The point is the shooter didn't obey the law and some you are sticking up for him over the guy that merely wanted to retrieve his dog. The point is that the PETA connection in Ky. has tried for years to stop coonhunting and has put a mark on it by mostly doing away with shake out season. The point is that nobody is condoning trespassing, only that landowners be a bit tolerant of coonhunters and the right to retrieve hunting dogs when they enter their lands in the pursuit of game. The point is landowners don't need to bitch about animals eating them out of house and home if they can't let folks hunt and do something about it, this goes for coons as well. Coons eat as much corn a year as does a deer. The point is that some of you guys have missed the points?
