Ep 7: Robert Borsak – how do you eat an elephant

Trophy hunting elephants

How do you eat an elephant? According to SFFP Member of Parliament, Robert Borsak, it really is one bite at a time. It’s the same way Robert Borsak takes on the big fish in Australian politics, too – one bite at a time.

Robert Borsak has represented the Shooters Fishers and Farmers Party (SFFP) as a member in the NSW Legislative Council since 2010, and is also the leader of the party.

During his time in parliament, he’s fought off attempts to restrict recreational fishing and hunting, defended the rights of law-abiding firearms owners, introduced a bill to protect farmers from the vicious attacks by animal rights activists, fought for improvements to water rights for farmers and landowners, and lobbied to support the greyhound racing industry.

As the name suggests, the SFFP represent the interests of outdoor enthusiasts and farmers in parliament. In fact, Robert Borsak feels they are one of the only parties in Australia fighting for Australian’s rights and freedoms when so many others are doing the exact opposite and describes the party as ‘biased for the bush’!

Rod and Tash had the privilege of recording a podcast with Robert Borsak while he was visiting with members of the Shooters, Fishers and Farmers Party in Tasmania.

So what did we chat to Robert about? 

– Trophy hunting and the current anti-trophy hunting movement

– Hunting and do people really eat elephant

– Why eating cats and dogs is a cultural thing

– Why farmers are important to the Shooters, Fishers and Farmers Party

– Falling off a mountain while hunting in NZ

We encourage all hunters and outdoor enthusiasts to join Shooters, Fishers and Farmers Party as a member, donate to them, and Vote 1 for them in state and federal elections. It’s one of the only ways we will get representation in parliament.

Here’s an article if you want some other ideas on how to fight against the negativity towards hunters.
