North Carolina Legislative Sportsmen’s Caucus Highlights Issues for the Upcoming Year

On May 27 and 28, the North Carolina Legislative Sportsmen’s Caucus hosted two events in the capitol city of Raleigh to highlight the Sportsmen’s Caucus and pertinent issues for the upcoming year.

On Tuesday, May 27 the Caucus hosted a legislative reception at the Hawkins-Hartness House in downtown Raleigh. The informal, social event was sponsored by Land for Tomorrow and provided a time for sportsmen-legislators and various stakeholders to gather together in support of North Carolina’s rich hunting and angling heritage.  Caucus Co-Chairs Representative Tim Moffitt and Senator Buck Newton were both in attendance, as were representatives from the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission, the Department of Environment and Natural Resources, North Carolina Wildlife Federation, Safari Club International, Coastal Conservation Association, Trout Unlimited, and others. Lieutenant Governor Dan Forest, Secretary of Administration Bill Daughtridge, Secretary of Environmental and Natural Resources John Skvarla, and nearly 30 additional members of the General Assembly also attended.  The following morning, the Caucus hosted a legislative breakfast at the Legislative Building sponsored by the American Kennel Club. 

The North Carolina Legislative Sportsmen’s Caucus is a bipartisan and bicameral caucus of North Carolina legislators united to protect and advance the outdoor traditions of hunting, angling, recreational shooting and trapping.

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?
