach plate fees are:

    Empty Weight Plate Fee
    0 - 2,499 lbs. $75
    2,500 - 9,999 lbs. $200
    10,000 lbs. and over $300

    Makes you wonder if they are moving to a more mainstream basic cable channel. One can hope.

    the article said they were already working on some content relationship with HULU; might be a sign of a full move there.

    good news - Sunday I saw a buck in a bean field that was already at least 24" spread and is looking like he will go an easy 150+.
    bad news- bean field surrounded by un-huntable Cook County forest preserve. He'll be paid sharpshooter bait come February.

    I am absolutely amazed to see how California has reversed course and is now putting their homeless first. Recognizing the real problem and doing what they can to start addressing an increasingly grave situation. Putting their constituents tax dollars to good use.
