This is an opinion piece from a life-long Mainer. I've hunted and fished in this state since I was a little boy.
I'll be honest. I don't bear hunt. Never have and probably never will. It just doesn't interest me. But I do have some skin in the game and, if you're a true, tax paying, Mainer, so do you. A yes vote on question 1 this November will stop the use of bait, dogs and traps in hunting bear.
Kendall Jones' Facebook page has well over 422, 000 likes and it's NOT because she's a Texas Tech Cheerleader! Reaction is quite mixed as to what she's using the page for, promoting her African hunts as she poses with dead amimals. Emotions are running so high, in fact, that there's a Change.org move afoot asking Facebook to remove her page. Yet, she isn't doing anything illegal!
If you're a Mainer, chances are you love the outdoors and hunting or fishing or trapping or all of the above! This weekend is the time for you to visit the Augusta Civic Center and satisfy your appetite for all things "outdoors." This year, there's something new, too. Something that, I think, is PERFECT for the times we're living in....
