    The Pay Hunting Vs. Free Hunting Myth

    We will debunk this right here and now with your posts. For so many years there has been this battle about pay to play and public. Commercial Vs. Free. I know for sure there is no such thing as free hunting. $40 that goes to every single CREP acre comes from your license fees and $7 off...
