Recently, states like Oklahoma and Nebraska have seen legislation that would limit their state wildlife management agencies’ ability to acquire additional lands for public access opportunities. As a hunter and/or angler, how important are public access opportunities to your enjoyment as a sportsman or woman?

  • I rely solely on public access opportunities for hunting and fishing. (46.15%)
  • I use a mixture of public and private lands for hunting and fishing. (44.44%)
  • I hunt and fish solely on private lands, but I agree that there is a need for public access opportunities for those who don’t have access to private land. (5.98%)
  • I hunt and fish solely on private lands, and I believe that other sportsmen should be responsible for finding their own access. (3.42%)

A key component of the American System of Conservation Funding, the Pittman- Robertson Act directs excise taxes on firearms, ammo, and archery equipment to wildlife conservation. Since its inception in 1937 the Act has generated more than $12 billion towards conservation. However, there has been a loss of 5 million hunters in the past decade. One proposed solution to help fund conservation is to dedicate lottery proceeds for conservation purposes. Would you support this effort in your state?
