It's interesting that they have the time and manpower to go after people shooting at inanimate targets, when they tell me repeatedly that they have neither the time nor the manpower to enforce regulatations protecting live animals from poaching -- a line I've been fed not only with regard to nongame animals, but also in response to my report of finding a campsite with remains of at least 4 freshly butchered elk, out of season. Clearly the department's priorities could use a little reorganizing.
