Oregon is full of wonderful and successful pro-hunting conservation groups that do amazing work. From removing invasive species on public land to building guzzlers in drought-stricken areas, they have and continue to go great on the ground conservation work. However, the overwhelming majority of sportsmen won’t argue that there are many issues facing hunting and fishing in Oregon. An over abundance of predators, relentless lawsuits, a lack of proper habitat on federal land, just to name a few. How did we get here?
As a community, we failed to identify and adapt to an emerging threat to our lifestyle in the past 20 plus years. Radical environmental and anti-hunting groups using lawsuits and the emotions of uninformed voters through the ballot box to force wildlife professionals to make policies that are detrimental to our wildlife and our lifestyle. This is why the Oregon Outdoor Council was formed, to respond to this growing threat, and Oregon sportsmen and women overwhelmingly support this effort. Here’s what they had to say in our recent survey.
From all of us involved with the effort to restore the voice sportsmen and women deserve and protect our way of life for future generations…thank you for your unwavering support!
Happy Hunting, Fishing, and Trapping!
Dominic Aiello, President
