I struggled this morning trying to decide what to post on this day, September 1, 2014 because today Utah got a bit uglier. The reason Utah got uglier is that today Crow
hunting killing season begins for the first time in the state so the day is already off on a bad start.
There might be people killing crows today but they aren’t hunters they are just killing for no reason. They won’t eat the crows even though they are legally supposed to. And ravens are going to die because some of those people don’t know the difference between crows, blackbirds and ravens.
The graphic above is what the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources believes is enough to educate crow killers about the differences between crows, blackbirds and ravens. I suppose the Utah DWR feels that they are legally covered with this material afterall it was in the guide even though it was buried on page 54 of their new 56 page guide to upland game bird hunting. Is it enough to educate those crow killers? Not in my opinion.
Yes, Utah got a bit uglier today. So instead I have shared a sunrise photo from another place and time.
