Good Ridance & Farewell at last to Mark Sullivan
I have attended almost all of SCI's conventions beginning in 1972. I was the 5th SCI president and have been an exhibitor (antiquarian books on Big Game Hunting) For the past 10 or so years I have been writing and talking to the Exhibitor's Committe about Sullivan's visual onslaught of tasteless killing, and requesting his removal from the floor. Finally it has been done! We can be thankful that PETA and other anti's did not seize the opportunity to deal SCI a telling sucker punch. I will continue to lobby for more stringent policing of its own rules on this subject.
Promote of hunting and hunters !
In Europe we are facing a very strong Non Hunters Power, they are trying to stop us from all kinds of hunting, and as soon as they find anything "wrong" and painful kind of hunting, and of cause when they find hunts like
Mr Sullivan's, they are jumping of happiness, cause to show how hunts are done Mr Sullivan's, way, will have all non hunters scream " Stop the crazy murderers" and what can we do or say ? except trying to explain that there are always, in all kinds of groups, "strange behaviors".
Anyway, to "kick" Mr Sullivan out after + 30 years as a member, without any comments, seems very strange. Can it be something else then Mr Sullivan's way of making films and his way to express him self as :The Hunter without fear of death and without respect of animals ?
