It was a new stamp requirement. Hunting rules/regulations/tags are
as complicated as the IRS forms. It says something when you can afford a
staff to do your paperwork and they still can't figure it out.
Requiring anything other than the owner's permission to hunt or fisah on
private property is assinine.
You don't understand the purpose of game management, idiot.
You still planning on hunting quail with #4 steel shot?
Is it still not the responsibility of the guy that pulls the trigger for
where the shot lands?
Don't know a thing about hunting, do you? Idiot
OK, you're saying that:
1. Game manegement practices don't apply on private land.
Some do. Release birds usually don't apply. They are 'farm' raised.
2. Quail is typically hunted with #4 steel shot.
Eep! Who would claim that? That my housegun load. Just heavy enough to penetrate clothing, and just light enough to be stopped by wallboard and insulation from a distance, or slow enough it can't reach my nearest neighbor (120ft or so) with any lethal force left in it.
3. The guy the pulls the trigger isn't responsible for where the shot goes.
Of course he is. I though Chaney made that perfectly clear.
On the other hand, there is a "pedestrian outside the crosswalk and stepping into traffic suddenly" question here. Did the victim in fact walk into the field of fire in a manner that put him at some risk by his own actions? We don't really know that.
I had a guy nearly do that to me on a deer hunt. I was following a running buck and the hunter on my left ran forward thinking he was going to get the shot and came into my field of fire. Had he been on my right and the buck transversing the other way than he was (I'm right handed) chances are very good I would not have seen him, right elbow up and all, for steadiness of aim, and squeezed off a shot based on the location of all members of the hunting party at the moment of drawing sight on the running buck.
Normal hunters know to hold back out of the field of fire until the shoot is made, or passed up on.
And you call me an idiot?
Sure, why not. You probably are one. World is full of them. They think they know everything, and have an opinion on it all, often far off the mark, and way out of touch with reality.
In this particular case?
I think Chaney was at fault just as he said he was. Low flying quail (I've hunted them extensively) in a hunting party setting should be allowed to fly free without fire. But then, only a few human beings, such as yourself, are perfect.
If you must.
AS for the bird stamp. I've read that in fact this same error was repeated by many hunters due to a TX game department snafu.
Hope all works out well for you as you sort out reality.
Isn't it interesting that the more honest an author appears to be,
the more like ourselves we think him. And the less so, how very
alien he doth appear? Kane 2006
