Hello, I am a resident north of Flagstaff in a very rural area. I am writing to say that I too oppose "wildlife killing contests," barbaric events that promote killing as many predators as possible for cash, guns and prizes.
I used to hunt for meat, don't anymore, but still have my guns. I respect ethical hunters who kill humanely and eat what they kill. But these ghastly events have nothing to do with hunting, it is just promoting killing for killings' sake and much cruelty seems to be involved.
I love seeing my wildlife alive in their natural state, and I feel very strongly that AZGFD should outlaw these contests. They are taking public comments until 5/12/19. Send your comments to "email@example.com". Thank you.
