 Bills Aimed at Ensuring the Next Generation of Waterfowlers

 Ducks Unlimited applauds the introduction of two bills aimed at ensuring the next generation of waterfowlers has access to the duck blind and protecting America’s rich hunting heritage. The Hunting Heritage Protection Act, introduced by Senators Max Baucus (Mont.) and Saxby Chambliss (Ga.) in the Senate and Representative Denny Rehberg (Mont.) in the House would require federal lands to be better managed for hunting.

The measure would require federal lands, when possible, to be managed in a way that supports, promotes and enhances hunting opportunities. The bill also calls on federal agencies managing federal lands to submit an annual report to Congress explaining denial of access for hunting on federal lands. Additionally, agencies would be required to submit prior written notification to Congress before limitation affecting access to hunting on 5,000 acres or more becomes effective.

According to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, more than 13 million American’s participate in hunting, and sportsmen contribute more than $76 billion to the US economy each year and support 1.6 million jobs. Hunting is recognized as an environmentally beneficial activity and is an important component of effective wildlife management.
