Support hunting at Camo at the Capitol
In order to keep our hunting traditions viable, we as hunters need to stay involved in the process. The Wyoming Wildlife Federation is organizing an event in February to help us do just that.
Mark your calendar for Feb. 2, and plan to be in Cheyenne for the Wyoming Wildlife Federation’s Camo at the Capitol event. The Federation has put together a slate of events that will help you make your voice heard by the legislators when it comes to issues that can affect your access and ability to hunt.
It starts with Advocacy Training from 9 a.m. to noon in the Cottonwood Room at the Laramie County Library, where you’ll learn about the legislative process, including bill creation, tracking, and how a bill passes or doesn’t make it to a law. You’ll have the chance to not only learn the necessary skills for communicating with lawmakers – you’ll also get the chance to speak directly with elected officials about the bills they are supporting or opposing that deal with the hunting and fishing community.
Then after the provided lunch, from 1 to 4 p.m., you’ll move over to the State Capitol for a tour and lobbying training.
The day wraps up with a Legislative Reception at the Cheyenne Botanic Gardens from 6:30 to 9 p.m. This is where you’ll meet with legislators and wildlife managers and learn about the issues that matter to you. They’ll be serving wild game dishes along with Wyoming beers and spirits.
Don’t miss this opportunity to make your voice heard. Again, it’s February 2, starting at the Cottonwood Room at the Laramie County Library at 9 a.m. It’s free to attend, but you’ll want to RSVP on the Wyoming Wildlife Federation website at wyomingwildlife.org. Find the Camo at the Capitol link, click it, and enter your information.
I hope to see you there in February!
