Tomorrow, February 23, the House Agriculture and Natural Resources Committee will hear House Bill 2875. This is a no-net-loss bill that would require that public lands used for wildlife management purposes be accessible for hunting.
Introduced by state Representative Brian Clem (D-21), HB 2875 would require that the state maintain at least the same level of available public hunting land that currently exists. It would require that additional lands be opened to hunting if land that is currently open to hunting is closed. This is an extremely important measure to the shooting sports community in that it ensures continued access for hunting opportunities on public lands.
Please contact members of the House Agriculture and Natural Resources Committee and urge them to support HB 2875. Also, please thank Co-Chairman Clem for sponsoring this important measure. Contact information for the committee can be found below.
