I oppose S. 3525: Sportsmen’s Act of 2012 because most Americans are beyond sustenance hunting.

But I must share the guilt I feel on the many less than humane deaths I caused. As an adult, I now know the full consequences of my actions.

The animals do not need hunters to "cull the herd" as they did fine for millennia before mankind thought themselves gods.

I wrote to Senators Johnson and Kohl. I doubt that Johnson will oppose it although I hope Herb Kohl will.
