Defend Your Right to Hunt, Fish and Trap
Hunters, anglers and trappers in Michigan have one chance to defend our right to hunt, fish and trap from out-of-state anti-hunters. The single biggest piece of pro-sportsman legislation in decades needs your support! Thanks to your phone calls, both the Senate and the House have passed this legislation. Now we need to ask Gov. Snyder to sign it!
Senate Bills 288 and 289 will ensure that wildlife management decisions in Michigan are made using sound science, not ballot-box biology. If we don’t pass this legislation now, out-of-state anti-hunters like the Humane Society of the United States will come back to our state again and again to attack our hunting rights one by one!
Call Governor Snyder now and tell him you support SB 288 and 289!
After you’ve called, shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org to tell us what they said!
If you’re a member of a club, organization or just have a lot of hunting and fishing buddies, print out some copies of this fact sheet and make sure everyone you know who hunts, fishes or traps gets one and calls their legislators, too: Support Scientific Wildlife Management
The following bullet points describe what SB 288 and 289 would do, and may be helpful in talking to your representative:
- Authorize the Natural Resources Commission to designate game species under its Proposal G mandate to use sound science.
- Grant the Natural Resources Commission exclusive authority to issue fisheries orders.
- Provide free licenses to active-duty members of the military.
- Protect the rights to hunt and fish in state statute.
