Hunting a 'necessary evil'

I do not like guns, never have, never will. I would vote for any amendment limiting guns. When I was attending Sonoma State University, I had to call the Department of Fish & Game about a topic on which I was writing. In the course of the conversation, I asked about hunting. The man told me it was absolutely necessary to keep the populations of deer, moose, ducks and other animals from multiplying like wildfire. Like it or not -- and I don't -- hunting is a necessary evil.



The Bee received several letters on this topic.

James Calvillo: Dalai Lama, who cares?

Melissa Baughman: Passing on tradition

Shane Hawkins: Game is quality food
