On December 22, 2005, Governor Ed Rendell signed into law a first of its kind Bill that will give the Game Commission the authority to set up a youth mentoring program designed to get more young people out hunting and fishing.The bill is part of the Families Afield campaign. The U.S. Sportsmen’s Alliance, along with the National Wild Turkey Federation and the National Shooting Sports Foundation, introduced Families Afield in an effort to counteract the declining numbers of sportsmen by boosting the recruitment rate of young people in the outdoor sports.For more information on this act and contact information, visit the U.S. Sportsman’s Alliance web site.
