WASHINGTON, D.C. — U.S. Sens. Saxby Chambliss (R-Ga.), ranking Republican member of the Senate Agriculture Committee, and Johnny Isakson (R-Ga.) announced they have introduced the Hunting Heritage Protection Act, which aims to recognize the heritage of hunting and provide opportunities for continued hunting on federal public land.

The senators are members of the Congressional Sportsmen’s Caucus.  

“This legislation simply seeks to protect the rights of sportsmen to hunt on federal public lands all across America,” Chambliss said. “Hunting is truly an American tradition and a key component to our conservation and wildlife management practices. By maintaining designated levels of federal land for hunting, we are affording thousands of men, women, boys and girls the opportunity to enjoy this great American pastime.”

“This legislation will help preserve the rights of hunters on federal public lands,” Isakson said.
