    Excellent post. It is unfortunate to think, but I believe my children 8 and 11 years old may live to see hunting and possibly fishing go away here in the state of California. God forbid it happen in my lifetime.

    I just don’t think my message is being heard. I was told to shut this forum down this am. I accidentally deleted that email.

    Bring attention to it from any angle, and the party is over.

    Agreed,,,, but take out the Liberal Minion comment and it's hard to dispute his point.

So, although they pay lip service to the two sports, no one should expect much support from the Governor or the Legislature beyond what influence some of the pro-outdoor legislators may be able to provide.

    I can remember the day when every newspaper ran and outdoor sports page with fishing and hunting info and opening season articles. Sadly, other than some small town exceptions, that is a thing of the past. The public has been trained to see Whole Foods as the best source of fish as opposed to the barbarians who put a hook into creatures and tortures them.

    Another helpful, original, articulate and well supported comment. Liberal minions, lip service and Whole Foods + Barbarians, all in one post. ��

    I give it a C+ mostly because you missed snowflake, moonbeam, and only got in a couple “they”s. You do get credit for referencing California (sneer implied for emphasis), legislature and the obligatory “eventual goal of many in power”. Adequate try, but tighten up the foil hat and trying putting in a little more effort next time. You can do it.....��
