Midwinter may be the slow season for chasing trout or hunting big game, but it’s been a busy 2010 so far for TU’s Sportsmen’s Conservation Project (SCP). In January, the nation-wide call by hunters and anglers for more balance in the process used to lease public land for oil and gas development was answered by Sec. of the Interior Ken Salazar. And in Colorado, the SCP launched a backcountry campaign to preserve the jewel of the San Juan Mountains, the Alpine Triangle.
Read bout these development, and more news that may directly affect your favorite place to hunt or fish on our public land in the January/February 2010 edition of Field Notes.
