    To a serious pronghorn nut like me, seems what the map is showing is that the core Wyoming pronghorn ranges of Units 57, 58, 60, and 61, are being served up in the name of "Energy Independence" so we can export energy to other countries and do so at some subsidized, low level accommodation for wildlife, so to make US-sourced energy exports competitive with energy extracted from Third World dictatorships and Oligarchs.

    Gee, that makes me feel so good - said no hunter ever.

    Outdoor Life sure has it's great articles and it's interesting ones... We gravitate to the article that fit our agenda and distance ourselves from articles within the same magazine (Shockey, Modern hunting's most influential Hunter)...

    With reference to what this thread is about... Well, heck, no sense following that. Threads go their own way.

    Public figures are and will always be in the crosshairs of scrutiny by some and praised by others. BHA is among those that are trenching in. And Zinke is among those building support in his own manner.
    "Elitists" holds a certain bearing though a bit too far from my perspective as a member. It's becoming less and less about "Backcountry" and more and more political. Unfortunately, the more political the more divisive. The more it builds members w/in one party and the more it removes members within another. An interesting balancing act for any environmental advocacy group.

    Still wondering your take on this, as someone from Utah. Still just genuinely curious. If you’ve explained it before, and I’ve missed it, I apologize. How does federal land management not recognize or involve the interests of Utah? How do the interests of Utah differ from other states in the West? Thanks.

    Go to sounthern NM unit 31 and take a look at what extraction has done to the area. It will make you think about it before you allow it someplace else.
