Arizona: U.S Forest Service Considering Use of Motorized Vehicles to Retrieve Game in the Kaibab National Forrest!

Monday, January 5, 2009

Please Stand-Up and Make Your Voices Heard!

The U.S. Forest Service has released a Travel Management Project (TMP) for the Tusayan Ranger District, Kaibab National Forest.  Three management alternatives for motorized use of roads and trails are presented, including the use of motorized vehicles to retrieve game. 

Alternative 1 is the No Action alternative.  It would allow the use of any type of motorized vehicle to retrieve legally harvested big game.  The No Action alternative is what is allowed currently.  Alternative 2, the Service's recommended management plan, would allow cross-country motorized big game retrieval for elk during all elk seasons.  Hunters would be allowed to take one vehicle up to one mile cross-country from a designated road to retrieve their legally harvested elk.  Alternative 3 is the same for motorized big game retrieval as Alternative 2.

Public comments are being accepted until Friday, January 30 and need to be addressed to:  Forest Supervisor, Kaibab National Forest, 800 S. Sixth Street, Williams, AZ 86046 or emailed to: comments-southwestern-kaibab@fs.fed.us.  For further information, please call (928) 635-8200. 

The TMP is available at: http://www.fs.fed.us/r3/kai. 

Two public meetings are scheduled from 5 to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, January 13 at the Coconino Community College, Lone Tree Campass, at 2800 S. Lone Tree Rd., Flagstaff and Thursday, January 15 at the Tusayan Ranger District Office, located at 100 Lincoln Log Loop (off Highway 64 south of the Grand Canyon National Park entrance, Grand Canyon (Tusayan).

It is important for hunters, whether or not they have hunted in the Tusayan Ranger District, to provide comment on the TMP.  Roads and trails are being restricted for motorized use by the Forest Service and the Bureau of Land Management, which means that hunters' use of vehicles to retrieve game can be severely restricted or eliminated.  NRA is actively involved in ensuring that motorized use restrictions do not restrict hunters' access to federal public lands.  We need your help in providing comments to these federal agencies when TMP’s are released for public comment, such as the Tusayan TMP.
