Why are we, as hunters, so naive?


Dear Woods-N-Water News:

It was very interesting to read "Letters from Our Readers!" How long it has taken for readers to finally wake up to the fact that the method of harvest, in the act of hunting, has created a major problem in creating unity among our fraternity for over half a century, it is evident that we now live in a world of fast movers, that demand a quick-fix and instant gratification from the people that govern (and manage) the state's wildlife resources.

Ma Nature provided the state with the best possible environment. We have pure water, we have a multitude of wetlands that keep it pure, that are state owned and the habitat that is needed to keep our Great Lakes state so special is a privilege that requires respect.

Since the Departments of the state were organized in the 20s, many people with a conservation ethic became the leaders in developing proper methods of how to protect or manage our natural resources for their days/time and for the next generations.

I ask your readers, are we so naive or so enclosed in our own little bubble that we refuse to accept the vision that was imparted by the conservation system? Are we willing to submit to the special interest groups that so skillfully manipulate our conservation commission (that have their position to do what is right for the resources) to accommodate their needs - to cut every corner to facilitate making them known as great hunters? Are we willing to keep standards, common sense, and ethics as a barometer to allow us to maintain being part of why the conservation system must be and why it must be accountable?

We are so privileged to now be part of efforts (put in place) by the early self-educated leaders of conservation! They had their feet on the ground and experienced what was necessary for Ma Nature's plan!

It's time to assess or look back to why we could be respected and a part of the conservation system that brought us to this point. History can repeat itself - concerned hunters are now defending the principals of why we are hunters.

Thanks
