On Wednesday, March 27, the New Hampshire Legislative Sportsmen’s Caucus hosted their first Caucus event of the year, with a luncheon at the Upham Walker House in Concord, New Hampshire. At the event, Senators Russell Prescott and Jeff Woodburn accepted leadership positions in the Caucus and will now serve as the Senate Co-Chairs alongside the House Co-Chairs, Representatives Jeffrey Goley and Gene Chandler. Additionally, another 19 legislators joined the Caucus at this event, increasing the Caucus membership to its highest level in New Hampshire Caucus history.
Legislators gathered together to discuss the New Hampshire Caucus and the Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation’s (CSF) recently released Sportsmen’s Economic Impact Report for New Hampshire. Joining the Caucus members were representatives from the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department and other supporters of sportsmen’s issues in New Hampshire. CSF would like to especially thank Comcast and Reynolds American Inc. for their sponsorship of the event.
