Now they are blaming the California wildfires on a hunters illegal campfire that got out of control. What do you think, are they serious, or looking for someone to blame that would be unpopular with a segment of their population?

I thought that very thing when I heard it on the news this morning.....

How long has this fire been burning again? What hunting seasons were open when the fire started? How would they trace it back to a hunters fire and not just a campers/hikers fire?

BTW, not to hijack your thread, but did you see the article this week saying they were still trying, and going to bring to their legislature, to make ANY type of hunting illegal in Cali.?

Wonder what season it was when the fire started?

More likely, a bunch of hippie hikers.

That was one reason I wonder what the truth is Griz. I do not trust California politicians at all. For that matter, I don't fully trust any politician, but theirs are more suspect than most.

Blaming a hunter could be used to push the hunting ban.... fluff it up a bit and say hunters cause the fires that burn our houses.... lets outlaw hunting and then the hunters won't be staring fires... With most of the minds out there, the people would believe every bit of that nonsense!!

Maybe they should ban the use of fire? Wait, there was already a burn ban on so how did that fire start?

The entire thing sounds sort of fishy. How in the heck can they blame a hunter for a campfire? It could have been anybody that let that fire get of control. Sounds like another attempt at vilifying hunters.
