So at the end of the day they pulled all hunting and fishing equipment from their stores, publicly are left leaning, and are very anti-gun. That's enough for me. If one is anti gun then they are anti hunting by proxy in my book.
WOW, reading through the list from Paypal, what fun are they? If everyone followed those rules (or if they were enforced - like current gun laws...) Paypal would be out of business!
Lufthansa - German Airlines restricted trophy cargoI thought it would be a good idea for us to have a list of companies that have shown non support of hunting, such as certain airlines and the cargo ban, or of any company that directly supports anti hunting endeavors. Companies can certainly be added or removed from the list as positions change.
I believe it is also a good idea to put a short explanation of what they've done.
- Delta Airlines- restricted trophy cargo
- American Airlines- restricted trophy cargo
- United Airlines- restricted trophy cargo
- British Airways - total trophy ban
- Virgin Airlines - total trophy ban (Any Virgin brand, or anything else owned by Richard Branson should be included)
- Air Canada - restricted trophy cargo
- Saskatoon Inn (Coast Hotels) - cancelled African Expo
- Holiday Inn - cancelled African Expo in Toronto
With some quick research I was also surprised to find that companies likeREI and Patagonia may belong here as well. I will need to do some more research on those, or have someone else confirm, before adding them though.
I'm sure there are many more, so everyone please add. It is little things like this that can make a difference!
????from Namvic Tours & Safaris, this seems ode to me, and I believe it should be publishes as well....A hunter just shared with me an email, see below, that he received from Chris Sandmann from Namvic Tours & Safaris (namvicsafaris.com) in Namibia after inquiring about possibly renting a vehicle from them after his hunting safari.

So you will willingly use or buy from companies that refuse to recognize your right as s hunter and discriminate against us?I don't buy into the "us vs them" mentality from either side regarding boycotts.
If a company has the products/services I need, at a good price, and whose employees are helpful - I'll shop there.
I can tell you without any doubt that that's not how the anti's went after Holiday Inn. In Calgary, in Toronto, in Saskatoon, they had protesters blocking people's way, and in some cases, physically preventing them from entering. In Toronto, those who wanted to attend the African Hunting show were required - by the police no less - to listen to the protesters for some minutes, before the police would force the protesters to move aside. In effect, they intimidate. Both businesses, and people. Without that, they would have no success. And they seem to succeed.Yes, just as I would hope anti-hunters are willing to buy from e.g. Cabelas for their outdoor needs.
Being excessively divisive just leads us to be even further apart. Instead of calling Holiday Inn like an unstable lunatic to tell them we're boycotting them, how about we stay at the Holiday Inn and have cordial conversations to let them know we are valuable customers.
All the hate on both sides is just unhealthy imo
Let me be clear - I don't think we need to adopt the attitude of the antis. We don't need to intimidate, or use violence in place of reason. But we do need to use the tools we have. And nice conversations - while a start - are not nearly as effective as money.
