That was the latest minutes they had posted on the county website, and those just went up in the last couple of days.That document was dated in May not July??? Any way be ready something is gonna happen! But I personally feel Hyde county has no clue cost wise what it’s in for. They are going to need at least one paid position, to handle administrative duties, mailing overhead, web administrative duties, more responsibilities imposed on local GIS staffers etc. we have no one to blame but ourselves!
Last time I checked my camper I keep at big trout year round isn’t free, my meals at Martelles isn’t free, my groceries that I get at red and white isn’t free, the buttload of shrimp I buy isn’t free, my gas from ethco isn’t free. I could go in and on and on.Apparently hunters don’t spend money in Hyde. So I guess Martelles is just full of residents of Engelhard on Saturday morning during the fall/winter. 125 out of county permits, going to be slim odds. Looks like they are still trying to figure out what determines a “resident”. A lot of folks will be upset if simply owning property in Hyde does not constitute residency.
I agree. The minutes didn’t quote any research or data. Just a statement, that “outside folks don’t spend money here”. Just trying to further their agenda.Last time I checked my camper I keep at big trout year round isn’t free, my meals at Martelles isn’t free, my groceries that I get at red and white isn’t free, the buttload of shrimp I buy isn’t free, my gas from ethco isn’t free.

If they start charging for hunting public waters it has to make the hunting better, right? Maybe they can use some of the funds to pen raise some buffleheads scoters and mergansers to release and keep the commandos coming back and bringing more friends.They will all start looking at them for.....revenue. 1000 permits would yield Hyde county 200,000 dollars in outside revenue. Just another tax.
