What America's Outdoor Media says about the Public Land Siezure

Outdoor Life Online: Dec. 31, 2014

“Stop this Silly Talk” ... instead of continuing to talk about shedding federal land in America, let’s talk about making what we have more accessible and productive.

Field & Stream Online: Dec. 31, 2014

“The ‘ultimate disaster’... The idea to sell or give away these lands... is now a major concern.”

Petersen’s Hunting Magazine. Dec. 2014-Jan. 2015

“But instead of adding more land, our Federal government, in most cases spearheaded by conservative Republicans whom we love so much for their pro-gun stances, is looking at reducing our public land (bowhunter/turncoat Paul Ryan just made my sh*t list by suggesting such).”

Guy Eastman, Eastman’s Hunting Journal. August. 2014 (Live chat).

“It’s a very stupid idea.... I think we can all agree that protecting our public lands is probably more important than anything else ... once the public land is gone, we can never get it back again. Public land loss is permanent, period."


Randy Newberg, host of Fresh Tracks with Randy Newberg in Helena Independent Record. Dec. 25, 2014

“Boondoggle... It’s time to stop playing games... It’s time to admit that the scheme of transfer of public lands is really about selling them and selling our American birthright.”

Hank Shaw, author of Hunt, Gather, Cook (Facebook Post.)

"If you care about access to public hunting and fishing grounds -- and you should, unless you want to see hunting limited to just the rich -- make yourself heard!"

Steve Rinella, host of the MeatEater; July 29, 2014 (Facebook Post)

“Our public lands are under assault from politicians who want to gut them for short-term financial gain.”
