|JOHN HUGHES - Anchorage Daily News ö BILL PROTECTING HUNTING ON FEDERAL LANDS BECOMES TARGET - The Hunting Heritage Protection Act moving through Congress...has fueled a bitter debate between hunters and environmentalists over access to federal land and whether more hunting endangers hikers, bird-watchers and other outdoor hobbyists...the Clinton administration opposes the bill, saying it would tie the hands of local land managers who need flexibility in deciding whether to close off areas to hunting from time to time to boost safety or reduce conflicts with other users.
|G. RAY ARNETT, Former National Wildlife Federation President Ray Arnett condemns CARA: "CARA is destined to be a disaster for one of its intended beneficiaries, the sporting community of hunters and fishermen who are the true and best conservationists in America." He was also Interior Department Assistant Secretary for Fish and Wildlife and Parks (1981-1985), and Director, California Department of Fish and Game.

|RICHARD BISHOP, Vice President, Alaska Outdoor Council, Federal Funds for Everybody, FEDERAL BILLS INFLAME INHOLDERS, TANTALIZE TREE-HUGGERS, GRATIFY STATE GAME DEPARTMENTS
|GEORGE REIGER, Field & Stream: "Sooner or later, majority rule will shut down hunting on most public land, so the best hope for hunting to survive into the twenty-first century is for sportsmen to create politically influential associations based on private lands managed for wildlife." ALRA comment: Be very careful of placing more private land in government ownership. Future conversion to restricted uses such as wilderness and parks will eliminate hunting and fishing on millions of acres of public lands!
Be informed! Don't allow yourself to be snowed by CARA.
