Don't know. Just asking. Aren't Native Americans somewhat exempt from hunting/fishing regulations and restrictions???
Isnt it illegal? At least for non-tribal members?
“They missed the Eagles and by accident hit Vikings. Damn Redskins.”
That might have also been hunting Ravens.
Well as long as they are actually Indians I dont care. Now if it were like fauxcahontas Indian then throw them in jail. The natives have their own laws by treaty.
But, I wonder if it was a Federation licensed Mark IV Phaser pistol that the officer simply mistook for a high powered spotlight.
A Car? Rifle? Spotlight? Fine them Injins for cultural appropriation.
PIF: You are quite correct, or at least that’s the law in our state. A deer on the rez has a very short life expectancy. And, I’ve learned from both US & Canadian people that Indians can cross the border at will to hunt whatever they want.
Considering Eagles are a part of Indian religious ritual, it’s difficult to say what the kid’s intent happened to be. If I knew some Indian kids were doing this in my neck of the woods (litterally), I just would not worry over it.
thats the law in our state.
Federal law. All states.
“Alaska paid over $100,000 in bounties for 115,000 bald eagles between 1917 and 1942.”
This probably continued after 1942. I met an old WW2 vet a few years ago who commercial fished out of Sitka after the war. He told me that when the fishing was slow he’d shoot a sea lion and drag it ashore to attract eagles. He’d shoot the eagles and cut off their legs which were required to collect the bounty. I asked him what he thought people would say about those practices now. He just laughed.
You mean "shining" deer? Yes it is.....My dad's uncle lived in northern Michigan out in the boondocks during the 50's and early 60's. He was an alcoholic and also notorious for starting fights in the town's only bar.
I don't know what uncle Al did for a living up in that area, if anything. But the deer he shot illegally went to feeding himself even if they were out of season too........
He was found dead of a heart attack, lying in a snow bank by his mail box with a liquor bottle in his hand........
What a family story!
I lived in northern Michigan with my mom and my dad was a cop in Detroit (they were divorced). During the 50's dad would drive up to where I lived to pick me up and take me back to Detroit to spend the summer with he and my grandparents. While on the drive back, he would always stop to see Uncle Al who would be sober for us and show me wondrous things that he would save for me.
Most notable that I can only remember were a birds nest with eggs he had found and saved in an outside refrigerator for me then another time a giant snapping turtle he had caught and put in the bottom of a 50 gallon barrel before he butchered it for food.......I wish I could remember more.
At some point we as a country are going to have a serious discussion regarding the indians and treaties. If they want to live in the 17th century without modern anything, ie woven clothing, electricity, plumbing, sawn timber housing,no iron,no plastics, no firearms, medical or medication then fine, otherwise quit having it both ways. Isn’t this the very thing we say re: everyone else? These people are not true to the period or culture. We should quit giving them a pass in both worlds, let them choose one.
