Outdoor companies, whose side are they on?

Back in December of 2013 I did a little write-up about an experience I had here in Knoxville at a local outdoor store where somebody got offended that I mentioned using a name brand outdoor line as a supplement to my hunting gear.  Below is the link:

While perusing a hunting forum that I check out from time-to-time I came across a little study that somebody did on an issue very similar to this.  I found it interesting, although not entirely shocking for some of the responses.  Below is the link to another blog post where the author wrote an email to various outdoor companies and requested they provide their stance on hunting.  Give it a look, I think you will find it interesting...

I am proud to say that I have lots of Big Agnes gear, and this just helps enforce my opinion of them going forward.  Also, I must say that I was a little bothered by Under Armour's response considering they have such an extensive line of hunting clothing and gear.
