After reading these two articles this morning (http://www.bismarcktribune.com/display/ ... /nws-1.txt and http://new.in-forum.com/articles/?id=9212) I am fed up with the small town businesses complaining about how much money the NR's bring into their economy and how the BIG CITY resident hunters shouldn't be dictating hunting policy in the state. Maybe its time we give them a kick where they deserve it, IN THE WALLET, they don't seem to understand how much money we spend all year long. How about if we make it a point to buy everything in the BIG CITY when we go fishing or to the lake this summer. Don't buy minnows or gas at the store buy the boat ramp, bring them from Fargo, G.F., Minot, or Bismarck. I'm not trying to put anybody out of business here, just want some people to wake up. These are the same people that complain about the Big CITIES having an extra 1% sales tax, maybe if we didn't buy our outdoor gear locally and mail ordered it, the BIG CITIES would have to raise the city tax to 2%. I just want ONE proponent of NR's to say "HEY WE NEED THE INCOME WE GET FROM THE FREELANCE RESIDENTS TOO"
