Why the Lies Being Told in California Should Worry Sportsmen Nationwide
May31 by Evan Heusinkveld

It’s easy to understand why California Houndsmen are up in arms as the
animal rights lobby continues its push to ban hunting with hounds for
bobcat and bears. But what you might not know is why it should matter
to sportsmen in the other 49 states.

I have never hunted with hounds. But today I am a hound hunter because
each of the arguments the anti-hunting lobby is using against the
Houndsmen could just as easily be used against you and I. This fight
is our fight too, and here is why:

The Top Lies Being Told:

1) It’s Unsporting to use Hounds to Chase Bears:

This should pique the interest of every pheasant hunter, duck hunter,
foxhunter and more. The anti’s are running around Sacramento telling
legislators that it’s inhumane to allow a dog to chase a bear – they say
it isn’t fair chase. In reality, there is NO difference between using a
hound to track a bear’s scent and using a bird-dog to follow a
pheasant/grouse/quail. If it’s inhumane for bears – what’s next?
Pheasants? Fox? Coyotes? Raccoons? The truth is – they think all
hunting with dogs is bad.

The truth is - they think all hunting is bad! It has nothing to do with dogs! The dogs are just a vehicle for their agenda, which is to ban all hunting!

One more reason to get our youth in the outdoors,so we have people/hunters in the next generation to fight for their rights in the future. The balance of good (hunters/fishermen)vs evil(anti hunters/law abiding gun owners)is not in our favor.

Maybe a solution is to recommend the anti's go to the woods and stand beside the bear and ask him if he would like some help!We've seen that scenario before and I tend to like the outcome.
