That’s what hunters from around the country told their Senators this week as debate on the National Defense Authorization Act unfolded. A bad amendment that would have delayed conservation plans for 10 years and undercut the collaborative process that is working to save this iconic gamebird was withdrawn from debate. Your voice helped make the difference.

Here’s some of the social media buzz from the past week.

What's the threat to sportsmen's access?
