Nearly 1 Million New Jerseyans Will See Cuts to Food Assistance This Week

SPORTSMEN'S RALLY Sunday, November 3


"Attending the sportsmen's rally may well be the single thing sportsmen and sportswomen can do to secure the future of fishing, hunting, trapping, and natural resource conservation for generations to come." Anthony Mauro, Chairman, NJOA

We've witnessed it for stretches that last decades, people in political power that do not understand outdoors issues and who write laws and policies that erode our basic freedoms to fish, hunt, trap, and access the great outdoors. In fact, in 2007, there was actually a bill that would have banned freshwater fishing and hunting in New Jersey.

Sportsmen and sportswomen now have the chance to thank Governor Christie for slowing this trend, and the opportunity to reverse it during the next four years. It is possible that it could be decades before New Jersey has another governor that understands the conservation and economic benefits provided by sportsmen and women.
