During challenging times, Americans traditionally look to the outdoors for relief and diversion. For 30 years, the work of CSF has been to ensure that American hunters and anglers, sport shooters and trappers, the traditional guardians of our public lands and wildlife, continue to have the best available opportunities to enjoy our lands. CSF remains committed to advancing and protecting the rights and privileges of the American sportsman.
