    tell that to my friend whose grad student was murdered by irresponsible hunters.

    meanwhile, back in the real world, hunters are as a group pretty irresponsible when it comes to preserving wildlife. Look at all the furor over the lead ban.  This comment is a joke bit of propaganda.

        She was a plant ecology grad student at VPSU doing research out in western viriginia and got mistaken for a deer.  I worked with her advisor a few years after that.  I myself used to find piles of spend shells and vodka bottles out where I was doing my research.  Bears are bad, but hunters are worse.

    •  we are invaded by hunters every season (0+ / 0-)

      I have a friend who works in a hotel-just off the thruway-in upstate NY. She dreads hunting season. Every hunting season, swarms of hunters invade her place of work. Not only is she subjected too daily sexist comments, they leave the rooms a mess and strewn with empty bottles and cans and porn zines. I am so sure these people are paragons of environmentalism when they are in the woods.

      Sorry to hear about the incident you describe.
