From coast to coast, animal rights and anti-hunting activists are attacking our hunting heritage like never before. This year, they have taken their fight to Maine where an effort is underway to ban most common methods of bear hunting. Their fight against bear hunting is more than just bear hunting and its fight bigger than Maine itself.

The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) has already contributed more than $1.5 million into Maine to bankroll the bear-hunting ban. This is a direct attack not only to hunting but on the scientific management of our nation’s wildlife. Anti-hunters view this as the first step to their true goal: banning hunting nationwide. Attacking hunting in the state of Maine, with its rich and storied outdoor traditions, is alarming and signals to sportsmen and women everywhere the HSUS is not afraid to fight for its radical agenda. The time to act is now. We must protect our hunting heritage as well as proven, scientific methods of wildlife management.
