"Hit the nail on the head not your head on the nail"
I was responding to the question for why the state regulates deer or such wildlife vs fish in a private pond. Makes sense to me that the deer can roam and were not stocked by the landowner, thus a "public resource" to be managed by the state where vs fish in private ponds that were stocked by the land owner that would be a private resource.
I realize a lot of folks in some areas probably do "pay" a lot to create habitat that will hold deer or other game - but the game resources are not directly paid for and placed there like with stocked private ponds - setting aside the "private game / enclosed lands" of course.

Well since I asked the question I will provide a position
The regulation of public lands and waterways probably makes sense in order to preserve those resources for the benefit of all The use of private property should not fall under government jurisdiction or control. Property owner discretion. Just one man's opinion and I'm not looking to initiate a debate.
