Executive Order on National Monuments Review
May 2, 2017
posted in: News
The large acreages of the Monuments in this review include many areas of the Western States that support or could support wild sheep. These areas and other public lands are part of our purpose in Putting and Keeping Wild Sheep on the Mountain®.
The conservation of wild sheep requires access for conducting scientific research and management including hunting, which all are part of modern scientific wildlife management. Proper access enables managers and volunteers to promote healthy wild sheep populations, and access also enables wildlife enthusiasts and other visitors to federal lands to stimulate growth in local economies.
Any rules for existing National Monuments that restrict such access must be revised, and proper access must be provided in the establishment of any future Monuments.
