WHAT IS THE SPORTSMEN'S FORUM?
MOHA hosts a series of meetings with the Sportsmen's Caucus focused on natural resource management and outdoor recreation issues during each legislative session. MOHA sits down with legislators and members of the public to discuss these issues and potential bills pertaining to them.

What is the Sportsman's Caucus?
Officially recognized by the NASC (National Assembly of Sportsmens Caucuses) and the CSF (Congressional Sportsmens Foundation), the Sportsmen's Caucus is a bipartisan group of legislators from both the MN Senate and House who have an interest in issues that are important to the sportsmen and sportswomen of Minnesota.
Caucus membership requires a legislator to sign a general statement in support of hunting and fishing traditions. As a member of the Caucus, a legislator will attend at least 2 caucus meetings during the legislative session and one outdoor-associated banquet during the year. Members are not bound to particular votes, however.
The Sportsmen Caucus meets bi-weekly with MOHA to gather support for key issues. During the general session, the Sportsmen's Caucus provides an opportunity for sportsmen and sportswomen to come together with MN Legislators to discuss issues important to hunting and fishing communities.
All MOHA member groups are encouraged to participate in Sportsmen's Forum meetings.
