Assemblyman Goes South on Hunting

March 20, 2018

Today we have taken a major step towards affordable youth hunting in California. AB 2151 (Gray, D) passed the Assembly Committee on Water, Parks, and Wildlife and will now proceed to the Appropriations Committee. Though there is still a great deal of ground to cover, this was a major victory for California’s hunting community.

While most of the committee members voted to ensure a robust new generation of hunters, Assemblyman Jim Wood voted against affordable youth hunting.

For someone who claims to support protecting our working lands and forests, Assemblyman Wood’s vote against AB 2151 shows a blatant disregard for the future of wildlife conservation and land management in California. Without new hunters to manage game populations and fund conservation projects, there could be catastrophic environmental consequences. Thankfully, the bill passed in spite of Assemblyman Wood’s callous indifference towards young hunters and the health of our state’s wildlife.

As the representative for parts of Humboldt, Del Norte, Trinity, Mendecino, and Sonoma counties, Assemblyman Wood’s district encompasses vast tracts of hunting land and is home to many of our state’s hunters. It is deeply concerning that he would be willing to vote against promoting young hunters. Failure to support our next generation of hunters will jeopardize the future of conservation in our state.

Contact Assemblyman Wood today and tell him that his neglect for young hunters and conservationists is unacceptable.
