USFWS Proposal Would Allow Defense Department To Take Migratory Birds

WASHINGTON, D.C.--The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) proposed a rule this week to allow the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) to incidentally take migratory birds during military readiness training as directed by the 2003 National Defense Authorization Act. The proposed rule was printed in the Federal Register on Wednesday.
The proposed regulations require the DOD to assess the adverse effects of military readiness activities on migratory birds in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act.
They also require the DOD to develop appropriate conservation measures if a proposed action might have a significant adverse effect on a population of migratory bird species of concern. In addition, the proposal requires the DOD to monitor the effects of such military readiness activities on migratory birds and the effectiveness of conservation measures.
The proposed rule and other related documents can be downloaded at Comments on the proposal can be mailed to the USFWS's Division of Migratory Bird Management at: 4401 North Fairfax Dr., Room 4107, Arlington, Virginia 22203. The deadline to submit comments is July 30, 2004.

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.
