FieldNotes, the blog for Field & Stream magazine (!), summarizes the results of a recent poll of the hook and bullet crowd.

Note that this was not a poll of liberal-leaning sportsmen; 73 percent of respondents consider themselves conservative to moderate on political issues. The survey was conducted by the research firm Responsive Management, whose client list includes numerous fish and game agencies and the National Shooting Sports Foundation (click here for a description of the methodology).

This can’t be happy news in Rove-land.
