Indiana Sportsmen: Anti-Hunting Radicals Trying to Close Fenced Dog Training and Field Trialing Areas!

Tuesday, March 30, 2010

The well-funded Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) is up to its old tricks again. HSUS is once again attacking Indiana’s hunters by attempting to shutdown fenced areas for dog training and field trialing involving foxes and coyotes!

A rule change has been presented to the Natural Resources Commission (NRC) to close all fenced coyote and fox training and field trialing areas based on emotional, politically-charged complaints. The NRC must consider the interests and concerns of hunters and dog owners before it takes any final action.

Governor Mitch Daniels (R) and the NRC need to hear from Indiana Sportsmen in support of keeping these dog training facilities open! Rest assured that a win by the anti-hunting radicals like HSUS on this issue will embolden them to take future steps toward their ultimate goal of banning all hunting.  Hunters must stand united against this brazen attempt to ban a traditional hunting practice. Indiana Sportsmen should stand against allowing emotion and politics to dictate rules in the Hoosier State!

Please contact Governor Daniels and the members of the Natural Resources Commission TODAY and respectfully urge them to oppose this rule change!  Governor Daniels can be reached by phone at 317-232-4567 or visit http://www.in.gov/gov/2631.htm to send him an email.  Contact information for the NRC and a list of members can be found below.
