Dismayed by Enviro Policies, Some Anglers and Fishers Turn Against Bush

Put President Bush in waders or camouflage and, what with his cowboy
hat and rugged Western looks, he could easily grace the cover of
Field & Stream. Yet the hunt-and-fish crowd, normally a loyal
constituency of the Republican Party, is increasingly unhappy with
the commander in chief. The president's efforts to roll back
protections for clean water and open wild areas to industrial uses
are drawing fire from hunters and anglers, who rely on protected
areas to enjoy their chosen pastimes. Their displeasure could be a
problem for the prez in '04, given that some 34 million Americans
fish and 13 million hunt. In a startling example of their
discontentment, hundreds of gun clubs recently signed a petition
asking the Bush administration to keep Clinton-era old-growth-forest
protections in place.
