In case you guys hadn't heard, California Fish & Game Commission President, Dan Richards is under the microscope and legislators are trying to remove him from office. I blogged about it last week. SoCalBowhunter Blog Post.
He is being hung out to dry for going on a successful out of state mountain lion hunt. Some of the comments posted after the fact are incredibly ignorant and others are downright ridiculous. He speaks out for our rights as hunters and he is being attacked. He needs our support and here's how we can help.
IMMEDIATE ACTION NEEDED
California Sportsmen: Pro-Hunting Commissioner’s Position in Jeopardy Anti-hunting groups are trying to force pro-sportsmen, pro-hunting Commissioner Dan Richards off the California Fish & Game Commission. Why? Because he legally took a mountain lion during a hunt in Idaho.
A. Attend March 7 Commission meeting in Riverside, Calif., and speak in support of Commissioner Richards. The Mission Inn Hotel & Spa San Diego Room1 3649 Mission Inn Avenue Riverside 8:30AM
B. Contact your Assemblymember and Senator and tell them to support Commissioner Richards. http://www.leginfo.ca.gov/yourleg.html
C. Contact Gov. Brown 916-445-2841 and tell him you support Commissioner Richards.
D. Contact the California Fish & Game Commission 916-653-4899 and support Commissioner Richards.
Act today. Under state law, any fish and game commissioner can be removed by a simple majority vote in both houses of the state Legislature.
Currently 40 of the 80 members of the Assembly are calling for Richards to resign. This could easily tip the balance of power on the Commission into the hands of anti-hunting extremists. Show your support for Commissioner Richards today!
