Mr. Farbam:

The Board and leadership of Women Hunters, Inc. have recently become aware of your new organization called World Hunt. Unfortunately, having spent some time researching your program platform, we have decided to send you a letter of non-support.

As an organization devoted to promoting our hunting heritage with women and their families, we can not endorse any program that verbally espouses the virtues of hunting while then endangering the lives of wildlife through tranquilization for the purposes of human entertainment. Further, we believe that the false image of hunters and the hunt that such a program will covey to the non-hunting public is not only irresponsible, but in our view, unethical.

Please be advised that this correspondence will be further duplicated to any of the would-be sponsors of World Hunt in an effort to encourage them to reconsider any business alignment with your organization while your current stated objectives remain in place.

Sincerely,


Claudia A. Eisenmann
Vice President of Communications
Women Hunters, Inc.

Pope & Young Club Nixes
Proposed “Hunt†Tournament

CHATFIELD, MN — A recent announcement by the World Hunting Association has raised significant concerns within the Pope and Young Club. According to WHA publicity releases, a televised tournament series featuring “professional hunters†is slated for broadcast this coming fall. Competitors reportedly will seek to tranquilize deer within high-fence game farm properties. Lucrative prizes are to be awarded to individuals collecting the biggest or most captive deer during televised “hunts.†Both bows and firearms will be used to deliver the tranquilizing agents.

“Hunting is not a ‘catch and release’ proposition,†said P&Y President M. R. James. “Nor is it intended to be an entertaining public spectacle. The Pope and Young Club certainly does not want its organization identified with this type of commercial endeavor, either directly or indirectly. That includes any reference to P&Y-class animals or the use of our measuring system to determine the score of captive deer. This idea flies in the face of the ethical, Fair Chase bowhunting challenges our organization embraces.â€

Noting that the Pope and Young Club does not accept captive animals as record book entries, Executive Secretary Kevin Hisey added: “The idea that this concept is just plain wrong goes well beyond the issue of game farms and high fences. Many responsible hunters will view it as an affront to the values, principles and integrity of hunting so many hold dear.â€



Add another to the list, Bass Pro Shops has also issued a letter, I'll try and find it.
