Washington, DC -(AmmoLand.com)- On July 29, legislators associated with the National Assembly of Sportsmen’s Caucuses (NASC) from across the Western United States gathered at Garfinkel’s Bar and Grill in Vail, Colorado to discuss policy successes and challenges related to the region’s rich outdoor heritage.
The event provided an opportunity for legislators from Alaska, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Oregon, and Wyoming to interact with members of the sportsmen’s community. Attendees also had the opportunity to learn about regional policy issues of importance to the western hunters, anglers and outdoor enthusiasts that rely on public land to pursue their favorite recreational activities.
“Events like these are what NASC is all about,” said NASC Executive Council and Alaska Outdoor Heritage Caucus member Representative Mark Neuman. “Bringing like-minded legislators together to discuss our efforts to support hunting, angling and trapping creates a strong coalition dedicated to protecting our outdoor recreation economy, our fish and wildlife resources and our way of life.”
In addition to CSF, the event was sponsored by Ducks Unlimited and Altria Client Services.
