We had a discussion recently about the Lipscomb turkeys and about the hunters warning that occurred in the 70's. I finally located the newspaper article that appeared in the Lipscomb Limelight, December 1, 1977. It has a photo of the hunter hanging from a tree with the warning "Hunter who met with misfortune hunting in Lipscomb" The article continued "the irate citizens stress it is illegal to hunt within the city limits; understandably are concerned that many continue to disregard the rules and endanger the lives of the wildlife, as well as the residents of its community."
Though we don't have the hunter in place any more the residents continue the tradition of Lipscomb being a sanctuary for all wildlife and we continue to feed the turkeys, deer and occasionally the night life i.e. skunks.
