Lota land owners wont open up to hunting for fear of lawsuits ect. Simple to solve Mo has a recent law on the books petaining to horse riding and rodeo. Being that both can be fatal or maiming. The law ses the owners of the animals and the ground being used for horse riding or rodeo events in case that if any thing should happen owners are not held liable for any reason. A hunting law should be indroduced under the same banner that leaves land owners blamless for any hunting or hunting related injurys or dammage to hunters property like guns, stands, and Autos. Sad to say idiots that take advantage of the right to sue has made it tougher and tougher for pvt landowners to allow hunting. Its not so much a issue in Mo but in other states I understand its dif. I encourage hunters to contact their state district Senators and Rep. Ask them to help put together and submit legislation like that to encourage hunting and pvt land owner participation in allowing acess to land. More land owners might allow hunting if they know they cant be sued cause Jon Dunderhead fell out his tree stand and broke his leg.
