It might be time to take a break . . .

I just finished critiquing a student essay on the right to bear arms.  I just had a brainwave:  I think I’ll write a piece called “The Right to Arm Bears!”  It could be a Green-piece! 🙂

I’m thinking it may be time to take a break. 🙂

    Oh dear… I think you are right! Though I will admit to being curious….

    Hey, way up here there are many t-shirts sporting “armed bears” and other gun-totin’ parodies and slogans. It’s the beginning of hunting season, you know…

    • Save the animals! If people really need it for food, I am not opposed. But I do really hate the “sport” for trophies. I may start a movement–if I can leave my computer. 🙂

        Up here it’s 95% hunting for food. Most areas are overrun with an abundance of animals that won’t make it through the winter, etc. Limits are set in specific areas with specific requirements per tag: one male deer at least two years old, etc. We know many people who will purchase tags for several deer, several antelope, and an elk, and they’ll end up with 400 lbs of meat and never buy any other meat all year. It’s the cheapest way to acquire protein, period. Many hunters donate some of their meat to churches, and the churches will pass on the meat to those needing food, too. Personally, Terry and I are still working on the recipes…and we’re still NOT THAT acclimated to all the different tastes. So… we’re okay with eating bison, elk, and some antelope. We’ve given up trying to like deer and big horn sheep. Wolves has been partially delisted this year and only 52 can be shot. Terry (along with 1,800 other people) purchased a tag for a wolf. The restrictions are many, and it will be very difficult to find one, much less find one in a legal area, etc. etc. etc. Their population has grown way beyond the federal requirements. There are SEVERAL reasons to limit their population, but none of those limits made sense to me until I moved here and heard from those most impacted by the explosion in the wolf population. Needless to say, Terry might go out once or twice to try and find one, but really, his chances are slim to none. Truthfully, it’s just an excuse for him to spend a few days out in the beautiful wilderness areas around here.

        • I know in Ontario protection of wolves have caused explosions of growth and jeopardized other animals and livestock. Balance is hard. Probably what bothers me most is when folks catch big fish, take the picture, then throw it back in after its suffering. I dislike that kind of “sport.”

    Does this mean that you are headed to the woods with your trusted camera to hunt down an armed bear for this new piece? I’d love to hear the story of that adventure!

  7. Yeah.. you might need to take a quick break.. but honestly, I was just picturing a teenager with bear arms, so maybe you’re fine. 🙂

I would love to hear from you!
