H.R. 1444: Federal Management Plans
H.R. 1444 states that hunting shall be allowed on all federal lands administered by the U.S. Department of the Interior and the U.S. Department of Agriculture, except those lands that are held in trust on behalf of a Native American Indian or Native American Indian Tribe.
SCI believes that U.S. Federal lands are to be managed under the principles of multiple-use. Outdoor recreation has been and should continue to be a primary use of U.S. Federal lands. The opportunity to hunt on Federal lands should be for a priority for every land and resource management plan. Federal agencies should be tasked with ensuring that abundant hunting opportunities are provided for unless hunting is deemed specifically incompatible with a specific unit of land.
