The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has released a management plan for the 7000-acre Modoc National Wildlife Refuge, located southeast of
The draft plan evaluates four alternatives for managing the refuge over the next 15 years. Common to all the alternatives is the implementation of a hunting and fishing program.
Comments on the plan are being accepted until Friday, July 30 and can be submitted by email to Jackie_Ferrier@fws.gov. The plan can be viewed online at http://www.fws.gov/modoc. For additional information please call 530-233-3572.
It is important for the Service to receive support for maintaining and enhancing hunting opportunities on national wildlife refuges, especially in light of continuing efforts by animal "rights" extremists to close refuges to hunting. Please take a few minutes to review the draft plan and submit comments.
