IT’S TIME TO DO MORE THAN JUST KEEP IT PUBLIC
INDIVIDUAL SPORTSMEN AND COUNTING
From high mountain basins to sage benches and badlands, and from river corridors to forests of pine and juniper, America’s 438 million acres of Bureau of Land Management and U.S. Forest Service public lands are some of the best places to hunt and fish on the planet. This is sportsmen’s country, and as true citizens of the outdoors, we have a responsibility to speak up the future of our public lands and hunting and fishing traditions.
Right now, decision makers in Washington, D.C., are attempting to rewrite the rules on how our public lands are managed. Unless sportsmen and women get involved, habitat safeguards for fish and game species could be eliminated and our hunting and fishing access and opportunities could be diminished.
Don’t let this happen. Speak up today for balanced multiple-use management of our public lands that supports habitat conservation and our outdoor traditions.
Imagine your favorite hunting or fishing destination on public lands—the one you dream about in the off-season and can’t get enough of when the season is open. Now think of that place being transformed into an industrialized landscape full of heavy machinery, dust, and noise. Unless lawmakers understand the need to manage public lands in a balanced way, that’s what could happen in some of America’s finest sporting destinations.
Only we can ensure that sportsmen’s country remains a hunting and fishing paradise. It’s not enough to simply keep it public—we need responsible management of our public lands to ensure a positive future for hunting, fishing, and our way of life.
