Sportsman Access Program
Connected to the Land. Committed to Conservation.
Hunters and anglers were among the first to crusade for wildlife protection and remain some of today’s most important conservation leaders. Recognizing the importance of North Carolina’s hunting heritage, The Land Trust has developed an initiative to connect sportsman and sportswomen to local conservation: the Sportsman Access Program.
Since the spring of 2017, The Land Trust’s Sportsman Access Program (SAP) has allowed SAP members to access Land Trust-owned property for hunting. This permit draw system, much like the permitted system used by most state wildlife agencies, allows SAP members to select specific dates for a chance to hunt dove, deer, feral hog, waterfowl, or turkey on Land Trust-owned property. When a member is drawn, they acquire private hunting access on a designated section of Land Trust-owned property for up to a week. Dues garnered from sportsman memberships will be utilized for conservation funding.
