I'm sure I'll be getting a summary of how many comments from members /volunteers were for/against shoulder seasons. Hopefully those of you who are members provided your comments in support /opposition so RMEF had an good cross section of member opinions when deciding on what their testimony would be.
Not to bring RMEF into this anymore than is warranted, but I would like to know:
Is this how RMEF decides what its testimony will be on management issues? It is entirely defensible, but I can certainly see where majority member support and what is good for elk would not be the same thing.
Additionally, I think opposition to the shoulder season has little to do with antlers, and everything to do with elk populations in general.
