Butch Mazzuca is my husband, and I have never responded to a criticism of his commentary views because we both realize when an individual puts an opinion out for public consumption, criticism goes with the territory.
But Jim Gonzales' letter to the editor on Sunday is a clear example of someone reading what they wanted to read, i.e.: "Obviously Mazzuca has a disdain for hunters."
Mr. Gonzales, please dismount from your high horse and reread Butch's first paragraph. Butch's "Unnatural selection" commentary referred to trophy hunters of three endangered species in Africa - nothing more. And yes, we've eaten elk, too!
