U.S.A. -( Fairfax, Va. – The National Rifle Association is pleased to announce the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding today with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) to assist in the recruitment, education, and retaining of sportsmen and women through NRA’s vast hunter education and outreach programs.

“Together with the USFWS, the NRA has worked for decades to ensure as many outdoorsmen and women as possible can safely and responsibly enjoy our hunting heritage,” said Jason Ouimet, executive director of NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action. “We look forward to a formalization of this longstanding relationship and thank Director Skipwith for her tireless work on this effort.”

A ten-year agreement, the MOU outlines the agreements and responsibilities of both parties including a commitment to science-based strategies for wildlife conservation along with NRA’s pledge to enhance hunter safety, marksmanship, and shooting safety through their free online hunter education program, the Hunters’ Leadership Forum, the Youth Hunter Education Challenge, the Women’s Wilderness Escape and its magazine, American Hunter, to achieve these goals.

“This MOU strengthens our shared commitment to wildlife and natural resource conservation while preserving our American heritage of hunting and recreating outdoors,” said U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Director Aurelia Skipwith. “This partnership supports the Trump Administration and Secretary of the Interior David Bernhardt’s priority of increasing access to public lands and expanding hunting opportunities while promoting the safe, responsible use of firearms.”

I try not to pick on the left, the right, nor the NRA as today they are all easy targets. As for The NRA I will thank them and local Sportsmen Groups to bring me into the Shooting Sports at the age of 12 in 1962, and I have been gunning ever since. Now the NRA has changed and not much to my liking, but I will ask them for Help. I am a South Dakotan, moved away twice, and moved back twice. The year I have decided SD needs to Up Their Game on Target Shooting Areas. I have… Read more »

Will the Communist Biden Regime terminate this agreement. Biden has promised to destroy the NRA. I think is time we start giving Biden back his medicine. We fought the communists for decades then went to sleep. Its time to wake up.
