Some Outdoormen to Consider Backing Kerry
"DENVER (AP) - Bob Elderkin's vote would appear to be a sure bet for President Bush (website - news - bio) on Nov. 2. He is a hunter, part of a conservative-leaning group of outdoorsmen that is 38 million strong and avidly supports gun rights.

But after backing Bush in 2000, Elderkin and some like-minded outdoorsmen say the Republican won't get their vote again because of his environmental policies.

"I can't vote for Bush knowing what it's going to be like the next four years," said Elderkin, a retired Bureau of Land Management employee in western Colorado where natural-gas drilling is booming. "With John Kerry (website - news - bio) , it's an unknown. As far as Bush goes, it's going to be `Katie, bar the door.'""

Hunters unite! Id like to see this get more attention. Im sure most of us here are well aware of the horrific enviro policies of the bush admin but I doubt many sportsmen know just what is at stake.

If you know any hunters, pass this article along. Let them know that hunting/gun rights does not equate to a bush vote.

1. I'm an outdoorsman and I back Kerry unequivocally!


Because I know that with 4 more years of Chimp, there will be a damn sight less land to hunt on or clean water to fish in.

Chimpy is BAD for the environment. If you screw up the environment, you ruin the hunting and fishing. It's THAT simple, folks!

3. Me too
Outdoorswoman and never voted republican. Never will.

What does it matter if I can have all the guns in the world and I can't use them because there is no land to hunt on, no wildlife to enjoy because pukes couldn't care less about the environment and public ownership of land?

4. I wish I was outdoors right now
Even though it's raining, being outdoors beats the hell out of working.

:argh:

2. My husband is a hunter here in PA.
He says Shrub's environmental policies are ruining the animal's habitats. If they have no place to live, they will not thrive--thus, no hunting or fishing.

He backs Kerry all the way.
