Recently, Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation (CSF) President Jeff Crane joined members of the Young Presidents’ Organization in Wyoming as a featured speaker. Surrounded by the pristine and open great outdoors of Jackson Hole, Crane focused on sportsmen’s priorities for wildlife conservation in the new administration.
Items discussed included: developing relationships with the new administration and opportunities to address longstanding priorities for the sportsmen’s conservation community; as well as working closely with the state partners, including fish and wildlife agencies, in order to develop better state-federal partnerships.
Introduced by Charles (A.C.) Smid, a CSF Chairman’s Club Member, Crane also touched on the benefits of supporting CSF’s mission of protecting and advancing hunting, angling, recreational shooting, and trapping as an individual Chairman’s Club Member.
Studies conducted at both the state and federal level have found that the number of hunters and trappers have been on a generally declining trend over the past several decades. To increase recruitment, retention, and reactivation (R3) of hunters and trappers, which initiative do you think would have the greatest impact?
