Hunting A Family Activity That Teaches Responsibility


Having read the Tuesday, Dec. 28 issue of the Payson Roundup's letters to the editor, I couldn't believe that there are individuals who have nothing better to do than to complain about young hunters and their kills.

When these young hunters are out in the woods with either a parent or grandparent, they're learning to hunt and what firearms or bows and arrows should be used for.

For instance, my son is 20 years old. He has been in the woods hunting since he was 10 years old, and I don't see him driving up and down through town, shooting holes in buildings. Nor did he go to school and open fire on classmates. I wonder if the young people (who've done such things) were brought up hunting in the woods.

I'd like to take this time to congratulate all the young hunters and what they're doing.
