a fresh, sharp look at news, life and politics in Charlestown, Rhode Island
This video portrays hunters as stupid as the video and those to whom support video visceral trash.
Rhode Island does not allow deer hunting with a rifle. Only bow, black powder and shotgun hunting is permitted under strict laws. Check out the Federal Aid in Wildlife Restoration Act (http://www.fws.gov/laws/lawsdigest/FAWILD.HTML) that was passed in the U.S. in 1937. This law was an important advancement in the field of wildlife management. It placed a 11% tax on sales of guns and ammunition. The funds generated were then distributed to the states for use in wildlife management activities and research. This law is still in effect today. There are two general types of wildlife management shown below. The first is being applied to Ninigret.1) Manipulative management acts on a population, either changing its numbers by direct means or influencing numbers by the indirect means of altering food supply, habitat, density of predators, or prevalence of disease. This is appropriate when a population is to be harvested, or when it slides to an unacceptably low density or increases to an unacceptably high level. 2) Custodial management is preventive or protective. The aim is to minimize external influences on the population and its habitat. It is appropriate in a national park where one of the stated goals is to protect ecological processes. It is also appropriate for conservation of a threatened species where the threat is of external origin rather than being intrinsic to the system.
