Hunter or shooter?

DNR Secretary Cathy Stepp bagged her first deer and for all the wrong reasons.

I don’t need Ms. Stepp to shoot a deer to prove she knows what she’s doing as DNR Secretary.  I don’t need her to eat deer jerky and summer sausage. What I need is a DNR Secretary who is a sportsman/woman and who understands the bagging of game is secondary to the hunting and outdoor experience. That to be “out there” is why ethical hunters hunt. It’s not about shooting a deer, a grouse, or a pheasant. It’s a bonus if you bag game. Being “out there” is the reward. I doubt Ms. Stepp was able to learn that in the two hours she hunted. The fact she couldn’t look the animal in the eye tells me more than I need to know.
