And the people who are not paying the sportsman fees are not hunting or fishing. So does all the money for wildlife management and stream restocking come solely from the sportsman fees or are some of my tax dollars being used to pay for your enjoyment?

My question is do we as sportsmen pay for our license fee as well as taxes? Are hikers REQUIRED to pay a fee for trails as well as pay taxes Although many do contribute in other ways. Do canoest pay a fee for the use of our launches or parking other then taxes?
