Illinois hunting and fishing

Business as usual at the DNR

The word on the street is a 9 day January season is a reality. Obviously, nobody listens to the people who hunt these animals or look at the data from the previous years. Why should they? Money seems to speak for itself. When insurance companies wine and dine politicians for the sake of increasing their profits, who really needs to listen to the very people you are supposed to work for? Insurance companies seem to be all about caring for their clients. You don’t think so? Watch their TV commercials and you’ll see! You know, the soft music in the background, the children running and smiling and the parents feeling all warm and fuzzy because they feel “safe” that they’re insured. That is until they have to actually use their insurance, then it’s the 48 hour run-around!

“Would you like some cheese with that wine sir”? “Sure that sounds great pal”! “Hey, a little cheese goes really well with my $100.00 bottle of wine. What’s that, a box of goodies? Sure, my wife likes that stuff too! Ya know Joe, you’re right, we don’t really need that many deer here in IL.” “Heck, you can take the whole darn herd for another box of that stuff over there”.

Sound familiar? It should, because it seems to be happening here again in IL.

Lincoln would be proud.
