In June, Safari Club International’s (SCI) Michigan Chapters working in conjunction with the Citizens for Professional Wildlife Management (CPWM) submitted 374,000 signatures of Michigan voters to the Secretary of State in support of the SFWCA. Every citizen who signed the petition did so with the expectation that the legislature would vote on this Act.

It is imperative that ALL Michigan hunters contact as many state senators as possible IMMEDIATELY to ask them to support sound scientific management by SUPPORTING the Scientific Fish & Wildlife Conservation Act on Wednesday, August 13th
Out-of-state radical anti-hunting groups, led by the Humane Society of the United States, have launched two referendum drives in Michigan seeking to overrule Michigan’s wildlife biologists on game management decisions. With their deep pockets, they know that once they get on a statewide ballot, it’s just a matter of spending millions of dollars in misleading advertising. They are currently trying the same strategy in Maine, just as they tried it here in 1996 and in 2006. Without this citizen-initiated legislation, fish and game decisions made by our state’s birdhuntingfirstforhunters030614professional wildlife biologists will be subject to endless expensive referendums run by out-of-state activists.
The bipartisan Natural Resources Commission was created in 1922 to separate conservation from politics. In 1996, the people of Michigan voted to give the NRC exclusive authority to issue game orders and required that it use sound science. This initiative makes sure that fish and game decisions can be made by the only public body in Michigan required by the people to use sound science: the Natural Resources Commission.

The Scientific Fish & Wildlife Conservation Act would

  • Ensure that decisions affecting the taking of fish and game are made using principles of sound scientific fish and wildlife management;
  • Provide for free hunting, fishing and trapping licenses for active members of the military, and;
  • Provide appropriations for fisheries management activities within Michigan necessary for rapid response, prevention, control and/or elimination of aquatic invasive species, including Asian carp.
