Re: “Hunting Near Homes Rattles Residents

Anyone saying it's the homeowners fault, you mind if I come over to your backyard and spin around while shooting a 12 gauge shotgun? If they bought the home any other time of the year that isn't hunting season, how would you know people would be standing downstream firing shotguns? Seems more like a residential area than one for hunting anyway.

Re: “Hunting Near Homes Rattles Residents

You shouldn't have built so close to public lands. I floated the river for the first time in years it's a shame all the houses along a once wilderness river when I was a kid, no one owns the river it's for all you shouldn't have built your home there if you can't share. I don't hunt either but know some who do and they actually leave a place cleaner than when they got there for the most part. Hunter's campers fishermen are usually good stewards of the land for the most part sure there's bad apples in every bunch, report them make them accountable don't take the rights away from everybody because of a few.

Re: “Hunting Near Homes Rattles Residents

If a distance of at least one mile is required to ensure safety, then why are people allowed to build homes so close to public lands? Why should a landowner's right to develop his property, let alone guarantee privacy, supersede the right of citizen's access to public lands that has existed for centuries? If you don't like fog, then don't move to the ocean.

In reality, you are at greater risk driving your car, or even sitting on your couch eating Cheetos.

Re: “Hunting Near Homes Rattles Residents

The obvious problem is the inadequate distance of 150 yards from private property or occupied public property that shooting is not allowed by federal law. This distance should be increased to one mile in order to provide for the safe use of firearms. One mile is the distance that the NRA stated that a .22 could be dangerous, back when the NRA cared about gun safety. 36 CFR 261.10 (d) (1) - Occupancy and use, needs to be changed to one mile. This has been an obvious flaw in public safety for decades and is the basis of the problems stated in this article. All other jurisdictions would automatically change to respect federal supremacy.

Re: “Hunting Near Homes Rattles Residents

State law already requires a safe buffer zone between hunters and residences, and it sounds as if this law has been respected. If not, then those hunting too close should be cited.

It sounds like residents simply want to pre-empt use of public lands to expand their own back yards. I did not hear hunters complaining of the loss of wildlife or habitat, or the noise resulting from the construction of your home and the negative impacts of non-hunting activities on their own. National Forests are the Lands of Many Uses, where the concept of multiple use ensures maximum enjoyment for all rather than just a few. Let the hunters have their brief time in the field during waterfowl season and residents may have quiet walks during the rest of the year.

Re: “Hunting Near Homes Rattles Residents

Trash and beer cans-and you blame this on hunters??? Walk along any road in the county and you will see the same--except where people go out of their way to pick it up. So, who else besides hunters puts forth the money and effort to protect wild places?

Re: “Hearts Unknown

This is important work though I do not agree assisted suicide that medically hastens end of life after suffering from terminal disease is the same as suicide from mental health distress which is often an impulsive act. David Bowie died from cancer not suicide, and there is no evidence he was suicidal.

Re: “As School Starts in Portland, More Funding Is On Its Way

What this bill ensures is that more money will be funneled to a school system that failed repeatedly to make the case that more money results in better-educated public school graduates. For decades, taxpayers have been bullied into throwing money at a system that taxpayers KNOW through personal experience does an increasingly poorer job of educating their daughters and sons. Congratulations Oregon.

Re: “Here are the Entities Helping Buy The Bulletin

You reversed the two words "Include" and "not"... they should be turned around. So that it reads "does not include". :)
