HUNTERS HAVE OBLIGATION TO PRACTICE ETHICS
As the hunting season moves into full swing in November, hunters are reminded of their obligation to practice hunting ethics. Trespassing leads the list of illegal and unethical practices. Hunters must obtain permission from the landowner before entering his land to hunt. While hunting on public land, it is unlawful to shoot an animal on private property without permission. Illinois law does not grant the right of trespass for the purpose of retrieving wounded or crippled wildlife. It is also illegal to dispose of animal carcasses in creeks, along roadsides, and on public lands. Remember, your conduct while hunting may influence the landowners’ decision to let you or other sportsmen hunt in the future. Be legal and ethical at all times. For more information, call 594-2484.
FAYETTE COUNTY WILL NOT JOIN MULBERRY GROVE FIRE DISTRICT
On the ballot Tuesday in Fayette County, citizens voted against joining the Mulberry Grove Fire Protection District. The expansion proposal was the result of requests by rural persons whose insurance rates were increasing because they do not legally have fire protection. The measure was defeated 214 to 181 votes.
