Oregon Alliance to Protect Hunting and Fishing

The Oregon Alliance to Protect Hunting and Fishing is a coalition of hunters, anglers, small businesses, and sportsmen organizations who oppose any effort to mandate a California-style ban on the use of lead in traditional ammunition. Our goal is to protect and defend hunters’ and sport shooters’ the type of ammunition that works best for them. 

Oregon relies on hunters and anglers to fund wildlife conservation, and the best available research says that a California-style lead ban could result in up to 60% fewer hunters taking to the field. This reduction would have a dramatic impact on Oregon’s ability to preserve fish and wildlife.

Furthermore, Oregon receives millions of dollars from the federal government from excise taxes on the sale of firearms and ammunition. With fewer hunters going out to hunt, these excise taxes will be reduced and wildlife funding from the federal government will deteriorate.
