    In an effort to reach out to bringing more Jr hunters in, why not reduce the price? Are the folks @ DFG serving meals? Correct me if I'm wrong, but costs to put this on is relatively non-existent, instead calling on instructors to impart their collective knowledge more than anything else. With so many fee-based increases that the hunting population has been asked to support, here's a novel idea…give something back to the masses in an effort to grow interest.
