I hope they get a lot of protestors and wish them all good luck. From the comments by the hunters such as the previous post, they sound like scary violent people. I don't understand why a fire department would cater to that.

Don't think that will happen. Its usually Liberals and Obama lovers that go on mass shooting sprees. The facts don't lie

I have to question the morals of anyone that would either A) Participate in or allow their children to participate in the murdering of innocent animals B) The individuals who are sponsoring this event! This is murder no matter how you look at it..

I wish I could be there to protest. This is so sad. I have raised many squirrel's from babies and released them back into the wild. They have feelings to. They are capable of feeling love and pain. These people are sick and twisted.

Please stop this senseless slaughter and wrongful action of teaching children to play with guns, kill for fun and accept it as a family affair. What goes around comes around.

I think these children should be made to gut, skin and eat their own kill! And if you have one of these kids that has a pregnant female to gut, show no remorse, sadness, or any kind of feeling, that one should never be allowed to own any weapons ever!
I cannot believe this is being done! It is saddening and sickening! This is Not the way to teach children!!!!

When I was twelve, I went hunting with my father and we shot a bird.  He was laying there and something struck me.  Why do we call this fun to kill this creature [who] was as happy as I was when I woke up this morning.  ~Marv Levy

Whether hunting is right or wrong, a spiritual experience, or an outlet for the killer instinct, one thing it is not is a sport.  Sport is when individuals or teams compete against each other under equal circumstances to determine who is better at a given game or endeavor.  Hunting will be a sport when deer, elk, bears, and ducks are... given 12-gauge shotguns.  Bet we'd see a lot fewer drunk yahoos (live ones, anyway) in the woods if that happened.  ~R. Lerner, letter, Sierra, March-April 1991

* Until we have the courage to recognize cruelty for what it is--whether its victim is human or animal--we cannot expect things to be much better in this world...
-- Rachel Carson

* We cannot have peace among men whose hearts delight in killing any living creature. By every act that glorifies or even tolerates such moronic delight in killing we set back the progress of humanity.

In fact, if one person is unkind to an animal it is considered to be cruelty, but where a lot of people are unkind to animals, especially in the name of commerce, the cruelty is condoned and, once large sums of money are at stake, will be defended to the last by otherwise intelligent people.

When all the trees have been cut down,
when all the animals have been hunted,
when all the waters are polluted,
when all the air is unsafe to breathe,
only then will you discover you cannot eat money.
