Last time I posted politics a few of you got wedgies in your drawers. This is a hunting blog and not a political site, we hear enough of that crap everywhere else all day. We come here for relief man!
I hear that and I appreciate that, especially with buck season coming on fast. BTW, I cannot remember a fall where there was so much excitement and anticipation in the air. If your energy translates to big deer on the ground, gonna be a killer year. Still, there is a little election coming in about 50 days, just when the rut will start to kick in most places, and so I feel obliged to point out a couple of things.
1) Don’t care whether you’re a Republican or a Democrat you are a hunter/shooter or else you wouldn’t be here. Sarah Palin with a shotgun on her shoulder on the cover of an elitist rag is a good thing for us rednecks. (I cancelled my subscription decades ago when they ran a cover with a starving, dirty boy sitting on a dark street corner and cover-lined it in bold print, “Regan’s America;” funny how you never forget some things.) Also, all the pictures popping up of Palin with salmon, moose and caribou blood on her hands isn’t hurting the cause either (hunting and by association our 2A rights). I even saw a shot of her working in an office with a brown bear rug in the background. PETA? LOL.
2) One day last week in Pennsylvania a lady asked Barack Obama if he were planning a gun ban. According to this post at the Wall Street Journal he replied among other things, “Even if I want to take them away, I don’t have the votes in Congress.’’
Even if I want to take them away? Just words? Scary man.
