Published by shootingcouncil
America is the home of large numbers and varieties of wild creatures. Yet, only a few decades ago, wildlife’s survival was very much in doubt. Early settlers harvested an abundance of wildlife, wiping out some species and reducing others to just a fraction of their original numbers.

Because of this, congress passed the act known as the Pittman-Robertson Act. It was signed into law by President Franklin D. Roosevelt on September 2, 1937. This act is now administered through the Wildlife & Sport Fish Restoration Program (WSFRP).
