President Bush has issued an executive order directing federal agencies to work more diligently to facilitate increased hunting opportunities and better management of game species and their habitat. In the linked press release, NRA chief lobbyist Chris W. Cox thanks the president for his steadfast support of the nation’s hunting heritage, saying “America provides hunters with the richest opportunities anywhere in the world and is home to vast wildlife habitats coast-to-coast. The President’s order will safeguard our treasured hunting heritage for generations to come and promote programs to protect diverse lands critical for wildlife species.”
