thanks for saying what i said dave..To make this situation even more bizarre, there was an ignorant little diatribe by Richards‘ co-chair, Dave Lyon:“don't know mark, its a s if our request not to use our name or quotes falls on entirely deaf ears.really infuriating.how about this "DON'T USE OUR NAME. EVER, EVER, EVER!!!. DON'T ALIGN US WITH ANY GROUP HUNTERS CONSIDER ANTI. I DON'T CARE WHAT YOU CONSIDER YOURSELVES, IF HUNTERS CALL YOU ANTI ... YOU ARE.... USING AK BHA'S POSITION TO BOLSTER YOUR OWN IS CHEAP, AND MAKES US LESS EFFECTIVE AS A VOICE FROM THE HUNTING COMMUNITY."
+1 **** cant make this stuff up... and i JUST got this today.. and been saying it for a long time..If any "aligning" happens here, its origin is AK BHA's publicly-stated position. If AK BHA doesn't like that, then perhaps it should stay out of the public arena.
Just my 2-cents' worth, as I see it.
Folks: Once it’s out there it’s out there. There is no such thing as a “confidential” Email sent to 15 strangers. And there sure as hell is no such thing as a “confidential” Compass piece published in the Anchorage Daily News!I am amazed that a person like Mark Richards, who can write such intelligent, coherent Compass pieces, is such a babe in the woods that he wants to control who quotes him---even favorably---because he doesn‘t want to be “associated” with the perceived “cause“ of the writer quoting the piece. That‘s being out of touch with reality!
