Shooting to end pheasant hunting

Joe Miele, New Paltz, N.Y., Vice President, The Committee To Abolish Sport Hunting

Saturday, January 12, 2008

A recent article (Pheasant hunting best served cold, 0 1/02) discussed winter pheasant hunting but failed to mention that hunters shoot these birds solely for pleasure, since pheasants are not a safety threat nor are they overpopulated or suffering from starvation. According to the Colorado Division of Wildlife, nearly 37,000 pheasants were killed by hunters during the 2006-2007 hunting season - this is a staggering number of lives destroyed in the name of recreation.

The time has come to bring about a new age of respect for wildlife and habitat that rejects violence and killing. The Division of Wildlife should replace its hunting programs with wildlife watching programs that could be financed through taxes on equipment used by wildlife watchers.

To bring about a new and long overdue era of managing wildlife and habitat for healthy populations and biodiversity, please visit

Why CO? - because of Boulder's base PETA residents?

37K birds. That many or more are shot opening day in some high density counties of SD.

Winter is a much greater killer of pheasants, they should focus their attacks on winter \:\)

oh wait that's what global warming is doing \:o

      So, what was YOUR ice show score of the day!? I'm heading down on Sunday to see what scraps I can dig up. Absolutely more excited than I should be considering the only ice I've seen so far is the kind that fits in a glass..

      Seeing it's only your second year find buddy to go with as rock said. I even bring a second set of dry clothes and footwear. I am to big mess with thin ice I need 6 inches as rick said early varies so much so some where there is half as much ice.    Safety gear check include ice cleats as i have seen enough broken arms happen. Check your gear test the vexilar hook it up and turn it on to see if it runs or just hook up the charger. I use the drill plate so I charge all my batteries and with blade protecter on I make sure it works. My little sled is ready to haul my gear.    I go light during early ice so fill so fill up my plactics container and restock my jig boxes. Make sure my set ups have new line and pick my favorite set ups to take with. I can add some photos later
