Saturday was National Hunting and Fishing Day. Since this observance of America's outdoor sportsmen and women took place last year, their images were consistently beaten up by an intense, offensive public relations campaign that anti-hunting and anti-gun ownership advocates conducted on a 24/7 schedule.
Are they achieving any successes? In many respects, the answer has to be yes, because the anti-advocates leadership realizes the support they most assemble lies throughout the nation's grassroots communities voters and their respective governmental bodies at the municipal, county, state and federal levels.
While 2012 is indeed a highly important election year, the 2016 presidential election will eventually arrive, and in the months preceeding that event, Hillary Rodman Clinton will once again become the major attraction on the national political stage.
So, as the truly dedicated American outdoor sportsmen and women deservedly enjoyed their day of recognition, every one of them should also realize it's time for them to roll up their sleeves and get to work 24/7 over the next four years to protect the sport of hunting and fishing from becoming completely destroyed.
