Stupid bleeding heart liberal. If it bothers you so much don't go and watch. Your probally against hunting and probally want the government to take our guns away too. I am a member of PETA to (People who eat tasty animals). I'm sure the Lebanon Scandal Sheet will take this down, They only care about the "Democrats" view on things.

wow... the pigeon shoot has non-existed for several years now. The "activists" stopped it

funny thing is, the x-number of years they were involved brought in more money than 200 more years worth of what it was like before they got involved.... go figure?

What a strange way to enjoy the day - watching grown men shoot animals who are thrown up right in front of them.

I sure would not want these seedy events in my backyard, and I can't imagine that many Pennsylvanians do either.

I enjoyed the protesters more than the shoot, sadly their presance there tied up a lot of EMS personnel...

You are a sick puppy. But then you would probably enjoy seeing one tied up and shot. That is the name of the game with people like you. It has nothing to do with hunting but watching an animal flop around in pain and smacking each other on the back going "Oh Yeah now were having fun." You are not a hunter. You are just someone that gets off on seeing something suffer and you get to be a part of it. What's wrong tc, parents didn't love you so you take it out on the animals. Poor boy.

Back up a bit. I was refering to the amount of EMS needed to be available due to the size of the event. I neither condon or condem the shooting of pigeons. And yes I did hunt in my youth and shot one rabbit, however the rule was if you shoot it you eat it. Mom made it for me and I could not eat it, kept seeing the little bunnies eyes looking at me,so now I just goe to the store and by meat. My parents loved me enough to become a better parent to my children.
I will say this absent the protester spitting on me when he became ill from the heat, I really do miss the food, it was great...
Clear it up for you Makita( Good tools by the way )

Oh wait Nate, you are saying you eat pidgeon meat? If so cool. However I find it highly doubtful. One can be for guns and anti killing for the hell of it. Seriously, can you not come up with something better than "stupid bleeding heart liberal"? That's imensly intelligent debate tactics. I know you weren't referring to me, but killing for sport I am most definitively against. Causing pain to another living being just for shits and giggles is not my idea of a good time. But if one is hunting to feed their family and being respectful of that animal and putting it down as quickly as possible I find no problem whatsoever with that. The pigeon shoot is not about feeding people. It is about senseless killing in the name of a buck and a beer.
