New name for DFG
« on: February 20, 2013, 07:50:33 AM »
I see that the dept. of Fish and Game has changed its name to Fish and Wildlife....With this state being broke I wonder how much money the name change will cost us taxpayers...Badges, emblems on vehicles, Uniform patches, paperwork etc etc. will all have to be changed at what cost to the taxpayer....After so many years being called Fish and Game what jack wagon decided the name needed to be changed....

According to their web site, their responsibilities of our department have evolved, so our name has changed to reflect it.  Yeah, how many millions did it cost to make this change as retired96 said!

The word "Game" implies hunting and that was no longer acceptable to some trreehuggers.

There has been less hunting across the state for a while now.
Probably a way to find a new fee structure to increase revenues.
MT has Fish Wildife an Parks and it has been that way for a while.
who knew we would not be trend setters in CA.   :lol2:

The average person wouldn't notice, but many State Department's changed names last year due to the merging of several different Department's.  No wonder the State is broke...

First heard of this during the hunt for the cop-killer mutt.
My first reaction was "what kind of PC BS is this.

Not a big fan of change. It is seldom for the positive.
