The New & Improved SB 55.

February 24, 2011

The pot-lickers have gone and improved on SB 55.  It now provides:

That § 32-20A-12 be amended to read as follows:
    32-20A-12. No person may chase, drive, harass, kill, or attempt to kill any game animal or game bird with or from a snowmobile, except that coyotes may be pursued by snowmobiles and taken by a landowner or lessee on the landowner’s property by shooting from stationary snowmobiles through the use of firearms if the operator of the snowmobile is at least eighteen years of age. Not more than one person may be aboard the snowmobile while coyotes are being hunted or taken pursuant to this section. A violation of this section is a Class 2 misdemeanor.

I guess some of the saner fixes took too much of the thrill out of the hunt, so they added the “pursuit” language.  What with snow-machines that can do 100 mph, the “hunter” won’t have to stop to uncase his shotgun except to use it to pry the coyote out of the tread.

The House gets to vote on it on Friday.  Depression gives way to despair.

    Too bad. Depression is a treatable condition. I don’t think despair is.
