The recent comments from Bob Barker in relation to the supposed danger of hunting near residential areas really set me off the other day. But now a Virginia court has ruled in favor of hunter’s rights to be in these areas. This ruling really sets an important precedent regarding the legitimacy and safety of allowing urban bow hunts. I’m particularly excited about this because I myself bow hunt hunt inside a semi-urban area and I’m glad that there is now a court ruling in favor of my right to do just that. You can read the full story on this court ruling at The Rub Line.
As Fred Bear said, “If you are not working to protect hunting, then you are working to destroy it.” With strong support from the hunting community, we can continue to protect our rights to hunt and ensure that we’ll be able to pass this great tradition on to the next generation.
