I know this is an old topic, but I’m betting they could double membership in short time with a more appropriate name. “Professional” has a distinct meaning with no room for roaming. It just doesn’t fit here and has a negative feel to it among lots of folks. Can’t count the times I’ve heard this from others, as well as saying it myself. IMHO
Being a paddy from across the pond, and thus a completely external observer, i thought PBS was an organisation for PROFESSIONAL hunters and figured its members would primarily be outfitters, guides, game managers, writers, coaches, etc. The name is definitely misleading 😕 Just an opinion from someone looking from the outside in.
