Our fees that we charge to NR hunters is way to low. If I go to Minnesota, North Carolina, Colorado or Montana to hunt I can't buy a deer, bear or elk license without paying a very high out of state fee for each hunting experience because there is high demand and limited availability for these hunts. Perhaps we need to do as someome suggested and sell our pheasant license for a fair price and a seperate waterfowl license for a fair price and not for an additional $25 or so because there is a very high demand for these hunts and because in North Dakota we provide a very high quality hunt. We sell them way to cheap!!! We can then use this money to increase habitat and access which is what everyone is concerned about. When I go to the Twin Cities, nothing is cheap - Timberwolves $40 or more, Vikings $40 or more, Valley Fair $40 - all for one game or days addmission and we pay for the parking. They also charge us much higher prices for food, drinks and lodging. We should not be returning the favor by giving quality hunting experiences away for a whole season at rock bottom prices. I think that NR come to hunt because they are getting great hunting at firesale prices. I say charge a fair price for the quality of the game and service we provide and give them the parking for free!! And if it keeps getting more and more crowded start charging for the parking!
