[wisb] Re: Hunting threads

I find it disturbing that people get admonished on this listserv for speaking 
out against hunting and yet there's no such action preventing the praise of it 
let alone the remarks of how much fun one had "bagging" a bird others would 
rather see.

As Tom and others surmised, I was indeed away from the internet all day, or I 
would obviously have shut this down much sooner.  

(To show that I don't have a bias against hunting, I feel compelled to mention 
that many years ago, while Pheasant hunting with my late father, before I was 
really a birder, I saw my lifer Gray Partridge seconds before I bagged it.  I'm 
sure many of you just winced...)

And, since I'm in a nagging mood, I have noticed an awful lot of Wisbirdn posts 
lately which do not have a first AND last name and location appended to them - 
this is another list rule.  Long-timers get sick of me mentioning it, so recent 
subscribers please take note. Really - it's just not that difficult to remember.
