house Bill H.R. 528

Should More Federal Lands be Open for Recreational Hunting, Fishing, and Shooting?

Argument in favor

Creating more opportunities for fishing and hunting on federal lands will not only make it easier for people to enjoy the hobbies they love, but it would foster an attitude of stewardship and sustainable management of the environment.

People don't understand that hunters aren't chasing endangered wildlife. If anything they act as a natural balance now that humankind has short sightedly removed the apex predators such as bears and wolves. Additionally, hunting tags finance the stewardship of said lands.

Sportsmen have always played an active role in animal conservation and accountability. They can be a potent ally in protecting animals and in conserving natural resources.

we can use the money from the hunters paying for tags and to use the land to help keep the lands preserved

Argument opposed

The government needs to preserve as much public land as possible. Even if this bill doesn’t allow economic development on these lands, the increased use for fishing and hunting will damage already fragile ecosystems.

We need to protect our wildlife not kill it. In fact, some bans on low numbers of species should be enacted, such as the wolf.

Federal land is preserved for everyone's enjoyment, not just hunting and shooting outdoorsmen. These become mutually exclusive when hunting/shooting creates safety concerns and risks for all visitors.

We need to set aside some land and leave it untouched for future generations of Americans.
