CONGRESSIONAL SPORTSMEN'S FOUNDATION
FOUNDED: 1989 | HEADQUARTERS: WASHINGTON D.C.
Jeff Crane, President
Headquartered in Washington, DC just steps from the U.S. Capitol, CSF's sole focus is providing access and a voice for sportsmen in the U.S. Congress, the Administration and federal land management agencies, as well as state legislatures across the country. With support from every major hunting and fishing organization and industry, CSF is the leader in promoting sportsmen's issues with elected officials.
National Assembly of Sportsmen's Caucuses
The National Assembly of Sportsmen's Caucuses (NASC) serves as the umbrella organization for launching and working with state legislative sportsmen's caucuses in state legislatures.
Providing a communications network and interaction among state legislators, sportsmen's groups, industry and media, NASC and state sportsmen's caucuses are the core of the legislative front protecting and promoting hunting, fishing and wildlife management in state legislatures.
Together, CSF and NASC provide the ultimate protection against legislative attacks on hunting and fishing and deliver results for the advancement of sportsmen's interests in the political arena.
Reports & Data
Recognizing the need to provide policy makers, media and the sportsmen's community with accurate and compelling information on hunting and fishing, CSF produces reports and public opinion surveys aimed at advancing a pro-sportsmen's agenda in the political arena.
Economic Impact Report
Every five years in conjunction with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Survey on hunters and anglers, CSF produces a report on the economic impact hunters and anglers have on the economy. This information is vital in helping policy makers, media and the public better understand the impact hunting and fishing activities have on the national and local economy as well as their size as a constituency.
To bring attention to the influential power of hunters and anglers as a constituency, every presidential election CSF undertakes public opinion polling of sportsmen to outline key issues, how sportsmen's issues rank in priority to other national issues and how important sportsmen's issues are in determining who they vote for and the likelihood of them voting in the upcoming election.
To continue to succeed in developing issue briefs and advancing a pro-sportsmen's agenda in state capitols, state legislators need to have reliable information at their fingertips that is easy to understand and put into context. To meet this need, the National Assembly of Sportsmen's Caucuses produces state reports with essential findings from the best surveys and data available to serve as a central and unifying source of information.
