True but they have to put them in there. I just wish they wouldn’t let them lie! Every word from the antis is a lie! This is what I’ve leanred from the experience of being thrown into this debate. Misinformed if you must but I’ll just say lies.Any article that quotes HSUS and/or PETA has no intention of being unbiased. No matter how the rest of the article is written. There may be reasonable, debatable sides to most arguments, but not with groups like this involved.

Just another write up that shows there still after hunting. Just remember we still have plenty in our own house to clean up as far as sticking together as a group. Have heard words thrown around by hunters towards other hunters that are not much better then anti talk because they don't like something.
If that is fact that 10% must get donated for the permit to hunt endangered protect animals that is a new fact to me. That could add up to some big dollars going to a go service I would guess.
I would like to see someone put out how this helps and show how some of these animals have been saved because of the Texas ranches. I don't see the big anti groups raising endangered animals to help them out. They just line there pockets with the money instead.
Af far as support for me in regards to Trophy there has been a little indirect support from DSC but SCI has left me hanging. Even after giving them the film, the facts, and the results (positive including antis emailing me saying they are changed!!!) nothing but crickets chirping. My SCI Chapter President has emailed them all as has John Hume and others scolding them for distancing themselves from me as i do the hard work (something I’m accustomed to I’m a rancher!) They went so far as to put out an email Warning the clubs about Trophy and how bad it is and to refer all media questions to their PR firm. What an embarrassment. I can’t wait to confront them at the shows if given the chance!
It would be nice if people from this forum and others emailed all the officers of SCI and scold them for not supporting one of their life members in this endeavor. They don’t have to “support” the film but support their members and their efforts. I could go on but you guys know where I am coming from....
A few years ago when peta had made a big enough racket about endangered species and the permits were made mandatory to hunt scimitar horned oryx, addax, and a couple others here Texas ranchers started clearing them out because they couldn’t afford to continue to raise them without hunting them and didn’t believe they could afford the permits because they would have to charge a huge price to hunt them to make up that money and didn’t expect that hunters would pay it. I hunted my scimitar at a pretty good discount because of this. I caught some backlash but nothing serious. I did however write peta a letter explaining what the result of their efforts were and how the species was in more danger of extinction now than it has ever been because without any value the only remaining animals in the world which most are in Texas would be eliminated. Their response was basically that’s ok, we would rather see them gone than have them hunted. That’s the mentality you are dealing with when dealing with these people. They have no intention of educating themselves they only want what they want no matter how it effects the animal, people, or environment.
Philip,Time to fight back!
They already do!! One such anti organisation, "Animals Australia" (AA), are so aggressive they ignore the sovereignty of independent countries by making animal rights issues topics at diplomatic levels, of things that their opinion doesn't agree with. They also carefully ignore that such issues are perfectly legal and acceptable - culturally and socially - in these largely Asian countries, but that doesn't stop AA's opinionated activities.A lot of people don't know where meat comes from. These animals on that game ranch have a better life than a steer. Heaven forbid if they seen a de-horning operation. If they stop hunting they will go after the meat industry.
