Hunter’s Free Speech

In the late fall of 1990, a woman named Claire Casey tried to stop a pair of hunters from shooting tame partridges on public land owned by the state Bureau of Land Management in Idaho. She waved her arms around to scare the partridges off, and lectrued the hunters on the errors of their ways. Casey didn’t just make the hunters mad—she sent them scurrying for their lawyers. Casey was convicted of “hunter harrassment” and fines $150.
