WE SUPPORT SPORTSMEN’S RIGHT TO RECREATE
We actively participate in supporting and promoting sportsmen’s opportunity and right to recreate here in Montana. Over the past 30 years Russ has served on several committees dealing with issues pertaining to sportsmen’s opportunity. He was instrumental in helping to secure “Stream Access” in the early 80’s on Montana streams and rivers. Most recently, he served on the State River Recreation Advisory Council representing the outfitting industry and ultimately the non-resident sportsman.
The Montana Outfitter and Guides Association, which Russ was the President of in 2010 & 2011 is the organization that leads the charge for retaining sportsmen’s opportunity for non-resident. Through it’s MOGA Hunter Angler Defense Fund Program you have a voice in these important matters. MOGA Members, its Executive Director or Lobbyist attends and works for equitable opportunity at all levels from grassroots committee’s, to the Montana Fishing Wildlife and Parks Commission meetings or to the Montana State Legislation. Your donation is greatly appreciated and will help fund MHADF Program.
