I've been a member of HPA for quite some time now. Over the years, I've read topics and posts that made me laugh, angered me, enjoyed all the photos and stories behind them. A lot of the same topics surface year after year. One in particular that never dies is Trespassing. All the horror stories attached to this topic has done one thing for me and that was to swear that I would never ask to hunt or hunt private land period. I don't think people who post their land are bad, evil, or greedy in any way. It's just a battle that I didn't want involved with. But year in and year out it's the same old thing and I see and hear things from other so called hunters that make me sympathize with what private land owners have to endure throughout hunting season.
So with that being said, where would one begin to make a voice heard to try to do something about changing trespass laws? Who should one contact (state rep, governor, ect.) This is something that needs to be fixed, and get the ball rolling, and then maybe more people will jump on board. I'm sure some one has tried before.
Hunters who were supporters of the cross bows stood up in droves and got what they wanted. Sunday hunting is supported by those passionate enough to fight tooth and nail to see that it gets passed. Why not private land owners and those who support better trespass laws? I think that is the most important subject at hand.
How would one get the ball rolling?
