The Governator Reprises His Role as a Villain, Wins Top Honors

By Dave Hurteau & Chad Love

Field & Stream has named California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger the winner of the 2008 Heroes & Villains Face-Off—as a villain.

Playing the rake is not new for Gov. Schwarzenegger, whose first turn as the Terminator saw him working to destroy the world instead of saving it. And the governor’s win will not come as any surprise to fishermen in the Golden State, where funding for salmon and steelhead restoration has been dramatically cut despite sharply declining populations for years. During the governor’s tenure, the chinook salmon fishery in California collapsed, and on May 1, 2008, commercial and recreational salmon fishing were both banned along the West Coast in California and much of Oregon. 

But the governor has not limited his influence to fish and fishermen. He’s also signed a ban on .50 caliber rifles, and on his watch the percentage of licensed hunters in California has dropped below 1%.

Gov. Schwarzenegger beat out fellow villains Pamela Anderson, Paul McCartney, PETA president Ingrid Newkirk, Vladimir Putin, Nancy Giles, Bobby Brown, and Kirt Darner.

Furthermore, Gov. Schwarzenegger proved that villainy can outrank heroism. F&S distinguished Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as a hero—she not only endorsed the traditions of sportsmen while campaigning as a vice presidential candidate, she is an active hunter and fisherman herself. Moreover, Amy Poehler rapped about her shooting a moose on Saturday Night Live. What better way to inspire a new generation of hunters? 

Country music star Miranda Lambert took hero of the year. She is a hunter who relates her love for the sport in her songs, and who donates game meat to Hunters for the Hungry. Other heroes included Boo Weekly, Eliza Dushku, Emma Watson and Tom Felton of Harry Potter fame, and New York senator Charles Schumer. The senator's selection came as a surprise to many gun owners because of his support for gun control over the years. He got the nod for backing a Farm Bill measure to give farmers grants for opening more land to hunters.

To read more about all of the 2008 F&S heroes and villains, see “A Year in Review: The best (and worst) of hunting and fishing” in the Dec. ’08/Jan. ’09 double issue.

Palin as a hero? Frankly that choice is among the weakest advocates for science-based resource management, public access as well as sport fishing and hunting of those whom hold public office in this neck of the woods. Please do not take the populist guns and gays view on this one. If you are a sod-busting fisher and/or hunter or backcountry recreational enthusiast you should do some reading, investigating, before endorsing. ANWR is very small potatoes compared to other items happening up here. p.s. fising through the ice is slowing-down now as we have been at it since about November 5, time for the mid-winter lull so time to switch to lynx and marten trapping.

Schumer, schumers a hero, named in a premier outdoor and hunting advocacy magazine?Are your editors serious? He is one of the most anti-gun Senators and yet you find him to be a hero?Makes about as much sense as your latest article regarding directional oil drilling.Where are your offices NYC, have you even seen an oil well? Stick to what you know and stay out of serious discussions regarding conservation and politics. It is very obvious you have reached your level of incompetence and are way over your collective heads in these arenas.Perhaps you could do an article on the horrendous impact the North slope pipeline had in Alaska. The one that goes from the North slope to Craig. The pipeline that was going to devastate the Caribou in Alaska.Why don't your "journalists" do some research and tell us the real impact of this project? Then you can lecture foolish gun owners on whom our heroes should be and what conservation stances we should be taking.Fools...

Hunting,fishing,camping,hiking are all great sports. When you eat a steak,cattle have to be killed and just because you didn't do the killing doesn't make you any more righteous than if you went out and shot one yourself. There are too many extremists out there like the sierra club morons. Next, they will be thinking of a "green way" to cut your toenails. I've read where they are being taken over by vegetarians, and people who are pushing an agenda against hunting, fishing,etc.

Fear maybe?Sounds to me like you Democrats are 'sore winners' in fear of a conservative turnaround after a couple of years of Obamamania wears thin.I think Palin was a flash in the pan and will be out of the vocabulary soon enough. Critics will only keep her in the news. Think about it...I recommend you liberals stick to issues or you will end up like the Republicans --- losers.

Schumer. A hero. He wants to ban ALL the guns, people."We're here to tell the NRA their nightmare is true! ... We're going to hammer guns on the anvil of relentless legislative strategy. We're going to beat guns into submission!"-- Rep. Charles Schumer on NBC Nightly News Nov. 30, 1993.Also (taken from the Michael Bane blog)Schumer testified before an April 5, 1995 Judiciary Committee hearing on the meaning of the Second Amendment.Schumer sputtered: “There is no constitutional question here… If anyone tried to sell the baloney we’ll hear today, they would be arrested for consumer fraud. The NRA’s Second Amendment is an empty cereal box in the marketplace of ideas…”Further, Schumer said the belief that the Second Amendment was an individual right “is poisoning our political dialogue… The sickening fruit of this poisonous lie are obvious in our society…. Like flat earth fanatics, Second Amendment fanatics just don’t get it… It does not guarantee the mythical individual right to bear arms…”There's your hero. Do you understand?

Shame on you Field & Stream. Sarah Palin is no friend of Field & Stream readers, as I have been since 1965. I am an Alaska resident and I know Sarah Palin.Gov. Palin came out against Alaska ballot measure 4, a clean water initiative. It is illegal for the governor to take sides on a ballot initiative, but she did anyway. Measure 4 was aimed at stopping the huge Pebble mine project, which scientists believe has a very high probability of polluting the watershed that drains into the largest salmon producing river system in the world, Bristol Bay.  Palin's illegal stand against ballot measure 4, and the millions of dollars of misleading advertising by the two foreign mining companies behind the Pebble, who have a terrible track record of pollution, helped the initiative fail in the recent election. The Pebble mine, if allowed to proceed, will likely become Alaska's worst environmental disaster. Even the Juneau Empire (owned by a conservative Georgia newspaper chain) came out in favor of ballot measure 4. Ballot measure 4 was an attempt to bring back the clean water regulations that were weakened by Palin's predecessor, former Republican governor Frank Murkowski.At the web site below, play the video on the left side of the page that reads “Governor opposes Ballot Measure 4”Read more about the proposed Pebble mine in Fish Alaska magazine, a sport fishing magazine put out by Alaskans (it's long, but please read the whole article)Isn't it just amazing that Governor Palin would side with these notorious foreign mining companies, when scientists believe that the Pebble mine will pollute the famous salmon rivers that run into Bristol Bay? Yes, Bristol Bay, the inspiration for the name Bristol Palin.Palin’s radical fundamentalist Christian beliefs makes one wonder if she doesn’t share James Watt’s environmental philosophy. James Watt: “My responsibility is to follow the Scriptures which call upon us to occupy the land until Jesus returns. We don't have to protect the environment, the Second Coming is at hand.” (James Watt, Secretary of the Interior for Ronald Reagan, Quoted in the Washington Post, May 24, 1981)

The area of ANWR is permafrost. Nothing lives there. Nothing would be harmed by the drilling, and it would produce oil we need. Sure we need to develop alternative energies, but as it sits we need oil to get there. The area for drilling is about the size of a large shopping mall, in an area of thousands of square miles. It's NOT going to hurt. Palin/Jindal 2012!

I see your blog has its share of "Liberal"/eco commie trolls as do most other sites. I'm no fan of Palin, not until she proves to me she's serious about curing our nation of this terminal cancer called "Liberal"ism. But if she really wants to drill for more oil that's at least one point in her favor.Hunters have been snookered by the self-proclaimed environmentalists who are mostly communists and are just using environmental issues, real and imagined, to destroy our Liberty and control every aspect of our lives all while enriching the worlds elites, such as algore.

Back to ANWR? The proportion of the area affected by drilling vs. the whole area of the ANWR, issues of the sensitivities of which areas, highlights the hype vs. fact.One fact is that Schumer has been one of the most anti-gun senators NY has produced (and that takes a bit of doing!).

Like flat earth fanatics, Second Amendment fanatics just don’t get it… It does not guarantee the mythical individual right to bear arms…”There's your hero. Do you understand?

Hey you people want to bitch aboutSarah Palin wanting to drill in the ANWR,Go check out Gull Island AK.All the oil and gas that is there and was drilled and tested, and than covered up by Bush and his buddies. So we could keep buying Arab oil and line the pockets of who knows who.How about all you dummies that believed BHO and voted for him,what now?

Shame on you Field & Stream. Sarah Palin is no friend of Field & Stream readers, as I have been since 1965. I am an Alaska resident and I know Sarah Palin.Gov. Palin came out against Alaska ballot measure 4, a clean water initiative. It is illegal for the governor to take sides on a ballot initiative, but she did anyway. Measure 4 was aimed at stopping the huge Pebble mine project, which scientists believe has a very high probability of polluting the watershed that drains into the largest salmon producing river system in the world, Bristol Bay.  Palin's illegal stand against ballot measure 4, and the millions of dollars of misleading advertising by the two foreign mining companies behind the Pebble, who have a terrible track record of pollution, helped the initiative fail in the recent election. The Pebble mine, if allowed to proceed, will likely become Alaska's worst environmental disaster. Even the Juneau Empire (owned by a conservative Georgia newspaper chain) came out in favor of ballot measure 4. Ballot measure 4 was an attempt to bring back the clean water regulations that were weakened by Palin's predecessor, former Republican governor Frank Murkowski.At the web site below, play the video on the left side of the page that reads “Governor opposes Ballot Measure 4”Read more about the proposed Pebble mine in Fish Alaska magazine, a sport fishing magazine put out by Alaskans (it's long, but please read the whole article)Isn't it just amazing that Governor Palin would side with these notorious foreign mining companies, when scientists believe that the Pebble mine will pollute the famous salmon rivers that run into Bristol Bay? Yes, Bristol Bay, the inspiration for the name Bristol Palin.Palin’s radical fundamentalist Christian beliefs makes one wonder if she doesn’t share James Watt’s environmental philosophy. James Watt: “My responsibility is to follow the Scriptures which call upon us to occupy the land until Jesus returns. We don't have to protect the environment, the Second Coming is at hand.” (James Watt, Secretary of the Interior for Ronald Reagan, Quoted in the Washington Post, May 24, 1981)

I think it has to be a misprint: other VILLAINS include schumer. That pissant little twerp on 9/12/01 saying "this shows we need more gun control" earned him a place on a gallows as far as I am concerned. Where in hell is there a connection between 19 foreigners with knives murdering 3,000 Americans, and needing to treasonously disarm Americans?

Hey, didn't Charles Schumer vote for Ted Kennedy's amendment that would've banned that "dangerous" .30-30 rifle ammunition?I can totally see how that would make somebody a hero. Voting to ban popular rifle hunting rounds.

Is there some other Chuck Schumer? Are we celebrating Chuck's desire to eliminate citizen's owning firearms since it'll make bow hunting more popular? Will F&S come up with secret videotape of Chuck shooting with Ted Nugent?I bet the various Cerberus companies are going to get some e-mail over this one

How in the world did Kevin Costner get on the "hero" list? The man exposed himself to a massuese, held her wrist so she could not escaped, and had a happy ending at her expense. When she complained, she was fired! Costner is self serving in all acts he commits. The breast cancer premiere was to promote his film!! This man is not a hero by any standards.

Chuck Schumer. A HERO?!?!?!? Gimme some'a them drugs!Ahnuld is a RINO of the first order. But I suppose he's a Republican in Kahlifohnia. Bah!Sarah Palin, now THERE'S a hero! The area of ANWR is permafrost. Nothing lives there. Nothing would be harmed by the drilling, and it would produce oil we need. Sure we need to develop alternative energies, but as it sits we need oil to get there. The area for drilling is about the size of a large shopping mall, in an area of thousands of square miles. It's NOT going to hurt. Palin/Jindal 2012!

I see your blog has its share of "Liberal"/eco commie trolls as do most other sites. I'm no fan of Palin, not until she proves to me she's serious about curing our nation of this terminal cancer called "Liberal"ism. But if she really wants to drill for more oil that's at least one point in her favor.Hunters have been snookered by the self-proclaimed environmentalists who are mostly communists and are just using environmental issues, real and imagined, to destroy our Liberty and control every aspect of our lives all while enriching the worlds elites, such as algore. Funny how that works.These are serious times folks.Don't understand? Start with my quotes page:http://willowtown.com/promo/quotes.htmThen follow my other links, then share.

What about making Chuckie and anti-hero? That would be more like it. He never met a gun control bill he didn't love.Now, Ted Nugent is a HERO, hunting with ALL kinds of hunting gear including bow and arrow and AR-15's.

Back to ANWR? The proportion of the area affected by drilling vs. the whole area of the ANWR, issues of the sensitivities of which areas, highlights the hype vs. fact.One fact is that Schumer has been one of the most anti-gun senators NY has produced (and that takes a bit of doing!). And that isn't hype.

Upchuck Schumer is a "hero"? He is one of the most virulently anti-gun politicians in the history of the United States Congress. Who ever dubbed him a hero must be either extremely gullible or smoking crack. Possibly both.

Sarah Palin is not a hero, although she is a hunter her incredible urge to drill into the ANWR and other wildlife areas should not be an accepeted stance among hunters.

Nate, I'm pretty there's a whole story on conservation heroes who aren't celebs every year... I'm just surprised that California's gov doesn't care more about the salmon--big and strong like him with very small brains--seems he'd empathize with their plight.
