The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service oversees some 150 million acres of land in the National Wildlife Refuge System. Over the past couple of years, we've seen hundreds of thousands of acres in the refuge system opened to public hunting and fishing. And while Ashe can't take all of the direct credit for that, it must be noted that the Director carries a lot of clout in those decisions. And Ashe has almost universally supported every single instance in which Refuge lands were recommended to be opened for hook-and-bullet pursuits.
