Stop Congress From Opening the National Park System to Hunting!

I was alarmed to learn that the U.S. House of Representatives recently passed the Sportsmen's Heritage Act, which includes language that could allow much of the National Park System to be open to hunting and recreational shooting.

Not surprising knowing how much the Repbulicans appear to love hunting for wildlife for sport..$arah Palin, Rick Perry, Paul Ryan to name just three of recent notoriety. Their love of fire arms seems to be a part of that lust for killing something live ? This makes a smuch sense as having an open petophile season on public elementry school play grounds in my opinion. Public / National parks are for everyone to enjoy...even the animals who's habits are within them and declairing open season on the taking of their lives is not for everyone to say the least so why and how could they even come up with this insantea in the first place is beyond all reasoning in my opinion. The GOP house wants to give oil and timber companies the rights to our publican lands for their personal/corporate profits..and now they want to open them so that the corporate hunting class can have guided hunting tours as a vacation or ? This must be stop'd. These lands are all of ours....not there just for a few to plunder/pillage and kill animals for the sake/passion of a few just for the 'sport' of it ?

This is not only a serious danger for our wildlife but for other park goes who are there to experience the beauty of nature,walking/hiking/camping/observing, not to kill some of it for sport. Those people don't need the threat of being shot by sport hunting passionist while visiting a national park or having to wait to enjoy it until after the hunters have bag'd their legal limit of wildlife.

thanks for sharing Roxy...

Noted, signed, tweeted, shared. I thought one of the purposes of National Parks was to save wildlife and to help keep our environment pristine. Guess, I was wrong. The GOP especially the Tea Party has no regard for anyone except the Almighty dollar and pressing their values on society as a whole which means they don't care if they kill or take away personal freedom.

I'm done voting for political candidates and parties that get most of their funding from big corporations, that work to weaken democracy, that subsidize fossil fuels, that ignore climate change, that support using terror weapons such as cruise missiles and predator drones on unarmed women and children, that undermine the right of teachers and other workers to collective bargaining, that limit political participation to only those parties that receive huge corporate handouts, and that generally ignore the will of the people.

We need to think outside of the two-party box. Vote Green. If you're not ready to vote Green at the presidential election, consider voting Green at the local, state, and congressional levels. Many states have Green candidates running at those levels.

Note to everyone, fighting against these "rights to hunt" everywhere and kill everything, has gotten out of control and its time we take it back. We are finally getting an edge, and they are getting mad. You can see it on the websites and the amount of trolls, the Org's we have the hunters are attacking my wolf army and we are fighting back. Now were in court against them and bringing attention to the bills that are being passed as "riders" with skins and pelts attached to them, mislabeled. Its time to fight back, been time a long time ago. 3000 wolves will die in 2012 for no reason but a trophy on a wall, just sickening and so wrong. Time to stop this insanity.

H.R. 4089, the so-called “Sportsmen’s Heritage Act of 2012,” is a highly controversial omnibus bill that combines several radical hunting proposals into one awful package. Among other things, the legislation seeks to allow importation of polar bear trophies taken in sport hunts in Canada; mandate that the Department of Interior and the U.S. Forest Service open nearly all federal public lands to hunting without regard to the impact on wildlife and other resources; and strip the Environmental Protection Agency of its ability to regulate toxic lead. Each one of these component parts would warrant our vigorous opposition, but to combine all of them into one package, is a disgrace and the House should reject it.

The measure would undermine several current federal wildlife protection and environmental laws, further imperil already threatened species and the environment, and undermine federal agencies’ ability to carry out their wildlife and public lands management obligations. We want to demonstrate why this bill, in all of its component parts, is such a disaster:

POLAR BEARS: H.R. 4089 would amend the Marine Mammal Protection Act to allow the importation of two classes of polar bear trophies taken in sport hunts in Canada. First, it would allow import of polar bear trophies taken in Canada before February 18, 1997, regardless of whether the polar bear was taken from an approved or unapproved population. Since prior to 1997 there were approved populations from which U.S. trophy hunters could take bears and import their trophies, only trophy hunters who killed polar bears from unapproved populations would benefit under this provision. We shouldn’t reward these trophy hunters who killed polar bears in contravention of the MMPA and now seek to benefit from their unlawful behavior.

Second, H.R. 4089 would allow import of polar bear trophies taken in Canada and only from bears hunted from approved populations before the May 2008 Endangered Species Act listing took effect. In practice, it would treat trophy hunters who killed their bears before the ESA listing took effect as though the listing had never taken effect. The trophy hunting community was aware that the ESA listing would take place for over 16 months prior to its effective date, and trophy hunters were repeatedly warned by federal agencies and hunting associations that the final listing would cut off imports immediately. These individuals knowingly assumed the risk that their trophies might not be approved for importation, and allowing them to import those trophies now would constitute an unfair bailout.

The MMPA prohibits the sport hunting of polar bears in the U.S. and it prohibits the import of any marine mammal, including dolphins, whales, seals, sea lions, and walruses. The law should be consistently applied, and we should not have a special carve-out for a few trophy hunters who shot polar bears in Canada, knowing full well that they may not be able to import the trophies under U.S. law. While some argue this is just a small number of trophies, it encourages hunters to continue killing protected species in other countries, store the trophies in warehouses, and simply wait for their allies in Congress to get them a waiver on the imports. It sets a dangerous precedent, and encourages more killing of threatened species and protected marine mammals, which flies in the face of the ESA and MMPA.

FEDERAL LANDS: H.R. 4089 would open sensitive and primitive wilderness areas to recreational hunting and shooting activities, despite the fact that these areas have been long protected from invasive human recreational pursuits. Further, H.R. 4089 would open up national park lands to recreational hunting even though such activity is generally prohibited by law.

H.R. 4089 would also exempt all federal agency decisions concerning recreational hunting or shooting activities from environmental review under the National Environmental Policy Act. No analysis of the impacts of these activities to target and non-target wildlife, habitats, or any other aspect of the environment would be permitted. These provisions of H.R. 4089 are entirely antithetical to the science-based principles of sound wildlife and federal lands management.

H.R. 4089 explicitly requires federal agencies to facilitate recreational hunting opportunities on all federal lands. This will raise serious safety concerns, and create significant conflicts with the non-consumptive activities, such as hiking and wildlife watching, of other public lands visitors who contribute significantly more to the U.S. economy than hunters. If H.R. 4089 passes, virtually every decision by federal agencies to restrict hunting and shooting activities would be subject to expensive lawsuits as to whether the decision is “necessary and reasonable.”

There are millions of acres of federal lands currently open to sport hunters who have the opportunity to participate in recreational hunting on many national wildlife refuges, national forests, and other federal properties. The activities mandated in H.R. 4089 are already disproportionately favored against the interests of other larger outdoor user-groups.

LEAD AMMUNITION: H.R. 4089 would also eliminate the jurisdiction of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to regulate ammunition, under the Toxic Substances Control Act. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has already banned the use of lead ammunition for waterfowl hunting—a policy which has been in place for more than two decades yet waterfowl hunting still thrives in this country due to the many forms of non-toxic ammunition available—and the National Park Service prohibits the use of lead ammunition by agency staff and contractors, with both agencies’ decisions being based on the known deleterious effects of lead. Such decisions should be left to the discretion of federal agencies based solely on the best available science on the impacts of toxic substances such as lead.

This omnibus measure includes several highly controversial pieces of legislation that would severely roll back federal conservation laws and set a dangerous precedent for the management of wildlife and the environment.

The Wolf Army 25,861 Facebook fans
The Wolf Army strongly opposes HR 4089 a.k.a. the “Sportsmen’s Heritage Act of 2012”. This bill is clearly designed to turn all US public lands into shooting galleries with no regards to the safety of people trying to enjoy the wildlife and outdoors though other, more popular, recreational activities such as photography, camping, hiking, biking, and even playing sports. Federal lands would no longer be safe for the vast majority of people who wish to enjoy these lands for the benefit of a very small minority. Right now it is estimated that the population of the USA is over 311 million, even if the number of hunters is at 3 million that is still less than one percent of the total US population.

This bill would allow hunting and “recreational shooting” regardless of the distance from private lands including businesses, homes, and schools. This means hunters could be shooting within a few feet from a school or a home. Shooting would also be allowed in all “National Monument Lands” as defined by the Antiquities Act of 1908.

This bill would also endanger areas considered “critical” to the survival of many species and could have devastating effects on many ecosystems in the United States. This is all done in the name of “conservation” which one really has to question “how is the mass killing of animals considered conservation”? Most wildlife and fish & game agencies admit that enforcing hunting laws (including poaching) are nearly impossible to enforce – this law makes this very difficult task even harder.

This bill also allows the importation of polar bear “trophies” shot in Canada. The bear could be from any source in Canada before 1997 and from “approved” sources before 2008. Polar bears are on the brink of extinction and this law will put their survival in grave danger.

This bill is a huge step back in progression – instead of expanding hunting areas we should be preserving our wildlife though natural means. The ecosystems were balanced for hundreds of thousands of years and the balance issues did not start until modern rifle hunting.

Wilderness Watch 96 Twitter followers
On April 17, 2012, the U.S. House of Representatives passed HR 4089, the Sportsmen’s Heritage Act, supposedly “to protect and enhance opportunities for recreational hunting, fishing, and shooting.” The bill is a thinly disguised measure to gut the 1964 Wilderness Act and protections for every unit of the National Wilderness Preservation System.

HR 4089 would give hunting, fishing, shooting, and fish and wildlife management top priority in Wilderness, rather than protecting the wilderness character and wilderness values, as is currently the case. This bill would allow endless, extensive habitat manipulations in Wilderness under the guise of “wildlife conservation” or for providing hunting, fishing, and recreational shooting experiences. It would allow the construction of roads to facilitate such uses, and would allow the construction of dams, buildings, or other structures within Wildernesses.

Specifically, section 104(e)(1) strips away the Wilderness Act’s prohibitions on the use of motorized and mechanized vehicles, motorboats and aircraft, other motorized equipment, and structures and installations for any activity related to hunting, angling, recreational shooting, or wildlife conservation. For example, this would allow for any hunter, angler, or recreational shooter to drive their ATV in Wilderness as long as they were engaged in one of these activities. While the sponsors of the bill have stated this isn’t the law’s intent, an amendment to the bill to make certain this wasn’t the result was opposed by the bill’s supporters and defeated in a House vote.

Section 104(e)(2) would waive “any requirements imposed by the Wilderness Act” for federal public land managers or state wildlife managers for any activity undertaken in the guise of wildlife management. In addition to allowing the construction of roads and unlimited use of motor vehicles and aircraft, this provision would allow any sort of wildlife habitat manipulation that managers desire to do. Logging would be allowed, for example, to create more forage for deer or elk. Reservoirs and watering holes could be bulldozed for bighorn sheep. Lakes and streams could be poisoned, and exotic fishes could be planted to provide more angling opportunities. Unlimited predator control, including aerial gunning, trapping, and poisoning would be allowed. There is literally no limit to what managers could do in Wilderness in the name of wildlife management. And if all this isn’t enough, the non-partisan Congressional Research Service points out that because Section 104(c) of the bill bars application of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), none of these activities will need to undergo any environmental review for their impacts on wilderness values, wildlife, or threatened and endangered species.

The bill is backed by the Congressional Sportsmen’s Caucus, Safari Club International, and a coalition of hunting and gun-rights organizations, including the National Rifle Association. These groups are trying to rush this bill to the Senate floor for a vote. It is imperative that you contact your senator now and urge them to oppose HR 4089!

Hunting for sport is not healthy for oneself.
A very good tracker understood this very young and exchanged weapons for camera.

Trophies (of which I've seen far too many), bring memories to hunters of the vague mystical experience of the real world, infected with the misuse of their life energy. The trail difficult to follow is the one uninfected, the experience of mystery and what some call sacred, or unknown.

That is the one I suggest, and no other; what you will find pursuing THAT trail is of greater value than any you have imagined.
I encourage everyone to learn to use senses to know and understand the signs of others, without ending another's life as some kind of "proof", or warped consummation of "success."

Watching bears, wolves, deer, elk, and even dogs, we can see how they gather incontrovertible truth through smell. Most times they are gathering information just as you do when you drive or converse. Additionally, they hunt or test for safety. The memory of other animals would surprise and astound you; although you also have the capacity:
Pay attention for a moment to your own memory in passing and sensing: down the long years you will find new use and understanding for seemingly minor things you've sensed in passing.
The use of the senses is both natural and exhilarating, and knowing this, you also learn the long trail you follow.

Here, we avoid stepping on living things which are slower than we, or those that are crushed. Not only do animals share previous paths for ease and finding what is necessary, but also it is a matter of sharing and retaining that which shelters, whether this is seen as life for its own individual sake, or revered as sacred.

In opening our senses by following, we can notice the difference between our own senses and others: what is meaningful to one is not always by nature important to another, and so it is difficult to learn.

Think how narrow is the life of one who only tracks to hang a wolf skin on his wall, as does some whom I've met. They retain skills only for social pride, and desperately, fearfully, angrily attempt to protect their only connection to the real world, to other life. See how warped wrongly is the sport hunter, and you might find a way to change both him and your own understanding, expanding it beyond the knowledge of those lost in television, gaming, war, and other drugs.

The gun lobby want money, after all they bank rolled people in to ensure that guns sell. Remember it is not the gun it is the person holding the gun.

Our national parks are to be enjoyed. Of course hunters could be saying the same words, but not the same type of enjoyment. I read recently that the national parks may have to close due to a lack of resources to maintain them. Is that what was in someone's mind? Close parks and allow hunting. Horrible thought.

How on Mother Nature's green earth, can our national parks exist for ALL our citizens if they are open to hunter's?

Perhaps, our legilators have forgotton, that the I WANT WHAT I WANT, AND I WANT IT NOW, behavior is what we expect from children, not from adults.
Hunters have many areas in which to hunt. It isn't as if, there is no place for them to go and play with the boys.
