The Mystic Casino thread was kind of interesting. Some are quick to express frustration with tribal owned casinos, but are they still visiting these places? This is a site for sportsmen. Sportsmen are supposed support efforts to better our resources. I have never seen anything good from supporting anything tribal owned. Red Lake didn't crash because tribal people did due diligence with their netting. Mille Lacs isn't in trouble because tribal people are thoughtful or helpful with respecting the resource. There aren't countless videos showing licensed anglers wasting fish, leaving piles of unwanted species in the trees, throwing dead fish back in the lake, etc. If you're here on this site and feel you are a sportsman, then supporting a tribal owned property should be against your beliefs. If you are against people getting hurt by drunk driving you don't go out and drive drunk. If you don't believe in people having a free ride, you don't support groups that don't pay taxes. Tribal businesses don't pay taxes. No taxes means no extra money for our environment. This is just my opinion, but if you're truly a sportsman, boycotting tribal businesses should be something you all practice.

Not saying I disagree with you but I can't stand when people tell me "how I should think" or "If you are a sportsmen you should think this way"

I form my own opinions on issues and don't feel the need to shove them down others' throats.

Thanks.

Real Sportsman threads have the very same affect as Real Man threads.

I like the tribal casinos.They dont tax my tobacco purchases to pay for the Vikings crooked rich owners fancy new football stadium.Maybe they use the tobacco money to buy more nets for Mille Lacs or Red?Either way the fish they do take is a drop in the bucket compared to the state anglers take.State anglers may or may not toss fish in the trees I couldnt say forsure.However they do yank fish out of 30+feet of water and then throw them back to float around.Many state anglers toss their trash and human waste bags on the ice for the lakeshore owners to clean up.I think I may swing by the casino tonite.

The whole, "in order to be x, you have to boycott y" argument isn't too persuasive. You can be a real sportsman by learning, experiencing and making your own determinations as to what you believe in and what you do not.

I've seen plenty of non-natives leave trash, poop bags, fish, etc on/in the lakes. That's not just a native thing.

I agree with you completely about some of the licensed fishermen being slobs. There are far to many of them. Unfortunately doing anything but trying to educate these people is the only chance to fix that problem. If enough people decide to quit visiting tribal properties, eventually it can make a difference. It's just one way I can see where sportsmen can unite. We need to unite on one project at a time to actually make a difference. This is just my opinion. I feel strongly about it and thought it was a direction to go.

Remember that honor badge about Minnesota nice? Remember the last election where 9 out of 87 counties decided the outcome of all of our electoral votes? When enough people finally get tired political correctness and sick of the snowflakes using our money for programs that only benefit those that don't contribute, then you might see our state finally do something that makes sense. State run casinos could help drastically reduce some of our tax needs.
