California: Anti-Hunting Groups Continue Pushing Radical Agenda

Friday, January 10, 2014

Your Voice Must be Heard before the Wildlife Resources Committee Adopts Draconian Hunting Regulations.

California`s sporting heritage is under attack by animal "rights" extremists who want to ban all hunting, trapping and fishing.  Just as the gun ban groups have tried to divide and conquer by targeting certain types of guns and gun owners, the animal “rights” extremist groups are targeting specific forms of hunting and are attempting to whittle away at your hunting heritage one step at a time.  We cannot let extremists like Wayne Pacelle, CEO of HSUS, who is quoted as saying, "If we could shut down all sport hunting in a moment, we would," in the Associated Press, Dec. 30, 1991, continue to bully those in-charge of hunting regulations with their emotional and unscientific chatter.

 

NOW is the time for sportsmen to stand together and protect California’s hunting heritage and your chance to do so is Wednesday, January 15.  The Wildlife Resources Committee, a subcommittee of the California Fish and Game Commission is having an open hearing on January 15, from 12:30 pm to 4:00 pm at the Van Nuys State Office Building Auditorium, 6150 Van Nuys Blvd., Van Nuys, 91401.  This hearing is to consider numerous proposed amendments to hunting regulations that could fundamentally change how you may hunt in California.  Listed below are some of the radical proposals being pushed:

 

  • Regulations for the implementation of the ban on the use of lead ammunition for all hunting in California.
  • Ban all bobcat hunting and trapping in California.
  • Ban the use of dogs for the pursuit and take of ALL wildlife in California. 

 

It is CRITICAL that you spread the word to your family, friends and fellow sportsman and urge them to attend this hearing to OPPOSE these anti-hunting proposals. Whether you can attend the hearing in person or not, please call Fish and Game Commissioners Jim Kellogg and Jack Baylis at (916) 653-4899 or write them via fax at (916) 653-5040 or e-mail at fgc@fgc.ca.gov and express to them your opposition. 

 

The complete list of hunting regulation proposals that will be heard at this hearing can be found at http://www.fgc.ca.gov/meetings/2014/jan/Predator_Policy_Worksheet.pdf
