Why do so many not want to hunt seals? Are you afraid to get out on the ice (it's dangerous) or because they look so cute and cuddily?
Propaganda works is why so many don't want to. They are/have been devastating to salmon runs in some NW rivers and the fish and game depts. hands are tied. They will try throwing cherry bomb type of explosives to scare the seals away. What a joke, me and my '06 and a few more guys could help tremendously in a short while. Meanwhile Salmon runs in the NW are dwindling and the seal population isn't and from what was written here is or already has become a real problem.
Reminds me of the wolf situation going on as I write this.
