x2, it's hard to trust the intentions of many animal rights groups after seeing some of the hidden agendas. Anyone who calls themselves a sportsman should be fully comited to carrying out that sport, wether hunting or fishing, in the most humane way possible. We respect the animals we hunt and fish and do our best not to cause unnecessary harm. However most of these groups that claim to fight for the rights of animals would have our sports eliminated if they had their way.
