I’ve never met anyone who hunts like that. Not one. You describe some liberal caricature of what they think hunters are. Apparently we have you and your friends to thank for that.
What’s happening in this case— with regard to the CA DFW— is something that I’ve seen happening here in WA, and in AZ too. It used to be that the people who got into hunting and fishing enforcement did so because they were -sportsmen- themselves. They loved the outdoors. They hunted and fished and wanted to preserve the resource and the stock of game for future generations to enjoy.
But now, starting even a couple of decades ago, the people getting jobs in game enforcement are anti-hunting, anti-fishing, animals rights activist types. Not only do they not hunt or fish but they don’t think -anyone- should be hunting or fishing.
Does not bode well.
The truth is neither liberal nor conservative.
It is hard to believe you have NEVER witnessed a hunter drinking.
I am NOT AT ALL suggesting all hunters are drunk. I'm just saying that is the way it was in my home town 30 years ago, & I didn't care to be shot by a drunken fool.
I am NOT against hunting. Though I no longer hunt, I support your right to do so & I support the conservation methods of hunters.
The difference between me & a liberal is that I believe people have a right to do potentially dangerous things if they choose to. It is their business, not mine or the gubmint’s business. Whether I choose to participate is my own business.
Again, the animal's life is just worth more than my entertainment.
