Legislators in West Virginia are considering a bill that would authorize the training of public school students to hunt. The measure, which has already passed the state senate, comes as revenues from from hunting licenses have fallen off by nearly $2 million, a decline attributed to things like video games.
"There are no down sides to it. If you don't want to take it, you don't have to take it. But teaching anybody safety is a good thing," Mr. Jezioro said. "When I grew up, you didn't have video games. We have an obligation to see that these kids have exposure to the outdoor world and if they like it."
