wow it is sad to see things like this happen and sad to see such low fines for such an act the boys cuttin the foot off the bird just gose to show how much ppl just dont care anymore about our natral resorses
Those kids may have been some good kids that made a mistake. I can understand the leaniency in the fines but they should have had some public service or wildlife service penalties in addition to the fines and reprimands.
One of the most important pieces of equipment that you will take hunting is a good quality pair of optics and they take some care to give you the performance that you want. So here are a few tips.
Use some alcohol and cheese cloth to clean the lenses. I will usually pick up an extra cleaning kit from my optician when I have my eyes examined.
Don't touch the lens with your fingers. If there is a stick or a bug on them blow it off.
Use the lens covers. They are there...
