    You call that hunting?
    Editor:
    So shooting an animal from one’s deck is called “hunting”?
    Hunting formerly involved tracking, using skills to outwit the animal, stamina, woodsmanship, and dispatching the quarry with a well-placed shot, all for food for the family.

    Horse poop is also a problem
    Editor:

    Hank lost his way on short-term rentals
    Editor:
    Hold on there, Hank. I love your column, your research is great, but have you lost your way on this subject? That was then; this is now. The majority of the houses were built as summer vacation homes. Our population mushroomed in the summer. It was a vacation, seasonal community. Short-term rentals were appropriate. Live and let live!
