Bill Horn is one of America’s top legal minds in the area of wildlife and natural resources law. He has been with USSA for 23 years. During his tenure with USSA, sportsmen have prevailed on key battles to protect the rights of Americans to hunt, fish and trap. Notable among these is the National Wildlife Refuge Improvement Act of 1997 which makes hunting and fishing priority uses of the 100 million-acre public land system.

Early in his career he worked as a Congressional staffer on the old House Interior Committee. Bill was appointed Assistant Secretary of the Interior for Fish, Wildlife, and Parks by President Reagan. In that job, he oversaw the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the National Park Service and directed important programs regarding migratory bird hunting, the Endangered Species Act, and fisheries restoration programs. He also chaired the Great Lakes Fishery Commission and the National Wildlife Refuge Centennial Commission.

When not manning the political and legal front lines on behalf of hunters and anglers, he is a hardcore grouse and woodcock hunter, waterfowler, and saltwater fly fisher. His passion for these pursuits has spurred ventures into outdoor writing and his articles have appeared in The Pointing Dog Journal, American Angler, and Florida Sportsman magazines. Bill’s first book – Seasons on the Flats: An Angler’s Year in the Florida Keys – will be released this summer
