Drilling the Wild

Good column in Field & Stream. Yes, I said Field & Stream. Via Sirotablog. I've always felt that once you scraped off the scum, i.e., the NRA,, most hunters, anglers, walkers, have always been progressive, since they are out in the woods because they want to be, not because they have to be.

"With deep ties to the oil and gas industry, Bush and Cheney have unleashed a national energy plan that has begun to destroy hunting and fishing on millions of federal acres throughout the West, setting back effective wildlife management for decades to come."

The question is will the Field & Stream crowd stop voting for those that destroy the very things they cherish?

Probably not because Rove will convince them there going to lose their guns, fishing rods and walking sticks if repugs are not re-elected.

This is a great opening for the Dems. With the Bush policies cited as well as a lot of paper company land that was in forest crop locally being sold to private parties, people are losing places to hunt and fish. The recent purchase in northeast WI by the Doyle admin was bitched about by legislative republicans and should be cast as republicans want people to have guns but places to hunt are only for people who can afford to pay.
