    I would love to see a little more blue collar in the mix. I just read all of these commissioners bio’s. I’ve got nothing in common with these people background wise. I’ve got no problem with these people being successful but give me a guy that grinds it out during the week and saves his vacation to hunt public ground. Not somebody that owns thousands of acres or is a white collar executive.

    I agree but do not expect to see it happen. These high profile appointments are rewards for large campaign donations.

    The time required and money to serve is something the average working Joe could not do and make a living. 7 year term would require a lot of time away from home etc. And as stated you get appointed because you donate to campaigns.

    Ok, a retired average working Joe. Somebody who hunted public all his life and knows the plight of the common hunter. The donating to campaigns part may be true, but that validates my comments completely. I don’t want somebody having a say on the ground the common man hunts because he threw money at somebody. That means nothing to me. They can be private land commissioners for all I care.

    I texted him a couple weeks ago and he said all is well he’s just taking a break from social media.

    That would be ideal, but don't believe most of those picks would keep hunting public land after they got this gig. They'd probably be invited to meet & hunt with many of the "expensive, big wig" clubs & members, that would eventually want "favors" that would help the "richer clubs", or members... in some way. :)

    Might be why so many WMAs are being decimated by large scale logging.
