Support Affordable Hunting for CA Youth!

June 11, 2018

Last month, AB 2151 passed the Assembly and is headed to the Senate Natural Resources and Wildlife committee.

Under current law, big game tags cost children hundreds of dollars, making hunting opportunities unaffordable for many families. AB 2151 seeks to create affordable apprentice tags to ensure that every child can engage in this treasured American pastime.

This bill comes at a critical time for hunting in our state. With youth hunting rates falling more than 50% in the last twenty years, California desperately needs to revitalize its young hunter population.

Without a new generation of hunters and the vital funds they generate for conservation and wildlife management efforts, our state will be faced with a potential environmental catastrophe. Without hunters to help manage big game populations, many of our states cherished species will suffer overpopulation and starvation.

CRPA would like to thank Assemblyman Gray for authoring this phenomenal piece of legislation and extend our gratitude to the members who voted to support young hunters.

We need your help to get this bill to the governor’s desk. Call your State Senator today and urge them to vote YES on AB 2151; urge them to vote for the children and the future of wildlife conservation.
