Life Members and Annual Members with five consecutive years of membership should have received their ballots for this year’s NRA elections last week. If you received a ballot in your February NRA magazine, you are eligible to vote. If you didn’t, you probably aren’t a Voting Member. If you believe you are eligible to vote in NRA elections, and you did not receive a ballot, you can contact the NRA Secretary’s Office to verify your membership status and request a ballot.

Hunting facts conservation NSSF infographics

The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) has developed a series of infographics to help the public, particularly non-hunters, better understand hunting and hunters. According to the NSSF, nearly 80 percent of today’s population approves of legal hunting, yet misunderstanding of hunting and hunters persists. These NSSF infographics help explain how wildlife is strategically managed with regulations, seasons and permit rules, all with hunters’ support. Hunters also directly support land preservation via programs financed through licensing fees and firearms excise taxes.
