Last weekend, Magorn posted an excellent diary about Scott Walker having appointed a "deer Czar", who appears to believe that it's his mission to do away with hunting on public lands in favor of paying private landowners to hunt. As he points out, this may be a way to drive home to many Walker supporters that they're voting against their own self-interest.

So I went ahead and threw together a quick website - saveWIdeerhunting.info - summarizing what's going on. I'm noticing that when I'm on Facebook lately, I often get "keep Wisconsin red" advertisements. This weekend I think I'll see if I can find a few bucks and direct people in WI with an interest in hunting to this site. (Note: I put the site up on Tuesday night; I'm delaying this diary until Wednesday morning so the DNS changes have time to propagate, but it's still possible that you might not be able to see it yet; if that happens, try back later)

Suggestions (on both the site and the facebook advertisements) welcomed!

Edit: several people have asked about donating to the Facebook effort. I'm working with a few other users to get the campaign planned out, and then we'll ask for financial help; keep your eyes open for another diary coming soon. We're in the process of filling out the legal forms and will be asking for money on Friday. We'll probably need between $250 and $1000 for the Facebook campaign; I'm looking into the cost effectiveness for Google Adwords as well.

7:24 PM PT: Update: I've rewritten the page a bit to be more neutral, in the hopes of encouraging people to read it and draw their own conclusions rather than dismissing it as anti-Walker propaganda.

2laneIA and Slinkerwink are helping research the legal requirements for political advertising so we don't accidentally run afoul of any regulations; once that's done then we'll start actually spending money.

Update: you can now donate here.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
