I have read and followed the NR controversy closely and and feel that it is vital that freelance hunting be preserved. Now it seems a move is underway to require nrs visiting Manitoba and presumabley Sk Ab as well to hire a guide/outfitter to hunt waterfowl. I know that there are quite a few of you guys who travel north to hunt and I believe you are mostly competant to to set decoys, call etc without a guide. Once again the GREED and COMMERCIALIZATION of this great sport rears its ugly head. i AM HERE TO TELL YOU THAT THIS WILL ULTIMATLEY KILL THE SPORT WE ALL LOVE. If any of you hunt Manitoba , Saskatchewan Etc. I implore you to make your calls write letters do what you can to nix this nonsense.This guide / outfitter crap has got to be controlled anybody with a dozen shell decoys that happens to be aresident is now a guide. Remember these are migratory birds no one owns them. Also What about all our DU and Delta money that we have contributed that is spent in Canada.Lets fight together to kill this now. Long live the average Joe and freelance hunting.
