Re: Fate of bill to allow Sunday hunting unclear after
"Some lawmakers on the committee disputed the safety risk, saying other activities were far more dangerous, and that hunting season occurs at a time when other recreational use is relatively light." Just proves some of the elected are not the best or brightest. I guarantee there are more folks in the woods in October, November and early December than in February, March and April.
Folks go into the country in the Autumn to watch colors, and buy apples, pumpkins etc. They don't go slogging the muddy trails or watching leaves in March. Are those legislators idiots?
The farm bureau is absolutely correct about increased trespassing and a day to be in the woods. Not that it is dangerous per se, but to avoid dog walkers from chasing the deer and permit families to hike and watch leaves without worrying if some idiot will shoot at a rustle in the bushes.
But folks have the wrong idea about who should be posting. It shouldn't be that if the landowner doesn't want it HE must post his property. Let those in favor of it post their property as open. Or to alleviate the ugly posters altogether require ATV's, hunters, bikers, horseback rider and fishermen to carry written permission when on private property.
