Hunting and shootings sports participation have steadily declined over the past several decades. Many of our members are hunters and recreational shooters and their pursuits have long supported wildlife conservation funding nationwide.
The IWLA Shooting Sports Conservation Committee hosted a webinar, entitled R3 for Hunters and Recreational Shooters to discuss how Izaak Walton League chapters can help secure the future of hunting and the shooting sports.
During this 30-minute webinar, Ernie Padgette, Shooting Sports Conservation Committee Chair, and Scott Kovarovics, IWLA Executive Director, discussed the League’s strategy to support and implement the national R3 Plan to recruit, retain, and reactivate hunters and recreational shooters across America.
You can learn more about this topic in the recent Outdoor America article, A Roadmap for the Future of Hunting and Shooting Sports or review the complete R3 National Plan created by the Council to Advance Hunting and the Shooting Sports.
