Not 40 percent of a resource. Thats what already goes with outfitters. 161 didn't change that number
I've yet to see any proof that 40% is actual historical use with data but whatever the % was for the past decade, it was that based upon free market economics the way it should be. 143 tried to forgo that free market.
But yeah, 143 with whatever outfitter allocation being private land only would have been better than where it ended up. 1 or 3 thousand NR hunters on public still isn't really moving the needle compared to what could be accomplished if MT residents held their legislature and FWP accountable for actually managing the resource with it's best interest in mind.
