While I have no desire to apply in any state with a preference point system, my pay grade is not enough for me to buy landowner tags annually and then head up to BC and shoot a bighorn as well. So I will begrudgingly deal with the mini monopolies sticking it to the non residents. And categorically you can't trust the government to ever do the right thing, but what are the alternatives? I'd be happy if EVERY state did away with preference point systems and went to a pure lottery on all tags.
I'm not relying on them to get afield though, OTC opportunities exist for deer, elk and antelope if you know where to look and are willing to take up bow hunting.
Apperantly ethics are only for the cyber world so that the next poster can always be better that the previous post.

Leadership guru/Pastor John Maxwell once was asked to write a book on "buisness ethics". He declined saying that there is no such thing as buisness ethics, just ethics. You either have them or not, and you carry those ethics into every facet of your life.
I have shot 3-D for quite Awhile, And have seen cheating going on at alot of shoots....But It goes with the territory, and the only way to resolve it, is to have designated score keeper's that they don't know.....
Should be in every day life not just the field!!
Can you handle the challenge.... hunt hard but safe!!
The 3-D shoots Ive been to have been won by lets say questionable archers, but if they need to win that bad then let them its not worth it to me I just have fun gettin ready for the real thing.
Here's a little story for you. When I was 18 I shot in a little 3D league close to my house. I ended up getting 3rd place. The only problem was that I shot behind the group with the two guys that got 1st and 2nd and they weren't even close to where they should have placed. I was later told by a guy that shot with them that the two guys weren't about to let a kid win the league. Oh well. Unfortunatley some people just can't handle loosing. Good ethics or not, don't let people that live their life that way keep you from doing what you love. Right or wrong it's just the way it is.
