This just hits too close to home not to post. Lets not forget that every group has a voice whether we agree with their perspective or not. Sometimes I am blown away by the intolerance on both sides but we as sportsman can find common ground in the magical places we love and i would say its our opportunity, nay our duty to stand up for them together in this environment of discontent.

PALM SPRINGS, Calif. — Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke says he's urging President Trump to change the boundaries of a "handful" of national monuments — the opening salvo in a largely unprecedented effort to roll back federal protections for some of America's most popular public lands.

It's not clear which monuments Zinke wants to see downsized. The Interior Department said it submitted Zinke's monuments report to Trump on Thursday, but it didn't release the actual report.

Zinke, who was visiting his home state of Montana, said he wouldn't recommend the elimination of any monuments, despite a push from some congressional Republicans to rescind Bears Ears in Utah, Katahdin Woods and Waters in Maine, Sonoran Desert in Arizona and Cascade-Siskiyou in Oregon and California, among other monuments established by previous presidents.
