Oh, and one other thing, I worked for the founders of the RMEF when they first arrived in Missoula and Holyoak's statement, "We're the same as we always have been" couldn't be further from the truth.
Kudos to Eastern Sports and Outdoors Show and shame on RMEF!
Short of constructing some sort of permanent separation on the grounds, this seems like a no-brainer to me... one day you let the men out, the next day you let the women and children out. You know, every other day kind of thing. What's so flippin' complicated about this?
Missoulians typically like to think of themselves as a progressive bunch... why then are they so behind the curve on this one? It's pretty much a no-brainer. Hang it up!!
Recently I was walking my dog along an area of the Clark Fork, which has historically been used by fishermen, hikers, horseback riders and dog walkers, when it came to my attention that trappers were now using the area to trap. While I also feel that trappers are entitled to trap, it seems to me they could go a little further afield than the local fishing/hiking access where people and their families go for recreation... I mean if you really want to be sporting about it.
Way to go Mr. Chyatte... it was a pleasure to read your letter. You couldn't have written it more precisely or concisely. It is a comfort to know that well informed, intelligent people such as yourself are looking out for the citizens of Montana and keeping a sharp eye on the legislature in doing so. Thank you.
