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.

A key component of the American System of Conservation Funding, the Pittman- Robertson Act directs excise taxes on firearms, ammo, and archery equipment to wildlife conservation. Since its inception in 1937 the Act has generated more than $12 billion towards conservation. However, there has been a loss of 5 million hunters in the past decade. One proposed solution to help fund conservation is to dedicate lottery proceeds for conservation purposes. Would you support this effort in your state?
