While animal rights groups were down the hall supporting a bill to ban “puppy mills,” the audience at the Inland Fisheries and Wildlife Committee was dominated by bear and bow hunters. But before I get to that, let me tell you this.
If you want some insight into the legislative process, tune in to Representative Bob Duchesne’s radio show, Wild Maine, that airs on 92.9 FM on Saturday at 9 am and Sunday at 8 am. The show can also be accessed online at 929theticket.com. Bob taped a public hearing hosted by the Inland Fisheries and Wildlife Committee on issues including moose ticks, hunting with slingshots, and wearing hunter pink. The show includes testimony I gave on the tick issue.
