Spokane Sportsmen Form Backcountry Advocacy Group

Rich Landers details a pair of Spokane sportsmen who’ve formed the Washington chapter of Backcountry Hunters and Anglers, a group that establishes — in the Spokesman-Review reporter’s words — “a sportsman’s voice for protecting roadless areas and the traditions they uphold.”

Joe Mirasole and Jeff Holmes say they’re nonpartisan, don’t care what religious views you hold, don’t discriminate between fly guys and bait soakers and have no position on the wolves.

“Those are all distractions from the fundamentals of protecting roadless areas for wildlife and for our kids,” Mirasole tells Landers.

Imagine that in this overly politicized era.
