I found a blog post via Twitter from the US Sportsman’s Alliance and US Sportsman’s Alliance Foundation about the possibility of getting fired for hunting in other States and the legality of the whole ridiculous situation.
The gist of the story is this: The Commish in California went to Idaho and shot a legal Mountain Lion. In California, that’s illegal. When he got back, activism groups called for his resignation. As a result, there is all sorts of legislation being proposed that would prevent this kind of potential prosecution from happening.
I know many of you out there hunt in different State. Do you hunt any wildlife in these States that is illegal to hunt in your home State?
AND – let’s go back to the first time in the blog “The answer is yes, of course. Especially if you were supposed to be at work, your work was not completed prior to your hunting trip, or if you lacked time off to actually miss work.” How do you handle hunting and your job?
When I took the job I have now, I made it clear in my interviews that I will have every Friday off in November so that I can go hunting. I did the same thing with my last job. It also works well since I don’t like the heat (no summer vacation for me!) and don’t have kids that I need to account for. For those of you who do – how do you manage this?
