Frequently Asked Questions

  • What has NRA-ILA done for hunters?

    Defending hunting has always been part of the NRA mission. The NRA fights to preserve and promote America’s rich hunting heritage at the federal, state and local levels, including Right to Hunt and Fish state constitutional amendments, policies assuring no net loss of public land open to hunting, mentoring programs for new hunters, hunter safety training programs, range development programs, the use of firearm sound suppressors, and the repeal of laws that prohibit hunting on Sunday.


  • What services does the NRA provide for hunters?

    In addition to continually fighting for hunters rights, the NRA has established several programs to support hunters, such as the Youth Hunter Education Challenge, NRA Outdoors, and the Women’s Wilderness Escape. Click here to learn more.

  • Where can I find more hunting related content?

    NRA's American Hunter magazine for outdoors men and women is the most popular -- and largest circulation -- all-hunting magazine in the world, with nearly one million readers. Offering expertise on how and where to hunt all types of North American game, the magazine encourages readers to take advantage of the rich opportunities most Americans take for granted and to pass along the tradition to the next generation. Reviews of hunting equipment and services, as well as coverage of legislative and political developments of interest to hunters, are highlights in each issue. 

    The NRA Hunter Leadership Forum is also leading the offensive against violent anti-hunting extremists by sharing social media content that promotes positive pro-hunting messaging and informs hunters of attacks against us as they arise.


Established in 1975, the Institute for Legislative Action (ILA) is the "lobbying" arm of the National Rifle Association of America. ILA is responsible for preserving the right of all law-abiding individuals in the legislative, political, and legal arenas, to purchase, possess and use firearms for legitimate purposes as guaranteed by the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
