Beware of wolves cloaked in “access”

America’s national forests belong to everyone, and all Americans deserve and rightfully demand access to this national birthright. Such access is like oxygen for hunters and anglers, but beware: Industry barracudas and their pals in Congress are trying to hoodwink sportsmen into supporting bad legislation by promising more lenient access.

Today’s case in point is HR 1581, the so-called Wilderness and Roadless Release Act. It’s sponsored by a Southern California representative who claims he wants to “improve access” to public land. What does this mean? For the oil and gas industry, access means gaining the opportunity to drill. For folks overly fond of their quads and dirt bikes, access means license to drive motorized vehicles wherever and whenever they wish.

“There are lots of wolves out there. Some live in the woods and have sharp teeth. Others live in the city and carry briefcases.” – Ben Long,  Writers on the Range a service of High Country News (hcn.org)

Little Kanawha Stocking

BCTU and MCTU will be stocking fingerlings in the Headwaters of the Little Kanawha River on September 24th at 10:00 AM. We will be meeting at the Arlington Community building on Rt 20 Near Fiddlers Mill (about 15 miles South of Buckhannon on Rt 20).

Due to the remote and rugged nature of this watershed we will need as many able bodied individuals as possible to get the fish properly spread out. Participants should bring a backpack (if you have one). If you have been interested in participating in a stocking, this is a good one to go to as it is an absolutely beautiful canyon.
