Letter: Getting outdoors laudable but…

The photo showed a young girl holding up the head of a deer, whose antlers were covered with “velvet.”

To the editor:

I read the article regarding the inclusion of younger people getting involved in hunting and fishing, in the Kelowna area.  (Kids Bring Their Parents Outdoors, July 17 Lake Country Calendar.)

The idea is laudable and would assist in creating greater awareness of our youth with the relationship, between, our expanding intrusion into habitat, formerly only used by wild animals.

Our relationship with nature has been strained, and this is a giant step in educating the new generation in how to better manage wildlife.

The photo showed a young girl holding up the head of a deer, whose antlers were covered with “velvet.”

Is this a new species, or has the window of the hunting seasons been expanded?
