Ever spend time in your backyard wondering just what would make your 4th of July cookout or Memorial Day hoedown even better? Well, there is a way: Have a hunter move in next door! A judge in Easton yesterday ordered a couple to stop shooting in the backyard of their Lower Saucon Township home. The preliminary injunction prevents the two die-hard hunters from firing at targets or pigeons or whatever. And why did the neighbors seek an injunction against the backyard hunters?

'How would you like to have a picnic at your home and have this guy shooting 18 feet away?'

But things aren't all odd quotes designed to elicit a 'I wouldn't like it' response. Township police filed 19 gun charges against the hunter, Richard Seruga, but 17 of them were thrown out since he didn't violate any local gun laws. The township responded by banning shooting within 450 feet of any residence. Sergua is, naturally, claiming conspiracy and has filed a lawsuit. Ain't this country grand?

Should people be allowed to hunt anything that comes onto their property?

No, there are special areas that people can use if they want to go hunting.

If they had a large acreage with wildlife hunting would be fine but not in this case.

I see absolutely no way to justify such an allowance. What if it's someone's pet? Endangered species? Human?

14 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Sunday 7/29/07 - 2:44:57 PM EST (GMT-5)
NO! That's obscene!
14 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Sunday 7/29/07 - 2:47:37 PM EST (GMT-5)
i think they should, it would be faster if ur hunting deer or sumthing because then u dont have to drive an hour to the hunting area n then drive an hour back, it sucks when u dont get anything
14 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Sunday 7/29/07 - 3:17:57 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes of course. It's your land, something else entered it. Shoot to kill!

It's what I did to the mailman.

Asswipes like this are what give gun owners and hunters a bad name.
Kind of hard to post a pro-hunting stance with dickheads like this in the news.
It's too bad we have to legislate common sense.
14 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Saturday 9/15/07 - 4:40:09 PM EST (GMT-5)
Shouldn't we allow any kind of weapon to be used, while we're at it?
As long as it's on your own property, of course.
I'd love to hunt deer with hand grenades from my porch.

Isn't there a law that says you're only allowed to shoot if you're at least 100 yards (or feet, I can't remember) from a house or the road?

Conspiracy?! That idiot needs to get a clue.
