Here is a bit of nostalgia from years gone by yet the message is still poignant today. This is an excerpt from a recent column in The Citizen compiled by David Wilcox.
"Fish and Game Protector Willard A. Hoagland is concerned with the misuse of high power rifles. He reported to the State Forest, Fish and Game League in 1915, that since the opening of the hunting season there have been five horses shot in the town of Scipio alone by hunters carrying rifles afield. One of the horses, belonging to James Smart who resides not far from Mapleton, died as a result of the bullet wound. The horse was a good one and Mr. Smart had sold it for $175."
This 2020 hunting season please follow safety procedures to reduce reckless endangerment of human life and wild game.
