Michigan Dove Hearing Set for Tuesday
« on: February 15, 2004, 10:01:19 PM »
Sportsmen Must Attend

Michigan legislation to permit dove hunting will be debated in the Senate Judiciary Committee early next week.  The U.S. Sportsmen’s Alliance is urging a strong turnout by state hunters, anglers and trappers.

House Bill 5029 will allow the Michigan Department of Natural Resources to establish a hunting season for mourning doves.  

It will be heard by the Senate Judiciary Committee on February 17 at 12:00 noon.  The hearing will be held in Room 210 of the Farnum Building, 125 W. Allegan St.  The building is on the corner across from the State Capitol.

“The anti-hunters will try to pack the hearing room on Tuesday,” said U.S. Sportsmen's Alliance Vice President Rob Sexton.  “Michigan sportsmen must remain committed to this issue and turn out to demonstrate their strong support.”

Take Action!  Michigan sportsmen should clear their calendars for February 17 and plan to attend the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing at noon.  Committee members must learn that Michigan sportsmen are eager to have a dove hunting season.  Those who cannot attend the hearing should call their senators today and again ask them to vote “yes” on HB 5029.  They should explain that Michigan wildlife professionals say there are enough doves to support a hunting season.

Michigan sportsmen can find their senators and get contact information by using the Legislative Action Center at www.ussportsmen.org or going to www.michiganlegislature.org and clicking on the "Related Sites" link.  Sportsmen may also call (517) 373-2400 and ask for their senator’s office.

The Michigan Hunting Rights Campaign was organized by the U.S. Sportsmen’s Alliance to pass HB 5029.  Members include A L S Enterprises, Inc., Commemorative Bucks of Michigan, Eastman Outdoors/Gametracker, Inc., Flint Chapter of the Safari Club International, Huron Pointe Sportsmen’s Association, Michigan Bear Hunters Association, Michigan Bow Hunters Association, Michigan Coalition for Responsible Gun Owners, Michigan Hunting Dog Federation, Michigan State Chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation, Michigan State United Coonhunters Association, Michigan Trappers Association, National Rifle Association and the Professional Kennel Club, Inc.  Michigan United Conservation Clubs and Safari Club International are also supporting the effort.

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.
