1. Does it need a host?

It gets very little traffic.

2. It could get more traffic with a motivated host...

Right now it's just wasted space.

Group Hosts should be leaders when needed IMHO.

3. 136 views and no one wants to make a committment...

Seriously, post "outdoor life" related articles and it will probably help bring this group more alive. Considering how many outdoorsy people DU has I think it's a great challenge.

4. I would not call myself motivated, but

if folks think this group needs a host, I am willing to sit in the chair for a while.

5. I'll start a unanimous consent motion to make it democratic.

Providing no objections or no other candidate and thus requiring a vote. Democracy is always the best route. Here goes: http://www.democraticunderground.com/121488

And as I stated in the Gungeon, I personally have no objection to discussion of sporting/target shooting in this group. It seems like the right place for it given the allowance of hunting discussion.
