I too do not want more restrictions and control by government. I don't know about more tests???? Would have to put a whole lot more thought to this one!

In Montana, Hunter/Firearms Training is required if you are a first time hunter born after a certain date. But everyone who wants a black bear license, regardless of age or how long you've been hunting, has to take a one-time only test on identifying black bears and grizzlies. This is to help prevent accidental shooting of grizzlies. FWP offers an on-line course after which you can take the test and get certified. You can take the course and test as many times as you like or need. It's free, and I think a lot of you guys would have a lot of fun with it... even if you aren't going to hunt black bears in Montana. Go to:Bear Identification Program :: Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks and follow the links and instructions - when you get to the Bear ID Program page click on "Click here to start" at the bottom of the page. Have fun and let me know what you think. Hell, I think I'll take it again, myself, just for fun!

Testing designed to inform or teach might be a good thing, but testing to ban or regulate, vehemently opposed.

i am opposed to all testing for people who have not broken any laws. We need to hold people accountable for bad behavior. An example is no
hunter safety requirements, BUT if you injury someone you are completely liable for their expenses, lost wages etc. I know people will disagree but i am a firm believer in freedom and to me this means if i ain't affecting your freedom leave me alone. We are all suppose to be innocent until proven guilty and testing means you are guilty of being an idiot until proven innocent by passing a test.

What about the test that makes sure you can identify the diference between black bears and grizzlys from other hunters. there seems to be a big problem there too.

I think the mere mention of another (test) is nuts (being nice). This is how the gov finds ways to tax you to death. $10 bow, $20 gun,$15 tree stand,,$10 fur bearer, etc...------Sure have a test for all and the next thing is your lic. just went up another $500 a year. They will say it is for the good but it is really just another tax. Taken a look at how long the list is now of taxes or fees you are paying? Enough with these types of great ideas.
