Killing Animals for no reason.

I just read an article about some teens from Minnesota that killed 100 Coots

Two juvenile teen brothers from Laporte and another juvenile teen from Akeley have been fined $1,600 and placed on probation after pleading guilty on Feb. 4 to killing 109 American Coots. Coots are defined as migratory game birds and protected by both state and federal law.


I really believe that kids today are being desensitized to violence and killing by video games and media. I think if more kids got off the couch and out in the field with a parent or mentor that could teach them the value of conservation these types of things wouldn't happen as often. What's your take on the issue?

Hunters and Fisherman Raise Millions For Conservation

U.S. Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar has announced the distribution of more than $740 million to 56 state and territorial fish and wildlife agencies to fund fish and wildlife conservation efforts, boat access, shooting ranges, and hunter education.

The Funds are generated by federal excise taxes on purchases of firearms, ammunition, archery, and angling equipment and boat motor fuels.

It's great to see some of that money going back into conservation.
