Houston, TX – Houston Safari Club (HSC) is proud to announce its continued support of the Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation (CSF) at two of its upcoming events, the 28th Annual Banquet & Auction in Washington, DC and the 5th Annual Texas Bass, Bucks & Boots event in Houston, Texas. Both events help the CSF continue its efforts to work with Congress, governors, and state legislatures to protect and advance hunting, angling, recreational shooting and trapping.

The 28th Annual Banquet & Auction brings together the outdoor sporting community, supporters, and friends of CSF in Washington, DC on September 13, 2017. The event focuses on recognizing the work of the Congressional Sportsmen’s Caucus (CSC) and allows for attendees to meet and discuss sportsmen legislation efforts with those from Congress in attendance.

HSC is proud to attend the 5th Annual Texas Bass, Bucks & Boots as a co-host sponsor. The event takes place on Thursday, September 28, 2017, at The Houstonian Hotel, Club and Spa in Houston, Texas and will feature a reception, live & silent auction, dinner and raffle. The evening celebrates their accomplishments and is a fun way to raise funds for CSF so they can continue to advance Texas’ hunting and fishing traditions.

Houston Safari Club recently signed on to the following letter in support for S.1514, the “Hunting Heritage and Environmental Legacy Preservation for Wildlife Act” or “HELP for Wildlife Act.”

July 14, 2017

The Honorable John Barrasso
Chairman
U.S. Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works
Washington, DC 20510

Dear Chairman Barrasso and Senators Cardin, Boozman, Klobuchar, Capito, and Baldwin,
Thank you for introducing S. 1514, the Hunting Heritage and Environmental Legacy Preservation for Wildlife Act (“HELP for Wildlife”). This is a truly bipartisan bill that includes a range of provisions designed to improve the management of fish, wildlife, habitat, and outdoor recreation including hunting and fishing. On behalf of the millions of hunters, anglers, and outdoor enthusiasts from all 50 states represented by our organizations, we express our support for the HELP Act and your bipartisan efforts to advance the interests of sportsmen and women.
HELP for Wildlife would reauthorize important conservation programs including the North American Wetlands Conservation Act, the Neotropical Migratory Bird Conservation Act, and the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation. It would establish a National Fish Habitat Conservation Act to conserve fish and fish habitat through partnerships that enhance fish and wildlife-dependent recreation. HELP for Wildlife prioritizes recovery of the Chesapeake Bay by reauthorizing the Chesapeake Bay Program and Chesapeake Bay Initiative through 2022. The Chesapeake is our nation’s largest estuary and a legendary fishing, boating, and waterfowl hunting location. These programs provide funds for a regional partnership that coordinates the ongoing restoration of the Chesapeake Bay and its watershed, and they support the Chesapeake Bay Gateways and Watertrails Network.
HELP for Wildlife would provide funding and support for the construction and expansion of public target ranges on national forests and Bureau of Land Management lands. Public ranges are in short supply in many areas and this bill would help meet the increasing demand for safe places to shoot. In addition, expanded recreational shooting infrastructure will help generate additional conservation revenue by facilitating shooting sports activities that are fundamentally linked to dedicated excise taxes on firearms, ammunition and archery equipment through Wildlife Restoration program.
HELP for Wildlife makes sure normal agricultural practices are not mischaracterized as otherwise prohibited attempts to bait migratory game birds. It also exempts lead sport fishing equipment from regulation under the Toxic Substances Control Act. Finally, it affirms previously issued U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service rules to remove wolves in the Great Lakes and Wyoming from the Endangered Species Act, returning management of these populations to state wildlife agencies.
We applaud your leadership on this bipartisan conservation and outdoor recreation bill. We also encourage your collaboration with your colleagues in the U.S. Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources in order to get the best ideas from both committees and ensure the greatest likelihood one or more packages of sportsmen bills becoming law.
Sincerely,
