Calling Greater and Lesser Prairie Chicken Hunters!

Lesser Prairie Chicken

Lesser Prairie Chicken

SCI is currently evaluating five lawsuits, filed in various federal courts, concerning the listing of the lesser prairie-chicken (LPC) and related issues.  With the listing of the species on May 12, 2014, the hunting of LPC in Kansas (the only state to allow such hunting) ended.  In addition, Kansas shut down greater prairie-chicken (GPC) hunting in areas of Kansas where its range overlapped with LPC.

While SCI has not yet made a decision whether or not to get involved in any of the lawsuits, we want to gauge our members’ interest in past and future hunting of LPC and GPC.  If SCI decides to get involved in a case, we will have to demonstrate that our members have interests in hunting the two species that were harmed by the listing of the LPC.

If you have hunted LPC or GPC in Kansas in the past and would do so again, if legal, please contact Doug Burdin, Litigation Counsel at dburdin@safariclub.org  as soon as possible.  Please provide some details of your experience and interest in hunting these species.
