"as demands on public lands rise"

I am all about sustaining ourselves here in the great U.S.A, but not at the cost of the greater good. I am sure some of the research is biased, but I have heard from many Westerners that the gas/oil drilling on public lands has hurt the animals greatly in some areas.

I have only been hunting WY for the last three years, so I cannot contest from past experience but I will say gas/oil fields are everywhere and where they are there are roads which increases habitat disruption.

I dont know what the solution is, but i hope the "experts" do what is right for ALL.

Of course this could be a "Global Warming" phenomenon and the animals are only in decline because of droughts and extreme winters and will rebound as it goes through the cycle.

In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks.

I think it is a variety of issues. And I am not sure, which issue has caused the most decline in population.
