Balancing Natural Resource Extraction on Public Lands
Public lands provide important habitat for fish and wildlife and should be responsibly managed during energy project planning and development.
Federal agencies’ multiple-use mandate requires that public lands management policies consider all resources – including fish and wildlife.
Current science and knowledge gained from previous efforts should drive federal policy regarding the management of our public lands, as well as the natural resources and outdoor opportunities they provide.
Current federal leasing policies allow industry to play a major role in determining where energy projects will occur as well as the pace and intensity of development. As a result, energy development on public lands can occur with inadequate attention paid to natural resources conservation and sportsmen’s values. Resource management agencies also are being asked to do more with less funding.
Many folks feel overwhelmed when they are hunting on public lands and they get a deer or elk down on the ground in a place that is a mile or more from the nearest road. At this distance, dragging an animal out is too much work and game carts are often impractical. Watch Now
