However, once the elk jump over a fence they essentially become private property and ability to hunt them is ransomed to the few tag holders that have maybe a week to fill a tag they will likely never draw again. I am all for property rights, but I think some fairness and order needs to be imposed on this situation so that tag holders can actually harvest these publicly owned animals.
I understand your perspective, but what you are implying is that the state intervene and dictate to landowners what they can charge a hunter. We already have enough regulations and we don't need another set of regulations that diminishes a property owner's right to use his land as he desires.
