Can any of you Ohio guys comment??? PETA Attempt to mess up hunters -- backfires PETA Fails in Attempt to Thwart Hunters Assoc. Press (Columbus, OH) "If you are familiar with PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals), then you are aware of the fact they will almost anything to protect animals. This year's efforts to save Ohio's deer from the annual statewide gun season has backfired. "For safety's sake, hunters in Ohio are required by law to display at least 400 square inches of hunter's blaze orange on their person when in the woods. Capitalizing on the fact tha hunters do not usually shoot orange, PETA recently bulk purchased blaze orange vests and have been affixing them to live-trapped deer in Youngstown suburbs. According to PETA spokesperson Katie Reese, a total of 405 vests were successfully put into circulation prior to this week, with additional specimens still being caught and vested. "Youngstown entrepreneur Guy Lockey, of Guy's Outdoors has spit in the face of PETA by offering rewards for the returned vests this week. Hunters who can successfully bag a vested deer can pay $5 for random and biggest animal awards. As of Tuesday, 308 of the vests had already been recorded as bagged with most of the hunters registering for Mr. Lockey's drawing. "It's so easy, you can see them coming a mile away" said one first year hunter after checking in his first spike buck. ODNR officials are worried that the poorly thought out plan by PETA might get somebody shot instead of saving the deer. "Hunters have turned their plan upside down, we're just hoping that nobody gets hurt and are hoping that none of the vested animals get tangled in brush" said an unnamed ODNR official. "PETA has really outdone itself this time." Ohio's statewide gun season is open to shotguns only and is scheduled to close on Saturday. 1965 US troops deployed in Vietnam - anti-war protests start at the university of Michigen. Soviet astronaut Alexei Leonov makes the first space walk. Ray Dolby invents the Dolby sound recording system. Stephanie Kwolek discovers kevlar.

1965? Was I supposed to add six days or subtract six days from the planned date to check the underside of the trashcan?z

Maybe it didn't happen, but I had to get a bottle of Windex and a rag to clean all the sprayed Pepsi off my screen! Hope the keyboard doesn't crap out from its fair share, too! An excellent story. The dumbasses at Peta just MIGHT try something like that. I heard that some states are trying to outlaw the use of night vision equipment by hunters. Seems some of them are allegedly hunting at night and getting 'jacklight' type results without actually needing any lights at all. I'm not sure I believe that. CJ

Don't most states have legal shooting hours? 1968 Dr Martin Luther King assassinated. Scientist devise the epidural anaesthetic to ease pain of childbirth. Boeing 747 introduced. Roy Jacuzzi invent the whirlpool bath. Kodak launches the Instamatic. Bill Gates and Paul Allen use their first computer, an ASR-33 Teletype.

I'm pretty sure they do. Buy you know anti-gun politicians...they'll ban ANYTHING even if it's not used like they assert it is! Way up north in Alaska, though, you may run into situations where it's within legal hunting hours and be fully dark, or have lots of light left and be out of those hours, either way. It'd be even more interesting above the Arctic Circle. Hunting allowed in daylight hours...three continuous months! CJ

Gun season in Ohio was only the week after Thanksgiving. I should know, I got soaking wet sitting in the rain, looking for a deer this year! Primitive weapons and bow season are longer, but gun season is only for 6 days!
