New Hampshire Legislative Sportsmen’s Caucus Luncheon

On February 10, the bipartisan New Hampshire Legislative Sportsmen’s Caucus held its annual “Sportsmen’s Caucus Luncheon” in Concord, New Hampshire. In recent years, the New Hampshire Caucus has developed into an active and effective champion for sportsmen’s issues at the State Capitol in Concord, and has tripled in size to over 65 members in the House and Senate.

At the Luncheon, Caucus members met to discuss a wide range of issues concerning New Hampshire’s sportsmen and women, including HB 500, a bill sponsored by Caucus member Representative Burt, authorizing the use of suppressed firearms for hunting. HB 500 has cleared the House and is now awaiting action in the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources.

CSF would like to thank the sponsors of the luncheon, the American Suppressor Association, the National Shooting Sports Foundation, and Reynolds American, Inc.

Over $270 million is infused into New Hampshire’s economy each year as a direct result of hunting and angling. Further, New Hampshire’s sportsmen and women contributed over $17.3 million to conservation in 2015 alone.

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?
