Washington: Please Attend First WDFW Advisory Committee Meeting Next Week

The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) has selected the members for the “Wenas Wildlife Area Target Shooting Advisory Committee” to address the WDFW’s target shooting concerns in the Wenas Wildlife Area in Central Washington,  and has scheduled its first meeting for next Wednesday, May 17.  Please consider attending this meeting to show your strong support for recreational shooting on the public lands in the Wenas Wildlife Area in Central Washington!  Meeting details can be found below.

May 17, 2017
6:00PM
Selah Civic Center
216 S 1st St.
Selah, WA 98942

Last fall, the WDFW proposed closing the 115,000 acre Wenas Wildlife Area to recreational shooting, only allowing shooting in one of two proposed range sites.  Recreational shooting has long occurred in the wildlife area, and the use of these public lands has been enjoyed by generations of shooters from across Washington.  Thanks to the public opposition from NRA members, shooters, hunters, local legislators and elected officials, the WDFW did not move forward with their proposed closure and formed an advisory committee to help find solutions for their concerns.

An NRA liaison has been selected to serve on this committee and the interests of NRA members, shooters, and hunters will be strongly represented.  Target Shooting Committee meetings will take place at least monthly through the 2017-2018 winter season, and these meetings are open to the public, so it’s important for those who wish to preserve recreational shooting in this area to attend the meetings and show strong support!

Keeping public lands open for target shooting and hunting is a priority of your NRA and we will continue to oppose any proposals for the Wenas Wildlife Area which would restrict shooters and hunters from using public lands.
