At the Congressional Sportsmen's Foundation, we believe regular interaction with pro-sportsmen elected leaders is a key component of protecting and advancing hunting, angling, recreational shooting and trapping opportunities. To accomplish this, CSF works with members of the Congressional Sportsmen's Caucus (CSC), the Governors Sportsmen's Caucus (GSC) and the National Assembly of Sportsmen's Caucuses (NASC).

In doing so, CSF’s goal is to help educate elected officials on sportsmen's issues, thus ensuring sportsmen and women have their voices heard throughout the halls of government. CSF accomplishes this in many ways; for example, CSF’s outdoor and legislative issue-related events expose federal and state policy-makers to hunting, angling, recreational shooting and trapping, as well as the issues that impact those activities.
