Texas: Management Plan Includes Hunting on the Aransas National Wildlife Refuge

Friday, March 12, 2010

The Fish and Wildlife Service has released a plan to guide management actions for the next 15 years on the Aransas National Wildlife Refuge, a 10,000 acre refuge spread across Aransas, Calhoun, and Refugio Counties

The plan proposes two management alternatives to the current management plan (Alternative A).  Although Alternative B is the Service's choice, Alternative C calls for significantly expanding all priority public uses, including hunting.  Public comments can be submitted until Tuesday, April 13 and emailed to Roxanne_Turley@fws.gov.  The plan can be viewed at http://www.fws.gov/southwest/refuges/Plan/index.html.  For further information please call 361-286-3559. 

It is important that the Service receives support for providing and enhancing hunting opportunities on the refuge.  Anti-hunters can be counted on to pressure the Service against it.
