Hunting Heritage Protection Act

SIGN IN    SAVE TO MY DU    PRINT    AAA

New bill would promote hunting and protect access to public lands 

America's hunting heritage would have more protection under a bill introduced by Senators Max Baucus (Mont.) and Saxby Chambliss (Ga.) and Congressman Denis Rehberg (Mont.).  Under the bill, federal lands, when possible, would have to be managed in a way that supports, promotes and enhances hunting opportunities. The bill also calls on federal agencies managing federal lands to submit an annual report to Congress explaining denial of access for hunting on federal lands. Additionally, agencies would be required to submit prior written notification to Congress before limitation affecting access to hunting on 5,000 acres or more becomes effective.

Ducks Unlimited supports this effort to protect America's hunting tradition.
