How You Can Help End Canned Hunting in Maine
Written by MFOA   
Tuesday, 21 October 2008

· Become knowledgeable about the issue. 

· Many hunters consider ‘Canned Hunting’ unethical and contrary to the image of Maine’s hunting heritage and fair chase traditions.  The campaign is actively getting names of hunters who support the ban. If you know of any hunters who may want to sign up for the ban, please get their signatures and addresses (and what type of hunting they do), and send their names to MFOA.

· If you do not know your legislators, find them below and contact them.

For your State Senator:

For your State Representative:

A letter to the legislator’s home is most effective as legislators do generally listen to their constituents. In January, when the legislature convenes, place a follow-up call and/or email to legislators. Your letter should be concise and courteous while stressing the issues, and ending with a request of support for upcoming legislation to ban canned hunting.  

· Write a Letter-to-the-Editor for your local newspaper. Read your newspaper policies as most have a limit on the length, such as 250 words. It can be similar to what you wrote your legislators. 

· Contact the MFOA office or District Coordinator in your area (visit to learn how you can help the ‘Ban Canned Hunting in Maine’ campaign. MFOA can provide you with materials to schedule a tabling event in your community, at country fairs, community gatherings, political events, etc. Help us get the word out. 

· Hold a fundraising event. Campaigns have financial needs. MFOA will provide a representative from the campaign to speak at any event you schedule. 

· Copy our Canned Hunting Fact Sheet and pass out to friends, neighbors and associates. Also, encourage people to go to the MFOA website to learn how they can get involved. 

· Register online to get MFOA ‘Action Alerts’ to follow the campaign and stay updated.  

· Join us in our press conference and awareness demonstration this fall. If you are interested in attending an event or becoming involved, please let us know at This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it .
