Ed Dentry's Nov. 7 column in the Rocky Mountain News ("NRA alienates hunters with latest positions," Sports) accuses the National Rifle Association of alienating hunters through its opposition to a bill in Congress that proposes wilderness status for 20,000 acres of Bureau of Land Management property east of the Arkansas River above Browns Canyon near Salida.

Regrettably, these elements are diminishing every day in America. As the world's largest hunting organization, the National Rifle Association works tirelessly to preserve and enhance these vital elements.
