Caucus Groups

Sportsmen’s Caucuses

Sportsmen’s caucuses have a long tradition of working with elected officials in a bipartisan fashion on the federal and state levels. As a result, our sportsmen and women have secured numerous victories for hunters, anglers, recreational shooters and trappers, while creating initiatives that focus on conservation and fish and wildlife habitat.

 

Partnering with these caucuses has provided CSF with an impressive network of legislators who are working with us to protect and advance the sportsmen’s heritage.

Congressional

Founded in 1989, the bipartisan Congressional Sportsmen's Caucus (CSC) has grown into one of the largest and most effective caucuses in the US Congress with approximately 200 members representing almost all 50 states.
 
With bipartisan leadership in both the House and the Senate, the CSC is the sportsmen's ally in Washington protecting and advancing hunting, angling, recreational shooting and trapping. CSF works with the CSC by providing advice, support and information on behalf of the sportsmen’s community to CSC members. This unique relationship gives the CSF a unique niche on Capitol Hill that is unparalleled by any other sportsmen’s organization.

Gubernatorial

Established in 2009, the Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation formed the Governor’s Sportsmen’s Caucus (GSC). The bipartisan caucus has worked to protect and advance the interests of sportsmen and women, while shaping policy that is designed to enhance professional fish and wildlife management.

 

The GSC is in place to improve communication between its participating offices that will only serve to support and enhance the policies and regulations needed to promote and advance hunting, angling, recreational shooting and trapping. The GSC, which consists of bipartisan governors, serves as a compliment to the Congressional Sportsmen’s Caucus and National Assembly of Sportsmen’s Caucuses by working with three separate members who have intimate knowledge of, and can properly represent, the diversity we have in different regions across America.

State Legislative

With the success of the CSC in Washington, CSF set out to create a network of state legislative sportsmen's caucuses; and, in 2004, the National Assembly of Sportsmen's Caucuses (NASC) was launched. Currently, there are approximately 2,000 state legislators who are members of individual state legislative sportsmen's caucuses in all 50 states, all united under the NASC umbrella. By fostering communication and interaction between and among state legislators, sportsmen's groups, industry and media, the NASC and state sportsmen's caucuses are the core of the legislative front protecting and advancing hunting, angling, recreational shooting and trapping and professional fish and wildlife management in state legislatures.

 

NASC is guided by the Executive Council which is comprised of state legislators elected by their peers to provide advice and counsel to the Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation and NASC. The Council assists with the establishment and promotion of pro-sportsmen ideas and facilitates the sharing of information between state caucuses, conservation partners, and allied industries. The Executive Council plays a critical role in the protection and advancement of our time-honored sporting traditions by establishing the activities of NASC, developing issue briefs, and setting guidelines for affiliated state caucuses. The 12 elected members from NASC member states ensure that NASC is able to provide the best service possible to the individual state caucuses.
