Well for those of you who belong to or are interested in Rowland Ward, I received a message that they have closed their North American office. Wow...........they just moved it to Texas from the east coast less than a year ago and now it is closing its doors, apparently due to the recessionary problems. I also know there have been long standing issues between SCI and RW. In any event, for me, it is sad news and is indicative of the problems the entire hunting industry must deal with these days. Declining hunter numbers, an aging client base, less disposable income, and now the global recession problems which impact everyone to a greater or lesser degree. This next decade will see a very large number of outfitters and lodges go out of business.
