Presidents Message: April 2017

With Spring upon us, the small game season has come to a close. Now we can anticipate the strutting and gobbling of Spring turkey and a new year of excitement for our sportsmen and women. As the weather increasingly brings forth a new season of growth and warmth, it also brings forth youth events and activities.

The saying “Our Youth Is Our Future” still holds true and will be a mainstay as time goes on. Plan a youth event, take a child hunting or fishing or just introduce them to the great outdoors. The League of Kentucky Sportsmen offers Casting and Squirrel Riffle competitions across the commonwealth. If your child has not been involved in the past, contact the League office or a sportsman’s club near you and inquire about getting your child or other youth involved. These and other programs offered by League clubs has and will continue to make a difference in the lives of our youth.

If you are not a member of or know a local club that is not a member of the League,  join and encourage them to join and offer these free programs to local youth as a League member club.

The League will continue to work closely with the Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources to ensure that your concerns as sportsmen and women across the Commonwealth are voiced and taken seriously. We will also continue to monitor legislation and oppose anti hunting, trapping and fishing groups and legislation.

Be an active part of keeping the tradition alive and well, our future as sportsmen depends on you, the sportsman, and your level of involvement. Join today and become a part of an organization that has, and will continue to be not only “The Voice of the Sportsmen”, but an organization comprised or sportsmen and women with a passion to build on our future and resources across this great Commonwealth.
