Hmmmmmm
 
I really don't know if this is a bad thing or not?
With the commission the sportsman really had no way of putting any pressure on them if they decided to do something that the sportsman didn't agree with. As the members of this commission were appointed not elected.
At least w/ the politicos we can hold their feet to the fire come election time.

Think of it this way..........

Who would rather have making dicision about the state's Natural Resources [fishing & hunting stuff]? A group of people that have a background and experience in some area of "Natural Resources" or some politicans that may have little or no experience with the state's natural resources?

Easy choice......IMO.

Short story about one member of our Legislature.......

While logged on to the "Legislature" web site, I was lessening to the House Natural resources committee talk about a bill. This bill [as most Louisiana laws have] imposed a small fine [~ $ 25] for the violation and/or some possible jail time.

Everyone was in favor of this bill but one WOMEN member. She thought "JAIL" time was too harsh for such a "small" minor infraction. The other committee members tried to explain that having possible jail time was the only way to "make" people pay the fines. After 10 minutes of discussion and explaining the reason for "jail time" as part of the penality......she still objected to that part of the bill.

You can talk and explain how you think to the commissioners.
You cannot talk to, or make the Senate or House members understand anything.
They think they know everything.
The commissioners do work with and listen to the LDWF biologist also.

Not politicians. Those that have the money and power make the rules. I agree with Ray on this 1000%
