Default "Time for outdoor retailers to leave Utah in disgust"

Just thought I'd post this here. The outdoor industry is beginning to push back on Utah, the hunting and angling industry needs to start doing the same.

I suggest nobody buy any OTC General Bull (rifle or archery) tag this year. Plenty of other states to hunt and you have better quality and/or you can shoot more than a spike.

You can also just totally boycott the state of Utah's draw system along with anything else that has to do with the outdoors. Need a boat? Go to Idaho or Colorado to buy it, but then where are you going to use it at if you are boycotting the Utah outdoors?

Every outdoor and outdoor sporting goods dealer could move every brick and motar store that they have in Utah outside of it and make just as much money off of mail order and perhaps more. Fewer employees, no building to take care of, no property taxes to deal with.

The only people that they are going to hurt are the people that buy items from their stores when they walk into them. Just think, no more running over to Cabela's to pick up that new rifle that you want. Need some fishing gear, pull up Bass Pro on the computer and see what you want then wait a week for it to get to your home.

Some of these ideas that people come up with are about as dumb as they are.

You're childish behavior surfaces again. It's really quite laughable. They want to further lower the GSL, transfer and sell public lands, sell public wildlife to the highest bidder, sell their DWR to a nonprofit, and try to lock you out of public waters. Yet there's still sportsmen such as yourself who apparently believe you aren't being screwed over by the politicians in this state and vote again and again to reinforce the screwing you're getting.

This is more about pulling 2 trade show that benefits Utah with $50 million in direct spending. Also, retail is on its slow way to death, I do 90% of my shopping online as it is already.

FWIW, based on the responses on this thread, I'm not sure that anyone responding (even 1 eye) realizes that the op-ed piece is only talking about moving the Outdoor Retailers Convention and not a boycott of anything.

Also, loss of this large Convention would indeed represent a genuine hit to Salt lake's economy, so the action would not be dumb at all if the Outdoor Retailers as a group wanted to take a substantive stand against the policies the State of Utah is pursuing. It is an easy argument that this industry has a vested interest in keeping public lands public.


Carry on.

I realized it Catheder I mentioned it in my last post. Thing is they could move to a state next door and take their economic impact with them and may even do better in a state like Colorado.
