I think you simply have to look to Europe to see where this is going to lead. You can hunt if you have the money. You can hunt if you can find a piece of property to hunt on.

This bears repeating, and I wish all Americans could grasp this. When you haven’t seen what things are like “over there” – in terms of the lack of wild, public land and the extreme elitism of hunting and fishing in many parts of Europe, then it’s easy to take what we have in North America for granted, and to not see the warning signs of where this is all headed.

The irony of becoming more and more like the place that many of our forefathers couldn’t wait to escape from, is something I ponder a fair bit these days…
