This past October, the California chapter of Backcountry Hunters and Anglers joined a group of California sportsman organizations and dozens of other stakeholders to review the first draft of the states R3 program which has been worked on over the past 6 months.
It's awesome to see so many wanting to be involved and being led by an incredible team at the California Department of Fish and Wildlife who are dedicated to improving opportunities for hunters and anglers in California. Members of the California chapter have been participating in the California Departments of Fish and Wildlife's R3 Initiative during the entire process.
On October 25th the Department gathered all the stakeholders who participated in the initial development process and provided the initial draft of the plan during a working session where comments and suggestions were submitted. The California Chapter of Backcountry Hunters and Anglers is proud to be a part of the process and look forward to assisting in finalizing the plan before the year is up.
