Why South Dakota Needs a Camo CoalitionSouth Dakota, like other
states, is experiencing a decline in resident hunters and fishermen/women. While
small in comparison to other states, this decline could challenge our ability to
assure that the outdoor activities that we have long enjoyed will be maintained
in the future.
Our landscape is changing as well, as more and more people are removed from the rural lives of the past to urban/suburban lifestyles. A direct attachment to the land and its wildlife and other natural resources is more removed with each generation.
Competition for money, time and resources will increase. Pressures from all directions will seek to influence how those resources are expended.
In the political arena today you must stand up and be counted and your voices must be heard.
South Dakota Wildlife Federation Camo Coalition
The Role of the CoalitionWe commit to monitoring current issues facing South Dakota's natural resources and your opportunity to hunt and fish in our state. As issues arise that need your attention, we will send action alerts that will provide the facts to you so you can voice your opinion to the appropriate decision makers.
The Role of Our MembersAs members of the Coalition, we ask two things of you:
- Respond to the action alerts. We will make the process as
easy as possible. Don't be fooled into thinking that your voice won't make
a difference. It will!
- Spread the word. Contact all of your fellow sportsmen and encourage them to join. For this coalition to be effective, we need thousands of active members. The only way that can happen is with your help.
