Hunting and recreational shooting with firearms and archery equipment are important elements of America’s outdoor heritage, and are uniquely dependent upon public access to federal, state, and private lands. Constraints on access have been identified as one of the leading impediments to sustaining and growing participation in these activities.

SCC White Paper Goals and Recommendations

  • ƒƒ

  • Expand and develop partnerships with the DOI, USDA, and Department of Defense (DOD) to determine what lands could be accessed by hunters and recreational shooters.
