On Tuesday, June 11, the Executive Council (EC) of the National Assembly of Sportsmen’s Caucuses (NASC) held their Midyear Meeting at Sunriver Resort in Bend, Oregon to discuss legislative priorities, recent successes, and ways to enrich the NASC network in the months and years to come.
The NASC EC is a group of state sportsmen’s caucus leaders who are dedicated to advancing the goals of the program. Elected by their sportsman-legislator colleagues to serve two year terms as the face of NASC, EC members assist with policy development, sportsmen’s community engagement, program administration and media outreach intended to highlight the role that hunting, recreational fishing and shooting and trapping play in supporting conservation policies that benefit our nation’s social and economic wellbeing.

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?
