Hunters begin boycott over Colorado gun laws

DENVER - Hunters across the country are boycotting Colorado because of recent legislation meant to curtail gun violence.

Michael Bane, a producer for The Outdoor Channel, announced he will no longer film his four shows in Colorado and hunters are joining the protests.

Hunting outfitters say people began cancelling trips after the legislation passed. The numbers are few, but growing and Colorado Parks and Wildlife says the effects of the boycott are already apparent.

Legislation, drawn up in response to the Aurora theater shootings and other massacres, bans magazines that hold more than 15 bullets. Legislation also requires universal background checks, a state fee for background checks, regulation of concealed-carry training and regulations to remove guns from those convicted of domestic abuse.
