    Sometimes this time of year I get a crowded feeling because of so many hunters in the woods but I tells myself that if it weren't for these guys they'd be no woods for me to run around in.Hats off to hunters.

    Thanks Al !
    Hunters support NJ outdoors by way of funding habitat purchases and wildlife management that benefit all outdoorspeople (Is that a word ?) through our license and our somewhat staggering permit fees.

    It also seems to me that many people have no idea what the Pittman-Robertson Act is. The Act created an 11% excise tax on guns and ammunition way back in 1937 and it has provided over 2 billion dollars for wildlife habitat acquisition and management since its enactment. 11% is a stiff tax when compared to most taxes and is folded into firearms and ammunition purchases. I gladly pay it every time I buy a gun or a box of shells.

    Your welcome ! :)

    Some quick facts on the Act:

    Us stone hunters don't have any taxes yet.Shhh! This NJ after all. Stones don't bleed and you don't need any bait for them so their very low maintenance but I must confess trying to eat o e is a terrifying project.
