How public funds benefit shooters
Outdoor Life
The Pittman-Robertson Act was signed into law by President Franklin Roosevelt in 1937 and has been a main engine for funding wildlife conservation in the United States. The PR Act, as it is known, levies a 10-11 percent tax on the sale of ammunition, firearms and outdoors equipment, and has garnered more than $2 billion since its inception. Not all sportsmen realize, however, that PR funds also go toward hunter education and, by extension, toward public shooting ranges.

Interactions of goats, man studied at park
The Olympian
Take a hike at Glacier National Park's Logan Pass and you're almost guaranteed to see mountain goats. You'll probably spot a bighorn sheep or two as well. The goats often can be found near or on the Hidden Lake Overlook Trail and they don't seem to shy away from visitors. Glacier hasn't had any bighorn sheep or mountain goat attacks. However, in 2010, hiker Robert Boardman was gored to death by a mountain goat in Olympic National Park. Glacier National Park — along with the University of Montana, Wildlife Conservation Society, and Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks — recently launched a study looking at interactions between humans and mountain goats and sheep and how they affect the animals.
