New Hampshire Bill Would End Trapping

New Hampshire Bill Would End Trapping

A new bill introduced in the New Hampshire House of Representatives is a backdoor attempt to ban the trapping and hunting of furbearing animals.   

House Bill 1514, introduced by Representative Steve Vaillancourt (R- Hillsborough), prohibits the sale, purchase, possession, and transportation of all raw skins or unskinned carcasses of furbearing animals.  The bill does make an allowance for the transportation or possession of raw pelts or unskinned carcasses, but only when the pelt will not be used as fur.  If passed, the bill would effectively eliminate trapping in New Hampshire.  Likewise, the bill would equally limit sportsmen who hunt furbearing animals like coyote, fox and raccoon.

“This bill bans the use of fur harvested from any animal,” said Jeremy Rine, U.S. Sportsmen’s Alliance (USSA) associate director of state services “By doing that, it in essence ends all trapping and hunting of furbearers unless you’re OK with wanton waste of animals…something that sportsmen are not OK with in any instance.  This is simply a very bad bill.”

HB 1514 is currently scheduled for a hearing Wednesday, January 20 at 10 a.m. in Room 307 of the Legislative Office Building in Concord before the House Fish and Game and Marine Resources Committee. 

Take Action! All sportsmen that can attend the hearing on January 20 are encouraged to do so and speak out against this bill.  For those unable to attend, please visit the USSA Legislative Action Center.  Simply enter your ZIP+4 Code and you will be able to send a letter to your legislator.

In all seriousness, the Marlin is a great rifle, too. I own a Model 60, one of the best rifles ever made.
Brownings are nice, but in terms of quality AND accuarcy AND ruggedness, it's hard to beat the Marlin.
California sucks that's it.
