This worries me more than CRP loss

I just read on line that hunters are down 10.7% in the last 10 years. The number one reason is lack of affordable places to hunt. The average guy cant afford thousand dollar pheasant hunts for a few days, If he want to bring his kids its a HUGE expense. 3000 for a few days hunting. Pay to hunt is going to kill our sport. Please dont support it! you can see how much land is already locked up, available only to the people with big money, THe number of hunters goes down and we loose our voice in congress and elsewhere. Soon we will be such a small minority that our voice will not be heard and then the fat lady will sing.

True,lack of access is one of the reasons cited in the USFWS report, which is basically a compilation of reports from state ADF&G agencies. And it IS a primary reason people are dropping out. What is more disheatening is the fact that YOUNG people are not interested: mom hates guns' dad doesn't hunt;sitting in front of a video screen is more exciting than sitting in a cold damp duck or deer blind and why walk through all that stubble, swamp and briarland when I can work out at the gym?

Now, toss in the price of ammunition-have you checked the prices for shotgun shells yet this fall?- and it gets tougher than ever to justify it.

And speaking of the "fat lady singing...." One of the fat ladies who'd love to sing away hunting and shooting wants to be your president!!!

Remember, buy your shotgun shells now; there is likely going to be another price increase before the end of the season.

That is all. Smoke 'em if ya got 'em. At ease. confused.gif
