Urge Support and Co-Sponsorship for H.R. 1825: The Recreational Fishing and Hunting Heritage and Opportunities Act

By

The Recreational Fishing and Hunting Heritage and Opportunities Act (H.R. 1825) is vital to protecting America’s sporting heritage through the expansion and enhancement of hunting and shooting opportunities on federal lands.

H.R. 1825 would require federal public land management officials to exercise their authority under existing law to facilitate the use of, and access to, federal public lands and waters for fishing, sport hunting, and recreational shooting.

Additionally, it would make the heads of federal public land management agencies exercise their discretion in a manner that supports and facilitates recreational fishing, hunting, and shooting opportunities, to the extent authorized under applicable law.

Finally, it would allow federal agencies to lease their lands for shooting ranges, and designate specific lands for recreational shooting activities as well as requiring annual reports on closures of federal public lands to recreational fishing, sport hunting, or shooting. It sets forth requirements for specified closures or significant restrictions involving 640 or more contiguous acres of federal public lands or waters to fishing or hunting or related activities.

Contact your legislators and urge support and co-sponsorship for H.R. 1825
