So I believe in eating locally. Eating organic. And yes, eating food that other people have hunted/killed themselves whether it be on a local (small) farm, or in the woods during deer season. So hunting is a good thing in my mind.
You've gotta think deeper than "Oh look at how I shot the hell out of that buck" and rather "Look at how I hid quietly for the right time to strike, aimed my shot taking into account wind, temperature, and bullet drop and all it took was one shot to kill dinner"
Guys, don't feed the troll.
Why should anyone worry. It's not like these clowns are kooks or anything. From the article:
A man is forced from his job for the sole reason of partaking in a legal activity. Ugh.Quote:
The Outdoor Heritage Alliance earlier cried foul when the Humane Society launched a campaign to remove the director of the California Fish and Game Commission, a regulatory body separate from the department.
The commission board last August removed Dan Richards as director after the Humane Society and others protested when Richards was photographed in a hunting magazine with a mountain lion he had shot in Idaho. It's legal to do so in Idaho, but not California.
I once had a libtard ask me why I kill animals. I told her it was so they don't scream when I bite into them.
only thing left to shoot out there is libtards.
It is not the name change that bothers me. It is the culture within the state government of California. As it sits right now, all of California's agencies that deal with natural resources are all lead by leftists and the problem is that what happens in Cali tends to spread like a disease.
A couple of years ago, California banned all gold dredging by small time prospectors. This was done to "protect the native salmon". However, not one independent study has backed up these claims. Unfortunately the result of this ban is the closure of mom-n-pop stores whose main income came during the summer months when dredging season was. This has also resulted in layoffs in major mining equipment companies like Keen and ProLine who manufacture dredges. With the loss of sales tax revenue and jobs, especially in the gold bearing areas of California, it has done nothing but hurt the people.
It is no secret to outdoorsmen like myself that the bureaucrats in California would like nothing better than to shut down hunting and severely restrict fishing in that state. The Jerry Brown administration doesn't seen to care about the jobs that will be lost or the revenue that will leave the state.
I agree with you that California is constantly going too far with their laws and regulations. One need only look at how they thwart the Second Amendment, and wonder why the NRA can't seem to do anything about it.
Here's what I saw on my last trip to California: East of I5 were billboards expressing farmers' anger and concerns about water restrictions. I did not see anything west of 101 to educate the liberal side of the highway on the issue. A lot of Californians seem to vote along with this bullshit because it makes sense to them in ignorance. They don't know they are ignorant, they simply don't have or put in the time to educate themselves, and conservative groups don't seem to think it's worth the money to put up bullboards or public statements west of 101.
