What Matters Most to Hunters and Anglers?

The TRCP has a simple mission. We strive to guarantee you a place to hunt and fish. Our work falls into three main categories:

  • strengthening laws, policies and practices affecting fish and wildlife conservation;
  • leading partnerships that provide a strong sportsmen’s voice in the decision-making process;
  • building consensus in the conservation community to advance policy solutions.

While our mission sounds simple, we often deal with complex issues. Laws, policies and decision making – the “insider baseball” that takes place on Capitol Hill can be hard for the average person to understand.

In an effort to put our work in tangible and applicable terms, we developed a “cheat sheet” for the everyday sportsman interested in conservation policy. The 2013 Sportsmen’s Conservation Priorities outlines the main areas where we at the TRCP will be focusing our work on behalf of hunters and anglers in 2013.

We’ll be hosting a live chat on Tuesday, March 5, to give you an opportunity to ask questions about the 2013 Sportsmen’s Conservation Priorities. Expect more information and a link to the video conference later this week. In the meantime, take a look and let us know what you think in the comments section below.

Christen Duxbury joined the TRCP January 2010. Christen grew up with wilderness-loving parents who taught her to enjoy all the land can give, from the solitude of a mountain to the thrill of casting a fly. She came into her own as a land conservationist during her time at The Wilderness Society. Before signing on at the TRCP, she worked for an environmental campaign aimed at passing a comprehensive climate change bill in Congress. She spends most of her free time climbing rocks, paddling and enjoying the wilderness she works to protect.

    What gives? Without the 2nd Amendment there can be no freedom to enjoy our passions in the mountains, fields or waterways and AT HOME! I know your thinking that it will take care of itself, it isn’t!
    The time for a unified voice is here to stand up for our rights that have been fought for by those who gave all with loss of life, limb and happiness for US in the USA!
    It doesn’t matter if you don’t own one or think that it shouldn’t be used, but what happens when they mention your grandpa’s 30-30 , dad’s 1100 or your 22 next time or ban plastic fishing baits!

    I live, hunt and fish in Colorado and have for all of my 65 years. What I see here is a Park and Wildlife Commission that is actively and openly pushing the curtailment of hunting and fishing in this state. It has been taken over by the left, and those people are all about taking nothing but pictures, killing nothing and practicing catch and release if they fish at all. That someone would actually eat their take or catch is abhorrent to them and their philosophy. To enact this idea, they make the regulations for hunting more and more complex; the application dates more and more restrictive, the myriad of different requirements and regulations in adjoining areas contradictory and confusing and then enforce such requirements and regulations with an iron fist. They do the same with fishing. Many hunters and fishermen I know have simply thrown up their hands and said “I quit.” When writers and journalists point to the lower and lower numbers of hunters and fishermen, I suggest they look at the reasons.
