Help Preserve Bear Hunting In Maine!

Friday, July 30, 2004

National animal rights groups, led by the Humane Society of the United States, have organized and funded a ballot initiative for the November 2 election, that would ban the three traditional methods of bear hunting—baiting, hunting with dogs, and trapping. These groups routinely use ballot measures to curtail hunting throughout the country and have been successful in several states, including banning all trapping in neighboring Massachusetts. Please be sure to encourage your family, friends and fellow sportsmen to vote "NO" on this initiative in the November 2, election.
