What This is All About
"To waste, to destroy our natural resources, to skin and exhaust the land instead of using it so as to increase it's usefulness, will result in undermining in the days of our children the very prosperity which we ought by right to hand down to them amplified and developed." This message was delivered by our 26th president, Mr. Theodore "Teddy" Roosevelt, who was a pioneer in the modern conservation movement, both for wildlife and the environment. Under him, our country saw the creation of the US Forest Service, 5 National Parks, 150 National Forests and the founding of the Boone & Crockett Club. Thanks to his, and many others, contributions, we are able to enjoy countless things we take for granted everyday, including but not limited to: increasing big game animal populations, pristine mountain lakes, waterfowl-covered tidal marshes, trails to the middle of nowhere and abundant public land. As the days, weeks, months and hopefully years pass, this site will highlight the efforts of those who continue to carry the conservationism torch.
According to the NRA, it is estimated that 18 million hunters take to the field each year in search of their favorite game animal. From fast-paced wing shooting on the Mississippi Flyway to the thunderous bugle of a herd bull elk in the Rocky Mountains, hunters continue to make new memories and create new dreams every time they are able to get away from everyday life. Hike, Hunt and Fish will keep you in the know for all things hunting, whether that includes the latest world record contender or important new laws and regulations.
