As many here know the money has to be used to benefit fish and wildlife and in a lot of recent cases it is spent on acquiring new lands outside the Adirondacks. (They use EPF funds here).

There is some Federal legislation in the works to allow it to be used for promoting hunting and fishing, but I wouldn't mind seeing some of it also going towards staff with the requirement that they be in the field tending to hunting and fishing matters.
Yes, and revenue from timber sales on state Forest , goes into the general fund.
