My thought is this, we need to support any and all Pro-hunter interests at a local and national scale. If we dont have a voice, then the CRAZIES will yell louder, and i think most Americans are neutral, they don't care if we hunt or not. But if the Anti hunters yell long enough, loud enough and we hunters are silent,they could swing the minds of the masses over time.
So i heard rumors that Melissa Bachman got kicked off of her job from National Geographic. Seems like there were too many gun nuts that didnt like what she said, and National geographic just gave her the boot. A feller did a NICE write up on it, and it shows how anit hunters think, and the extremes they are driven to. Great info if you ever have to argue with an anti hunter!
That last article shows the internet as a "force" to be reckoned with. If something goes "viral" even if it is an idea or funny video main stream media is beginning to pick up on that and react to it. If you can get National Geographic to Fire someone that is a hunter with just a lousy petition of 18000 people, how can we combat that? The only way it can start i guess is make a counter petition... i sighned it.
I think that over all to protect hunting rights sites and boards like this one will be instrumental. I just wish that we hunters could get a viral video of what we stand for out there. I understand why Ms. Bachman's photot went viral... Hot chick with a BIG bear and Pink Fletch arrows in cammo... kind of hot and sensationalist. So how do we hunters do it? Can we make a video go viral that is pro hunting?? Maybe some one has a wheeler bloopers video and a short bit of hunting in it, and then moose for dinner???
