Action Alert: Your Senator Needs to Hear from Pheasant Hunters This Morning

Your voice as a pheasant hunter is needed this morning.

Your voice as a pheasant hunter is needed this morning.

Years of positioning and political posturing is finally coming to a head in Washington, D.C. today.  The future of every pheasant hunter and pheasant hunter’s grandchild is being debated on the floor of the U.S. Senate this morning.Earlier this month, Pheasants Forever joined fellow conservation organizations along with farm groups in a historical coalition supporting crop insurance’s connection to conservation compliance.  Today . . . THIS MORNING . . . it’s critical that your state’s two U.S. Senators hear the following from every Pheasants Forever member as the Farm Bill is debated on the Senate floor:

  1. You support the conservation compliance tied crop insurance deal Pheasants Forever agreed to without amendments to weaken it.
  2. You support Sodsaver policy to protect America’s last remaining native prairies, which are critical to you as an American bird hunter.
  3. You support a strong Conservation Reserve Program (CRP), which is critical to water quality, wildlife habitat, healthy soil, rural economies, outdoor recreation and America’s hunting heritage.

No matter what’s on your day’s list of “To Do’s,” please put this at the top.  Our ability to chase roosters behind good bird dogs under autumn skies depends on your emails and phone calls today.  Your two U.S. Senators absolutely need to hear from you today.

Your Senator’s contact info is available at www.senate.gov or leave phone messages by calling the Capitol switchboard at 202.224.3121.

Your voice will make a difference.  Current and future generations of sportsmen and sportswomen depend on you this morning.  Thanks for your help.

The D.C. Minute is written by Dave Nomsen, Pheasants Forever & Quail Forever’s Vice President of Government Relations.

    I strongly urge all Senators to support a strong Conservation Reserve Program not only for wildlife today but for the future.

  2. Mark Herwig says:

    I just called my two Senators and it was real easy. They answered the phones right away and listened to what I had to say. I encourage folks to call as this is critical to our habitat, hunting, soil and water quality.

    NOW is the time for action i made my two calls many hunters/pheasants forever members will sit around and lament the loss of grassland habitat and the demise of pheasant hunting as we know it after its already gone. Calling your representitives will not guarenttee a positive outcome but is the very best way for our members to do everthing they can to positively imfluence the outcome of habitat protection . make the calls to everyone that will listen to our habitat message. Do it now. tomorrow might very well be too late (many pheasants forever members are very active but we can and should still do more)
