Writer doesn’t hunt, but wishes participants good luck in ‘Squirrel Slam’

I don’t have any desire to kill Bambie and I think that squirrels are just too cute to shoot. So, you know what? I don’t hunt.

Now not everybody shares my high ethical standards and they want to go out and massacre the little darlings. Well, that’s their choice and as long as they use the meat, I can’t think of any reason to stop them.

The argument that the hunters are harming the squirrel population is ridiculous. If that were true there would not be enough squirrels left in the greater Holley area to continue having the Squirrel Slam year after year.

Good luck hunters and may the best woman or man win and remember, if it’s more than 4 feet tall it’s probably not a squirrel so please don’t shoot it.
