    There are a number of bills coming up in Oregon this legislative session and I thought I would post the Hunting and outdoor oriented ones here as I do not know how many of you frequent the Legal & Political section.

    It won't be able to do it all at one go and I'll try to keep ahead of the pols.

    First up is HB 2503
    "Vests sole authority to regulate hunting ammunition and fishing gear with Legislative Assembly
    with specified exceptions. Prohibits public bodies from regulating hunting ammunition, fishing gear
    and angling equipment unless authorized by statute."

    Giving sole authority to regulate (read that as ban) hunting ammo and fishing gear (lead bullets and fishing weights) to the Senate and Legislature who quite often have no experience in the matter sounds like a wholly bad idea.
