Legal hunters care more about the animal populations than left wing tree hugging who only care about optics, and know nothing about hunting and traditional conservation. Wildlife populations can't get too large or too small. They must be kept in balance. The liberals can't tell a kids water gun from an uzi.
I don't agree because this may then pose a threat to people who are enjoying numerous outdoor activities. If I wanted to go hiking in a national forest I shouldn't have to worry about getting killed because someone was negligently shooting their firearm.
This is another smoke screen, similar to the constitutional amendment in Idaho to establish hunting as a right. The amendment was a smoke screen to prevent the Idaho Department of Fish and Game from having water rights necessary to protect natal anadromous fish.
Game and sport hunting should be outlawed. You want to take part in "ecological hunting"?, join the parks department and become a Ranger. They should be the only ones allowed to carry out herd culling. Subsistence hunting could be allowed with special permits.
This is a what the fuck bill? Hunters and Fishermen do not protect resources! They use resources. They do spend lost on licenses, stamps , ammunition and guns! We still need state and Federal regulation to protect the wildlife and the land.
