Anyone ever wonder why you are not permitted to shoot a sow with a cub, but you can shoot a cow with a calf...

The inland Fish and Wildlife crowd have a serious public relations problem/attitude. In that job, if you don't have the public working with you, you are not working. In enforcement and protection, you are only as good as the help you get. No public relations, no help. end of story.
Conservation is a dirty word with this bunch we have in Govt.
On the moose hunting, I have area 100. Been out 5 times so far and have not seen as much as a print. Did see where some moose were taken BEFORE the season opened. On Boyd's comment, my area also takes in 3km of area 31. No sign in there either. Several factors at work here. The NALCOR operations have seriously interrupted the habitat and habits of moose. Another factor, and probably more serious, is amount of pouching. Last week I learned of 2 'sportsman' from one small community, were after shooting 9 moose so far, and probably more by now. Another from Trinity Bay is rumored to have shot 23 last season, taking orders from people who prefer to sit and watch TV, rather than enjoy the challenges that nature offers. I am sure, you who are reading this, are well aware of what I talking about. The provincial government couldn't give a rat's ass about the preservation of wildlife, despite the fact that the hunting sport is a self-sustaining activity, and does not cost the government a red cent. On the contrary, we feed other other government projects, when the funds should go towards more enforcement related activity. The government only PRETENDS to care about the environment, and tries to massage the minds of the people into thinking they are on top of it all. BS. Shall I continue. Not enough wild life officers, and of those that are, only a small percentage are dedicated to the job..
My buddy and I are having a hard time getting an animal in area 31 for the first time ever. Very few moose left here. I have covered a lot of country. Sad. Wildlife told me that only one moose has been taken on farm. They said it is a different year for sure. I have had my unpleasant experiences with area 36. A great area for moose but far to many covetous hunters. I'll never apply in that area again.
tough decision..I don't think i would shoot...
I have always wondered about that, I would not take a cow that I know has a calf, but would take the calf late in the season if that was all was available. You would probably be doing the calf a favor if it was alone and the cow dead.
We will not shoot a cow if she has a calf. But we will take the calf if we have the licence for it. I don't think that it's right to do so. I have seen a lot of calf's bauling out to the cow and the cow is dead. If there is enough coyote's in the area that calf is as good as gone.
But in saying that I would guess to say that the sow will get meat for the cub and a calf can eat on it's own.?????????????
