The OHFA is a 501(c)(3) charitable non-profit and as such we refrain from activities that involve influencing policy-makers, instead we pursue educational opportunities such as the annual Legislative Shoot and informational materials such as Professor John Reiger's book, "The American Sportsmen and the Origins of Conservation." We feel that providing such educational opportunities helps inform people about the important role hunting, fishing and trapping play in the conservation of Alaska's wild resources so that they may make more informed decisions when considering these age old traditions.
17th Annual National Assembly of Sportsmen’s Caucuses Sportsman-Legislator Summit which will be held on December 8th and 9th (registration information HERE). Traditionally an in-person event, this year’s Summit will be held virtually through a combination of webinars and Zoom meetings. Additionally, we are also offering a FREE registration option for this year’s gathering that we hope you will consider taking advantage of. As an added incentive, the first 250 attendees to register (regardless of registration level) will receive an additional entry into the door prize drawing that features several great prizes.
The Summit is the largest gathering of pro-sportsmen legislators that occurs each year. This event provides the bipartisan group of sportsmen-legislators – representing states across the nation – with the opportunity to learn from a wide array of state and federal natural resource agencies, allied non-governmental conservation organizations, and industries concerned with the future of our nation's outdoor heritage. The meeting is also an opportunity for legislators to discuss issues impacting the sportsmen's conservation community and to share information relevant to America's hunters, anglers, recreational shooters, and trappers. The theme for this year’s event is 2020: A Clear Vision for Enhancing Access, Opportunities, and #ResponsibleRecreation, and the agenda will feature a wide array of topics including: conservation funding, wildlife disease issues, hunting and fishing access discussions, and more. We have a great slate of speakers lined up for this event, and we sincerely hope you will join us.
