do you think for one second he could get it done on his own?
could he go into the adirondaks, or the UP or northern maine and successfully hunt deer on his own, sans guide?
do you think he could go out and set your goose spread and successfully hunt it on his own?
do you honestly think this admin is going to do the woods, the waters, the air, the resource itself or our (as average citizens) access to it a favor? and do you think that little silver spoon donny jr pretending to be a hunter is going to help in those regards?
i have no problem with trophy hunting.....i DO have a problem with guys who pay big $$$ to go sit in a heated box inside a high fence to shoot farm raised animals calling themselves a hunter. It's not the exotics I have a huge issue with, it's the fact that he's full of ****......have you read his posts on the hunting forums he's tried to campaign on the past year? he's full of it just like the old man......the guy who can afford to pay to shoot wherever he wants is somehow going to be good for the little guy hunting public land (that most of the cabinet appointees want to sell off to the highest bidder?).....****
this admin is going to set those who love the outdoors back 20-30 years (if we're that lucky)......
i don't need to go out on a friday night with bill clinton to know he's a horn dog, and i don't need to pretend hunt with donny jr to know he's full of it.......and i don't need any more evidence to know no one is this administration to be gives a **** about my middle class **** or my kids future, no matter how much pandering his "i shop at bass pro and have a glock, too" kid does.....

Washington • President-elect Donald Trump's choice to head the Interior Department, Montana GOP Rep. Ryan Zinke, stood up against his party's efforts to sell off public lands earlier this year, though environmental groups remain concerned about his support of energy development and logging on federal acreage.
Zinke has agreed to accept the post overseeing 500 million acres of public lands in the United States and nearly 2 billion acres of the outer continental shelf. In June, he voted against a bill that would have sold off 2 million federal acres to state ownership, cutting against the grain of many Republicans in the West, including Utah, who have pushed to take control of federal lands, arguing states are better suited to manage their own backyards.
"I'm starting to wonder how many times I have to tell these guys in leadership I'm not going to allow Montana's public lands to be sold or given away," Zinke said at the time of the land-transfer vote. "Two million acres is a lot, even in Montana. That's the Flathead National Forest, poof, gone. Lolo National Forest, gone. We use our land for hunting, fishing, hiking and to create jobs. Our outdoor economy is a billion-dollar economic engine for the state that creates jobs. The federal government needs to do a much better job of managing our resources, but the sale or transfer of our land is an extreme proposal, and I won't tolerate it."
Zinke also supported funding for the Land and Water Conservation Fund, which allows the government to buy up parcels in critical areas. The fund was reauthorized despite the best efforts of Natural Resources Committee Chairman Rob Bishop, R-Utah, to block it.
Sounds like a good pick to me.
