As expected the kill everything crowd voted to approve each killing proposal this year during the Conservation Congress voting. Here are a couple of notable votes:
Sandhill crane killing season: Yes-2559 No-1271
Allow killing of coyotes during gun deer season: Yes-2501 No-1048
Allow trappers to check weasel traps every four days rather than daily: Yes-1878 No-1133
Every increased killing measure was approved by wide margins. A measure to delay the start of the crow killing season was also approved because an earlier start is just too cold for these big tough guy “sportsmen.”
Here are the results:
There you have it folks. Each year we allow the hunters and trappers to increase their killing and the brutal methods by which they kill. We NEED to get involved in this and speak as a true majority. These meetings have become nothing more than “good old boy” gatherings where they rubber-stamp killing proposals. They are supposed to be PUBLIC hearing and we must get involved. We have another year until the next elections. Let’s mobilize and get actively involved. We cannot keep letting these people control every aspect of our wildlife and turn our lands into nothing more than killing grounds for their amusement.
