About

Since 1989 the Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation (CSF) has maintained a singleness of purpose that has guided the organization to become the most respected and trusted sportsmen’s organization in the political arena. CSF’s mission is to work with Congress, governors, and state legislatures to protect and advance hunting, angling, recreational shooting and trapping.

The unique and collective force of the Congressional Sportsmen’s Caucus (CSC), the Governors Sportsmen’s Caucus (GSC) and the National Assembly of Sportsmen’s Caucuses (NASC), working closely with CSF, serves as an unprecedented network of pro-sportsmen elected officials that advance the agenda of America’s hunters and anglers.

CSF’s stature as the sportsmen’s leader on policy issues has steadily grown through active involvement within the hunting and fishing conservation community, including staff leadership and engagement in the American Wildlife Conservation Partners (AWCP), Council to Advance Hunting and Shooting Sports (CHASS), National Fish Habitat Partnership Board (NFHP) and FishNet at the national level, the Western Governors Association (WAG) GetOut West! Advisory Group, Families Afield and the Sunday Hunting Coalition at the state level.

Additionally, CSF is the only organization represented on the four federally chartered advisory councils (FAC) dealing with hunting and recreational fishing – the Wildlife and Hunting Heritage Conservation Council (WHHCC), the Sport Fishing and Boating Partnership Council (SFBPC), the Marine Protected Areas (MPA FAC) and the Marine Fisheries Advisory Committee (MFAC).
