Outdoor Channel Leaves Colorado
« on: May 03, 2013, 06:57:30 PM »
The nitwit law makers in Colorado probably don't care since us hunters kill Bambi, but it will become an issue just like the "no timber cutting, no livestock grazing and no hunting" left wing crowd will love it.

There are so many Mom & Pop stores, vendors, outfitters, restaurants, motels, etc. that will have their livelihood devastated by these actions.  This is a lose/lose situation caused by Colorado's newly arrived voting majority.

It will be no different than what happened with the "no timber cutting, no livestock grazing, no mining, etc" crowd. Colorado will eventually have to import wolves to take care of the excess wildlife and the forests will continue to burn up instead of being managed. It all has a trickle down effect on small towns and communities.

The State probably figures they will make up all lost revenues from hunting, with legalized pot sales.

 Maybe time to put the bongs down.

I guess the Colorado law enforcement boys are having a problem with "driving under the influence" issues with the new pot regs; no one knows how to determine if "recreational" use includes driving stoned. Imagine all those semi drivers smoking pot as they drive down those mountain roads. Unbelievable.

Generally speaking, the "native residents" are not pleased with the direction that their state has taken.

Especially the rural residents, I would guess.  The vast majority of the population is on the Front Range and even then, the densest population is in the counties containing Denver, Boulder and Colorado Springs. Totally opposite ideals making decisions that effect folks in Gunnison or Grand Junction.

Pretty much the same thing happens in New York State. New York City vs the rest of the State.

I lived in Colorado Springs from 1989 until 1993, moved to Atlanta moved back to Pubelo from 1996 until I retired in 2002. There was an influx of high tech companys, Hewlett Packard, Telcoms and Focus On The Family into both Springs and Denver from 1990 forward. Several companys from Virginia moved to Springs. The majority of people who relocated were from California, DC Area and New England. In my opinion, there was a shift in the thinking of the residents as compared to native Colorado people. I lived in a rural area near Pubelo that was 40 - 80 acre lots with a homeowners association developed by a company in MA and marketed heavy in the east. There was constant input into the association of "that is the way we did things in CA, MA, CT, VA and etc". Not what the natives wanted to hear. I think that now the people who moved in may be in the majority on the Front Range. Colorado Springs went from 250,000 population in 1990 to almost 500,000 in 2011.

Seems those that move in from 'elsewhere' want to change things to like they were 'elsewhere'. so now what they moved to in order to enjoy the location will become more like 'elsewhere'.  makes you wish they'd stayed 'elsewhere'.

Then they complain about costs taxes etc.  My blood pressure is going up. >:(

    Yeah, a similar situation happened here in Pa. I lived in a rural farming community that slowly picked up a few developments when the old farmsteads were sold off. With the new influx of residents that moved out from town came cries for streetlights, more police, public water and sewerage, and alot more.
      Fortunately, the older, more conservative residents remain in power and resist the demands for urbanization.

    I feel that if you want to move to the country, you'd better accept the way it is out there. Who in heck wants public water that you have to pay for and is chock full of chemicals? And I also don't mind when farmers spray their fields with manure before plow time.

     If you don't like the way it is in the country, then stay the %#@&*! out :snowball:

Good for them smiley_clapping
That couldn't have been an easy decision... but it was the right one. I will certainly watch for HiViz accessories when I in the market.
Thanks for the update pappy.

I understand why, but personally I hate to see it.  Some hunting related forum members are also urging non-resident hunters to boycott Colorado.  I will not and have stated my position on those forums.

Colorado's "Parks & Wildlife" Division as well as the Outfitters, Wildlife Biologists, Landowners, Restaurant & Motels, etc. all fought but were unsuccessful.  Colorado is a state that relies heavily on these resources to properly manage the game herds as well as maintain the local economies.

The wrong folks are being punished.  The "Front Range" mentality is making the decisions at the expense of the "Western Slope".

(Hopefully we can keep the deep politics out of this thread and it can remain here as general information to everyone.)

Just be careful as to what kind firearms you take into Colorado including ammo and the amount; you could get arrested and put in jail.
