Program Aims to Protect Hunting Heritage

Postby Dan Schmidt » Tue Mar 30, 2010 9:05 am

Today, the U.S. Sportsmen's Alliance (USSA) officially unveiled a dynamic new initiative aimed at building an army of sportsmen from coast to coast to protect America's outdoor heritage for future generations.

The USSA's Sentry Program is free to join and represents the most intense effort ever focused on attracting sportsmen to become active players in the fight to preserve hunting, fishing and trapping rights whenever they are threatened.

By becoming a Sentry, sportsmen gain access to instant email communications about local and national threats to their outdoor rights as they happen. They will also be given specific instructions on which public officials to contact and when as these threats emerge. This communication network will enable sportsmen to mobilize quicker and more effectively than ever before.

In addition to getting sportsmen engaged in advocacy, the Sentry Program offers additional benefits, giving sportsmen a "one stop" web site for key information including state hunting regulations, information on where one can find a shooting range and other hunting and fishing tips from recognized leaders in the outdoor community.

"There are many anti-hunting organizations seeking to do away with what we love," said Bud Pidgeon, USSA president and CEO. "By coming together under the Sentry Program, sportsmen will enhance our ranks and collectively stand tall against those groups."

There is no cost to join the Sentry Program and requires only a minimal amount of information from those interested. For more information, please contact 614-888-4868 , visit the USSA's website at, or e-mail

The U.S. Sportsmen's Alliance is a national association of sportsmen and sportsmen's organizations that protects the rights of hunters, anglers and trappers in the courts, legislatures, at the ballot, in Congress and through public education programs. For more information about the U.S. Sportsmen's Alliance and its work, call (614) 888-4868 or visit its website,

Good for them! I would encourage ANYONE who hunts and cherishes our way of life to participate in and support the USSA and it's endeavors. They are the real McCoy, and are constantly on the front line fighting for our interests as outdoors people.

I've been a member for several years, and am also a volunteer archery coach for their Trail Blazer Days, which is a day long schedule of activities to introduce kids and their families to hunting, shooting, archery, fishing, bowfishing, trapping, falconry, and just about any other outdoor activity. Contact your local affiliate and volunteer, they ALWAYS need people with backgrounds in hunting/fishing/etc. to give a day to help. You will get as much if not more out of it than the kids do!
