Help Defend Hunting & Conservation

March 16, 2018

California has seen a steady decline in hunting participation over the last 30 years. The number of young hunters has declined partially due to the high costs associated with hunting.  This has prevented many from sharing in this time honored tradition. With no provision for reasonably priced youth tags, many families cannot afford the expensive big game tags required by law.

Hunters are the cornerstone of the North American Conservation Model; without a new generation of hunters to manage game and provide vital revenue for our state’s major conservation projects, wildlife management will suffer.

As such, it is crucial we develop a robust next generation of hunter/conservationists to carry on the legacy of wildlife management. AB 2151 (Gray, D) will foster a new generation of hunters in California by removing the financial barriers to youth hunting. By creating affordable youth tags for big game animals such as, elk, pronghorn, bighorn sheep, and bears, AB 2151 will give more of our state’s young hunters the opportunity to take part in this hallowed tradition.

Given the importance of securing a new generation of hunters, it is imperative that we pass this bill. Please contact Eduardo Garcia, chairman of the Assembly Committee on Water, Parks, and Wildlife, and urge him to vote yes on AB 2151 with no amendments. With your support, we will continue the fight to guarantee the survival hunting and conservation efforts in California.
