We love our access to public lands. Do you? Show us your proudest public land moments and help us protect our American public lands legacy from being sold off forever.
Use the hashtag #PublicLandsProud!
We want to see the results of your greatest public-land hunts and the biggest fish you’ve hooked in public waters. Show us your best days afield in our national forests and BLM land, alone, with your family, or with your favorite four-legged companion.
Since 2014, efforts have been afoot to transfer federally-managed public lands to the states, which would result in one likely outcome: the fire-sale of these lands to the highest bidder and loss of access for sportsmen and American families. Hunters and anglers across the West have held rallies and responded in their local papers with a resounding ‘No way. Not my lands.’
In 2015, we responded with #PublicLandsProud, an online community of sportsmen who take great pride in America’s public lands and understand the importance and value to our sporting heritage. Our community has grown with over 10,000 posts tagged on social media with #PublicLandsProud.
But we’re not done yet. We need sportsmen to keep the pressure on lawmakers and show them this is a bad idea. So, stand up for continued access to public lands hunting and fishing by tagging your photos and videos of what makes you #PublicLandsProud.
