    fieldofdreams,

    I would like to invite you and your "Hunting Club" over for dinner some night. We can sit and watch all the teenage boys and girls party it up and litter our wetlands and devastate our wildlife. Of course the main meal would have to be Roasted Ducks and Geese. Just got some fresh ones today so the pickins are good. Maybe for desert we will have one of them there taxpayer raised pheasants their reeeeeeeeeal sweeeeet...

    BTW You related to O.J. ?

    " We are legal hunters " yep we're all innocent.. Give me a break... Clue us in how many years have you been a " Washington citizen" as a born and raised here it is my land as well and I have as many rights to it as you.

    <br />If "Washington citizens are tired of camoflaged, armed terrorists littering their wetlands and devastating their wildlife. " Then why is it the only time we see you out on these lands is to harras and sabotage us and our children. I surely don't see your club out there in the off season with the Volenteer groups cleaning up the areas and making sure that the birds have good nesting grounds..

    There has to be some legal recourse here. Their stated aim is to disrupt hunters. That is harassment. Why isn't the Washington Fish and Game going after them? Maybe the Washington hunter's groups should force the issue at a higher level than the local CO.

    Just my .02, but I'd sure hate to see this kind of crap spread.

    field of dreams, we're so sorry to have disappointed you. But has it ever occurred to you that disappointment is a two-way street? A lot of these folks are pretty disappointed in you, for failing to realize that it's none of your business whether we duck hunt or not.

    While I can't speak for all of my fellow hunters, I can certainly speak for myself and a lot of the people I hunt with when I say that part of the whole hunting experience -- and in fact, part of the way we choose to lead our lives outside of hunting -- hinges on letting the 'other guy' do his own thing. We are aware -- and you could stand to learn -- that while you may not like what someone else is doing, most of the time it's none of your business to tell him what he should be doing. Those other hunters in the marsh? They're grown men and women, and while you might not like it, they're entitled to make their own decisions. <br />Grown-ups don't need folks like you (or me) telling them what to do.

    Think of it this way. When you go to animal-rights-groups confabs -- or for that matter, try to enjoy the company of your family and friends, doing what you enjoy most -- do duck hunters stand in your way and screw up the works, as you're doing to them? Not a bit, and if you think they do, might I suggest you're being a wee bit oversensitive to the presence and activities of other people? Try relaxing a little bit... I hope that you'll find life is more enjoyable when you don't feel the need to butt in and disrupt other people's pursuit of happiness.

    Plenty of people -- be they duck hunters, non-hunters, or what have you -- need to learn to mind their own business. I don't come into your most sacred places and disrupt what you're doing there; if you cannot afford me that same respect, it does not speak very highly of you or your peers. And frankly, while your noisome, polluting tactics may win you some recognition among your anti-hunting colleagues -- who I would imagine represent a "pretty insignificant," albeit very vocal, constituency themselves -- to the rest of the world, your acts seem petty and childish. So do yourselves -- and us -- a favor: Stop making spectacles of yourselves, and lead your own lives without trying to stick your nose in what everyone else is doing. It's none of your business, and your input and advice are not welcome.

    fieldofdreams,

    I have personally spent over $350 this year on Wetland conservation by making contributions to groups like Ducks Unlimited.

    I'm a Board member in a local conservation group called "Netley Marsh Waterfowl Foundation"

    I support Ducks Unlimited by attending dinners and shooting events.

    I take kids out to the wetlands around my home and teach them to appreciate the few wild places left in this world.

    This kind of list goes on and on...

    Where is your group when the dirty work needs to be done? Where is your group when North America's wetlands are being drained?

    I'll tell you where, sitting in some little hole thinking up ways to sabotage conservationists. Yes, I do mean hunters. Hunters WERE the first conservationists and the FIRST to start groups like Ducks Unlimited.

    With out Ducks Unlimited many ducks species may have died out in the dust bowl 30's. Along with many other kinds of wildlife.

    Saving a couple ducks from big mean hunters is great for the ducks, but where are they going to lay their eggs come spring if that pothole you scared them away from is paved over with a Starbucks and the last of the duck hunters has died.....

    It will be a sad day, and one I hope I will never see, at least not with out a fight. While there is still a breath in this body, I will never give up the fight!

    Hope you stick around, and don't get turned off by what people might say. We are fighting for the same thing, we are just doing it different ways.

    Chris

    Hope you showup when I'm hunting near there. I'll press the harassment charges and to heck with the publicity. You should have been charged with harrassment for that boat of yours but thats what you get for duck hunting in a pheasant release site.

    Hope you put as much $$$ into wildlife as I do. I hope you enjoy the refuges I paid for. Or the nesting structure I built. I'm happy you bought a duck stamp cause all that money helps. I also hope you are a vegetarian 'cause if you are not your argument is FOS.

    The Holier-than-thou attitude of some anti-hunting groups never ceases to amaze me. "I think this way, so I'm right" is what they all want to think and say. If Fieldof is to be believed, his group has never broken a law, even tho they pretty much admit to harassing hunters, which is a crime in most states now. He offers lots of words, but little or no proof of any of his wordss. Don't know how it works in WA, but in Wis the put and take pheasants aren't paid for with tax dollars but with hunting license dollars. I see non-hunters (and hunters, I'm sure) throwing junk and cig butts out car windows everyday. Yet, you want to just blame hunters for your problems. Must be nice to feel you are always in the right, and have enough time on your hands that you can waste your time trying to mess up someone elses life. Try taking your kid to a ballgame once and leave the people alone that leave you alone.
