Update: Legislators inflict hunter discrimination on CA official

HUNTING -- The flap continues in California over the Fish and Game Commission president who came to Idaho for a legally guided cougar hunt.

His home-state anti-hunting creeps are wailing for him to resign since cougars can't be hunted in California. Forty state legislators sent him a letter saying he should quit.

Do they send letters to residents who go to other states and enjoy things that are prohibited in California?  Can California officials go to Nevada and enjoy a casino?  Can they go to Montana and drive a rental car that doesn't have California pollution equipment?

Can they come to Eastern Washington and enjoy driving a highway without a traffic jam?

Read the latest on this state-endorsed hunter discrimination here.
