Hi friends, just finished looking through several pictures thats entered in the contest page,I don't understand some peoples thoughts of a good picture.What is so breath taking about 4 or 5 dozen trout guted and heads cut off, or a picture of a fish no bigger than the lure it was killed with,man lets have some respect and realize that theres little kids thats comming behind us wanting and dreaming of catching a BIG trout.Let me continue here, any picture with a dead animal and blood running out of it nose,or side, mouth? Stop and again have some respect, make your pictures clean,don't rejoice over a dead bloody animal,yes remember it as a great hunt,but not make it look like something that has been draged down the road for a mile.
Or 8 or 10 trout,all but one are 6 inchs long and the other is like 3 - 4 pounds. Have it ever come in our minds that if everyone was releasing the little ones,thats what would happen to them as well?Or do we use the excuse the little ones are the best eating ones?
I can go on and on,guys lets stop and think about the excitement that we got in taking these great creatures, fish,birds its all alike.And give it the respect that it deserves. If i can change one person attitude I'll be happy.
Enjoy and respect the great outdoors
