At a recent Ann Arbor City Council meeting, I witnessed dozens of animal rights activists wearing red shirts to protest the city council's approval of a deer cull. There were numerous references to the "blood on the hands" of the city council members, and, predictably, even a Cecil the Lion reference. The people who want to take away our rights to hunt, fish and trap are loud and visible, so on September 9, we have to be loud and visible too.
Less than one week until small game season starts with the early Canada goose opener and teal season on September 1st. Less than one month until the Autumnal equinox. What does this mean? Fall is almost here. Fall is by far my favorite season of the year. I’m sure many of you can relate to this favoritism, after all, this season holds what many of us prepare for and look forward to throughout the year; hunting season. Many of us have been preparing for hunting season’s arrival since the last one ended.
