Amid the bedraggled economy, the war-torn Middle East, unemployment, national security, gas prices, and whether to raise or lower taxes there isn’t much attention paid in a presidential campaign to sportsman’s issues.
Paul Ryan drew some attention for his affection for bow hunting and has rated a few national stories, but for the most part it’s hard to say for certain where either Barrack Obama or Mitt Romney stand on the matters of hunting or fishing–especially fishing.
Typically the NRA sees to it gun owners are well versed on where the candidates stand. However, lost in all of the presidential noise are anglers. What if somebody is ready to base a vote on a candidates stand on fishing? Shouldn’t they at least pay some lip service to give us a credible lean as we go to the polls in November? Is that asking too much?
