New business group out to spread word about economic impact and benefits of hunting


MEADVILLE — The following is what HWFPA is and what it hopes to achieve:

Mission: Hunting Works for Pennsylvania exists to promote the strong economic partnership between the hunting and shooting communities and the local economy of Pennsylvania.

Who We Are: Our membership consists of businesses representing a cross-section of the Pennsylvania economy. These include sporting retailers big and small, restaurant owners, hotel, motel and resort operators, gas stations and convenience owners, hunting and shooting organizations, chambers of commerce and of course all the taxpayers of Pennsylvania (hunters and non-hunters alike) who benefit economically and aesthetically from the license fees, taxes and jobs the hunting and shooting industry provides both directly and indirectly.

What We Do: HWFPA advocates for public policy that supports jobs and economic prosperity. As a grassroots organization, we help tell the story of the role hunting and shooting sports play in both the heritage and economic health of Pennsylvania.

What we believe: Our partners have a story to tell about the important economic chain involving hunting and shooting sports that support many jobs, both rural and urban, across the state of Pennsylvania. We believe that communication is important. Hunters and shooters face an ever increasing number of challenges today. Public policy decisions that impact hunting and shooting ultimately impact Pennsylvania jobs. Hunting Works For Pennsylvania serves as a vehicle to facilitate this important public policy dialogue and to tell the story about preservation and conservation and jobs.
