    Should felons be able to bowhunt Utah?

    In most states felons can bowhunt, not Utah however.

    Martha Stewart can't own a gun, what her crime has to do with guns/violence is beyond me, and why she wouldn't be allowed to bowhunt Utah doesn't make much sense if you ask me.

    Martha Stewart Hunts!? How come I don't see camo pattern bedsheets, and a recipe book specifically for wild game??


    J/K....Common sense tells me if they have aleady paid there debt to society and don't have a history for violence there should be no problem.

    I definitely think that as long as the crime is not violence related and they did their time, they should be able to bowhunt. I would love to bowhunt with Martha Stewart, I'd bring the drinks if she brought the snacks!! yummmm.. Could you imagine eating a 5 layer chocolate cake with raspberries so lightly baked in and some sort of truffles on top and fudge melted over everything.. Beats the heck out of the stale jerky I usually take.

    I don't think I am going to spend too much time worrying about the hunting rights of felons.

    I'm with you Bitterroot Bulls. I don't want to seem insensitive to felons but I kind of see it as, when you screw up that bad, you lose some rights.

    I play by the rules to respect myself, my profession, my employer and most of all my family. It is how I was raised and how I raise my family... Respect yourself and others. And along with this comes rewards in all aspects of life. And if you don't then you are not rewarded.

    So therefore... No, I do not

    I find it totally laughable Utah would ban felons when they condone a boatload of thieves running their own Hunt Expo in SLC! Don Peay is 1,000X the white collar criminal as any thug caught robbing a 7-11 ! Go figure.

    The human brain doesn't stop developing until about age 25.

    It would be very interesting to see a study of 1 time felons who committed a crime when younger than 25 who have gone on to never commit a crime after 25.

    To claim every "criminal" knows they're committing a crime prior to choosing to do so is ignorant if you ask me. Back to teenagers sexting and hooking up, I'm sure most don't know what's illegal or just how illegal something is. I highly doubt teenagers sexting even think it's illegal, let alone distributing child pornography.
