Thanks WW, I am not going to argue the facts, just the argument.
I really wish that issues regarding pollution, natural habitat, and natural resources WEREN'T so political. One of the reasons I love this magazine so much, is that it seems to cater to the hunters and stays neutral when it comes to politics. Many other outdoors magazines seem to preach politics with their publication. That is why I don't renew them.
I wish that conservation groups/clubs also didn't have to be political. It seems that they have to be affiliated with a party or have major lobbying to try to get anything accomplished, and it seems like it is so bipartisan that even if the principles are important to a politician, they will still vote it down just because of an affiliation to a party.
Good luck to all, hunt safely. Only 16 more days 'til MN firearms opener!
