If you haven’t heard yet, there was a push from the federal government of the US to sell off major tracts of public land. Over three million acres of it to be precise. as you can imagine this didn’t go over well with segments of the public, however, it’s been kind of nice.
The latest group to get involved with the push to save the land from a future sale has been trail runners. Although, some groups have been fighting for awhile, group you wouldn’t think would get along. One being bow hunting enthusiast Cameron Hanes, who’s been very public about his support.
I think this is a great way for people who may not see eye-to-eye on politics but can come together to fit for something they love. Worse things have come from necessity. It’s also something desperately needed in this country right now.
There’s a wide swath of people who love the Outdoors, for a variety of reasons. From anglers, hikers, campers, snowshoers, hunters, and many others, everyone is for open access to parks, forests, and waterways to enjoy them for what they are. I think we need to keep this in mind with other things as well.
