    It should be noted that the earlier comment of "divide and conquer" seems to be working on this thread .
    When I see a thread with a title that doesn't interest me , I do not open it . As an example , "tequila" in a recent thread title .While I would have opened it if it said
    "FREE TEQUILA IN INDEPENDENCE MO. TONIGHT " ,it didn't ,so I moved on .

    If it works for me , it may very well work for others .WE all come here because of our dogs, and we are a diverse bunch to be sure .And try to keep in mind what is not your cup of tea ,may be of keen interest to another . So if it has broad appeal the General forum isn't out of the question .
    If it is point specific on a totally unrelated topic to dogs and pure politics , POTUS PLACE is where that belongs .
    SEMPER FI . FROM MY COLD , DEAD HANDS .

    they can do what ever they want. I'm a trapper and a predator hunting among many other things. Always will be. No law will change that. I believe in conservation, bag limits and many of the regulations. If you ban something because some people don't like it I will follow my own laws and am willing to risk prison time for it.

    I love field trialing.

    Yes, and yes.

    And BTW: I don't visit POTUS because...well...I just don't. My time on the site is spent in this forum and, like many of you, I appreciate the diversity of information and opinion we get here. As has been said...if you don't like the subject header, don't open the thread. IMHO, this particular thread is important for all of us, regardless of whether we hunt or trial or both.

    Thank you, Kevin, for posting it.

    When you don't have a point argue about the way it was presented

    Putting aside where it should be posted for a moment
    Where were they with their letters for the past 8 years?
    Where was our indignation during "W's" watch ?

    How about it Kevin, where were we?

    This actually sounds like an interesting issue marred by an (intentionally) inflammatory title that suggests that the groups are looking to ban hunting when what they are complaining about is the wildlife service (not hunters) shooting, trapping and poisoning a variety of predators. I don't know why it wasn't posted on the POTUS Forum where there could be some discussion without the constraints requested in the main forum. I guess Kevin is afraid that those who avoid POTUS are missing their mandatory minimum daily dose of hysteria. Chris nicely asked that political discussions be taken to POTUS. The overwhelming majority of respondents to the two polls on this subject have praised this action and credited it with making the forum a nicer place to visit. What is the problem?

    Maybe everyone should PM Blake before posting to get his approval. That would prevent a lot of this bickering. Would that be okay with you Blake. If you don't like this post let me know and I'll delete it.

    The weight of a Sherpa bag thread was better reading!
