URGENT: Minnesota’s Hunting Heritage is Under Attack!

Saturday, March 1, 2008

Your Immediate Action is Needed!

Anti-hunting forces have launched an all-out assault on Minnesota’s rich hunting heritage.

On Monday, March 3, the House Game, Fish and Forestry Division Committee will hear House File 2501.  The Senate companion bill, Senate File 2329 is also scheduled to be heard Monday in the Senate Committee on Environment and Natural Resources.  Plainly put, these bills would ban dove hunting in the State of Minnesota.

Make no mistake, “animal rights” radicals won’t stop with doves!  In 1990, Wayne Pacelle, CEO of the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) admitted, "We are going to use the ballot box and the democratic process to stop all hunting in the United States... We will take it species by species until all hunting is stopped..."

Please contact the members of BOTH committees TODAY and respectfully urge them to defeat this attack on hunting in Minnesota.  Contact information for both committees can be found below.
