    Jerks With Guns

    That’s how the public sees us. I am so tired of stories like this.. These people are not hunters. They are jerks. Gutless morons. Mark my words - PETA won’t be the end of us, people like this will be. And the ones who litter. And the ones who shoot signs. For the thousandth time - we need to educate new hunters and our peers alike. Those who can’t or won’t - conduct themselves appropriately need to be driven from our ranks.

    From this story: Hunters flout law near Chandler park

    A bird watcher at Chandler’s Veterans Oasis Park discovered a pile of dead doves 20 yards away from the park fence and snapped a photo.

    The shocking scene from December was not only distasteful, but also illegal.

    According to Tim Holt, wildlife manager supervisor for the Arizona Game and Fish Department, piling up the dead doves without claiming how many were taken is a Class 2 misdemeanor.

    “The pile is an obvious violation of game and fish laws,” Holt said. “It’s not a common violation but it is a bad one because it paints a bad picture of dove hunting.”
