  :twocents:
The organizations originally listed were those that have been up front and center fighting for our rights and freedoms; there are probably more.  They have kept us informed of nearly every piece of state and national legislation that affects our right to keep and bear arms, and to hunt.  Most of them provide fast and easy methods for all of us to communicate with our representatives in support or opposition to pending legislation. 

RMEF and MDF are good conservation organizations that have similar positions on hunting and wolves.  There are also many others that deserve similar recognition. 

Perhaps a separate list of notable conservation organizations would help the people in this forum to connect with groups of their interest. These might be national and state organizations that support and promote hunting, trapping, and wildlife management guided by sound and unbiased science.  We are also experiencing many issues with wolves in Washington and several other states.  Conservation organizations should be aligned with the use of sound and unbiased science to manage wolves and promote wolf management by the individual state wildlife agencies.  The preferred tools for wolf management should be state regulated hunting and trapping.


For example:

Hunting is conservation.

RMEF


http://www.rmef.org/Conservation/HuntingIsConservation.aspx

“Hunting Is Conservation and the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation is encouraging everyone who supports hunting to take greater pride in our legacy. Hunters and anglers were among the first crusaders for conservation and we remain today’s most important conservation leaders.”

“Man has hunted since he walked the Earth. Every early culture relied on hunting for survival.”

“Simply put, the United States has the most successful wildlife management system in the world. Hunters and anglers have contributed more financial and physical support to that system than any other group of individuals.”


MDF

http://www.muledeer.org/conservation

“MDF also believes that promoting the hunting heritage is a key ingredient to furthering our conservation objectives.”


Wolves

RMEF


http://www.rmef.org/NewsandMedia/PressRoom/PredatorManagementControl/Newsroom/RMEFPositiononWolfManagement.aspx

“In keeping with the North American Model of Wildlife Conservation, RMEF supports state-regulated hunting and trapping as the preferred tools of wolf management. RMEF staunchly supports aggressive management to balance and control wolf populations.”


MDF

https://muledeer.org/conservation/where-we-stand/ (Select wolves)

“It is the position of the MDF that the gray wolf in the northern Rocky Mountains is delisted as soon as possible and their management is transferred to the State Fish and Wildlife agencies.”
