    • On July 06, 2011, by bookworm0618 - I support this bill and I no some people will be thinking, "Why hunters are some of the greatest conservationist." And I am glad that there are hunters. Without them many states would be overpopulated with deer and such. But I am not a fan of hunters that hunt exotic and sometimes even endangered species, sometimes in fenced in areas. In my opinion that just defeats the purpose anyways. Several species have already been hunted to extinction such as the Tasmanian tiger. Do we really need to repeat history???
