The Importance of Hunters

Postby Legband#1 » Fri Apr 04, 2014 5:52 pm

This is Pretty Amazing!

A blogger added up the deer license sales in just a handful of states and arrived at a striking conclusion:

There were over 600,000 hunters this season in the state of Wisconsin ..
Allow me to restate that number: 600,000!

Over the last several months, Wisconsin 's hunters became the eighth largest army in the world.

That’s more men under arms than in Iran. / More than France and Germany combined.)

These men, deployed to the woods of a single American state, Wisconsin, to hunt with firearms,

That number pales in comparison to the750,000 who hunted the woods of Pennsylvania
& Michigan 's 700,000 hunters, ALL OF WHOM HAVE RETURNED HOME SAFELY.

Toss in a quarter million hunters in West Virginia
and it literally establishes the fact that the hunters of those four states alone
would comprise the largest army in the world.
add in the total number of hunters in the other 46 states.
That is millions more.

________ The point? _______________________________________
America will forever be safe from foreign invasion with that kind of
home-grown firepower!
Hunting... it's not just a way to fill the freezer.

It's a matter of national security.
That's why all enemies, foreign and domestic, want to see us disarmed.
Food for thought, when next we consider gun control, whether you agree with it or not.

Overall it's true, so if we disregard some assumptions that hunters don't possess the same skills as soldiers, the question would still remain...

What enemy army of 2 million
would want to face 30 million, 40 million, or 50 million armed citizens???
For the sake of our freedom, don't ever allow gun control or confiscation of guns.

Good point from an NRA life member.

I am pretty sure some of those hunters shot each other and some died. Fact fail and Readers Digest style email is invalid.
My lab died, and no one on Duckhuntingchat even cared.
