Where Hunting Happens, Conservation Happens™

About Boone and Crockett Club - Advocacy

From the very beginning Boone and Crockett members have worked to make change through legislation that benefits wildlife and habitat. Theodore Roosevelt once said, "Wildlife and its habitat cannot speak, so we must and we will." Powerful words we still live by today.

Boone and Crockett Club members and staff can sometimes be found on Capitol Hill where they work for permanent solutions to conservation problems. It all started with Boone and Crockett Club founder Theodore Roosevelt. He used his executive powers as the 26th U.S president to not just quadruple the amount of protected land in our nation, but plant the ideas that blossomed into the most successful wildlife conservation effort the world had ever seen. From legislation that placed limits on the amount of game one could legally take to the conception and execution of the North American Model of Wildlife Conservation, the Boone and Crockett Club has always been the tip of the legislative spear. 

Today, the Boone and Crockett Club continues that legacy by supporting programs that put conservation, shooting sports and hunting at the forefront. To learn more about our conservation advocacy, explore the links below.
