Absolutely! A lawyer from Victor called me several years ago when I used “Conibear” in ads for our setter. He said it was their name and I couldn’t use it! Lol I’ve called them body grips ever since.

I'm so proud. It just brings a tear to my eye to this very day!

Ol Don ain't perfect, but he's about as close as politicians get! No way in Hades he'd let this fly anywhere. Proposals are cheap. Legislation is expensive.

I wouldn't fret too much over this one. It will fizzle. The thing to be concerned about is they will keep at it finding new ways.

We need to get all of the sportsmen groups (hunting, fishing, trapping) working proactively to get our positive message of what we do to the general public. If we can work together we will stay ahead of them. Maybe put them on the defensive for once.

I'd love to see the trap makers get queued up and have aluminum jawed, or titanium-jawed, or any other non steel-jawed leg-hold traps ready to go if this actually passed.

The best thing that could happen for the US would to be a meteor hitting the capital building during a joint session of Congress or a state of the union address.

I doubt it will make it out of committee. It is too vague and poorly written to become law as written.

But then again, I thought Georgia would elect two republican senators the other day.
