USSA Calls on President Obama to Take Action


(Oct 8, 2013) - The issue facing sportsmen has gained national attention.  Since that time, the USSA has been interviewed by Washington D.C.’s ‘The Hill’ newspaper, Louisiana’s WWL radio station, and numerous other newspaper outlets.


To summarize, the federal government has issued directives to “close” accessible public lands and waters while the government is “shutdown.”  At stake are millions of acres of public land administered by agencies such as the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) and National Park Service (NPS).  For decades the public has been free to access these lands for recreational purposes—including hunting, fishing and trapping—without securing any specific form of permission or authorization.  But now, these agencies are being told to close access to their lands because of the standoff taking place over funding the federal government.


Although discussions between the White House and Congress appear to hold some promise of a compromise, sportsmen are still paying the price during a prime hunting time in many areas of the country.
