I Can't Get No Satisfaction

This letter made me laugh... There has been a hunting battle brewing in the Deseret News This is a letter from a few days ago that helps put it all into perspective.

Satisfaction in hunting?

I'm going to have to agree with Wendy Mair (Readers' Forum, Feb. 2). Hunting is indeed extremely honorable and satisfying. Not many hobbies or recreations serve the honor or gratification I feel when I blow a small animal away with my shotgun.

Illegal poaching is indeed reprehensible and abhorrent, but we enlightened hunters are continually researching and developing more improved, humane ways to blast a hole in an animal.

Hunting is also a great way to bond with your children. Nothing says "I love you, son" like sharing the heartfelt moment of discharging a slug into a doe. I also hope that this legislation passes. Our young children need to escape the distraction of simulated violence and gore in today's video games and movies and experience them in real life.
