    Even if hunting was banned I would be an outlaw.

    I hope that this never happens, because I depend on the animals I harvest to help feed my family. This would generate new problems for my already tight budget. I hope it never happens!

    I don't think that a ban on hunting could happen. Too many people enjoy some form of hunting. I live on Long Island, and have a lot of friends that don't hunt, but they don't mind that others do. I think there is a lot of people that don't hunt, but wouldn't want it banned.
    007 is right, we need to project the right image

    I think, and I've heard Sarge01 say the same thing in HS classes, that the decision is ours to make and it will be decided at the ballot box. If we conduct ourselves as sportsmen and women, put our best foot forward with a positive public image, and work to grow the sport thru our youth, then yes, it will survive. If we continue on with our slovenly ways and don't work with our kids, then it will one day be voted down by not just the antis', but also the non-hunting voter who makes his decision based on blood spatter vehicles, empty beer cans, litter, and shot up road signs. Which way do you want to go, my friends?

    A report on Glenn Beck this AM said the New York State Police are collecting guns from those people who are on a mind altering drugs. Anybody else heard this ?

    Theres no way. Hunting is such a major part of American culture both currently and historically. Any proposed ban would simply never pass.

    The Animal Rights Protesters stopped the New Jersey black bear hunt six different years. These people write letters and telephone their politicians. They were able to get the ex Governor Jon Corzine (another stinking democrat) to stop the bear hunt for four of those years. The Yogi bear Lovers are not lazy and are able to convince politicians. It is a shame the hunting fraternity is not as aggressive as the anti groups.

    I think the biggest problem is the lost of habitat. New construction kills good hunting areas and wildlife.
    It’s sad but New Jersey is turning into a concrete and asphalt jungle.

    While specific dollar values are a little difficult to pin down, it's safe to say our outdoor sports generate billions.
    Despite antis vocal objections, hundreds of years of tradition and real, positive economic impact, suggest our sport isn't going away.
    I'll do my part to promote our sport, but I refuse to accept the sky is falling mentality.

    at some point i forsee it being outlawed, as well as gun ownership. in my lifetime? i hope not, but i am young and the country is shifting more towards the left everyday...conservation as we know it would end as well. as much as these anti hunters hate the idea of us killing animals, we are the ones that truly protect them, not them.

    Hunting will come under increasing pressure from anti gun and anti hunting organizations. That, coupled with less land and hunting access will discourage the young people from taking it up.
    Older hunters should help the younger ones, guys and gals, try the hunting for the game available. Take a young guy out or give him some areas he could hunt. Pass out some extra game to people who may never have had it.
    Even though i really do not need any more equipment i make a point to spend $$$ every year to help support the industry.
    The more new hunters we can get involved the better and more secure the future of hunting will be.

    No, if it became illegal, it would be like speeding. People are going to disobey laws. I would still hunt. I wouldn't use a gun, and I would be careful about it, but nobody is going to stop me from what I do. Just let it be said that i am not a lawbreaker, yet.

    If private hunting is ever banned, government hunters could step in and fill the void.
    Just think of all the jobs that would create.

    Yeah, Drover, and that's how gun control will "eventually" occur..

    Just like the old Chinese saying, "A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step."

    One little step at a time, one little law, then another and another, etc, etc.....!
