WE NEED 5 MILLION SPORTSMEN TO RESPOND TO THIS MESSAGE.
Take 30 seconds to send your message then forward it to your friends!
Powerful anti-hunting groups are sending tens of thousands of messages to block state conservation efforts. We need every hunter in America to respond to this assault. To protect the future of conservation and hunting in America, please send a message at http://biggameforever.org/take action.
Our wildlife herds are disappearing at an alarming rate. Family ranchers and sportsmen are being hurt by the destruction of livestock and wildlife. It has become apparent that unmanaged wolf populations pose a serious threat. Now is the time for hunters to stand shoulder to shoulder in a united effort to save our wildlife.
Here are just a few examples:
- Minnesota 97% Decline: Hunt Closed. Moose in Northwest Minnesota have gone from 4,000 moose to 100 moose in the last 20 years. Statewide moose hunts closed last year.
- Montana 80% Decline: Hunt Closed. Elk in Montana’s Northern Yellowstone herd have gone from 20,000 elk to less than 4,000 elk. The late Gardiner Elk Hunt is now closed.
- Wyoming 80% Decline: Hunt Closed. Moose in Jackson have declined by the thousands. In some areas, total moose counts are in the single digits. Six hundred moose permits are now gone.
- Idaho 87% Decline. Elk in Idaho’s Lolo area have declined from 16,000 elk to less than 2,000 elk.
The number of herds that are showing serious warning signs are increasing. Without responsible management, bad things can happen. In many areas, wolf numbers and overall predator density have lead to excessive predation on adult moose, elk and deer. Not enough recruitment of fawns and calves have led to dramatic herd declines. This has become a growing conservation crisis.
Why your help counts.
We need your help to address these threats. States need the management flexibility to respond to problems BEFORE they become a crisis. Opponents want to force unmanaged wolves, by federal mandate into Colorado, Utah, the Pacific Northwest, Arizona, New Mexico, and California. We cannot afford to allow these threat to go unchallenged. By sending your message at http://biggameforever.org/takeaction, you will be uniting with a growing army of sportsmen who will not allow anti-hunting groups dictate our future. This automated system provides a standard, editable message. With one click, your message will be sent to key decision makers.
Hunters, Take a Stand for Conservation.
Teddy Roosevelt once declared that hunters were the true conservationists. It’s time for hunters to play that role and take a stand. It’s time to demand restoration of our wildlife. It’s time to stop efforts to spread these failed policies to any more herds and any more states. States need our help to heal America’s wildlife herds.
Thank you for your support,
