Our strategy is to work together with specific entities such as government agencies, conservation organizations, and other key groups to identify issues and formalize plans to improve the quality of public land waterfowling in the areas that are important to you as a Refuge Rat.
While working with these groups in solving targeted problems, the key message we want to communicate is that the members of Team RefugeRat want a quality hunting experience.
