Oh Deer, Wear Your Hunting Gear....

A group of Amish men were charged in Wisconsin today for hunting without wearing the bright orange blazes.  This is a pretty "garden variety" church-state clash.  The hunters say they aren't wearing the bright orange due to their religious beliefs (and they were on private property), while the state says "no way."   Last week in Ohio an Amish man was shot when a father mistook his son for a wild turkey in the brush. Sheesh, I think they should just wear the blazes.....

Re: Oh Deer, Wear Your Hunting Gear....

Since this happened on private property,It shouldn' t matter what they wear.  The amish men were right,and should have been left alone to do their thing!

Re: Oh Deer, Wear Your Hunting Gear....

Yea, I do have a problem with the government coming in on private property and regulating how hunters hunt...although I wish common sense would prevail and they'd just wear the orange blazes.....just like I'm not sure that the government needs to mandate motorcycle helmets, instead, common sense should just prevail and people should wear them....So, when common sense, though, doesn't prevail, should the government step in and legislate it? I'll have to mull it over....

See this is where I have a problem at,  Call it what you want BUT, I really don't think the Creator gives a hoot if I wear a orange suit hunting or if I wear a giant playtex diaper...You could carry it even farther too, how about some Amish believing you should only have 1 bullet in your gun and others believe thats no 3 is ok...Where do you stop?

I have to say I agree with you whole heartedly Wink
