  • Zinke's first day Secretary of Interior

    https://www.doi.gov/pressreleases/da...s-public-lands

    Secretarial Order No. 3346 overturns the recent ban of lead ammunition and fish tackle used on Fish and Wildlife Service lands, waters, and facilities. The order highlights the need for additional review and consultation with local stakeholders.


    Secretarial Order No. 3347 advances conservation stewardship, improves game and habitat management, and increases outdoor recreation opportunities by directing bureaus and agencies to immediately identify areas where recreation and fishing can be expanded. The order also requests input from the Wildlife and Hunting Heritage Conservation Council and Sport Fishing and Boating Partnership Council to provide recommendations on enhancing and expanding access on public lands and improving habitat for fish and wildlife.

    From all available evidence, it seems he is going to be a great Interior Secretary. We shall see if his actions equal his promise.

        ...and 25A sheep hunting in short order thereafter. These race-based hunting regulations are long overdue for the dustbin.

            Here's the official word: The AVSMA was established in 1995 in responseto concerns from local rural residents aboutconflicts with general hunters. (Note: the regulation has nothing to do with biological concerns).

              Thanks for clarifying. Back to the discussion on Zinke and his actions affecting federal lands in Alaska....

                Seems like we never left the topic, as the AVSMA in Unit 25 and the caribou regulations in Unit 23 are FEDERAL regulations under the purview of the Secretary.
