Wisconsin: Where we shoot cats and mourning doves

Postby CubsFan7724 » Mon Apr 11, 2005 11:10 pm

Every day I get more and more embarrassed to live in the "great state" of Wisconsin. Not only is it filled with drunken Packer fans, we need something else to hunt when it isn't deer season. But at least deer can be eaten. A few years ago we legalized hunting mourning doves (the state bird of peace, which we now blow away with shottys for no reason :-b Irony?) and now there is a proposal to legalize shooting stray cats. The reason? They kill the local bird population. Of course we are the ones shooting mourning doves :-D What logical purpose does this serve? Not to add in the safety dangers. You are now going to have idiots shooting guns off randomly at stray cats. 1 month before someone gets killed. Guaranteed. And in urban areas. Unbelievable. Im not against guns or hunting, but this is real ridiculous and is hunting for the sake of hunting, not correcting mistakes like when we killed all the wolves (more Wisconsin stupidity), therefore sending the deer population spiraling upwards. As soon as Im 18, I am such a ghost. :-b

Heh, maybe they need to legalize the cat thing here in Texas. But, really, cats don't bother a thing. They cover up their crap, so you don't have to worry about that, not saying that I wouldn't like to take some target practise on a few strays :-D . The dove thing I am all for though. Doves are acctually really good to eat ;-D

i wish Chicago would OK pigeon "hunting". I'd love to be able to bring a shotgun to the L stop every day on the way to work and get about 30 birds with several little round metal stones as they're all grouped together, cooing and running through the mounds of their own guano, letting disease fester in their feathers........... ugh.

I could never imagine eating a dove. No meat on that thing...

Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.

If women didn't have that thing between their legs. Males would figure out a way to legalize hunting them. :-)

As for cats. Honestly. Its a cat.
I always get a kick out of people saying, "Ooohh I had to spend $1200°° on my cat cus of this or that" ..
Its a cat!
They are a dime a dozen.
and best of all, they probably won't even cost you that dime.
If your cat gets sick, ya get a new one, how difficult is that?

How long before someone's cat is outside and mistakenly thought to be a "stray" and some guy shoots someone else's cat?

DHC, how old are you? I always thought you were like 30 8-o

I know rockabilly music isn't for everyone, but for a state to encourage hunters to open fire on Brian Setzer, Slim Jim Phantom and Lee Rocker is just wrong.

Sorry... the 80s fan in me couldn't resist. B-)

thats the first thing I thought of too blankman - its only a matter of time before someones beloved cat is mistaken for a nonbeloved cat. !+)

Im not a cat guy, so I cant say Im disapointed - they should have been done away with years ago - its not like they contribute anything positive to this world anyway. :-b
