I hate it that politics has creeped into this listserv! By all means, continue, but if we want to achieve a common goal we are going to have the work together.
Hunters aren't going to stop using lead because it's cheaper and ammunition is expensive. Blame whomever you need to blame for that... I'm sure it's always the "other guy".

In other words, Zinke overturned a ban that was in effect for less than two weeks under Trump and less than a day under Obama. If it was that important (and I believe it was), this should have been done 8 years ago. Sadly, this was done on the last day purely for political purposes...knowing the incoming administration would most likely overturn the order.
