Last month's "Conservation Force" supplement to The Hunting Report by John J. Jackson, III contains what I think is an extremely important call to action. It's in the DATELINE: NEW MEXICO report, which describes the move by New Mexico's Attorney General to set aside Terk v. Gordon. That was the Federal case that held it unconstitutional for states to have a license-allocation system that discriminates against non-residents. Many of you will remember my comments in the past about the raw deal that non-residents are getting in many states' permit-drawing systems. Well, that deal will almost certainly get a lot rawer if Terk v. Gordon is overturned. My sensitivity to this issue is heightened this time of year, as perhaps yours is too, by receiving a drawer-full of hunt rejections from various Western states. Looking at them all I could just scream, as many of the drawings were heavily biased against me and other non-residents. I won't go into detail here about all the issues involved, but let me just reiterate the fact that much of the hunting in the West takes place on public land - land (and the big game on it) that we should all have equal access to and be able to enjoy. I strongly urge you to get behind Jackson's effort to stop the Attorney General of New Mexico in his tracks. Send your tax-deductible contribution to Conservation Force, and designate it for the "Non-Resident Discrimination Case.".
