Old Milwaukee has partnered with the Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership to help promote issues that are important to our community—among them, working to keep sportsmen’s access to public lands intact.

America’s 640 million acres of national public lands – including our national forests and Bureau of Land Management lands – provide hunting and fishing opportunities to millions of Americans. They represent the uniquely American values of freedom and adventure that are the envy of the world.

This is particularly true in the West, where, according to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, 72 percent of sportsmen depend on access to public lands for hunting. Without these vast expanses of prairie and sagebrush, foothills and towering peaks, the traditions of hunting and fishing as we have known them for more than a century would be lost.
