    Received an email this morning from Duncan Watson from Zimbabwe that reads:

    I recently designed a hunting graphic to try and illustrate what hunting does for wildlife (In Zim)… trying to get the message out there…

    Thanks for inviting me to join AH and thank you for sharing my graphic...I am a cameraman so not directly involved in the business of running safari operations - however, my livelihood and passion lies with the preservation of Africa's hunting areas for us and our children. Hope some of you are able to swing a couple "fence-sitters" by sharing the graphic...

    I really like it. It's amazing how a well crafted graphic can make an entire argument!

    It is kinda - right down the left side of Africa...but didn't do it to get my name out - just the message.

    Infact I have no problem if people add their logo/name to the graphic!

    Great graphic. I really like how the submerged iceberg is in the shape of Africa.

    My liberal sister didn't read any of it (I am not surprised by this). My mother however found it very interesting (I was not expecting this) and said it put things in a new perspective for her. My mother is not anti hunting, but is usually not interested in such things.

    Very nicely done. I understand that U.S. Fish and Wild Life is contemplating the banning of Trophy Elephant Importation into the States. This image needs to be sent to them during their current "review" period while the "Public" still has an opportunity to voice their opinion. Just like most State DNR's I'm sure the Federal Fish and Wild Life Commission would prefer to base their decisions on "sound Scientific Game Management" rather than emotional outcries from individuals and or groups that provide no resources for the long term preservation of any given species.

    send away Shootist43...direct your local chapter to it...send it to SCI/DSC and get them to use it. I have used contact addresses that I have found on FaceBook and the general internet - but you may know someone who knows someone who can get it directly to where it needs to go....

    And why stop there? Send it to your Govenor; Congressman; President?

    Welcome aboard, Duncan. I would LOVE to help you spread the word and literally illustrate how hunting IS conservation, as we say here at SCI Houston First for Hunters. Is it possible that you could send me a JPG of the original art for this image to use in our newsletter, print and online media? Of course we'd give full credit to the source!
    Thanks,
