How so? They refund one person then sell it to another it's a break even, not extra income.
you only get a refund if you choose to lose all your preferences points. If you want to keep your points, you have to pay for the full price tag.
that plus, app fees, habitat stamps that more people have to buy... hunting license that more people have to buy.
they are making tons of extra cash on this.
great for all involved.... department gets more money and hunters get more opportunity
Sounds like a bunch of people that are willing to accept the risk. Next.I saw a camp full of steelhead fishermen last night, all packed in around one campfire. Your argument holds no merit. Everyone goes "camping" then crowd around each other.
They were in a campground in Idaho that has been closed due to the stay at home order issued by the governor, so those geniuses broke more than one rule. You left zero wiggle room in your statement, you didn't say most everyone will keep their distance in the backcountry, you said "no one" will be within 6ft of another person. 3 fifth wheel campers full of people crowded around one table and one fire pit proved that statement false. I'd be pretty sure that the same things are happening in every state, including Colorado. Next.Sounds like a bunch of people that are willing to accept the risk. Next.
And what river were they steelhead fishing in SW Colorado where this backcountry ban is in place?
I've never seen anyone get a 5th wheel into the backcountry. The statement was made from "one post" about SW CO backcountry being closed to people. That has nothing to do with ID or steelhead fishing or 5th wheels.3 fifth wheel campers full of people crowded around one table and one fire pit proved that statement false.
if this was in reference to my post, I assume he was talking about 1st choice tags, ones where you would actually burn points... in which case you have to decide whether to keep preference points or get your money back.Paraphrased. “You lose your preference points in Colorado if you get your money back from a returned tag”
Not true. I will likely draw 3 tags this year (elk, mule deer, and antelope” on SECOND choices. I will get a point for each species and will not lose them-even if I turn back in all 3 tags for a refund (minus $15 processing fee)
