Discussion Topic: Hunters Meet Landowners Online

Every year I spend days poring over tax maps, driving around, knocking on doors, asking permission to hunt. At about 98 percent of the places I go, I walk away saying "Thanks anyway." There's got to be an easier way. And Ohio may have it--basically an online match service for hunters and landowners.

A pilot program . . . will work with farmers and other landowners to develop a Web-based hunter access program. Landowners could review a database of sportsmen and select hunters they would allow to hunt deer on their property.

What do you think? Good idea?
