    America is at that awkward stage. It's too late to work within the system, but too early to shoot the bastards.

    There is value in holding some lands separate from human use but as our society rapidly moves away from hunting and other outdoor activities anything the government can do to encourage young people to continue to participate in those activities is extremely beneficial. I can say from personal experience that the number of young people I see in the criminal justice system would be lower if more of our youth went hunting, or fishing, with a mentor on a regular basis.

    We need more of this type of thinking from Washington.
    And why, today, remember misses?

    I see the ODW is soliciting comments about opening hunting and fishing on the Wichita Mountain National Refuge that would allow more people to enjoy that part of Oklahoma.
    I suspect this request was started by the link provided in the OP.

    With the expansion of hunting will also be the outcry of the anti’s.

    You can bet on that. I remember back in the 90's when the anti's were harassing hunters at the controlled hunts. I drew Salt Plains that year and there were protestors but they couldn't follow us into the field like some did on public WMA's.

    I remember that as well. Those actions led the state to enact hunter anti-harassment laws so they couldn't follow hunters on public lands.

    Exactly. I even used that law once. There is an old dairy that is not in use anymore across the road from one of my hunting areas. One of the kids went away to college and came back as a full blown liberal anti gun, anti hunter, and so on. We had a verbal confrontation one season when I parked and started walking in. He pulled up on the road and started cursing me and calling names. I just ignored him completely and went on about my hunt. That entire weekend he drove around the half section honking his horn while I was in there. Fortunately for me, the county Game Warden lives at the corner of that half section across the road. I called him on Sunday after having enough and he put an end to it. His wife that was at home backed up my story about the horn honking.

    You handled that a lot better than I would have. I probably would've been on the 6 o'clock news

    I had a high powered rifle and a pistol, all he had was a mouth and a horn. Advantage was mine. I let a lot of stuff roll off, but there does come a time......
    Sad thing is that I knew his parents since I was a kid. Hard working folks that ran that dairy. Cows gotta be milked no matter how bad your feeling 7 days a week. Kid was always "different". I can't believe those two folks sired that idiot. He was disrespectful of everyone around him. They worked their butts off and saved to put him through college and then he came home to bum off his parents generosity until they passed away. Nobody lives there now. I can't believe he hasn't sold it for the cash.
    After that one incident I never had any more issues with him.
