Michigan's largest conservation and sportsmen's group is taking aim at J.C. Penney for marketing boys' clothing with an anti-hunting message.

A card attached to shirts in the ``Environmental Protection Department' line of clothing shows a sketch of a bird hunter aiming a shotgun over which a large red ``X' has been marked. Under that are the words: ``Absolutely No Hunting of Wild and Free Animals While Wearing This Garment.'Tags in the clothing indicate it was made in Hong Kong.

Thomas Washington, executive director of the Michigan United Conservation Clubs, called the tags' message ``simply outrageous.'

Penney spokesman Duncan Muir said, ``We didn't produce this merchandise. It came in from a supplier, and we certainly don't endorse this position at all.'
