New bill introduced in Congress supports hunting

Between all the news about anti hunting lobbyist trying to stop hunting it is refreshing to learn about new legislation introduced in the Congress that supports hunting. From the U.S. Sportsmen’s Alliance I received the following press release.

Congress Introduces Legislation to Protect Hunting on Federal Lands

Hunting’s Importance Reaffirmed

(Columbus)-Companion bills, introduced yesterday in Congress, protect the rights of sportsmen to hunt on federal land while also recognizing hunting’s importance to all conservation.

The Hunting Heritage Protection Act, is made up of Senate bill 1348, sponsored by Senator Saxby Chambliss (R- GA) and H.R. 3046, sponsored by Representative Denny Rehberg (R-MT).
Both pieces of legislation require that federal land be managed in a way that supports, promotes, and enhances access for hunting and mandates that an annual report be submitted to Congress detailing any limitations that are imposed on hunting federal lands. It also will require a written notification be given to Congress prior to any agency action that limits hunting on large parcels of federal land consisting of 5,000 or more acres.

“Sportsmen across America owe Senator Chambliss, Representative Rehberg, and other member of Congress many thanks for the steps they are taking to preserve our hunting rights,” stated USSA President and CEO Bud Pidgeon. “In a time where access to suitable hunting land is becoming increasingly difficult, this legislation goes a long way towards curtailing that trend and guaranteeing current or increased hunting opportunities are available today and tomorrow.”

Sportsmen should contact their Congressional elected officials and ask them to support the Hunting Heritage Protection Act. Inform them that hunters and other sportsmen and sportswomen are great stewards of federal lands and should have full access to those lands whenever and wherever possible. To find your Congressional officials, go to the Legislative Action Center.

My friends,

Sorry to interject like this, but many of our posts have been stolen from us by a lowlife scammer Mark Osterholt. Please help me track this clown down and run him into the ground.

You guys all work hard at and for your content, don’t let this sleezeball steal it without a fight. We all know each other through the medium of Blogging and specifically through the Outdoor Bloggers Summit. Let’s help each others out.

All I am asking right now is for everyone to link to these two posts so that anyone dealing with this lowlife will have second thoughts. I have researched the information and it is solid.

Let’s Get This Plagiarizer!
Mark Osterholt is Stealing Your Content

I will be spending the day tomorrow tracking down the owners of each and every post on those websites to let them know their material is hijacked. Many of you will be getting emails or comments on your blog. If you don’t get one, don’t be complacent, I may just not have gotten to it.

Please link and let me know so I can link back to you too!

I'm a firearm safety/hunter education instructor in N.W. Arkansas. I've developed 3 firearm safety products that the International Hunter Education Assoc. has addopted as "Training Aids". I'm trying to spread the word to help save more lives during hunting season or while using firearms. Go to and watch the Rifle Reel Instructional video to better understand these life saving products. You will also see a "Field Test" report letter from the IHEA. The only other firearm safety product is the trigger lock, which is for storing firearms not using it. Help me make hunting safer.

Many blessings,

Wayne Woolsey
