    In 1937 congress passed a law that every box of ammo and gun be taxed to fund fish and wildlife agencies per state for conservation of wildlife. So... every time you go target practice you help a critter.:thumbup:

    We sure do. Sportsmen have done more good for critters than 99% of the bunny hugger/antis. The federal duck stamp is another good example.

    and that is why ODFW has such nice buildings in salem,
    why we have to pay to park at parks,
    why tag's keep going up and up.
    because we take care of it for every one else
