    They still shoot them as they sit on powerlines on county roads up here.

    How do I know? I had to witness it firsthand…after they were shot unfortunately.

    They still shoot them in “the protected area” in Idaho — The Snake River Birds of Prey area.

    That’s where the story took place about the local shooters who were so enthusiastic that they took shots at the National Guard training nearby.
