Vermont Bill Aims To Increase Deer Population
« on: February 08, 2004, 03:21:39 PM »
MONTPELIER, VTA bill recently introduced in the Vermont Legislature aims to revive the state's deer populations by banning the shooting of antlerless deer and spike bucks. The bill would also shorten the state's fall bowhunting season from 23 to 16 days.

Vermont Republican Rep. Robert Helm is sponsoring House Bill 591 (HB 591), which would limit the bag limit for deer to one per year. Under current law, Vermont hunters can take up to three deer per year.

HB 591 would also appropriate $500,000 to reimburse landowners who grow crops for wildlife.

Helm says he introduced the legislation after fielding complaints from deer hunters who say the state's deer herd "is in very poor condition." A public hearing on the bill is scheduled for February 10 at the Vermont Statehouse.

In all seriousness, the Marlin is a great rifle, too. I own a Model 60, one of the best rifles ever made.
Brownings are nice, but in terms of quality AND accuarcy AND ruggedness, it's hard to beat the Marlin.
California sucks that's it.
