    I think having "canine" teeth kind of is a give-away. I like my steak pretty darn pink, thank you very much! Yup, I'd say humankind is pretty darn predatory. But I think it's been quite a few years since anyone would describe what most human hunting has evolved to as "natural".

    That aside, and I know this is really a radical suggestion here, but I thought the original discussion was about not being able to ride in the woods and forest during hunting season for fear of getting shot. Haven't we gotten way, way off topic? Doesn't anyone think that it's possible - just theoretically talking here, let's not all get upset because I might be trying to change any minds - but doesn't anyone think that it's possible that it *should* be OK to ride in the woods and forests even during hunting season? Am I really the only RideCamper who thinks that people with guns should be *gasp* more careful than perhaps some of them are? And that maybe refraining from riding in the woods or forest, which of course is prudent the way things are these days in order to continue being able to send emails to RideCamp, might not ultimately be the *only* solution, that maybe the people who are - dare I say it - actually causing the problem (the ones who sometimes pull the triggers and shoot riders and horses) might be somehow the ones to look at change their actions rather than the victims?
