The Council consists of 18 discretionary members – appointed by the Secretary of the Interior and the Secretary of Agriculture – and 7 non-voting, ex officio members representing six Federal agencies (the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Bureau of Land Management, National Park Service, U.S. Forest Service, Natural Resources Conservation Service, and the Farm Service Agency) and the Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies.

The Council’s primary goal is to provide recommendations to the Secretaries to promote and preserve America’s wildlife and hunting heritage for future generations.
