I have a lot of relatives in Montana. They are not to happy with those movie stars, and none of the people there I have talked to are either. My Dad was at a restaurant when Jane Fonda came in with Ted Turner. I laugh pretty hard every time he tells that story. Just because you have a movie star with a ton of money does not mean they are going to have a lot of influence. Particularly after they saw what the out of state people did to my home state of Colorado. And that wasn't all movie stars. Lots of people from California, and Texas, New York, New Jersey.....If they are going to show up and wreck the place, there isn't a whole lot you can do about it.

Unless Sportsman (in general) from Utah don't start to open their wallets and help fund the fight it may never happen. Steve Schmidt (owner of Western Rivers) told all of us @ The FT3 show that up to this point only $4000.00 has been donated to the fight.

Thank goodness the Attorneys working with USAC (Utah Stream Access Coalition) are working Pro-Bono!!

I am going to go fish The Mitchell Slough aka Huey Lewis Slough this weekend. I've lived so close and stayed away for far too long. Hell, maybe I'll get to say Hi to Huey!

Correct on all points. The thing that 'scares me' about this thing is even to get to the Senate, it already had passed in the House.

I was watching part of the hearing on TV.

One of the chairman was asking very logical questions - the (idiot) sponsor really couldn't answer or defend. It seemed pretty obvious, they could n't let it go forward. I'm amazed it got as far as it did. I think the sponsor represents Dillon? I can't not believe this will go well for him over there

Next elections - I just need to remember those that voted for it...

Gather the turn out (public) was so large they had to move the 'meeting' into the old Montana Supreme Court's room. SRO and people standing out in the hall (350 some actually signed the meeting register).

The "Wise Use" movement isn't being driven by movie stars and Californians. It's being driven by landowners who want to make a buck off the trout fishermen. This kind of thing has been going on all over the West for at least thirty years. That was long before Montana was deemed the "last best place".

If you want to read up on the "Wise Use" crowd the information is on the net. You want to blame scapegoats and you'll lose.

But like the witch her feet are still hanging out from under the building as our reminder of what could have happened. I might hang some striped socks in the slough to do the same. j/k
