AmmoLand
Bill numbers change but the mission of the Congressional Sportsmen's Foundation and its valued conservation partners does not. S.405, titled The Bipartisan Sportsmen’s Act of 2015, was introduced on Feb. 5, by Congressional Sportsmen's Caucus members. "The Bipartisan Sportsman's Act is not only an access bill, but also a way to promote economic growth in our country. Sportsmen and women across the country spend billions of dollars each year on outdoor activities. In Alaska alone, there are more than 125,000 individuals who engage in hunting each year. This economic activity not only helps local communities but aids conservation efforts as well," said Senator Murkowski, R-Ark.

How to hunt mountain goats
Outdoor Life
They cling to craggy cliffs. They stick landings on tiny jags of slippery shale. And they endure endless winters in the high, wind-strafed roof of the continent. They're mountain goats, and hunting them requires the gear and determination of a mountaineer, the lungs of a Sherpa and the balance of a gymnast. Ounce for ounce, mountain goats are the toughest, most athletic and least appreciated of North America's game animals. And they live in the continent's most formidable and achingly beautiful real estate.

Don't let your shooting skills get rusty
By Ken Jolly
We all know people who buy a gun for home defense, load it and lock it away with the sure certainty that it will fire when needed most. These firearms should have been cleaned, broken in and tested with their choice of self-defense ammunition. Locked up, they collect dust and the lubrication dries up. Just like your gun, your shooting skills can get rusty if you leave them on the shelf for too long. I try to stress to my CHL students the need for continuing practice.
