Federal Government to Block Hunting Lands

We need to fight federal overreach and protect hunting access!

Last April, the Department of the Interior quietly announced the request to close millions of acres of federal public lands to all non-local hunters for moose and caribou. The public voiced their concern at a telephone town hall. Thanks in part to the public outcry, the DOI decided to defer pursuing this anti-hunting policy.

In a new press release this week, the DOI announced another telephone meeting to receive public input to pursue the same anti-hunting policy that could close 60 million acres of public land to hunting.

Defend Public Lands

Nothing has changed regarding the specifics of this terrible proposal, except that the restrictive measure is now being considered for 2022.

More pushes for federal land “closures” are popping up with increasing frequency in Alaska and around the country.

We need you to call and voice your concern about Wildlife Special Action Request 21-01 (WSA21-01) to help protect our hunting access and fight federal overreach.

    Those are public lands and should not be closed to hunting or any activities for thet matter. Keep all federal lands open.

    Keep Federal lands open to non-locals to hunting.
    We the People are Federal.

    This does not need to happen anywhere!

    The hunting lands should NOT be closed or changed. Hunting is good animal population control and food source for many.

    Absolutely not! We as Americans are public land owners and they have ZERO right to take this right away from us

      To you in the federal government, do you really think you can make it illegal to hunt on our own property ? You are definitely out of touch.

    Someone needs to educate the ignorant masses on what the hunting community does for wildlife and habitat conservation which nobody else comes close to doing not just here but worldwide.

    Do not allow the govt we have now to do ANYTHING!! they want to control us and that ain’t gonna happen. My husband, my Dad before he passed and most people I know out here in the great State of Utah are hunters! The tide seems to be turning a little bit but elections won’t stop those bureaucrats even if they defy the President…they don’t care.
    Good hunting my friends

    I will be making that call. Having trouble with the forest service here in Arizona. They keep closing roads that have been open for generations. I am disabled and and can not walk the roads. What upsets me. People with horses and bicycles are still allowed. Why is this. Plus I can not ride a horse or bicycle, do to health reasons. I called them and they did not care that they are discriminating against the disabled. I’m getting sick of losing our PUBLIC LAND.

    Here in New Jersey I learned that the Sierra club with other anti groups are pushing to close our Deleware water gap national recreation lands (DWGNRA) to hunting, this large span encomposing the NorthWest portion in NJ. is one of our last remote area’s in the region, I grew up hunting in the DWG for deer, turkey and pheasant, they want to designate the DWG. as a state park, this is just a clear attack on our hunting heritage.
