Hunters plea to Pearl River WMA for more hog hunting oppurtunities.

94 Signatures Goal: 1,000

Dear Louisiana Lawmakers and Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries:

We the hunters, environmentalist and concerned citizens of Louisiana have came together to voice our concerns; in regards to Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries killing feral hogs from a helicopter. We feel as thou the natural esthetic quality of life, along the Lower Pearls, are being affected by the use of helicopters to kill the feral hogs. Under the Louisiana Constitution Article IX, Section one it states: "The natural resources of the state, including air and water, and the healthful, scenic, historic, and esthetic quality of the environment shall be protected, conserved, and replenished insofar as possible and consistent with the health, safety, and welfare of the people. The legislature shall enact laws to implement this policy". With that being said we pray you will consider allowing hog hunters more days to hog hunt, with or without dogs in Pearl River Wildlife Management Area. This would be a more ethical way of dealing with the feral hog problem and also help preserve our esthetic quality of life. We also feel that the funding that is being used for the helicopter hunts should go to "setting a bounty on hogs."

Thanks

    Stop wasting our money and let hunters hunt 24/7 with dogs until the problem is solved.

    The LA Dept of W&F are pretty good at wasting money. This is just another fine example.
