Accordingly, these groups produced the American System of Conservation Funding, a unique “user pays, public benefits” approach. This funding strategy has produced numerous public benefits, including abundant fish and wildlife populations, access to public lands and clean waters, improved fish and wildlife habitat, carbon sequestration, wetland protection and its associated water filtration and flood retention functions, improved soil and water conservation, shooting ranges, and boating access facilities that are available for the enjoyment of the entirety of the American public — hunters and non-hunters alike.
The Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation is proud to stand with Safari Club International members coming to Congress this week to protect hunting and recreational fishing and shooting as a national heritage and look forward to the Senate taking up H.R. 4089 and passing a robust “pro-sportsmen’s package.” We will continue to be a voice and an advocate on Capitol Hill for hunters, anglers and recreational shooters across our great nation.
Jeff Crane is president of the Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation.
