Let our Senators know that we want them to support the Sportsman Act of 2012. A vote is upcomming. If we all wait for others to act, we may find ourselves with nowhere to fish!


The Sportsmen's Act of 2012 includes:

Making Public Lands Public Act (S. 901) –Increases access for angling, hunting and recreational shooting on federal lands, by directing 1.5 percent of the Land and Water Conservation Fund to ensure access to fishing, hunting and other recreational activities.

The Hunting, Fishing and Recreational Shooting Protection Act (S. 838) – Blocks ongoing attempts to federally ban lead in recreational fishing equipment and ammunition by clarifying the Toxic Substances Control Act.

Billfish Conservation Act (S. 1451) – Conserves declining billfish populations by prohibiting the commercial sale and importation of billfish throughout the U.S., with an exception in the state of Hawaii and the Pacific Insular Area islands to preserve traditional fisheries.

National Fish Habitat Conservation Act (S. 1201) – Authorizes the National Fish Habitat Partnership, the most comprehensive effort ever attempted to conserve, restore and enhance fish habitat on a range-wide scale.

Artificial Reefs in the Gulf of Mexico – Requires the Department of the Interior to coordinate federal and state agency efforts in order to maintain idle drilling platforms as valuable artificial fish reefs.
