VT Governor to Youth...

Nice to see that hunting sees no political affiliation.  This is a good article about the newly elected Vermont Governor talking to kids about hunting. He tells them to each invite 2 friends to try it.

He also invites kids to hunt on his family farm.

Pretty cool, and a good read.

Although I know nothing at all about his political views I heartily agree that it's pretty cool for him to so outspokenly talk about his hunting roots and encourage more kids to take it up and give it a try.

Good job and hopefully we can get more that support the outdoor sports in this way.

Well, he's a Democrat, and was elected due to a heavy vote in the extremely liberal (granola type/tree huggers) city of Burlington.  They usually are people who frown upon hunting.
