Some folks in my Outdoor network are buzzing today over the Opinion Column written by Chattanooga Times Free Press columnist David Cook, implying that some recent TWRA enforcement efforts may have been racially-discriminatory.

As you can read in the "Comments" below the column, I take issue with what he had to say. I hope my TNDeer friends will weigh-in with their opinions as well: http://www.timesfreepress.com/news/2013/jul/23/cook-column-fishing-while-brown/

FYI, it can be a hassle to register/login/comment on Times Free Press site. Agree or disagree with me, please take the time to do it... or else we're just talking to ourselves.

I will say it (not sure about brown) but the Asian population is destroying fisheries here in middle Tennessee and do not care.

They got what they deserved.... Had ANY of us on here had no license or required ID... we would have been given the same treatment..... You have to pay to play!!!



This statement irked me.... as evidently the author doesn't seem to take it as seriously hense the article I guess:

"Not raiding or robbing. Not pillaging. Not plundering."

But in fact that is exactly what those guys were doing by not buying the proper license to help pay for the upkeep of the resources that the rest of us sportsmen have to pay for in order to enjoy.

Funny... I went into a Asian market here in West Knoxville on Saturday... I was surprised to find live Striper in a tank and others in the fish counter on ice for sale... they also had fresh large mouth bass for sale on ice and a whole lot of carp.... made me think, wonder what lake they are getting those from.

Wow. What a blatant attempt at race-baiting.

Very sad...

It looks like the "Illegals" are continuing their illegal behavior.

TWRA was doing their job. Plain, simple.
