CSF launched the Ambassador Program in January 2018 in order to expand the organization’s network to prominent members from across the sportsmen’s community who are united to advocate publicly for the protection and defense of our shared passion for hunting and fishing.
CSF Ambassadors complement the efforts of the organization by promoting pro-sportsmen policies to their audiences. They are critical to furthering the conversation about why it is important to work with policy makers in Washington, DC, and across the country in order to ensure our ability to hunt and fish and enjoy the outdoors in the future.
CSF Ambassadors include:
Lucas Hoge grew up in Hubbell, NE, and began playing the guitar and drums at a very young age. He went on to play in three different bands before moving to Nashville. On July 28, 2017 he released his album Dirty South, which topped the chart hitting No. 1 on Billboard Country Album Sales Chart and No. 5 Billboards TOP Country Albums. Lucas has traveled overseas to perform for our troops for the past nine years and was just named to Rolling Stone “Top 10 Artists You Need To Know,” and NRA Country featured him as their artist for July 2017.
