    The most dangerous animals are in places like Camden, NJ. The murder rate is absolutely incredible there. That's what happens when democrats take over a city. It's going to happen to the whole country now I guess..

    @dances-weebles I don't know if they have any bull on the land in question, but that would feed the extended family as well. (You know, the ones who moved in because they lost their jobs as well.)

    @Jeff_Woehrle the majority of unemployed are urbanites... not exactly the sort that one would want wandering around in the woods with a gun.

    Sen Charles Grassley (R - Iowa) is going to introduce some sort of legislation to extend the deer season in Iowa because he thinks too many deer v auto accidents have been happening.

    But there's apparently another approach to wildlife management. http://youtu.be/RFCrJleggrI

    ROFLMAO! How do you find this stuff? You must have waaaayyy too much time on your hands! I could hear the radio guy in the background struggling to supress his laughter. And this woman probably votes! Sheesh!

    @Denizen_Kate This was all over the web about six weeks ago. He didn't have to dig for it at all. Yes, she probably did vote.

    @martydotcom
    Is that a 5.56 or a 7.62? One of those is illegal to hunt large game with and a 40 round clip is unfamiliar to me, so just to be safe(no body wants a game warden knocking on their door) I would try some type of deer repelant instead of your gun. Maybe I should suggest you invest in some in a shooting range before you take on the wild as well..just for the safety that hunt responsibly!

    I don't hunt myself, I'm too much of a sissy city girl, but I have friends who bow hunt, and believe me, I want them to be around when the zombie apocalypse happens. ;-)

    I like the idea of opening up more land for hunters, but don't like the idea of funding for public shooting ranges. There are private ranges already. If people can afford ammunition, they can afford to support private ranges.

    Yes, I do agree with the legislation. But then I live in Maine. It won't affect us one way or the other. With the exception of Rhode Island, Maine has the least acreage (1.1%) as a percentage the total area of any state under Federal control. More land is privately owned in Maine than most of the states. This is a law for the west. But I still think it should happen. The Feds have entirely too much land posted "No trepassing".

    in this day and age nobody needs to hunt for food. the only thing that hunting does is to feed people's need to kill something.

    @dances-weebles hardly. almost all the meat i eat is what i catch. far better than the chemically grown crap in the grocery stores...

    iwas just in Maine for the first time last month! Beautiful. the woods look just like back home here in northern MN. i was very surprised to learn that the timber companies own most of the northern land there.

    Eastport is a cute little town..reminded me a lot of Grand Marais MN...

    @dances-weebles nobody NEEDS to no, but those that DO are keeping alive essential survival skills that we never know when they may be needed again. Granted, I think a LOT of modern hunters (in the U.S. at least) would be lost without their blinds and camo, modern bows and guns etc.

    @dances-weebles - In Maine Hunting and fishing supports wildlife Habitat aquisition, Habitat maintenance, and helps to keep our wildlife populations from getting out of control. As far as Mainers just hunting for the kill, that is just not so. Maybe the hunters from away who pay exorbitant high prices for a Maine license might want that 8 point trophy for over the fireplace, Mainers generally eat their kills. Many poor rural folks here rely on poached meat as a integral part of their diet. Hunting in Maine adds huge dollars to areas that can really use the infusion of cash from hunting guides, camp rentals, boat rentals, and local restaurants. Hunting and fishing are a vital part of Maine's economy.

    Absolutely...hunters and fishermen have always been great stewards of wildlife populations, the forests, and waterways.

    @woodtick57 If you are talking about "bag limits" you need to actually look at the hunting regulations. Each state has its own wildlife control regulations. And, I tell you this, they are ridgidly enforced. In addition, hunters, fishermen and landowners readily assist in this enforcement. "Outlaw hunters and fishermen" are not part of the mainstream. And, neither is any industry that threatens this resource and its environment.

    @seedtick You'd be surprised! i certainly was when i semi-retired and started spending most of my time in the woods up here in northern MN. the number of hunter/fisherman that feel the limits set by our DNR are infringements on their rights and only obey them through the threat of heavy fines, if they obey them at all, really blew away my old opinion of "a few bad apples''.

    @dances-weebles Oh My Freakin' God! Grouse opener up here is ridiculous. I end up with AT LEAST a huge garbage bag full after the first weekend. and that is just on the eight miles of road i have to plow and maintain into my property!

    Sociological study results: most hunters drink cheap beer....

    By now vast parts of the U.S are becoming quite densely populated as well and I would say that the time is not there for relaxation of the hunting rules. It might work in countries like Norway, Finland and Sweden (I know that f.i Norway also enjoys the system of the everyman's right or freedom to roam but that does't include free hunting). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freedom_to_roam

    Do it! We need to get our kids to put down their tablets and phones and pick up rods and rifles to learn how to use them properly. Who will pass those skills on to the future generations!?!?!?

    I think that people who use shooting ranges should be the ones to pay for them. There are more pressing issues at hand than improving hunting conditions,although consolidation of previous legislation would be beneficial.
