basic understanding of wildlife law and policy is essential knowledge for anyone who aspires to work in wildlife management and other natural resource fields. Now, for the first time, students and professionals have all the information they need in one comprehensive volume. 

Since its founding in 1887, the Boone and Crockett Club has been a major force for laws and policies to secure the future of North America’s wildlife and wild places. The Club’s contributions run like indelible threads throughout the fabric of North America’s conservation history. It is most fitting that this comprehensive treatise was conceived and created by the Boone and Crockett Club.

The book begins by examining the need for, and history of, wildlife policy and law; wildlife and gun ownership; wildlife law enforcement; constitutional authorities and jurisdictions; how laws and policies are made; statutory law and agency rule-making; relationships of Indigenous peoples to natural resources; and subsistence resource use. Building on this foundation are detailed sections addressing: 

  • The North American Model of Wildlife Conservation
  • Jurisdictions in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico with detailed coverage of key federal laws
  • The roles of state and provincial agencies, Native American tribes, and conservation organizations
  • International wildlife conservation 
  • Policy jobs in conservation 
  • Roles of politics, professionals, and the public 

The book’s extensive coverage makes it an excellent reference for anyone interested in natural resource management, public policy, or environmental law.
