I agree with you if it's a 60 year old dude whose hunted the west a dozen times, but what I think you're missing is a generation of hunters who have never gotten to hunt those areas.Good to see some things never change. If a NR doesn't get their way, they're going to stop supporting public lands, grizzly bear delisting, wolf delisting, etc. etc.
I'm over it, have a good time in Africa, shoot a circus animal for me.
We should absolutely be worried about all the 20-30 year olds that will be the conservation donors for the next 30 years who never get started because they never have the chance to get hooked.
I've chosen to send all my conservations $ to RMBS, that's an org I would never have heard about if it weren't for hunting.
I bet RMEF gets a lot of $ from states east of the miss that don't have elk, not to mention the fact that everyone is this country votes for folks at the federal level that make decisions.
If you relegate hunting the west to locals and 65 year old dentists that will have some major negative effects for conservation.
