    The Island County Commissioners have scheduled a Public Hearing to
    decide whether or not to allow hunting in the Kettles Trail System
    on Whidbey Island. For those of you familiar with Kettles Park,you
    know its a great place to ride in the fall and winter due to its
    gravel base.

    The Commissioners think no one uses the trails in the fall and
    winter, so hunting there would not be a concern. WRONG!!!!!! These
    trails are heavily used by equestrians, cyclists and hikers during
    the fall and winter. I hope that you can take a few moments to
    email the Commissioners and let them know you ride those trails, see
    lots of other people using those trails, and don't think it would be
    a good place to have hunting. If you are also a responsible hunter,
    please let the Commissioners know that you have no desire to hunt
    where there are no deer and lots of people. You can email the
    Commissioners at the addresses below.
    Thanks and see ya on the trails!

    Commissioner Mike Shelton: Mikes@...
    Commissioner Mac McDowell: macm@...
    Commissioner Bill Byrd: bill_byrd@...

    if you wear an orange vest, you should be fine. its not like most honest hunters just start shooting at whatever moves, so if you just wear orange you should be fine. even just bright colors.
