CAL-ERT  2/29/12 — 8:30 P.M.
STATEWIDE HUNTING & SPORTSMEN’S ALERT — Your action is needed to help save hunting!
This information is accurate at the time this CAL-ERT was written and originally distributed. The NRA Members’ Councils of California will keep you informed as the legislative, regulatory, and/or litigation situation changes in California. 


President of the California Fish & Game Commission
Unfairly Attacked by Radical Anti-Hunters and their supporters

The California Fish and Game Commission is responsible for enacting hunting and fishing regulations for the state of California.  These regulations vary from state-to-state because each state is responsible for its own game management, because they know what is best for their own states.  

  Recently, Commissioner Dan Richards released a photo of him and a mountain lion that he successfully hunted while in the state of Idaho. Although California banned the taking of mountain lions, hunting them in most states, including Idaho, is absolutely legal.

Led by opportunistic politicians and anti-hunting groups such as the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), an effort is underway to remove Commissioner Richards from the CA Fish & Game Commission. The HSUS is probably the largest anti-hunting organization in the world and they have staked a tremendous amount of their prestige on removing Commissioner Richards.  We can’t let them win!

  Make no mistake, it doesn’t matter to the anti-hunting/fishing groups that Richards did nothing wrong.  This unfair attack is underway because these radicals believe they can replace him with a more anti-hunting commissioner, thereby closing off more hunting and fishing opportunities statewide.

If it is convenient, plan to attend the Fish & Game Commission Meeting on March 7th in Riverside and voice your support of Commissioner Richards. Tell them that since he did nothing wrong, removing him would be unfair.
