Legislators' Association Gives Nod To USSA Terrorism Bill
Draft legislation prepared by the U.S. Sportsmen's Alliance (USSA), as part of a nationwide campaign to combat animal-rights terrorism, has been adopted as an official model by a national coalition of state lawmakers.

The American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), a bipartisan membership association promoting individual liberty and limited government, has approved the USSA's Animal & Ecological Terrorism Act as model legislation. The USSA says this is an important step to educate state legislators about the growing problem of animal-rights terrorism. About 2,400 state legislators belong to ALEC.

The Animal & Ecological Terrorism Act specifically recognizes animal and eco-terrorism as forms of domestic terrorism; increases penalties for persons participating in politically motivated acts of animal and eco-terrorism; and creates specific penalties for those who encourage, assist or finance these acts of terror.

Texas Republican Rep. Ray Allen was the first to introduce legislation based on this model. His Texas bill is part of the USSA's national campaign to combat animal-rights terrorism on a state-by-state basis. Six other states are reportedly preparing to introduce similar bills.

For more information about the Animal & Ecological Terrorism Act, contact Rob Sexton, USSA vice president for government affairs, at (614) 888-4868 ext. 207;

something we may have to deal with in the future.....
A bill recently introduced in the California Legislature would eliminate hunting with dogs.

Assembly Bill 342 (AB 342), sponsored by Democratic Assemblyman Paul Koretz, would make it illegal for any dog to pursue or kill a mammal. The U.S. Sportsmen's Alliance (USSA) say it would ban bear hunting, fox hunting, rabbit hunting, raccoon hunting and more.

The USSA says the nation's leading anti-hunting groups including the Humane Society of the United States and the Animal Protection Institute, back the legislation.

The USSA is encouraging California sportsmen to contact their assemblymen and encourage them to vote against AB 342. To find the name of your assemblyman and for contact information, call (916) 319-2856, or click on the "Legislative Action Center" link near the bottom right-hand corner of the USSA Web site,

Illegal deer farm found

By Sun staff Tuesday, February 18, 2003 2:29 PM EST

Officers with the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources charged a Clark County man Friday with operating an illegal deer farm on the Big Stoner Road.

John M. Debold, 52, also was charged with illegally holding elk, fallow deer, axis deer, caribou and white-tailed deer in captivity without a permit. The operation was discovered after Debold allegedly attempted to illegally sell elk to undercover officers.

Col. David Casey of the KDFWR said officers confiscated several illegal animals and are processing them for testing at the University of Kentucky diagnostic lab. Casey said the animals pose a threat to Kentucky's native herds because they could have been shipped from areas infected with chronic wasting disease, a fatal disease in deer and elk that has hit 11 states.

Officer Sgt. James Bingham led the investigation.

I have never and never will give these money but here is more of our oppisition.

Hunting: Unfair Game


The stalking and killing of animals, which probably began during the Ice Age when plant food became scarce, has become a form of recreation; it is rarely necessary for human survival. Less than seven percent of the U.S. population hunts.(1) Hunting is permitted on 60 percent of U.S. wildlife refuges and in many national forests and state parks. Forty-five percent of hunters do their killing on public lands.(2) On federal land alone (more than half a billion acres), more than 200 million animals are killed every year.(3)

It is illogical that hunters are allowed to kill and maim animals who theoretically "belong" equally to the 93 percent of Americans who don't hunt. But because the state wildlife commissions and federal agencies that regulate hunting are now run by hunters, they perpetuate hunting year after year, regardless of the ecological damage it causes or the objections of nonhunters.

Powerful hunting lobbies in 35 states have persuaded lawmakers to enact "hunter harassment" laws that make it illegal for nonhunters to interfere in behalf of animals targeted by hunters, but these laws are being challenged on constitutional grounds. Connecticut's law was found to impact on freedom of speech without a compelling state interest and was struck down by a U.S. appeals court.(4)

"Conserving" What?

"Wildlife management" and "conservation" are euphemisms used to describe programs that ensure that there are always enough animals for hunters to hunt.

Every year tax dollars are spent to burn, bulldoze, and otherwise manipulate the environment to support the feeding and breeding of "game" animals, at the expense of the variety of species who share that habitat.

Hunting programs also cause wildlife overpopulation by:

stimulating breeding by conducting...
And to think I have given them money in the past....I got bored tonight at work and did a little fishing this is Directly off thier website

There once was a time when most Americans needed to hunt to put food on the table, but hunting today is a recreational pastime, and worse: waterfowl, pheasant, and dove hunting are no more than shooting at living targets. Some hunting is done solely to acquire trophies or to see who can kill the most; some is no more than shooting tame, confined animals. Brutally inhumane weapons such as the bow and arrow are increasingly used. In all cases, sport hunting inflicts undeniable cruelty—pain, trauma, wounding, and death—on living, sentient creatures. The Humane Society of the United States believes that causing suffering and death is by definition inhumane, regardless of method.
More than 100 million animals are reported killed by hunters each year. That number does not include the millions of animals for which kill figures are not maintained by state wildlife agencies.

The vast majority of species that are hunted—waterfowl, upland birds, mourning doves, squirrels, raccoons, rabbits, crows, coyotes, etc.—provide minimal sustenance and do not require population control.

Hunters have strived for decades to convince the American public that hunting is good for wildlife and good for society, often with arguments that are based on obfuscation and half-truths. They have deliberately focused the debate on deer hunting, for which plausible, but not necessarily true, arguments for subsistence and management can be made. But the holes in their arguments are becoming increasingly apparent, as is the magnitude of their waste, cruelty and destruction. More than that, sport hunting—the killing of wild animals as recreation—is fundamentally at odds with the values of a humane, just and caring society.

Will someone tell me the pros and cons of a chrome lined barrell
Thought I'd share a great hunt I had Sunday.
I came home Sat. night late from Florida vacation. After doing some chores around the house on Sun. morning I decided to go for a ride around the farm on my ATV. While going though one of the thickets I start seeing cattle tracks and soon find the source....It's a HUGE 2500#-3000# Bison Bull standing there looking at me. I ease out of the woods and head for the house. I read about a loose bison in the local paper a few weeks ago and it was reported to be following the creek that borders my farm. Anyone from Shelby Co. may have read about it also. I call the sherrif's dept. to find out what can be done. After a 2 hour wait I get a call back..."He's a nuisence animal w/ no owner and is FAIR GAME" ...Took me 1 minute to grab my bow and camo and head outside for a few practice shots. I headed out for the downwind side of the cedar thicket. I still hunted the thicket for 1-1/2 hours w/ no luck. plenty of tracks, but no buffalo. I entered a cleared bottom and the wend was swirling bad so I decided to back track and make another pass. I no more than took 6 steps, when a doe comes off the ridge above me and stops at 10 yards w/ my wind hitting her in the face, but she's lookin over her shoulder. Now things got hairy..Real hairy! The cedars start snappin and somethings coming at me quick. This beast comes down that ridge like a freight train straight at me. I'm knocking a shaft and at the same time trying to figure out where I'm gonna run. I have nowhere to run, I'm caught at the edge of the field w/ no trees to climb. He charges ahead and stops at 35 yards, pawing the ground, shaking his head and snorting...My heart is pounding, I must say. I stand my ground hoping he step into an opening...He doesn't ...The wind swirls, he snorts, and I see him running towards the front of my farm. I made a circle and tried to cut him off, but never found him. I cut his tracks in the fresh snow and forllowed them to a new hole he put in...

If ypu want to see what our troops over in Afganistan are doing check out this link. There is a link on the page to download an ac-130 attack video on the taliban. It takes a while to download (30 minutes on 56k modem) but well worth the wait. The clip is 7.5 minutes long and it inlcudes sound. It really makes you appreciate what they're over there for.

Anyone on here ever bowhunted CO for elk? Just starting to do a little planning for 2004. Hope to draw a WY mule deer tag for 2003. Anyways, I'm looking for an over-the-counter unit with decent numbers - not looking for "trophy" caliber elk. Feel free to reply here, or email me at if you don't mind sharing a little info.

Just wanted to say Hi! I live in western ky and I am a very serious hunter. I hunt what ever that is in season very hard. Deer are my passion I'm an avid bowhunter and my family even raise whitetails as a hobby.
link to the article[:D]
There is a proposed bill that would significantly affect the ability of the KDFWR to function as a managing entity of Ky's wildlife. There is an attempt to have deer and elk reclassified as livestock due to implications with CWD. IF the deer and elk are reclassified they would then be under the control of the dept. of agriculture, not the KDFWR. If this were to happen, then as much as $409 million would be diverted from the KDFWR to the dept. of agriculture. It has been mentioned before that the state would like to be able to get some funds from the KDFWR diverted into the state budget. This is one way that it could happen. If you would like to see the KDFWR retain control over the elk and deer herds in this state, and retain control of the money involved in this situation I urge you to call this number. 1-800-372-7181. It only takes about 2 minutes and they will give the message to your representatives. Please call now. All calls on this subject must be received by noon on 2/4. thanks for your time.

from the nahc weekly news:
Update: Assembly Committee Approves Wisconsin Right-To-Hunt Amendment
A Wisconsin Assembly committee approved a proposed constitutional amendment last week guaranteeing the right to hunt and fish in the state.

The Assembly Natural Resources Committee voted 10-0 in favor of the state's "sporting heritage" amendment, which would guarantee the rights to fish, hunt, trap and take game subject only to reasonable restrictions as prescribed by law.

The amendment passed both houses of the Legislature last year. It must be approved by two consecutive Legislatures and approved by voters in a statewide referendum before it can be added to the Wisconsin Constitution. It now goes to the full Assembly for a vote.

i recently heard somewhere that there is going to be a Gun & Knife show in the area around louisville does anyone have any info on the dates, location?

also does anyone have any antlers they would part with to be made into knife handles....a local knife maker is making some VERY great looking custom knives he will trade a knife made out of your own antlers for a knife made just for you skinner, or if you perfer a smaller or larger he can fix you right up also makes sheaths for each knife out of tanned hide...these knives have been selling for upwards of $60-$100 i told him i would see if i can help him locate he is running low

(*** also the antlers he perfers is a average size the bigger ones dont work very well**)
