    I had to laugh because I knew someone would add that little bit of wonderful judicial thought process in that story. Dang seismoligists (sp?) can't even predict a little earthquake (watch the birds, cats and dogs, maybe they'll tell you something is soon to be a kilter.)

    Makes me wonder if someone isn't working on getting their imaginary hog tooth.

    I know people who go hunting in Italy and they say the locals shoot anything that moves and don't pay attention to where their shot goes. The trespass laws are meager to non-existant which means people shooting near buildings.

    When my sister lived in Spain she had the same problem. Every October the hunters would turn up and she'd hear the patter of buckshot on the roof a dozen times a day. They were shooting in an orange grove 20 feet from her house and shot anything in sight. Songbirds, local cats, whatever.

    I've hunted wild boar in Tuscany more than once and have to tell you, it's one of the craziest things for an American hunter to experience. My favorite is still the gun racks in the bars so that during your breakfast drink you have a place to place your rifle. The tonier places acutally have a gun-check bellisima like we'd have a coat-check girl, which is a good thing as by 8am you're too drunk to identify your own gun. HH

    :wow:

    ...well, differing strokes for differing folks and I sure am glad that the US hunters I know, typically practice a more sober form of "pre-hunt" activity. I have seen less than sober hunters, but again, typically it's post hunt, around the campfire libations, pre hit the sack. Always fun to watch those guys the next morning. Sorta.
