Sportsmen and apathy ... a deadly combination

I just read Dave Richey's blog post on sportsmen apathy, and you should, too. Pretty simple message--if you're not willing to get involved to protect the rights of sportsmen to fish and hunt, and to protect fish and game habitat to ensure a future for our pastimes, then get out of the way.

Of course, the best way to ensure a future for fishing and hunting is to simply get out in the field and participate. Be aware of the various regulations and the frequently changing political landscape that is often skewed against sportsmen and women, and put yourself out there once in a while in a letter to your elected officials.

Folks, we can't count on anyone else to protect the places we fish and hunt or our continued access to them. This is a fight we must enter on our own. Read Dave's blog--he nailed it.
