    I suspect Mr Yancey is introducing this due to pressure from a SMALL group of contituents based on a couple of fatal hunting accidents last year in the state. I dont remember the particulars of either other than one case was in Montgomery county where a teenager was shot down in his yard by a hunter down the road who was shooting from his vehicle parked on the roadside. In that case, the hunter was already breaking an old rule...which does happen when a law is on the books. No need for a new law. He simply needs to make an announcment reminding hunters of the laws already on the books....not trying to promote more laws that would not have changed the outcome due to the law breaker one way or the other.

    I suspect Mr. Powell has never met a hunter from Lincoln County. The more rules and regulations that can be put in place to enforce drunk crazy people to stay at home with their guns, the better. And, yes, Mr. Powell, a hunt has disrupted church services more than once. When the deacons hear a dog, they stop hearing the pastor. In fact, my husband and I visited a church in Summit where all the pastor could do was talk about the deer season that year. Sounds like Mr. Yancey is as sick of these 'sportsmen' as the rest of us. I have had shots fired from the road toward my house (less than 200 yards) and even the game warden doesn't do anything and everyone knows it. I agree and would heartly vote for the permission idea because my neighbors aren't as considerate as Mr. Powell acts like he is. I only have 23 acres and am plagued by irresponsible hunters who don't own land of their own and after fifty years, I have never been asked for permission. Pass more laws!!

    One should suspect Mr. Yancey's motives. He was a "lobbyist" for the MS Baptists, well until the caught him surfing porn on MS Baptist Convention computers (he was one of 2 caught but was the 1 of 2 that wasn't punished), but the point is that he is beholden to the business of the Baptist church.
