Here’s an open letter to National Wild Turkey Federation members that just arrived in my inbox. It’s information of interest to all Strut Zoners.

Cass Sunstein, President Obama’s choice for a powerful regulatory position in the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA), is a rabid supporter of animal rights.

This agency has extensive authority over all federal regulations including those coming from the Departments of the Interior (U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service) and Agriculture. If confirmed to this position at OIRA, Sunstein could block pro-hunting, fishing, and trapping regulations.

Sunstein claims that, we might ban hunting altogether, at least if it’s sole purpose is human recreation. He also supports allowing lawsuits on behalf of animals, a right currently only extended to human beings.

Views such as this raise serious concern about the agenda Sunstein will carry with him into this position if he is confirmed by the Senate. This is why it is crucial that your two US Senators vote NOT to confirm Sunstein as the head of the OIRA.

As an avid outdoorsman or outdoorswoman, you know that hunters and anglers are the greatest supporters of conservation, and that the $76 billion outdoorsmen spend on their sport annually not only supports wildlife conservation, but also bolsters jobs and local economies.

Now is the time to act! If you value your right to hunt and fish, and want the same rights for your children and grandchildren, contact your senator immediately!
