As I have stated, I should not have said what I did, it was a personal
comment that should not have slipped onto the list. For goodness sake am I
the only person to make a mistake here?
Let us just please forget this and talk about recordings?
Again, I humbly apologize for my statement.............

I'm certainly another who highly disapproved of that statement.
As way of thought, just think about how many marshes are still there
through the support of Ducks Unlimited. Or how many wildlife preserves
exist only through the support of hunters. Or how much access we have
because it's there for fishermen. Those areas preserve a whole lot more
than just ducks or deer for hunting.
I'm just back from a long loop through the west, where I visited many
such areas. And was very happy they were there, I definitely enjoyed
their wide variety of wildlife.
