SUPPORT CONSERVATION - BUY AN EXTRA DUCK STAMP!
If you're reading this newsletter, chances are you already have a Federal Duck Stamp, but have you considered buying an extra stamp this year? Ninety-eight percent of the purchase price goes directly to help acquire and protect wetland habitat and purchase conservation easements for the National Wildlife Refuge System. And having an extra one in your wallet might just save someone's day. Also, when you buy your stamp from CWA, you support our incredible conservation efforts and hunting programs.
PUBLIC-LAND HUNTERS DOING THEIR PART
Public-land hunters have been doing a good job so far of following new mask- and social-distancing rules at check stations this season. As Covid cases increase, it will be especially important to continue adhering to these rules, both for the safety of fellow hunters and refuge staff, and to ensure that check stations can continue to operate during these times. Keep up the good work!

If you haven't hunted the refuges yet, you can check out any refuge-specific Covid rules by going to their websites.
