While shooting barnacle geese and greylag geese together in the Netherlands decade ago, Ramsey Russell and Brian Lynn could never have imagined the ferocious battles with embittered anti-hunting crazies awaiting their respective futures. As VP Marketing and Communications for Sportsmen’s Alliance, Lynn now daily fights anti-hunters tooth-and-nail, wielding facts and advocating policy like a modern day dragon slayer. Who knew Dutch anti-hunters read American hunting magazines, and what lead to Ramsey Russell’s name being shouted by politicians in Netherlands Parliament? How could anti-hunters be described demographically, what triggers them, and what does money have to do with anything? What’s behind the Oregon Ballot Initiative, calling for complete cessation of hunting and fishing? How’d laws banning coyote hunting contests in the Southwestern US bounce through Blue and Red states alike, escalating into proposals that could ban retriever hunt tests, make breeding a sexual abuse crime, or make possessing “any wildlife” a felony? Long after most of us forgot all about Cecil the Lion, how has federal language since been appropriated to ban wildlife import – and what interests do EU and US have in Africa wildlife anyways?! This fascinating discussion is going to be a real kick in the cajónes to anyone thinking that our hunting lifestyle is a God-given right in America. It ain’t.
