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

Let'em know, as hunters we will not stand for being slandered on the pages of their paper

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

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man met me on the lake today and I showed him I am a skilled angler! lol we had a great fish fry! My old man only added one crappie and 5 gills to the bunch

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
