Aussie style: shooters should look like this

Thank you for publishing Mr Andrews' letter regarding the future of hunting in NSW National Parks. (Echo 10.01.2013). I do find however, the picture chosen by The Echo, to inaccurately portray an Australian hunter. The firearm he is using is banned for recreational use in Australia, he is not wearing the mandatory fluro orange vest and/or hat, nor is he wearing hearing or eye protection.

I believe that this will give opposers of NSW NP hunting a misconception of what they can expect. I have attached a picture of what a NSWNP or NSW State Forest hunter looks like.
