    there were massive range wars between sheepherders and cowboys, terrible destruction of the range, and all sort of other abuse, which led to the federal government reforming grazing laws (Taylor Grazing Act) and eventually establishing the Bureau of Land Management.  No, I'm not defending the BLM--especially under this administration which is all about handing over the public estate to BushCo's oligarchic buddies--I'm just saying this idealized notion of a libertarian utopia--either in the west of old or in some grand future is untenable.
