It’s not every day that you get an invitation to spend time with a Cabinet member. But last month, I got the chance to talk with Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell about conservation, access, and the imperative to bring new folks into our hunting and fishing ranks.
The president recently unveiled his new budget for 2015. For hunters and anglers, it’s a good-news-bad-news scenario. Some things make perfect sense while others will leave you scratching your head.
Senators Tom Udall and Martin Heinrich of New Mexico yesterday introduced a revamped bill to designate the Organ Mountains-Desert Peak National Monument.
Freshman Senator Martin Heinrich (D-NM) is about to introduce Hunt Unrestricted on National Treasures (HUNT) Act. Again.

Heinrich is now a Senator, and one of the most passionate hunters and public-land users in Washington.
What does $10,000 get you in Wyoming? It gets you roughly 40,000 acres of prime hunting and fishing grounds through the state’s Private Lands/Public Wildlife Access Program for everyone to enjoy.
A new bill will eliminate funding for many programs vital to the fishing and hunting industry.

House Bill 235, co-sponsored by liberal Missoula representative Ellie Hill and Tea Party firebrand Kreyton Kerns of Laurel, would finally put to rest the question of whether or not hunters and recreationists can access public lands by crossing the corner where those lands intersect.
