HR621 was introduced last week with the goal to eliminate 3.3 million acres of public land. People of all different walks of life with all different political views have mobilized to try to stop this bill. While one person might want to hunt on the land, an anti-hunter might want that land protected to aid in the stabilization of an endangered species. You know a bill is bad when ranchers and mining companies don’t like it (remember they already get access to some of these lands for pennies on the dollar.)
If you don’t have any previous knowledge of what this is all about, please take three minutes to watch this video:
If you use public lands for any sort of recreation please contact your representatives and tell them to vote this down! If you fish or hunt, please consider joining Backcountry Hunters and Anglers. If you do not, please consider an organization like the Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership.
