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

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
