On January 24, the Maryland Legislative Sportsmen’s Foundation, in partnership with the Maryland Legislative Sportsmen’s Caucus, hosted the first Caucus event of the year with a Welcome Luncheon in Annapolis, MD. Over 50 sportsmen-legislators attended the event and were joined by leaders of the Maryland sporting community, including leaders of various sportsmen-based conservation organizations and DNR staff. All who attended had the opportunity to discuss critical sportsmen’s issues and network with other pro-sportsmen attendees.
