Josh, if you do make it, bring some calls to sell, I need to purchase some from you.....
On my list, but have been procrastinating. If you don't make it tonight, I'll just hit up the website.
Good discussion last night.
Not a big surprise in retrospect, but did hear about the continued trend of state legislation being proposed to further restrict our current constitutional freedoms and degrade our hunting opportunities. Concerning to say the least.
For those of you not involved or engaged (this includes myself to a large degree), call to action time.
Be aware, be informed, be active, or wake up tomorrow wondering wtf happened...
I believe the overall general message and all the great acts/actions being done in the name of wildlife conservation by organizations such as NWTF, Ca Waterfowl, Ducks Unlim, etc... are either not being communicated to the extent they need to be, or are being overshadowed by the negative perception of what a hunter is. Not to mention the financial funding being provided to state wildlife organizations through the purchase of licenses, tags, donations, etc.... and what this funding accomplishes in the name of wildlife conservation.
I believe many of us 'hunters' are primarily conservationists, outdoorsman, family centric, community focused individuals first, that just happen to be hunters as well. Our message needs to convey this if we hope to influence the predefined perceptions that negatively affect our interests.
I, for one, plan on doing more.
And as always Steve, thanks for all you do and for leading the charge!
