The state of Washington is about to get rid of hunting, with groups claiming that hunting is not needed to manage wildlife.

Ultimately, hunters aren’t really necessary to manage wildlife, says Kevin Bixby. Executive director of Wildlife For All, Bixby says predators should be considered the primary wildlife management tool by agencies, which should adopt values consistent with the animal-rights movement.

“If we want to save our own species, then we have to adopt an attitude of coexistence with all the other species,” says Bixby. “And we can’t do that if human needs are placed above other lifeforms. That is the bottom line. Some people will never agree to that.”

So if a few kids get eaten by wolves, that is part of coexisting with all lifeforms.

OK, they lose out on hunting license revenue. And people keep hunting, getting better at avoiding The Man.

Then hunters realize The Man is slower, easier to track and much easier to kill than ungulates and ursa spp.

Or not. Probably not. Methed-out beaners don’t fight The Man.

Yup. It’s just about time to get the hell out of here.
Bought my house ~13 years ago, paid the loan down like crazy, and it should be paid off in 5 months. Similar houses around me are selling for $500,000 which is about 4 times what I paid for it.

But where to go…? Florida, Texas, and Arizona are regularly too hot/muggy. Montana is nice and cold, but leans fairly liberal. Idaho is everyone’s favorite destination, so it appears to be getting a bit too crowded. Maybe Alaska? I’ll probably die during the first winter.

    As the communists drag out of your home to be executed, you can always console yourself with the fact that the weather is nice and cool.

      LMAO! True. But I doubt they’ll drag me out. At least not alive.

      The more I think about things, it’s the same issue I have with voting. There is *no place* in the United States that I *want* to move to. There are just a bunch of slightly less shitty places. It “voting for the lesser of two evils” all over again. Except this time there are 50 “evil” (non-free) places, and I have to choose the one that is slightly more free than others. Hmm… Of course I could just stay behind enemy lines and do what I can to make like difficult for them.

    texas will be purple/blue in less then 10 years…maybe this is a new tactic to ban guns…since you can’t hunt anymore no reason to have those guns…

    There was a time I’d have said Maine or New Hampshire were good choices, but the last few elections have been a lot farther left than they used to be. Too many transplants from New York & Massachusetts brought their politics and their Tammany Hall & Boston style corruption.

      Maybe the best approach is not to find a better government (state), but to find greater insulation from government. Even in Ca there are places where “the mountain is high, and the emperor is far away”, and the locals have a long culture ignoring unpopular laws. Think deep rural, steep and poorly maintained roads, and *lots” of choke points, with multiple overwatchs.

    I’m considering alternatives also.
    Don’t forget that Texas includes the panhandle, which is cooler than down south and has real winter’s.
    Other options include Nebraska and Oklahoma, which both also straddle the dry line giving varied climate options.
    Arkansas is another, though more humid on average.
    All of those have little known but strong conservative tendencies compared to the attention Idaho and Montana get (and which, in my opinion they don’t deserve).

It’s not going to be “a few kids eaten by wolves”.
First the predator population blooms, then they devastate the prey, and then the entire ecosystem collapses.

Hunters balance that equation, as has been known and shown for over a hundred years, and by extrapolation, back to when hunting consisted of spears and flint arrows.

And when cougars and wolves are starving, because they’ve over-eaten the prey, two-legged chicken will be back on their menu with a vengeance.

Hunters need to start doing the same thing, now, starting with some strategic selections.
Seattle has outlived its utility, much like Portland, Frisco, and L.A.
The denouement approacheth, right quick.
