Posted Image Argentina Changes Process for Travelling With Firearms
SCI has learned that effective 1-1-08, the consulate for Argentina now requires fingerprints before travelling to Argentina with a firearm. This means that if you are an American citizen and you are scheduled to hunt in Argentina, you will have to show up in person at one of the 7 consulates throughout the United States and submit your paperwork and fingerprints at that time. The consulates are in New York, Atlanta, Chicago, L.A., Houston, Miami and D.C. If you live too far away from one of these cities and cannot make it in to give fingerprints, your firearm will not be allowed. We will keep you posted.

"The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) and the Association of Veterinarians for Animal Rights (AVAR) announced that their respective boards of directors have approved a corporate combination agreement which will result in a powerful new veterinary advocacy organization, the Humane Society Veterinary Medical Association (HSVMA). HSVMA will give veterinarians, veterinary students and veterinary technicians an opportunity to participate in animal welfare programs, including disaster response; expanded hands-on animal care; spaying and neutering; and advocacy for legislative, corporate and veterinary medical school reforms."

Posted Image Safari Club Boosts Hunting Heritage Funds by $250,000
"Safari Club International Foundation has announced that it will contribute $250,000 to the Hunting Heritage Partnership (HHP), a program of the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF). The donation increases annual grant money available by 50 percent, from $500,000 to $750,000 to address critical issues affecting the future of hunting. HHP awards annual grants to individual states for effective, new projects aimed at the successful recruitment and retention of hunters. States and local grassroots partners provide funds and/or in-kind services to match the critically needed HHP funds. To date the HHP has awarded more than $2.1 million to state agencies, with positive and tangible results for hunters and conservation. To learn more about HHP and its impact, visit www.nssf.org/hhp."

Argentia is getting weird. I don't have plans to go there soon and now maybe never but if I did I'd be very upset. Say if you already paid a large down payment to hunt there I'd be very hard pressed to show up at one of the consulates mentioned to get the okay to go. :(

Me too I have not killed everything around here (yet) and am not entertaining thoughts to go off shore to decimate other wildlife populations there are those that do. Sure hope they do not live anywhere around here because it would necessatate a trip to NYC which in my estimation is a foreign country or DC another equally foreign entity.
