It really is very important. People in our state don't understand the importance because we have very little public land. Our state already sold most all of our public land to the highest bidder. Now we pay $2,500 a gun to go shoot 100" deer if we can find a decent lease.

Folks out west (or whoever wants to travel) can hunt for only the cost of a tag, on millions of acres our American public lands. It needs to stay public and not be given to the states to sell off. We have the best public lands system on earth. Thanks to Teddy Roosevelt for the vision had. Otherwise we would likely be on the TX birdwatchers forum right now arguing about politics.
Blah blah blah. I truly feel sorry for you. Drive on elsewhere now.

When the U.S. government declared the Mojave desert tortoise an endangered species in 1989, it effectively marked the cattle ranchers of Nevada's Clark County for extinction. When the tortoise was listed in 1989, Las Vegas, the county seat, was one of the fastest-growing U.S. cities. For Vegas to spread even an inch farther into the tortoise-filled desert risked a federal offense under the Endangered Species Act.
Lord knows anything can happen but supposedly we are getting back to par. One of the presidents platform is to roll BLM and EPA back. Pruitt did a great drive by on EPA until he loses his mind.🤪 Now Zinke has been given the keys.....high time to drive the train thru all the beauracrats in BLM. That was the promise to NRA and SCI memberships at the conventions.

Feds haven't shown a pattern of selling off public lands. The states have. Feds don't do much right. But they handle public lands much better than the states have in the past....when it comes to keeping public lands public, and open for access to normal folk.
