:I don't get it. Are you saying I'm daydreaming because there are no poachers or that you don't mind poachers? Again, if you are ethical what's your beef? I'd think you'd relish seeing a bad guy go down. Or did you jump to conclusions and think I was making a starement that ALL herpers are crooks? I'm guessing the latter. Take a deep breath now.
Follow the law but don't let it decide for you what is ethical. I have yet to talk to a biologist who thinks CA bag limit of one zonata is fair and reflective of the species abundance. All of them have said zonata can support a much greater take but they are divided only on whether increased take and commercial breeding would result in more breaking of rocks. I think if there were more reasonable laws more people would give their spots to F&G to watch and also turn in more rock breakers and poachers.
