Ok we're having a discussion on Homerdave's thread about the board of game proposal. Here's a true scenario about how conveluted laws and ethics can get.
Is shooting from the road legal or ethical? One would think No to either, but in Washington state, there is an exception, and I don't know, maybe in Alaska too.
In Washington, if you are disabled, you can get a permit to shoot from your vehicle. Now let's take this a bit farther. The State has spent a lot of effort to condem this practice as unsafe, illegal and unethical. Then it makes an exception like this. Why? because it's the "feel good" thing to do. But why is it any more safe or ethical for an invalid to shoot from a vehicle than for a healthy hunter? There is no good answer to that question.
And let's go a little farther. Say the invalid hunter shoots and wounds an animal and it gets away, how is he going to be able to follow up if he's so incapacitated he has to shoot from his vehicle? It's legal, but is it moral? Who's responsible for that animal? The invalid hunter? or the state that let him go hunting in the first place?
