Hoping everyone can read the attachment.

I was re-reading a past PY Ethic magazine the other day and thought this article was exceptionally well done. While I appreciate and probably agree with Frank Noska's comment in Pat's interview that hunting will likely "never" go away in Alaska I would have said the same about BC.

While I'm a big fan and long time member of PY, I'm posting this more to point out what most of us know already. Our passion is in trouble.

In one sense I think a lot of the new blogs and podcasts are doing a great job of promoting our lifestyle--with younger Bowhunters. However, the idea that common sense is no longer common is nerve racking, that protests can eclipse facts is troubling.

What say you?

SFW and their new tag theft conORG in Arizona, lead by Pete Cimellaro, are using a recent hsus threat as the impetus to steal your big game tags and auction them off. again

I'm more concerned about the threat from within; I know what the anti hunter agenda is.

Theres our problem....2 posts in 2 days.

Hunters aren't joiners.....and they don't want to get involved in politics. Hunters use the excuse...it can't happen here. They think there are enough like minds in their area...and there probably are. The problem is incremental. By the time this crap gets to them....guess what, the Ca and Or and Wash hunters all remember they never lifted a finger.

Hunter apathy...its a sad state of affairs. If you are a hunter that doesn't vote and support a pro hunting org....you are the problem.

So the antis run roughshod over us.

I will say this, most antis (anti hunting/anti2A/anti-firearms) are Democrat/liberals, not all, but most.. if YOU are a democrat/liberal and bowhunt and own firearms, why the hell do you continue to vote for your leaders who will throw us all under the bus.. little democrats, vote for BIG democrats who then try to pass stupid anti-hunting, anti-gun laws ....this is not to say there are not a few screwed up Repubs/Independents also, but they are a minority....

there is a most stupid bill up in Minnesota that was written by one of their loony dems that would effectively outlaw firearm ownership ... Illinois has the same going on right now, as do some other states... all it takes is a Democrat POTUS, and a full blown democrat house and senate and this country is screwed... all it takes is a Dem. Governor and a state house full of Dems and your state is screwed ... people wake the fudge up ...

Unfortunatly, groups "within" like SFW leverage that hunter apathy very well.

Yep pretty nuts, I sent a personal communication to the authors asking why they are not moving to ban any and all LPG tanks. Or at least making it illegal to purchase until 21, BECAUSE the were used as a bomb at Columbine, media only reported on this fact mildly. We all know why.

So folks against 2nd amendment must be very proud of the Nazis stance on removing automatic weapons from the Jewish Lithuainian resistance so they could continue with the death camps and mass burial sites. Of the 80 people designated to burn and destroy all the evidence of the thousands of dead bodies, 13-15 escaped the Nazi guards to tell the rest of the world. That was rebroadcast on the Dems favorite PBS channels recently , I hope they all were paying attention. 2nd Amendment never has been nor ever will be about hunting, its about stopping tyranny and democratically elected governments from removing fundamental rights, killing their own people. The original "Never Again" our parents, grandparents warned us about, no longer covered in schools or popular media.

Well, now that this thread has unfortunately become politicized, I just hope the current Republican administration does not sell off our Federal public lands or continue to recklessly explore ways to mine and drill every square inch of OUR land. Politicians who aren’t knowledgeable about environmental issues and don’t care about habitat preservation will lead to the downfall of hunting, and believe me, they’re not all Democrats.
