Columbus, OH --(Ammoland.com)- It’s the beginning of a new year and that means that the outdoors industry is buzzing with excitement with nearly all of the major shows and conventions being held in the first couple months.

This year is no exception but the buzz was a little different. While there was the usual thrill of seeing new products and catching up with friends and industry partners, there was a bit of an edge that could be felt, and it was created by the recent attacks on sportsmen by animal rights extremists.

While popular hunting figures Melissa Bachman and Olivia Opre became high profile targets, so too did a young woman from Pennsylvania who was attacked by a bear while deer hunting. Despite the real possibility that she could have been killed, PETA sent the girl an unimaginable letter that included ridiculous quotes like “This seems to be a good opportunity to put yourself in the place of the individuals you and the rest of your hunting party were trying to kill.”

Perhaps the pinnacle was the outrage expressed by animal rights extremists over Dallas Safari Club’s auction for a black rhino hunt in the Republic of Nambia, which raised $350,000 for the conservation of the species. A simple internet search will lead you to literally thousands of derogatory comments from people who did not bother to learn about the conservation benefits being provided by this auction, and how it will be a big step toward saving the species.

It is clear that these recent attacks have only served to further strengthen the grip sportsmen have on their hunting heritage. We have had enough, and we will not sit back and let those who oppose us define who we are to mainstream America. There has never been a more important time than now to stand up and protect what you believe in, and I look forward to fighting with you to defend our heritage.

    1. The Grey wolf is a beautiful animal I would not mind having one as a pet, they do make a very good and loyal friend.
