Hadn't browsed Mack's Prarie Wing in a few years. Was on their site yesterday and noticed they are selling Patagonia clothing. I was shocked and a bit disappointed that a business (Mack's PW) that caters to waterfowl hunters would sell products from a company (patagonia) that has a long and well known history of being vocally ANTI-HUNTING. Just wondering if anyone else has noticed that. I wonder what Patagonia thinks of their products being sold to hunting sportsman.
For years I received the Patagonia catalog. Stopped getting it just prior to 9/11, when I requested they stop sending me anymore. I stopped buying their products based on their anti-hunting left-wing environementalist stance, that and the fact that I'd already spent way too much money their in my college years. Thought they always offered very high quality functional outdoor clothing and I used their products a lot when skiing, mountain climbing, hiking, and rafting. But after too many years of reading every new cataloge that devoted a page or two of anti-hunting and tree-hugging articles, being an avid hunter I finally got political about it and just got fed up with their views.
The North American sportsman's model of conservation just doesn't match up with patagonia's tree-hugging, anti-hunting, and neo-environmentalist views. I appreciate patagonia's stance on caring for the environment, but not at the high expense of being anti-hunting about it. Conservation and wildlife habitat plays a major role in caring for the environment. I hate to get political about it, but the more I see my gun rights and hunting privledges being attacked by these left-wing neo-environmentalist the more I think I need to be political about it.
