Sunday Hunting Will Affect Recreation

 

Dear Editor:

The issue of expanding hunting on Sundays, HB 1760, is falsely being touted as a hunting only issue by a small cadre of special interest groups; NRA, US Sportsmen’s Association.

The truth is that this is first and foremost a property owner’s rights issue as well as an infringement on the rights of the growing number of non-hunting outdoors enthusiasts, who are virtually guaranteed not having negative encounters with hunters at least one day per week now.

Hunters do not play well with others and are naturally aggressive people, who take great exception to any interference, perceived or otherwise upon what they deem their territory, whether on private or public lands or even those adjacent to said properties.

Those of us who will be on the losing end if HB 1760 passes need to stand up ASAP. We include not only landowners, but hikers, mountain bikers, birders, geocachers, kayakers, trail horse riders, nature photographers and anyone else who seeks to enjoy our public and private outdoors without the possibility of encountering an aggrieved and aggressive hunter.

All need to call or write their local state representative ASAP and tell them to vote no on HB1760.
