Conservationist Hunters Should Find a New Party

10,000 Birds

Though I will always question to some degree the motivation behind hunters’ conservation initiatives I find it fascinating that the current Republican Party, completely in thrall to the Tea Party budget hackers, is seriously angering one of their traditional constituencies. Here’s hoping hunters – and their organizations – agree!

Another Effort to Ban Hunting with Lead Bullets

You’d think it would be a no-brainer but sadly hunters are resistant to a lead-bullet ban. Over a hundred organizations have again petitioned the Environmental Protection Agency to ban lead in hunting – a move opposed by many hunting groups. In California, where there is already a ban to protect released California Condors , the Ventana Wildlife Society is giving away non-lead ammunition with the hope that it will encourage hunters to follow the law.

Green Dieting

The Duck Stamp and Lack of National Wildlife Refuge Funding

10,000 Birds

They don’t take into account the valid concerns non-hunters have about buying the stamp, which fall into two main areas: 1. Many wildlife watchers, birders and photographers don’t want to support a stamp that is so intimately and historically associated with hunting. 2. Duck Stamp sales to non-hunters are not accurately calculated to reflect their contributions – which tends to short change the conservation goals of non-consumptive users.
