Default Cause for optimism?:Ryan Zinke

https://medium.com/@SecretaryZinke/l...a79#.sidbh66d2

"I cherish our public lands. I have absolutely and unequivocally opposed any attempts to transfer, sell, or privatize our public lands, and serving as their top steward is not a job a take lightly."

Typo aside, I can appreciate how unequivocal he is about his opposition to transfer or sale of public lands. Hopefully this mindset rubs off on some of his (r)counterparts.

He certainly says many of the right things. I know some left-leaning environmental groups are concerned he's too much of the "drill baby drill" mentality, but that's certainly not the vibe I get from his letter. Actions are what really matter so I guess we'll wait and see. For now, I'm optimistic.

Hopefully he is successful in his position and is able to maintain a healthy multiple-use balance for the public lands we all cherish.

On top of everything else, the guy rode a horse to his first day at work, two thumbs up from me!

I too am optimistic. It's been a while since I've felt that way on public land issues, but lately I've felt like we can win this fight. And I think Zinke will be an important part of that. Not to mention Trump has stated he will keep public lands public, and we all know he's been doing everything he said he would during his campaign.

I am cautiously optimistic. The Utah politicians seem to think he will help them take public lands from the Federal Govt and give them to the state, but I hope he won't go along with it. It's a bad deal for sportsmen and women to allow Utah to get their grubby hands on America's lands.

We just don't know what to expect...He says one thing and then votes the other. Oh, wait, he is a politician.

Words alone can not express how excited I am.

Uh...the National Forests are under the Department of Agriculture, not Interior. Governor of Georgia Sonny Perdue will be running the National Forests making sure that all outdoor enthusiasts will get to share the new logging and oil n gas roads in our National Forests.

Hey, didn't you hear? Roads are good for habitat. Ask stimmie78:

"Time for outdoor retailers to leave Utah in disgust"
