Hunting Is Conservation and we encourage everyone who supports hunting to take greater pride in our legacy. Hunters and anglers were among the first crusaders for conservation and we remain today’s most important conservation leaders. Man has hunted since he walked the Earth. Every early culture relied on hunting for survival. Through hunting, man forged a connection with the land and learned quickly that stewardship of the land went hand-in-hand with maintaining wildlife and their own way of life.
The United States has the most successful wildlife management system in the world. Hunters and anglers have contributed more financial and physical support to that system than any other group of individuals.
