Another Montana Affirmation

Upon entering the restroom at the training center I noticed the latest copy of Field and Stream magazine lying on the counter. The cover story is something along the lines of The 50 Greatest Guns Ever Made. The magazine happened to be opened to a story about a man from Alabama who while driving down the road encounter a deer frozen in his headlights. Apparently, he stopped, pulled his gun, shot the deer down, and drove on to his destination. I don’t think the magazine was endorsing this as responsible gun ownership but wow……

It was yet another reminder I am not in SF anymore where I have grown accustom to an environment like CNET who supports a transgender restroom/s. Amazing what you can learn about a company just from a trip to the bathroom.

In fairness to the state and my good friend Dan Rude, formerly of Montana, this state is beautiful. The mountains here are amazing and I wish I had more time to take in more of the area. Another plus, I may be dining on Elk steaks tonight — take that SF.

    Some people would refer to the “shooting of the dear” as population control and claim an animal on a slippery road is a definate human health risk. I’ve never shot a dear, but I know a few fellow Texans that wouldn’t find that article the least bit out of the ordinary – except they probably wouldn’t leave it. They’d process the meat, and mount the rack, and make up a fantastic hunting story.

    True dat Blaine. In Indiana, the overpopulation of deer causes many of them to die slow, painful deaths of starvation; they remedy that by having several deer hunts a year… I’m definitely an advocate of killing it and grilling it when it comes to hunting, but shooting a squirrel for no reason doesn’t seem like much of a sport to me. If you eat what you shoot, more power to you… Besides guns don’t kill people, people kill people. I slept with my M-16 in the Army for four years and believe me they are harmless if you treat the it with respect. Peace Brutha.

    Fellas….this has nothing to do with hunting. In fact, I feel hunting is a sport that, when practiced responsibility, serves a need. This is about responsible gun ownership. Do you truely feel that gunning down a roadblock out of inconvenience is a good thing? What if it was your dog…is that ok as well?

    FYI — the individual featured in the story was arrested.
