Your Help is Needed to Protect Hunting in Monongahela National Forest!

Thursday, November 10, 2005

The U.S. Forest Service is reviewing the management plan for the Monongahela National Forest.  This management plan will guide how the forest resources are managed for years to come.  Groups that want to restrict hunter access on the forest have mobilized to influence the management process. 

 

In order to protect hunter access on this important forest,

your voice needs to be heard!

 

          The Forest Service has prepared several management alternatives for discussion.  The anti-access groups are pushing for the alternative that provides for the least hunter access and restricts active forest habitat management—that alternative does this by declaring large sections of the forest as new wilderness areas.  Once an area is declared a wilderness area many types of active habitat management are restricted and hunter access roads are often closed or not maintained.  West Virginia already has ample wilderness areas and does not need more. 

     NRA supports proposed Alternative 2, which allows active habitat management and protects hunter access in the forest.  Hunters should immediately contact the Forest Service and urge them to adopt Alternative 2, and urge the Forest Service not to create new wilderness areas.  The Monongahela National Forest is a high quality hunting area used by hunters in West Virginia as well as its surrounding states.

     Please write or email the U.S. Forest Service today and urge them to adopt Alternative 2 and oppose new wilderness areas.  Comments must be submitted by November 14 in order to be considered by the Forest Service.
