  •  I'd disagree. Not only do I consider myself a tree (3+ / 0-)

    hugger as well as hunter but a photographer, writer, snowshoer, hiker, camper, wildlife watcher, X country skiier, rock climber, canoeist, and fisherman, but I welcome all those others as well as RVers, ATVs, mountain bikers, snowmobilers, off roaders, etc, onto our public multi use lands. There is plenty for all especially if we agree to not conflict.

    Hunters always have advocated for land to be available for all user groups, with the caveat that the more destructive or intensive uses, that disrupt wildlife, be managed to do as little damage as possible.
