How do you pay to hunt on public lands? (Serious question I don't hunt) I always thought you bought a hunting license whether you were on public or private land, do you have to pay additional money to hunt on public land?
A lot of cities make the land owners pay for part of the sidewalk build/repair.

I don't have a clue on how to inforce it, I'm just playing Kickstand today. (I'm not very good at it, I might add)

The hunting license is the tax. However, it also transfers as a tax to private land which I wont get into.

Parts of the Muskatawa, White Pine, Hart connection, Lakeshore connector,.........those are just a few off the top of my head. Think about the fact that a lot of these connectors go through street interchanges, which require road modifications, including traffic signal and signage. That's where a lot of the extra cost is.

See you tomorrow buddy.
