We know most people are completely against duck shooting, but the shooters lobby is out in force again today weighing in on today's Herald Sun poll, "Should duck shooting be banned?" Read about the courageous protester who was shot by a duck hunter today, and PLEASE VOTE YES -

What gets me really riled up about this is that Julia is an incredibly intelligent and a compassionate woman but news stories don't highlight any of that. Obviously she knew that this could happen - we all do - but it doesn't mention that the inexperienced teenager was shooting at a low flying bird. Surely common sense would have told him that if there is someone, who was clearly visibly in her hi vis gear, in the way not to pull the trigger. But he did anyway, so why is that?
This kid and possibly his father should be punished for allowing harm to come to another because of lack of judgement, experience and possibly reputation.

My other concern is that now he has shot at a person and probably won't face any consequences due to age and situation, how will he go on to value all life? After all she's only a 'bloody greenie'.  furious

Duck shooters are disgusting.

This is so sick:

"Guns are very safe to use under the right supervision and training, maybe the training provided in this case was not adequate, but duck shooting is one of our rights of passage as a boy being able to turn into a man it teaches so many great traits and this has been passed down the generations! They are a great meal too! ...."

You have to kill ducks to become a man?!

Proves how smart some people actually are, thinking that killing helpless creatures turn you into a man! And why should they even ask that question, "Should we ban duck shooting?" thats like asking "Should we ban the hunting of family pets?" Seriously. Many adults (not you guys) go on that they are more mature and responsible than teens, but then they have to take a poll to figure out if they should ban duck shooting?! What is this world coming to?

Funny how only protesters get shot not hunters would that be because protesters go into unsafe areas. Even the DPI spokesman said she shouldnt have been where she was.
