With more preservation and no conservation, deer and mountain lion populations will increase on previously hunted properties. More injuries on the horizon for highway 1, 92 and 280. More money will be spent to track what has been historically known. Why not allow pre-screened licensed hunting (a legal sport) to raise revenue for our ailing state instead of tying up land where little to no tax revenue is collected?
