Michigan is the target for these stupid ideas because of the dove referendum. They found a weak point and now will exploit it to its maximum potential.
I think you hit the nail on the head. I forgot about the damn dove bill.
Anti Hunters do not care what you use, what you do, what you believe. They care that the majority of Non hunting America gets the wrong idea. They want wildlife issues put on the ballot instead of decided by the scientists. They will use the divisions within our ranks to enforce their efforts and agenda.
Also of note is that both the anti gun and anti hunt crowds work together to get both agendas through. There is no reason for guns if there is no hunting and there is no reason for hunting if there are no guns is the reasoning behind this.
I don't care what the issue is; crossbows, EBRs, Sunday hunting, Doves, Trapping, you are on their target list and they will get to you, using whatever divisions they can find. Once they win on one, they also know that there will be no more incentive for you to support me, because I did not support you. Eventually, you will stand alone if things do not change now.
Migratory bird hunting in the United States can be ended by a Sec of the Interior telling a President that it needs to end and the President agreeing. If you don't believe me, google the Migratory Bird Treaty.
