"Managing wildlife is more complicated than it appears. I have always liked the quote "Wildlife management isn't rocket science, it's a lot more complicated." From all of my interactions with hunters, anglers, and trappers over the years, I get the feeling they assume that natural resource agencies have all of the answers. The reality is that we don't have all the answers, but we do what we can with the resources we have available to answer those questions. We put forth a lot of effort to understand the inputs and outputs for a given system, and in the end Mother Nature may change the system in a way that we did not expect.
