Sportsmen to Candidates – Protect Bristol Bay

This week, DSC joined with  over 40 organizations and companies representing millions of sportsmen and outdoor enthusiasts to ask the 2016 Presidential candidates in both parties one simple question.

 We need to know where you stand on the proposed Pebble Mine in Bristol Bay, Alaska… and we need to know now.

 Many of us in the outdoor recreation world have spent the better part of the last decade working to protect one of the world’s premiere salmon fisheries. But the issue is still unsettled. We need to know where our next President stands on this important issue.

Ben Carter, Executive Director, of the Dallas Safari Club, today said, “Bristol Bay is one of the last places on the face of the earth for the remote wilderness hunting we treasure, and allowing mining of this scale would end that experience forever. One thing that absolutely unifies and galvanizes the sporting community is opposition to the Pebble Mine.”
