I abandoned most of my conservation group donations after they failed to stick up for Washington over the last 2 years. 

I'm happy to support this.  I'll be your newest member shortly.

This is exactly what's needed.

I'm joining too.  I've seen a lot of loss of opportunity in WA's hunting & fishing, as well as my industry, due to a passive stance towards our opponents that want to take, take, take opportunity and resources away.

I'm over that losing tradition, ready to turn this franchise around!

Do you have a law firm that is willing to take the case on and where do you intend to file the lawsuit?

Have you looked to see if there are any federal/state grant programs that are available to fund the lawsuit?  Thatís what the left uses for all their BS lawsuits.

Yes we have a lawyer.

As I understand  We do not qualify for the same kinds of reimbursements Animal Rights organizations do. That process is its own ball of yarn for a later discussion.

Crazy how the AR's can squander lots and lots money in the name of the EJFA Act and a bonafide Conservation group like WWC supporting hunters can't.  The AR's definately know how to play the game.

One does not hunt in order to kill; on the contrary, one kills in order to have hunted. If one were to present the sportsman with the death of the animal as a gift he would refuse it. What he is after is having to win it, to conquer the surly brute through his own effort and skill with all the extras that this carries with it: the immersion in the countryside, the healthfulness of the exercise, the distraction from his job. ~ Jose Ortega y Gasset

I belive the answers we all need are in following the money... I know WWC does a gun raffle each year selling tags at the sportsmen shows. They also make money from individual and  organization memberships. Aside from gifts or donations that is it as I understand.

Many anti hunting groups get thier lawyers fees reimbursed, so of course the keep one on the payroll. Many also make money via organizing land/conservation easement sales which can yield big monies. 

It does make a big difference when you get reimbursed even if partially to push your agenda, vs have to pay out of pocket. I am no accountant no research slooth, and I bet we as sportsmen would benifit from knowing how the monies are made and how they spend it.
In archery we have something like the way of the superior man. When the archer misses the center of the target, he turns round and seeks for the cause of his failure in himself.

I fear that POS Bob Ferguson, AG, will slow walk any lawsuits in order to bankrupt any opposition to Indsleys agenda.

I my oppinion the main way to overcome this problem is to have our sportmen, archery, trap, critter organizations to publically support this lawsuit.

I think many hesitant organizations needed some one else to be the tip of the spear. RMEF, MDF, DU BHA and others. I think MEMBERSHIP wants this, but only pressure by members can make this a wave. Remember when RMEF lost a ton of membership over the wolf issue? I belive that these hesitant groups can be forced to support. Generally I have been a skeptic of BHA BUT the Washington chapter has pushed back harder than folks lime me expected. Pressure your $ and membership on supporting this movement.  They may not be the tip of the spear, but they can be forced to support it. Inform your other organizations  about the issue and make your membership conditional on support of it! I will and you should also!

We have several groups that are verbally enthusiastic about the suit. We cannot currently comment because most need to vote in their board of directors meetings.


If you are a member of another conservation group, sportsmen club, or shooting club share with them the information from the first post. Encourage them to join us in support of the suit in name and money. We want the support of a wide variety of groups in both mission and geographic location.

THANK YOU! The rush of new memberships is encouraging and reaffirms we are on the right track.
