This is true.
However, I am not necessarily opposed to finding additional ways to generate conservation revenue outside of sportsmen, just needs to be within reason.
A good example is I would have paid an additional $20/year to ride my dirt bike and hike the Grand Mesa (i.e. National Forest Use Permit) and another $20/yr to ride and camp in the Bookcliffs (i.e. BLM Use Permit)
A lot of people get to use the public lands and have access to the safety resources without having contributed much to the revenue stream - and I believe there are equitable ways to close the gap.
