I agree with Dan about shelving the political potential of the etree for now. However, the tree does need to be continualy expanded and organized, specificaly for the 2005 session, and beyond. Communication and knowledge will carry the cause forward, and that has been the sportsmens weakness in the past. Bird hunters understand the problem very well, big game folks and fishermen are complacent and need to be drawn into the loop.
Perhaps in the future the tree can be divided by legislative districts, and strenghtened in those where it has fewer subscribers. It takes time. And of course a friendly politican always helps the cause.
There was talk last summer of one state-wide organization for sportsmen that would carry the ball in the legislature, similar to what the boys in South Dakota did. That did not happen. But if we can communicate in advance through the etree, we have painlessly solved some of the problem. A round of cheers for you fellows who worked so hard to get it up and going. And like Fetch says, spread the word about this site and the etree too.
