Easements, small land acquisitions and inventorying public land shouldn’t be controversial issues, but it is an election year. Who knows how this will shake out. On the upside, there are no gimmicks or ulterior motives that I can see here. Likewise, there is no good reason to oppose this legislation, unless you want to keep the public off the land its tax dollars support. Time after time, we hear that folks are hanging up their rods and rifles because they can’t find a spot to hunt or fish anymore. If we want the outdoor life to continue, we’re going to have to make some investments in our future. The HUNT Act is a good investment in that legacy.
