Still shocked, surprized and disappointed ! This is a HUGE issue for gun owners and hunters in Canada. No time for a passive response. For all the support hunters have given DU over the years, they should have our back on this one. Imagine how many more people would sign the petition if DU asked them too. I'm sure their tune would change if there was a serious threat to gun ownership in the US. I'm not a member of DU, but have contributed and attended many dinners. They will have to do without my donation going forward. >Pete
I am with you on the shocked and disappointment part Pete , what they are also looking at is the Federal side of things when they apply for grants and such , it's like this do they bite the hunters hands who yes contribute big time or do they bite the hand that gives out grants and funds that offset what hunters cannot contribute . It's a no win situation for them to take sides , so in essence they remain neutral and on the side lines letting it play out that it does not hurt to badly , after all they basically are a conservation/enviromental group , I'm by no means a enviroment whack job , but I'm not cutting funds off due to non support on hunters side , without them or Delta Waterfowl there be a lot of wet lands that would suffer .
Since this seems to be a sore spot with many , I clearly ask this " What's Delta Waterfowls stance on the New Gun controls going on in the U.S and Canada ? " If they choose a side I'd say it's state side more than the Canadian connection. As I say I could very well be wrong .
Wonder if they are neutral as well ? I'd be a betting man that they are , might be wrong but .
