Default RE: Newest & Most Dangerous Threat To Bowhunting

One thing to remember that as much as we hate to admit it, there are some firearm hunters that would like to see us out of "their" woods with our longer, and sometimes earlier, seasons. The anti's are banking on the fact they may be a little short-sighted and not fight for the bowhunters. They should realize that if we are gone, they have lost a lot of support when the anti's come afer them. They have made no secret about it that they believe we are the weakest link. I am pretty old and it may not affect me as I probably hunted my last season last year (we'll see), but I have a son that I would like to see being able to keep hunting. Eider brought up a good point - we may have won some battles, but the dollar cost was very great. I think they figure they can wear us down, or break us.
