let the games begin, as opening weekend of rifle season begins across the northwest many jeepers are ecstatic. however I and many of those I wheel with are disappointed. not because we hate hunting, far from it as a hunter myself I completely understand. opening weekend though, is amature hour. every idiot drunk with a gun is up on trails I drive all year, throwing trash around, leaving bones or in some cases full carcasses out to rot. this type of behavior is what puts a bad image in the minds of many about our way of life. outdoor recreation is endangered, endangered by yahoos who do not know just whats at stake. so for anybody going out hunting this weekend or any other, please think safety and responsibility , we want to continue using our land and enjoying the outdoors.
