And this my friends, is the rest of the story, as published in "Outdoor Life". Please share.
When you hear other (so called) "Outdoor Writers" wondering out loud why SAM didn't bow down from the HSUS Lobby and simply "accept" losing 2 of our valuable hunting methods to avoid this referendum, know very well that anything we give is only a victory for the anti-hunting side that they didn't even have to fight for. There is NO WAY ON GOD'S GREEN EARTH we would sell out ANY fellow sportsmen in order to only slow the eventual loss of EVERYTHING we hold dear. We will fight for ALL sportsmen and NEVER compromise with those who desire to finish us all off, slowly, at a later date. Maybe you should ask those who believe we should have turned a blind eye to our fellow Trappers and Hounders and stood aside while they were taken out, exactly why THEY are taking that position. We are students of history, and words mean things, and we will fight, together, arm in arm, and NEVER back down.
