I think this is good news. As with so much right now, the devil is likely in the details. A few random observations.

1. Re"The order also requests input from the Wildlife and Hunting Heritage Conservation Council and Sport Fishing and Boating Partnership Council to provide recommendations on enhancing and expanding access on public lands and improving habitat for fish and wildlife."

Some environmental groups might feel that these 2 directives could be antagonistic to each other. For instance, increased road and OHV access could be seen to threaten important fish and wildlife habitat. Habitat improvement may require reduced access (especially motorized) to achieve certain goals. It will be interesting to see what details come out and how different environmental/conservation groups react to the guideleines.

A secretarial order sounds like something from the Clinton/Lewinsky era. Actually, I believe it is a directive from the head (Secretary of Interior) to his/her regional directors to find ways to accomplish listed guidelines.

3. I lived in Colorado for 4 years. I sure thought I was a Westerner. I even ate Rocky Mountain oysters there. What's more Western than that.

4. Anyone: "the Wildlife and Hunting Heritage Conservation Council"?
No clue.
