    Fellow bowhunters help fight back

    ]Another attack on hunting by the antis....hat tip CBH newsletter;


    NO YOU CAN’T SHOOT AT 3-D ANIMAL TARGETS
    Now the Animal Rights Groups don’t want Archers to shoot at 3-D Animal Targets. Yep you read that correctly.

    There was a recent ruling at the El Dorado Archery
    Range, by the Long Beach Parks and Recreation
    Department, that disallows the placement of...and
    shooting at... 3D animal targets in front of the butts on
    this range.

    This is a practice that has been enjoyed by
    target archers and bowhunters for years without
    problems. This ruling was based upon two women who
    had observed an archery class being taught by Marcus
    Bossett. They were aghast at seeing youth shooting at
    3D Animal Targets and demanded that the park stop
    this terrible practice.

    The “terribly offensive” class is
    called “Instinctive Archery” and Marcus has been using
    his own personal 3D targets for his students to shoot at
    so they know how to shoot and score all of the
    tournaments held in California which includes the 3D
    tournaments.

    These two women managed to cause a
    sweeping policy change that includes the entire archery
    range and anyone who comes to enjoy it.

    Followup; CBH is working to reverse this ruling

    I will post the link and please send an email expressing you won't visit the long beach area because of this absurd ruling. The more voices heard, the better chance for a rule change. Thanks

    I don't even know what to say about this... I thought they would do craY things, but really?
    Now therefore, please take your weapons, your quiver and your bow, and go out to the field and hunt game for me.

    Yep, but they wouldn't have a problem with human zombie targets or kids sitting on a computer playing a game killing other people.
