    Or all the D bag golfers that get in the way of my golf!!

    If your not happy about price increase call your reps and tell them ,Look at all the tags you can get how many states are like this Maine gives one deer tag ,I dont normally post on these types of threads just had to put my two cents in.

    Golf = $40 for 18 holes without a cart at a cheap place = losing 5+ balls = throwing a club and breaking it = leaving in a worse mood than you started = priceless. DU and WoodsmanA would probably benefit most from golf because they'd leave with signed slips to hunt the whole course!

    most of you are missing the point IMO.

    A) most hunters don't hunt both pheasant & turkey so their costs go way up

    b) you now can't hunt woodcock, quail which is non native and non stocked, crows or grouse without a permit.

    The grouse & woodcock issue bugs me the most as the State does next to nothing with what few grouse are around and they do nothing for woodcock

    I too would like to see some more effort put into grouse conservation by the state. But DEEP is so desperately underfunded and stretched too thin. The biologists don't have the resources nor the money to invest any time or effort into grouse. I've heard stories of how many grouse used to be around in this state years ago. I'd love to be able to hunt grouse but honestly, with so few around it just doesn't seem smart to hunt them until more is known about the current state of the population. If someone has any info or knows more about grouse in CT please share. I see grouse on the road near my house ocassionally. They're around out this way but not in high numbers I don't think.

    The last time I was on a golf course for actual golf was probably 5 years ago or so. I was invited for a bachelor party thing for an old friend of mine. I ended up trying to catch a bullfrog in one of the ponds. Some guy yelled at me.

    State did a huge habitat restore specifically for woodcock in roraback state forest and wyantenock.
