Together We Can Save Our
Hunting, Fishing and Trapping Rights
Working Together to STOP the Assault
On Your Right to Hunt, Fish and Trap
Every legal victory achieved by the anti-hunting crowd, no matter where it occurs, has a domino effect that will eventually curtail hunting, fishing and trapping in “your backyard.” That’s why it is so very important for the Sportsmen’s Alliance Foundation to have the resources necessary to defend hunting, fishing and trapping in precedent-setting cases where those rights have been seriously challenged.

NEW JERSEY
BLACK BEARS
Hunting Banned at the
Stroke of a Pen in a
Blatant Abuse of Power

When New Jersey Gov. Philip Murphy politicized wildlife management by banning black bear hunting on public lands through an executive order, he undermined trained wildlife biologists and professionals who disagreed with his radical agenda, thus jeopardizing scientific wildlife management in the Garden State.

WHY WINNING THIS CASE IS SO IMPORTANT

The New Jersey Legislature has granted the state’s Fish and Game Council the authority to set hunting seasons and regulations. Gov. Murphy’s executive order is a backdoor attempt to circumvent the law, just to appease extremist animal-rights groups. That’s why the Sportsmen’s Alliance Foundation, along with our partners, filed suit in court to challenge the legality of this executive order. This kind of political pandering to a radical minority, if allowed to go unchallenged, would set a dangerous precedent. It could very well lead governors in other states, including yours, to jump on the bandwagon in order to infringe on your lawful hunting rights.

THE GREATER
YELLOWSTONE GRIZZLY
A Case With Far-reaching
Consequences for
Hunters in All 50 States

The U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service recommends removing the grizzly bears in and around Yellowstone National Park from the Endangered Species List, but radical anti-hunting groups filed lawsuits to successfully stop this delisting despite the bear population exceeding its recovery goal by 40 percent! On September 24, 2018, a federal judge wrongly put the Yellowstone-area grizzly bears back on the endangered list despite the fact that populations have recovered.

WHY WINNING THIS CASE IS SO IMPORTANT

The manipulation of the Endangered Species Act has long been a target of anti-hunting organizations. They use the courts
to render the intent of this law meaningless. If this decision
is allowed to stand, anti-hunting activists will put other game beyond the reach of hunters and disturb the balance of nature. The Sportsmen’s Alliance Foundation will continue to fight in court against this misguided ruling, which essentially protects wildlife populations that are not endangered and pose a threat to humans and other game species.

Court Sides with Sportsmen
but Leaves Wolves
Protected for Now

Since 2007, anti-hunting activists have prevented the U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service from removing recovered wolf populations in Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin from the Endangered Species List. While a recent court ruling left wolves protected, the court laid out a roadmap for delisting which is a win for sportsmen.

WHY WINNING THIS CASE IS SO IMPORTANT

This partial victory paves the way for listing and delisting
of endangered species under the jurisdiction of experts at the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and not subject to the emotional, uninformed rants of animal-rights activists. The precedent set in this case will prove helpful in future lawsuits where animal-rights groups try to misuse the Endangered Species Act to further their agenda to ban hunting.
