AZ: PETA Requests Ban on Hunting by Youth

Last week I took my 11 & 14 year old sons out Quail hunting. All three of us have taken hunter safety courses & I was very proud of the responsible way that they followed safe & ethical hunting practices. We had a lot of fun, and we even managed to harvest some very tasty Quail for our dinner table. PETA recently sent a letter to Arizona Governor Napolitano asking her to support legislation that would ban anyone under the age of 18 from hunting. They argued that hunting animals somehow translates into hunting people. I don't know about you, but even though I've recently been shooting at quail I still have not had any urges to shoot at people, not even at the members of PETA that wrote the letter.

Personally, I like the hat that says "PETA: People Eating Tasty Animals" - it fits well because the Quail were indeed very tasty, and I am most certainly in favor of eating tasty animals.

It's because PETA understands what the Communists, 60's radicals, and homosexuals before them have all understood- the key to winning your argument and changing society's view isn't with the current generation. Every group I mentioned targets the youth; the NEXT generation. That's why I was so dismayed to see so few young shooters at GRPC 2008.

If PETA got their way, and youth hunting was banned, it gives them time to make kids squeamish about it.

Spot on Eric. If they could manage to ban hunting for youth they would put a major brake in the normal flow of hunting traditions & values from parents to children from generation to generation. My children had a great time & can't wait for our next adventure. If they had to wait until they turned 18 they'd have much less interest or time to go hunting with their Dad.

As scientists amass data, chimpanzees are moving closer towards human. They are sentient, self-aware beings with strong cognitive skills and a proven ability to communicate, reason, express emotions, adapt, and even manipulate and deceive. With genetic material 98.5% identical to that of humans, chimpanzees are more similar to people than gorillas. sphunting
