Jim, zero is an absolute number and I sure hope there is more than that...
I know TWRA has been super busy on the Clinch this year and they are addressing most access points. I just wish they would get the majority of the ticket/fine revenue instead of the county.
In the end; It is not about catching everyone; it is about keeping them honest!
