I contacted all 4 (Yes, believe it or not there are 4) candidates for governor in hopes that they would answer a few questions regarding wildlife regulation in Texas and of the 4, only one cared to respond. Maybe the others were too busy to bother with us (bowhunters) or maybe the state's wildlife isn't important to them. Who knows why they didn't feel a need to respond. Regardless, I am going to post here the responses I received from Kathie Glass:

Regarding the possibility of changes to the people at the regulatory level for wildlife:

Quote:
The state has been overrun by cronyism. One of the biggest problems in TX is the fact that elected officials from both parties disregard the interests of the people in favor of well-connected special interests. Any people in appointed positions who are guilty of such behavior would definitely be replaced.


Regarding citizen dissatisfaction with changes to wildlife laws/regulations:

Quote:
We need a mechanism to address those citizens’ concerns. As things are now, Texans do not have any recourse for bad decisions at the regulatory level short of filing lawsuits. That needs to change.


Regarding restrictions for the taking of fish and game:

Quote:
If they cannot through sound scientific data justify a reason for the restrictions (like bowfishing) then those means should probably be allowed. Larger sportsmans goups who look to restrict the rights of those sportsmen who are in the minority should not be allowed to force their agenda on the state without a sound reason for doing so.


Regarding the law barring the killing of stray cats or dogs even when trespassing and destroying property:

Quote:
I am very much opposed to the law as you described it. Property rights and individual humans rights trump any animal "rights."

I didn't know there was a law against killing stray dogs and cats. Pretty silly when you can kill humans who tresspass.

Uh, you might want to rethink that. In the house, no problem. Climbing a fence and walking across the pasture, big problem. Or maybe you were just posting that for effect.

Not if you think you can kill someone for trespassing.

You said people who trespass. Those guys were committing burglary. Apples and oranges.

They weren't stealing from joe horn. They were just walking on his land. I know what the penal code says.

If you are in fear of your life when someone trespasses, it's perfectly legal to use deadly force. Look it up if you don't believe me.

Only thing more obnoxious than an attorney (resident attorney hunters excepted) is an attorney wannabe.

OP - I googled Kathie Glass. Seems like a nice lady. But the picture lower right - cowboy hat, pump jack in the background, crazy eyes - come on.
