Assemblymember Bill Quirk has introduced AB2787 that will make it impossible to purchase lead fishing weights and sinkers that are approximately 1.75 ounces or less.

Sitka describes the film: Four lifelong friends set out on an archery sheep hunt in the Tendoy Mountains of Montana, and they find themselves in a wild stalk. But the hunt is bigger than them. Repeated pneumonia-related die-offs have led biologists to employ hunters to wipe out the entire herd, in order to restore it. If the program works, if the hunters are successful, it could become the blueprint for wild sheep restoration across North America. TENDOYS - SITKA Gear from SITKA Gear on Vimeo.
