Maybe in Tenn.. But in Arkansas the Game and Fish doesn't get a dime from the general fund. We fund them and they do a fantastic job with very little pay and resources. Fine bunch of folks. I wish all government employees were as dedicated and efficient. We would fund them here. but we are wasting our time even discussing it. And you are wrong about the percentage of the tax. It becomes part of the unit price and is marked up at every level. It is not separated anywhere.Just because the manufacturer charges an additional 11% does not mean the distributor will double that and then the retailer doubles it again. That means that if they repeal it, everything will drop 40% and the states could charge 20%, give it to Fish and Game and save us money. Thats fairies and unicorns right there. For one, its not going to drop 40% and if it did and the state took 20%, they certainly are not going to give it all to Fish and Game. The reality is that Fish and Game would have to do without the money. They would have to cancel all the programs and all of the people in those programs would lose their jobs. Thats the reality.
