And all that 8000$ work station cant handle tge speed of my lg Verizon incredible 2 phone that falls apart if i squeeze it wrong lol i guess now u will have a fair chance with my super phone and my 13 friends i have written down to apply for all 4 dexter hunts available not to mention one of my other buddies has 20 names that r goin in the same hat so now its random draw between u and at least 35 ppl instead of trying to beat my varbage phone and his average computer with ur super 8000$ work station not to mention all the other ppl doin the same thing as us to get one of those permits. Did u kill anything out there on that hunt btw?

Didn't kill anything, passed on a couple 8pts that maybe I shouldn't have but I was hoping for a monster. Did some scouting and found a sweet spot with zero human sign but ran out of time. If god smiles down on me and I draw it again I'll be in there for sure.
The system was broken, there's no arguing that. Does this fix it? NO. Is it better? probably not if everyone is putting in 20 of their friends. I don't understand how soo many other states can handle the distribution of permits so well, yet FL fails every time they try to fix it.

Y'all need to knock it off or I will close this thread and start handing out vacation permits. There's an unlimited number of those tags.
If you have nothing new to add, refrain from posting just to complain and kvetch.

Just remember to get all 20 of your people lined up have them pay for their licenses and WMA stamp and then have them not get anything. Keep doing that for a couple years and see how long they donate their money.
For me I am happy it is a fair and equal draw. If it drops my chances then so be it.

Pull up your big boy pants fellas because the next new feature will be a quota on quotas.... You'll ONLY be allowed one bow, muzzle, and gun hunt so the rest of the quotas will be better evenly distributed. Keep on griping and ol St Nick will provide a fix!

Maybe if we organized some sort of group and actually put forth some sort of petition .
I would say...join just about any stakeholder group EXCEPT hunters to see how that actually gets done.....

Well that sounds nice and all.... however, hunters have yet to stand up and threaten to sue or better yet actually file suit over acess and denying others from use.
Maybe it is time that we all pay attention to those "Other" stakeholder groups and take a page out of their own play book and use it to our advantage.
Joe- Do you think that would work?
We need more retired hunters with nothing better to do than go to meetings while everyone else is working. We can cover the cost of gas and expenses. That seems to work for the non-hunting stakeholders too. Ooh, oooh, we can throw our hands in the air, say something under our breathes and hunt out of state with everyone else that is going that way. The car pool seems better.

Joe- There is the Federal Judgement Fund that these anti-hunting groups use when they can prove merit in their cases. The case doesn't have to be won by them at all. They know this and utilize this tactic quite frequently. I read somewhere that is a tune to $21 million in the past 6 years.

That's nonsense. Audubon, Sierra, Defenders of Wildlife and others sue regularly and they still "work" as stakeholders and "partners" with all these state agencies. The overt caution and trepidation is understandable when you have no bite behind the bark. Put some teeth behind the threat of legal action and they will change how they react to us taking a stronger position. Without follow through, these agencies know thy can call our bluff and get away with continuing to bully and push us around.
