41. Ah, excellent - good to see you back! Does that mean you're just now making

the DU3 transition?

I tend to agree with you about the sporting/conservation splits - I don't hunt (except with a speargun) but I do fish, backpack, and otherwise spend a lot of my recreation time outdoors. It just seems so obvious that environmentalists, wilderness users of all stripes, plus farmers/ranchers are natural allies on a lot of topics, enough to outweigh the differences. With more people living in urban and suburban setting, and fewer people using the wilderness, it seems like those alliances are increasingly important if we want to protect what we have. Unfortunately, that's not the general trend in political interactions.

I'll have to keep an eye out for Gray's, thanks for the tip!
