About Atlantic County Federation of Sportsmen
The Alantic County Chapter is a Federation of Sportsmen's Clubs from throughout the county. We represent hundreds of hunters, trappers and fishermen in the area. We are firm believers in our methods of wildlife control. We provide directions on ways to save out natural resources such as wetlands, forests, farmlands and to fight pollution. This is a key to those who enjoy the outdoors as we do and wish to pass it on to our children.
The purpose of the Federation at our level the benefits that we offer to members are outlined below.
The monthly meetings are used to disseminate information and gather the feelings of members for issues affecting our sports. Usually a Fish & Game Council member and a Division of Fish and Wildlife employee attend our meetings. Progress of proposed legislation is discussed. Issues such as license fees, trout stocking, game seasons, limits, and wildlife management are discussed. Direct input from members is encouraged. We are proud of the positive impact our organization has had on the management of our natural resources.
Individual members are able to secure a $1,000,000 personal liability policy that covers the member while hunting, fishing or trapping anywhere in the U.S. or Canada. Coverage includes legal use of bow and arrow and firearm for target shooting either in practice or competition. All members are eligible to hold office in the Federation or to run for positions on the Fish and Game Council.
The Atlantic County Federation has sponsored the FAA Tech Center Hunt and The Second Tag Same Day code change.
