Congressman Ron Kind

Representing the 3rd District of Wisconsin

Sportsman

There is nothing I enjoy more than spending an early morning with my two sons sitting in a duck blind or on the river with a fishing pole in hand, and I have worked hard to protect the rights of hunters and anglers across the country to pass the sporting tradition on to future generations. I am a longtime member of the Congressional Sportsmens Caucus and have previously served as both the vice chair and co-chair of the caucus.
