Or most of us would turn into Fisherman.



Salmon, Steelhead, Halibut, Ling Cod, Rock Fish, Shrimp, Crabs, Mussells, Clams, Grayling, Trout, etc.



Who has time to hunt when you can fill the freezer fishing?

I read that while eating a nice lunch of sauteed porcini from the Kenai peninsula and Cook Inlet razor clams in a cream sauce with snow peas from my daughter's "garden." You've got a bit of a point there...but the best thing is that you can just combine them with a bunch of spectacular blast and cast trip options.

Why choose when you can just get a bigger freezer (again)?

That wilderness called Anchorage must be tough!

It would become easier to draw a tag here in Utah.

Wait time on our buck tags will increase as many more people migrate to Utah. It is easy to see 6 year wait times if we don't change.

Today will be "back in the day" in 2040.
There is a difference between Mule Deer, Whitetailed Deer, and Elk management when it comes to APR.

To Quote the Article

“APRs don’t produce many trophy bucks,” Heffelfinger said. “They’re good at creating more 2˝- and maybe 3˝-year-olds. That might be fine for elk hunters and Eastern whitetail hunters, but that’s not what most hunters want from mule deer.” Jim Heffelfinger Arizona Game and Fish Department and a research scientist at the University of Arizona

Heffelfinger said hunters also accept APRs more readily if they can shoot a doe or cow, but mule deer herds in many Western habitats don’t offer such safety valves. He said an easier, more sustainable way to produce bigger muleys is to restrict license sales, which Western hunters accept but Eastern hunters reject.
