NY bill introduced to ban
A bill is being introduced in NY to ban all organized hunts including coyote contests, deer contests, even dog field trials! Unreal
This is going on in all states. They use the guise of these "killing contests" to sneak other issues in. The original proposal was to attack contests that used the contest as the sole reason to kill an animal.
Then they snuck in big buck contests.....heaviest deer....heaviest turkey...longest beard etc . Now the latest "sneak in", is the field trials. I guarantee you bird guys know nothing about this.
As soon as the liberals took over New Mexico this year one of the first things the new liberal land commissioner did was ban all coyote hunting contest on state lands .
Franklin bird guys know about this. It's been discussed, along with the Australian ban on just about anything dog trial related.
HSUS, PETA, Defenders of Wildlife, etc. the most asinine animal rights org's are behind this, and the idiot politicians and some wildlife officials are in bed with them ... this is the way these groups now work, get onto Fish/Wildlife Depts and change from within or find sympathetic politicians and do referendums by tugging at sympathies of the ignorant public where possible, or both .....
We're moving... But I feel it's a 'You can run, but you cannot hide' situation now. Unless we revolt. That's what it going to take.
You have to understand, they are energizing their base, and they are good at it,,,,, Wisconsin is now a big target, for many reasons, and I would not have a lot of faith on our legislature,,,,,,
When the far left takes over the Wis Supreme Court, cases will be brought, and the sportsmen will lose,,,,,, elections matter, get off you a.. and vote
Call and write your representatives, and make some noise, or we will lose
I believe in 30 years, and I will be gone by then, what we know of and have today, will all be over with, except for strict control, or those with the money
I agree Ground.....the latest push is all this "predator" nonsense. Everywhere you turn there is either a call to ban a predator season or reintroducing a predator to an area.
“Any person or organization caught participating in, organizing or promoting a contest, competition, tournament or derby that has the objective of taking wildlife for prizes or entertainment will face a year of jail time and/or a fine of not less than $500 and possibly as much as $2,000.“
I bet they’d make a case for including Fish as “wildlife” and then Bass Tournaments and Fishing Derbies would be illegal too.
Ignore them and do it anyway.
NY is a LIberal Dump.. they ruin everything they put their hands on. The Republicans are just as bad,they are spineless and never push back. Can't wait to retire from this sh!TH%le state.
Just a matter of time before were all screwed. Every day is like a WTF moment. When will it end? Politicians have to go.
Bou'bound,,,, says it will never happen,,,,, really,,,, I will predict the wolves will be introduced in Colorado,,,, lets see, that place already restricts trapping, got rid of their spring bear seasons, and they keep chipping away
Other states have lost and keeps getting chipped away at...........
we argue about a stick bow and compound and xbow and lots of nonsense, but they the antis keep at it in the state Capitols.....
Boubound it will never happen, if we keep up the fight,,,, but I do not see the urgency from the rank and file,,,,,
