    Call them words of war between hunters and wildlife activists: Starting Jan. 1, California's Department of Fish and Game will become Department of Fish and Wildlife.

    The change, hunters say, reflects a move away from traditional hunting and fishing values and is part of a bigger push by the Humane Society of the United States to eliminate hunting across the nation.

    As much as I cannot understand why anyone finds pleasure or sport in killing animals, I think that if you don't let the hunters have a season, then farmers will end up exercising their inherent right to protect their property and crops.

    What about finding food in killing animals? Are you a vegetarian?

    You being a homo and not understanding a rough and tumble activity like hunting, it can be confusing for you to grasp such a sport. Its ok, btw don't eat a steak or hotdog if you are squeamish about hunting.

    I'm not a hunter, personally, but I live in a state in which deer hunting season is a big economic boost every fall.

    I've eaten the deer killed by others, though. It tastes like beef, only a little meatier and less fatty.

    I just wish that they'd let people shoot those damned Canadian geese. Those things are huge and out of control around here, leaving droppings that are bigger than those of my mom's yorkie. A poor family could eat for a week from one of those beasts. Even if we only allow bow hunting of them, just take away their protected status.

    You crack me up. Rough and tumble? Yeah, because most hunters are out there like those gator guys on Swamp People. The hills of West Virginia aren't dotted with cushy cabins where suburbanized good old boy wannabes lounge in electric warmups before heading out into the perilous pine forest to hunt Bambi.

    Better yet, impress yourself by going on Safari with nothing but your bow... and six African guys with a Land Cruiser and an elephant gun behind your as you trek into the terrifying wilderness. Give me a break.

    I don't eat steaks or hot dogs, but that has nothing to do with my position. It also wouldn't undo my objection to finding pleasure or sport in killing animals. I have killed chickens for food, but I didn't think it was fun. I didn't do it for fun. I did it because chickens are food animals and you have to kill them before you clean them for cooking. We executed them, we didn't sit in a lounge chair and pick them off with a .22.

    So you eat meat then? if you do you can't judge a hunter, even if he enjoys the kill he at least uses the meat.

    Because you can totally execute a wild deer that runs at any rustling of leaves or a wild boar that has tusks that can tear you apart and is charging you.

    Onto the actual topic of the thread.

    As an outdoor sportsman, I don't find this threatening at all. Knowing government beauracracy as I do, this was probably the work of something who was trying to make it look like he's done something worthy of a promotion.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.
