    Here is some great information that shows just how much hunters help out our communities, states, and country.  I would like to see the number on how much animal rights/anti hunting group put back.  Wish this information could get out to everyone in this country.  Maybe it would help to change some peoples view on hunting.

    Hunting and the shooting sports play a huge role for our economy wish everyone saw it that way or at least didn’t try to push their opinions on everyone. Most people don’t realize that maybe two generations ago their relatives hunted for their own food.
