Shown discussing the question are Comptroller Dick Myers (left) and retired emp/oyre C. L. "Burry" Sm/~. Why Do Some Hunters Use Utility Poles for Target Practice? Probably because they don't realize that shooting at equipment on a power pole can cause serious problems. If insulators or transformers are damaged, hundreds of people could be without electricity until repairs can be made. During the cold weather, being without electric power is more than an inconvenience, as people are unable to heat or light their homes or even prepare meals. Individuals who are dependent on electricity to operate a life-support system, such as a respirator or kidney dialysis machine, could have their very lives endangered by a power outage. Hunters and other sportsmen who use electrical equipment for target practice also run the risk of shooting down an energized power line, which could land on them. That same line could also fall to the ground and seriously or fatally injure another unsuspecting hunter or animal. Taking potshots at electrical equipmeot is costly as well, since damaged equipment must be repaired or replaced. These costs add to the price of electric service. Most hunters in our service area are very courteous and responsible when in the woods. But all sportsmen must remember .never to shoot at any electrical equipment. The wrong kind of target practice could have serious consequences.
