Mercer County Federation of Sportsmen Clubs

Dedicated to Promoting Better Outdoor Recreation and Cooperation
between the Farmers and Sportsmen since 1932

The Pennsylvania Federation of Sportsmen’s Clubs was founded February 11, 1932 by five fishermen who were disturbed by the increasing pollution of Pennsylvania’s streams and rivers. Angered by the political meddling in the independent Fish Commission and Game Commission activities, these founders overcame the economic hardships of the Post-Depression era and organized several scattered sportsmen’s clubs across the state into one strong, efficient organization. Today, the PFSC still believes in the core value of “Resource First.” We have earned a great deal of respect from our legislators and resource agencies over the years. Even with the current trends of declining hunter and angler numbers, and funding sources shrinking, we still have substantial clout in the political arena and with our resource agencies, and continue to work to meet our mission to ensure proper protection of our wildlife resources, the habitat, our outdoor heritage and our 2nd Amendment Rights.

Conservation Pledge

I give my pledge as an American to save and faithfully defend from waste the natural resources of my country – Its air, soil, minerals, forests, waters and wildlife.
