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

      You were in the right area, maybe just the wrong time.  I went out late this afternoon to see if the house my Dad has been using came through the "flood" OK and decided to drop a line when I was there. When I first dropped the hook down the hole a walleye screamed up off the bottom and slammed it 5 feet off the bottom. So out of curiosity I just sat there and jigged 4 to 5 feet off the bottom and they kept coming up and slamming it. They never touched the dead stick that was set 1 foot off the bottom.  All I can think of is that with the snow cover gone they could really see something up against the sunlight. I hadn't seen the walleyes that aggressive all winter.  maybe it was because I was fishing in a hole about 20 inches wide due to the water running down it.   No I don't think so cuz I have a big roll of duct tape and a bunch of white sheets. I'll wrap me, the Jeep and the dog in white sheets. We'll be just like ghosts.  OOPS, just remembered that the snow is all gone. I really think that after all the years we each could stick a pin in a lake  map guessing where the other one would be and we would each be within 1/4 mile. From his description fishing tech was right on the eastern edge of your favorite area.

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.
