    The comments in this link are eye-opening. Unfortunately, if there numbers are correct only 6% of the population hunts. We are definitely in a battle just to allow hunting in any manner. Thanks for the link JJ, but it is depressing to read the comments.

    No doubt the deck was stacked in their favor. And while it's true Stephen, the accompanying comments are indeed depressing, but these are the real facts that needs to circulate...

    The H$U$ pays Wayne Pacelle over 30 million $$ a year to do what he does - and he does it quite well too. I know I'm preaching to the choir, but I'll preach for my industry to anyone who will listen, until the last day and last breath of my life.
    Taxidermy has been so good to me and mine, that I just believe with all my heart we will succeed in promoting and defending our industry wherever and whenever the need arises. You can't put that kind of passion that we have in a cardboard container with a picture of an emaciated dog on it, chained to a supermarket cash out. Thanks for taking the time to read all those comments!
