Hunt. Fish. Feed. Event Coming To St. Paul

Do you still have some excess venison in the freezer you might be willing to donate? The Sportsman Channel’s Hunt. Fish. Feed. project is coming to St. Paul this Sunday and they could use some additional sportsman-donated venison to help feed those in need.

This successful event was first launched in Las Vegas, NV last month (during the SHOT Show) and will be hosted in several additional cities throughout the U.S. during the upcoming year. The effort showcases sportsmen providing food for and feeding those less fortunate in each respective city.

The Twin Cities event is special because it’s being held in conjunction with FISHAPALOOZA—the region’s largest ice fishing contest. During that event on Saturday in Forest Lake, participants will be given the chance to donate their catch to the feed-the-hungry event taking place the next day.Huntfishfeed

“This is a unique opportunity for us to connect anglers with our Hunt.Fish.Feed efforts to serve fish alongside our venison dishes,” said Todd Hansen, Sr. Vice President of Sportsman Channel. “A special thanks to our partners, Comcast, Sportsmen Against Hunger and FISHAPALOOZA for helping us accomplish this goal and bring awareness to sportsmen’s efforts to help those in need.”

If you have extra venison to share, please consider helping out this worthwhile cause by donating it for this event or to your local food shelf.

I plan on being there this Sunday to volunteer and to meet many other sportsmen giving generously of their time and their harvested game/fish resources. This is a great community service project reflecting both a positive image on all hunters and fishermen while at the same time showing how a charitable component truly exists within our outdoor sports.

Federal Racketeering Lawsuit Stuns HSUS

You may have missed our New Year’s Eve exposé covering the dismissal of a federal lawsuit pushed by a consortium of animal rights groups that included the deceptive Humane Society of the United States (HSUS). The groups alleged that Feld Entertainment (the parent company of the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus) mistreated elephants in violation of the Endangered Species Act, but in December a judge tossed out the lawsuit. Now the plot thickens: The circus is suing HSUS, two HSUS lawyers, and a number of other animal rights organizations under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act. (The lawsuit is exclusively available at


The RICO Act is exactly the sort of legal measure that should finally bring this corrupt "animal rights" group down. It's high time the Humane Society of the United States is put out of business once and for all.
