The politicians in Washington DC did not waste any time! Rep. Jason Chaffetz is spearheading the diabolical H.R. 621 bill. This bill is designed to allow the Secretary of Interior to sell off federally owned public lands in Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah, and Wyoming! This is a major move against western states that have traditionally boasted million of acres of public lands that hunters, anglers, and all outdoor recreationists have enjoyed for generations! H.R. 621 is going to allow the theft of public lands. THEFT! There is no other word to describe this.
As I have stated before, this is our responsibility as hunters and outdoors enthusiasts to stand up for our public lands. Make no mistake, if we allow them to step over us and do this to our public lands now, they will only steamroll us for the rest of it! Call or e-mail your House Representatives! Find them on social media and blow up their feeds! Tell your representatives how you feel about H.R. 621 and the theft of your public lands! While you are at it, jump on Rep. Jason Chaffetz’ social media pages on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram and politely tell him you are opposed to H.R. 621! Make it rain! Make it rain! And tell him I sent you!
While I have you all fired up… sign the petition! Join Backcountry Hunters & Anglers! Join Quail Forever! Donate to TRCP! United we can push back. We hunters have a thunderous voice when we have a common enemy. Let’s show these guys they cannot mess with our heritage.
Happy Hunting & God Bless.
As of February 1st, Rep. Jason Chaffetz claimed to have heard the voice of all sportsmen and other public lands advocates. Citing that he was an avid hunter and outdoorsman himself, Rep. Jason Chaffetz claimed he would kill bill H.R. 621 for good. Things move very slowly in Washington and we have yet to receive official notice that this bill has died. Another bill, H.R. 622 has gone unnoticed by many and threatens to terminate the law enforcement functions of the Forest Service and the BLM. Clearly, these bills were meant to compliment one another if passed. Rep. Jason Chaffetz’ next logical step should be to kill this bill as well! Please remind him!
