By now, you have received my numerous emails from Big Rock Sports, as well as from the American Sportfishing Association (ASA), the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) and other organizations asking for your help in getting passage of the SHARE Act (HR2406) and the Bipartisan Sportsmen’s Act of 2015 (S405) that is currently being considered in the US Senate.


In the space here I won’t bore you again by going over the many, many positive provisions included in these acts that will benefit all outdoorsmen and -women whether hunter, fisher, boater, camper or hiker. The only thing I hope to achieve in this Sportsman column is to convince you that not contacting your Senators and Congressman is the equivalent of a “no” vote against these bills. Every letter, phone call, email and face-to-face interaction counts. The opposition to these two bills is using every means possible to derail this legislation for the third time. They don’t want us to enjoy the outdoor natural resources of this nation. No hunting, no fishing, no boating, no camping, no hiking! Help protect what is rightfully yours, contact your US Representative and Senators today.
