US Rep. Latta Introduces New Sportsmen's Act
NEWTOWN, Conn. — The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), the trade association for the firearms, ammunition, hunting and shooting sports industries, today noted that Congressional Sportsmen’s Caucus (CSC) Co-Chair Bob Latta (R-Ohio) has introduced HR 3590, a new bipartisan version of the Sportsmen’s Heritage and Recreational Enhancement (SHARE) Act of 2013.
Earlier this year, Latta and CSC Co-Chair Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.), joined by Vice-Chairs, U.S. Reps. Rob Wittman (R-Va.) and Tim Walz (D-Minn.), introduced the SHARE Act as a package of pro-sportsmen’s legislation designed to safeguard and promote America’s hunting and fishing traditions. The legislation enjoys wide support from both sides of the political aisle.
Groups Work to Legalize Whitewater Kayaking in Yellowstone
An article published by the Summit Daily details the story of three men who set out to kayak in Yellowstone in 1986. The group—Doug Ammons, Rob Lesser, and Bob McDougall—began their trip at 4:30 a.m. to avoid any attention from park rangers. Although they knew what they were doing was illegal, they had confidence that the route they sought was remote enough for them to enter and exit the park unnoticed.
The expedition, which began in Gardiner, Montana, was going well at first, with the group successfully navigating a portion of Yellowstone’s Grand Canyon. After stopping to camp and eat, the group got ready to get back in the water and kayak toward class V rapids at the mouth of Hellroaring Creek. It was then when they heard helicopter blades above them and saw three men in uniform staring down.
Archery "Catching Fire" Faster Than Ever, Thanks to Pop Culture Boost
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – From side braids to “Capitol” fashion and makeup, “The Hunger Games” franchise has influenced teen culture in numerous ways, but staggering growth statistics from USA Archery, released today, show that the sport of archery could be the biggest winner of all.
After all, archery’s relationship with the mega-popular film goes back to 2011, when five time Olympian Khatuna Lorig coached actress Jennifer Lawrence, helping the star prepare for her role as Katniss Everdeen.
