Letter: Bowhunting on trail too dangerous

Kings Park Bluff

Kings Park Bluff

I heard rumors about allowing bowhunting on the state Department of Environmental Conservation property in Kings Park, but I thought they were too absurd to be true ["Bowhunters near homes, trail, school," News, Oct. 10].

I know those woods; I've been walking and hiking them with my wife and dog for 10 years. Besides the handicap-accessible trail, there are marked hiking trails. The neighborhood kids ride mountain bikes there. Also, for a wilderness area, it's not very big and is adjacent to residential neighborhoods.

Allowing bowhunting here is the stupidest decision I've ever heard. An arrow that can fell a deer can certainly kill a human, and if bowhunting is allowed to continue on that property, sooner or later it will.
