A post on another part of this forum advocating getting on facebook and signing up to ban a particular form of hunting got me to thinking - I must not be nearly self centered enough. I have never been on facebook, so I might need some help setting that up, and I have never been good at being self centered, so redirect me if I stray. I think since we, the users of this forum, are obviously the experts in all subjects related to hunting, we could set up a facebook page and have all of us post what we think would best suit each of our own self centered well being, and then what ever is left, we could petition the G&F to straighten out the hunting regs. Just post what you think needs to change from current regs. I will start: Deer hunting - 4 pt on a side or better, gun season - one week mid Nov., 4 days Thanksgiving, one week mid December, no dogs, no baiting, no caliber less than .24, proficiency test - 3 shots, less than ten inch group off hand at 100 yrds. Proficiency test of archery - traditional or compound - 3 shot, 6 inch group at 50 yrds. Duck Hunting - no shell longer than 3", limited permit only Bayou Meto Turkey - One gobbler limit (jake or adult), season opens on Saturday closest to Apr 1 (next year, after I retire, I want that changed to a Monday opener) - 21 days, no calls in the woods before season opens. Hog/Varmit - .30 cal or less legal year round, snares legal near a fence, coyote/varmit legal at night on your own property, trapping legal year round And make sure you get your wive's, girlfriends/boyfriends, kids, dogs and cats to sign on facebook and post their likes and dislikes, since we need some input from the non-hunting public. And if you can't tell, this was done tongue in cheek - but this is exactly what this forum is becoming. If we each demanded our own self centered desires, and everyone's request was considered, there probably would not be any hunting left that would suit us all. You probably don't like the way I hunt and I probably don't like the way you hunt. Guys (and girls), we are all hunters and all in this together. There is strength in numbers and we hunters are in the minority to begin with. There is still room for all of us. Next time somebody kills a small 8pt, or kills a duck with a spinner, or shoots a deer with a mechanical broadhead, be glad for them - chances are, you are doing something they don't like, either. I think a good New Years resolution for hunters would be to support each other, and quit badmouthing somebody because they hunt in a way different than you.
