I’m writing in response to Mrs. Sally Sturgeon’s letter to the editor in the prior edition of this paper (Wednesday March 7).
Sally Sturgeon purposefully casts doubt and aspersion on Mr. Sean McAfee’s character and professionalism surrounding an unfortunate incident that occurred here in the Yaak. There were no violations of the law in any way, shape, or form by Mr. Sean McAfee related to this incident. Additionally, Mrs. Sturgeon purposefully leaves out details of the incident that are not only important and critical in understanding the unfortunate accident, but also strangely suggests at the end of her letter that if you doubt her, you should contact Mr. McAfee for details. The truth and all facts surrounding the truth are the only thing that matters in situations like this. I encourage you to contact Mr. McAfee or myself, or local FWP game wardens for the honest, straightforward, non-judgemental account of the situation.
Sally Sturgeon certainly has a right to her opinion and a right to be anti-hunting, which one can assume is her point of view based on the tone, intent, and language of her letter. She does not have the right to slander one of the most conscientious, honest, law abiding, hard working, experienced, licensed and professional guides in the Rocky Mountain west. Right is right. Wrong is wrong.
