Put up a billboard in oppostiion.
In a recent news article titled “Wyoming remains premier spot for hunting” the auhor discussed many things hunting, but one thing stood out to us; how two billboards with opposing views were put up directly behind one another.
According to the article “one billboard…features a hunter and an enormous grizzly, and the words, “Welcome To Wyoming. Here We Hunt, Trap, Shoot, And Wear Fur.” Behind it is another billboard, featuring a picture of a baby wolf and a message reading “Odds Are This Wolf Pup Won’t Live To See Her First Birthday.”
Sportsman can apprecaite this response by Scott Weber, a local hunter and gun dealer who put up the pro hunting billboard as a response.
The article goes on; “there are degrees of opposition to hunting in American society. Some organizations want all hunting banned forever. Others are OK with traditional subsistence hunting to feed families, but oppose trophy hunting. The Humane Society of the United States is another group which opposes hunting. The HSUS has attacked several longstanding hunting policies in courts and helped fund voter initiatives in different states.”
Sportsmen must be aware that these attacks on our hunting rights are escalting. The purchase of a billboard was a terrific response by Mr. Weber. When interviewd for the article he said “we’ve got to keep the pressure on those anti-hunters.”
