About Us

The California Legislature Outdoor Sporting Caucus is affiliated with and modeled after the Congressional Sportsmen’s Caucus, the largest caucus in the U.S. Congress. It is also one of 48 state sportsmen's caucuses formed to date, whose membership currently stands at about 2,000 state legislators.

Specifically, the purpose of the Outdoor Sporting Caucus is:

  • To preserve and promote the traditional rights of California citizens to hunt, fish, and pursue outdoor, wildlife related activities.
  • To ensure that California sportsmen and women have reasonable access to public lands to enjoy outdoor pursuits.
  • To protect the investment of sportsmen and women in wildlife and fisheries management by safeguarding the integrity of user-fee trust funds and license revenue.
  • To support efforts to enhance multiple-use habitat management for wildlife and fisheries.
  • To recognize the importance of hunting, fishing, and other outdoor activities to our state's economy, and habitat conservation funding streams, and to support the maintenance and growth of outdoor-related industries and activities.
  • To address threats to California wildlife and their habitat.
