Action alert

Antihunters want CA F&G Commission president Dan Richards to resign. PETA HSUS

Please read this. What happens to hunters will eventually happen to anglers too. I don't hunt but I do love to fish san diego. If the animal rights movement gets rid of hunting, fishing is the next target. Please read this and show to your friends. The rest of this message is a forwarded email from COHA.

Dan Richards is the President of the California Fish and Game Commission. Because he 
legally took a Mountain Lion in Idaho the Anti’s, in particular the Humane Society of the 
United States-HSUS, have once again mobilized. They are trying to push one of the few 
hunters off the 5-member Fish and Game Commission. This is just a political hatchet job 
by the anti-hunting groups to get one of their own to serve as President of the F&G 
Commission. This is a tremendous threat to the hunters of California. If the Anti’s can 
get Dan Richards removed then they can control the California Fish and Game Commission. 
Further, it will give them great strength to move forward with their anti hunting agenda. 
My concern is this: as we so often see, things that happen in California soon become 
trends across the nation.

We have been told that calling and writing letters have the most impact. It is easier to 
send an email but they can be deleted. 

Here is what you need to do TODAY.

1. Write the California Fish and Game Commission a hard copy letter. Attached is a copy 
of a few letters for your review. 

Email and fax is easy, but a HARD COPY is BETTER.

California Fish and Game Commission
P.O. Box 944209
Sacramento, CA 94244-2090
Fax (916) 653-5040

2. Call as many Legislators as you can. Especially call the ones from your area.

3. Attend the California Fish and Game Commission meeting on March 7th at 8:30 a.m. at 
Mission Inn in Riverside, CA. The Anti’s have made it very clear that they will be 
picketing this meeting. Please come early and if you want to speak please sign up early. 
We really need to show a HUGE presence.

Why write the Commissioners

Why write the Commissioners when it's the Legislature that is trying to vote him out?

Not sure what you are asking.  He did write the legislators.  Basically he told them tough #($#, he's not resigning.  It was a great letter..... Wink

I heard it was great.  I also

I heard it was great.  I also heard there was some lady, possibly a lawyer, who made some comment about how would we like it if Child sex was legal somewhere, and he went to another state to do that.  Talk about not even being in the same ballpark.

The outdoor writer in the San Diego paper down here wrote a good article on the meeting.  Glad to see he had so much support.

Ca_Vermonster---I was

Ca_Vermonster---I was referring to the fact that it would be a waste of time for citizens to write the Commissioners because the Legislature is the body that would can him and would be the ones to contact!  It's great he got more support than the antis presented at the meeting, but that won't do anything if the citizens don't get to their nutty Legislators to put a stop to their intentions to fire him.
