Re: the letter "Poachers are a big problem" (Eagle, Nov. 17). I recently moved to this beautiful area - I am a "newcomer."
Since moving here, I have been regaled with hunting stories, from the old-timers' stories about hunting game anytime anywhere to put food on the table to more horrendous ones of trophies being pulled through town or mounted on trucks as a sign of some great accomplishment.
I find it sad that a woman raising three children is concerned with preserving hunting as a great outdoor experience. It does not surprise me poaching happens. One of our most human traits is our ability to be inhumane.
My advice to a mother eager to preserve enduring memories of the great outdoors is to buy a camera. In this way, we can make a change. I agree, children first.
