I am not an extremist environmentalist. I have done my share of hunting, game of sufficient size to make at least one meal at my table. How many doves make a meal?
At one time hunting was a necessity, and then it became a recreational way to obtain additional meat for the table. I began hunting in the 1930s, and I still like to hunt. I enjoy the change of fare on my table. You need to recognize, sir, that hunting today is a privilege, not a right, and certainly not a necessity. Along with that privilege goes some responsibility. To hunt just to kill, or solely for trophies, is not acceptable. You don't need additional targets, regardless of what has been done in other states, and no one has said there is an overabundance of doves affecting the balance in the environment.
Remember this well--hunting is a privilege, not a right.
PS: You may forward my message to your legislators, if you like. By the way, what's your real name?
