We wouldn't expect @dansolsman of @provider_life for the coordinates of this stud #Idaho bull, but thanks to forward-thinking conservationists like him, @theTRCP was recently able to collect something just as good. More than 400 sportsmen from Twin Falls to Sandpoint provided valuable feedback outlining the places they value most for hunting and fishing. In an effort to help guide future land-management decisions by emphasizing areas most valued by hunters and anglers, the useful data have been assembled in a geographic information system that can be overlaid with maps showing critical habitat, land ownership, and planned development. The goal isn’t to give away secret honey holes, but to make sure they exist well into the future.

Went out into some #publiclands today to do some shooting and both of my kids decided to pick up other people's trash. I didn't even have to say anything. I wish some of theses other #publiclandowner 's would pick up there own trash. Haul it in haul it out I thought was the rule....😉#publiclandsproud#prouddad
Hopped off the plane from Washington D.C. yesterday after spending the last three days lobbying for our public lands and native trout. I am grateful for the opportunity to speak up on behalf of these special places and unique trout. Here is a look at some of our favorite experiences from this summer.

Happy first day of fall from the Tongass National Forest! 🍂As a temperate rainforest, the Tongass isn't world famous for its fall colors, but maybe it should be—you only have to hike through a muskeg or up to the alpine to see gorgeous flushes of red, orange, and yellow.

#FBF to September 22, 2015, when—in the presence of the conservation community, sportsmen and women, ranchers, and four Western governors from both parties—the Department of the Interior announced that the greater sage grouse would NOT be listed as threatened or endangered. Instead we would embark on the country’s largest-ever collaborative conservation effort to restore its sagebrush habitat. Westerners are ready to get to work, but now the plans could possibly get picked apart before they’ve even had a chance to work.
