I'm writing in response of the horrible (letter) about the elk by Cherry Marron.
As a young hunter myself, this personally breaks my heart. What kind of sick person would kill such a beautiful animal just for the horns? Is this what our young hunters need to see as an example? I would think not.
Please, all members of the Payson community, along with everyone else in Arizona, don't let this happen again.

Editor's note: As mentioned in the Dec. 3 edition of the Roundup, the incident which resulted in the death of the elk was a vehicle accident, not due to hunters.
