The mission of Pennsylvania Federation of Sportsmen’s Clubs, Inc. is to provide a statewide, united voice for the concerns of all sportsmen and conservationists; to insure that their rights and interests are protected; and to protect and enhance the environment and our natural resources.
The collective voice of the PFSC is one our state lawmakers hear again and again as PFSC continuously works to protect and promote our outdoor heritage, conservation and Second Amendment rights for all Pennsylvanians and future generations.
The Federation was instrumental in the passage of the Mentored Youth Hunting legislation, passage of legislation allowing the transfer of an antlerless license to a Mentored Youth Hunter, and worked closely with the NRA and other sportsmen’s and conservation organizations to help get the Castle Doctrine legislation passed and signed into law. The PFSC lead the charge to protect your Game Lands, lower mercury emissions that negatively affect our fish and wildlife, and protect and ensure the public’s rights to navigable waterways. PFSC is monitoring Chronic Wasting Disease, opposes a merger of our wildlife and fish agencies, especially one under DCNR, and supports Growing Greener Initiatives and adequate and alternative funding for our resource agencies.
The Pennsylvania Federation of Sportsmen’s Clubs is constantly monitoring legislation in the Pennsylvania and US Legislatures, tracking bills that would impact our hunting, angling, and trapping heritage, natural and renewable resources, and issues affecting our 2nd Amendment Rights. PFSC maintains a page on their web site that monitors progress of PA’s legislative bills: http://www.pfsc.org/LegislativeCenter/tabid/140/Default.aspx
As an advocate for sportsmen and sportswomen, the PFSC has been a catalyst for bringing sportsmen and conservation organizations to the table with our state wildlife, fish and conservation agencies and the legislature, making sure our voices are heard. The Federation has almost 80 years of experience fighting for and protecting your outdoor heritage and 2nd Amendment rights and privileges.
