HSUS Attempting To Ban Hunting

Everyone,

Please write to your senators and representatives regarding this topic today. I will probably never have the ability to hunt polar bears. However, their goal is to make this species specific until they do get to something that I do hunt. At that point they will have set a precedence and will take away my right to take away my ability to match wits with the wiley whitetails that I am so passionate about.

You can find them either on a link from the NRA website or complete a google search by typing in, "congress" for your representative and, "senator" for your senator. Just click on the link to each respective website and look for your state. It is quick, easy and painless.

Please act today, so we don't have to pay the price tomorrow.

HSUS Attempting To Ban Hunting

The part of the Michigan dove hunting vote campaign that bothered me the most was the commercials sponsored by the HSUS. They had a man and a woman dressed in hunting clothes in the outdoors and asked everyone to vote against dove hunting, because, "real hunters don't shoot doves." They also passed off a misconception that you can't eat them.

I just fumed every time the commercial aired.

Unfortunately, I never once saw a commercial that aired dove hunting in a positive light prior to the vote. We just didn't fight hard enough or do the right things prior to the vote.

Let's not have that happen again.
