Now is the time to ring out the old and bring in the new. The old that is driving me crazy is people new to the area trying to change the way of life here.

Let me say I don’t hunt, I don’t eat dear meat, and I am afraid of dogs because I was attacked by someone’s German shepherd as a child. It was a family pet that would not hurt a fly. He didn’t get a fly; he got me.

My husband hunts, eats deer meat and has dogs. That is a way of life here. People depend on that meat to feed their family. What gives me the right to complain and try to take away their way of life?

No one has that right, and if you can’t live with it, move.

A dog ran through your yard? Big deal. Are the hunters running through your yard? If they were, then you have a case to run around crying about.

And if this is causing you to have health problems you really do need to move. I know if it was me, my health comes first.

Did you know snakes, possums, bear and many more critters are living on your land? Are they next?

I think maybe someone needs to get a hobby or find some friends. The moral of my letter is: life is to short not to be happy, so move.

And if you need help moving I am sure lots of hunters will be more than happy to help you.
