About Us

Six dedicated sportsmen got together in 1983 and formed Unified Sportsmen of Pennsylvania (USP). These six individuals were all members of Pennsylvania Federation of Sportsmen Clubs (PFSC); however, they were upset with the direction the Pennsylvania Game Commission (PGC) was handling deer management strongly supported by PFSC. In 1985 USP was incorporated.

For 38 years USP has promoted the conservation of the Commonwealth’s natural resources, abundant wildlife, and healthy ecosystems; and has a special interest and experience in the protection of wildlife from major diseases, especially CWD. USP has served the grassroots sportsmen of Pennsylvania by representing tens of thousands of sportsmen for regulatory relief and legislative help.

Without your continued support, the Unified Sportsmen would not be recognized today as the most influential sportsmen’s organization in Pennsylvania. For this reason, we ask that you continue to support USP efforts to defend and promote our rights of hunting, fishing, trapping, and shooting. If this sounds like an organization that represents your interests and beliefs, we would appreciate your support. Please visit our Membership Application page for your joining options.


The Unified Sportsmen of Pennsylvania normally distributes a quarterly publication to all members in good standing; individual, club, camp, business, etc…   However due to financial issues caused by Covid-19 we are considering changing the publication to twice a year and sending a letter the other two times a year.  In addition, we plan on starting a monthly email newsletter to members with email addresses on file.

PW&W includes articles on hot legislative sportsmen topics, what’s new on the sporting scene, land use issues, interesting hunting, and fishing stories, letters to the editor, classified ads, field notes, animal rights issues, anti issues, official USP opinions, list of USP officers, meeting times and places, membership applications, descriptions and hunting trips advertisement, anything new and exciting in the Pennsylvania outdoor world can be found in PW&W.
