    Checking on the net, I found some disturbing thoughts:

    The Constitution Does Not Protect Hunting

    "I'm not 'anti-gun,' having plenty myself, but I don't like the way they get used. Shooting paper and clay are okay, collecting is okay, but hunting is not."

    THIS guy scares me:

    Anthony Marr: Join Anthony Marr's Anti-Hunting Alliance (AHA)




    "1. Support local campaigns against the culling and bow-hunting of deer in urban, suburban and park environments.

    2. Integrate the local deer-battles into a national Deer War.

    3. Launch massive internet and media campaigns on local and national levels.

    4. Launch federal-level class-action legal challenges against the state-level Hunter Harassment laws for violating the freedom of speech and property rights of non-hunters and anti-hunters as guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution (listen to the Jan Haagensen interview by Anthony Marr on Animal Voices in www.myspace.com/AnthonyMarr)."

    We are going to have to be pro-active against this kind of mind set.

    NO it is not legal to harass a hunter while in the field, and every state has a LAW stating so. As to attacking them on the internet or anywhere else, well... as long as the attack is not threatening it is covered under the 1st amendment of the constitution.

    in most places, it is illegal to interfere/harrass hunters. doesnt matter what the subject, be it anti hunting or anti whaling, there will always be big mouthed zealots trying to rain on everyone's parade. anti gun, anti hunting, anti drinking, anti smoking, these gorups all have many things in common, but the #1 is they enjoy F'ing with other peoples right/desire to do something, and most of them desire for a nice democratic run socialist state, that will take care of them on everyone elses sweat!

    "these gorups"

    I know it's a typo, but "gorups" fit these idiots perfectly.

    If that should ever happen to anyone, I would HIGHLY recommend stop your hunting, unload your arms, and leave.

    Maybe I'm paranoid, but the age of cameras are everywhere, and of good quality on most cell phones.

    I hate vegans! It's my right to say so!

    These idiots watched Bambi too many times. Somebody needs to tell them that if hunters don't keep the population in check, there will be starving deer out there. They don't lose a word about that. Nor do they say a thing about how many animals would be killed by cars and how many people would be killed in accidents with animals.

    I am an animal rights activist in the fact that I am a hunter and I try my best to keep a hunt-able population of animals out there. None of these gorups (thanks for the new word) do half as much for wet lands as Ducks Unlimited does.

    Around here, all we have to do is call 911 and eventually someone will be here to arrest them. The trick, as with all things, is to stay calm and not become a stereotype.

    Harrass me and take a chance. In Ohio you are allowed to carry your CCW while hunting as long as it is conceiled and not the weapon you are hunting with.

    In NYS of all places, harrassing and driving game animals is hunting.
    So the anti hunters are hunting without a license.

    You think some emails from hunters to the fella might help? I kinda think an offer to send him some homemade jerky would be a nice ice breaker! LOL! This is one of the radicals we need to really watch, in the future. He thinks he's the only man in the world with the right answers, and that all us little dumb folks should fall on our knees in worship. I have an awful surprise for the man! He's an egotistical maniac who lives on an artificial diet, being a "vegan", and he seriously needs to see a professional for some help! He thinks his diet is the only way to live, and wants to force it onto the rest of us. And I'm really wondering what he plans to do with the overpopulation, if he got his way! They never seem able to articulate a plausible alternative to hunting or culling. It's always "nature takes care of it's creatures"! Yes it does, in a brutal way, by starving them in the thousands as they overgraze the land! Is that the more humane way? I think I'll set up a temporary email address, and have a conversation with the goof!
