When Field and Stream talks...

Well... let's just hope Congress listens.

Kirk Deeter, the renowned outdoor writer who pens for Field and Stream, the Fly Fish Journal and Angling Trade, among others, just posted a blog at Fly Talk exposing the cuts Congress is proposing to conservation programs as symbolic and political. I couldn't agree more.

Join Kirk, and all ethical sportsmen who understand the vital connection between habitat and opportunity, and tell Congress to cut where it counts, not where it makes political points with donors.

  1. These wild places, and conservation of diminishing resources go beyond monetary value. The cuts to these programs will cost a lot more than "save".

  2. Thanks for the heads up.

    I will be contacting my congresswoman later tonight about this.

  3. People (political types) seem to have lost their way again. You can't put a price tag on everything. Sometimes it's just doing the right thing for the right reasons regardless of cost.
