There’s been a lot of talk recently about America’s public lands being put on the chopping block, but what does it all really mean?

As public land hunter and outdoor TV host Randy Newberg explains, the transfer of national lands to the states would result in one likely outcome: the fire sale of these lands to the highest bidders, such as billionaires and foreign corporations that may neither understand nor value America’s outdoor heritage. In Newberg’s opinion, once privatized, these lands will become off-limits to most sportsmen—for good.

This short illustration tells you all you need to know about the current battle we might face in keeping our public lands exactly that – PUBLIC. Watch the clip and if you agree with Newberg, then join him in telling lawmakers that America’s public lands are NOT FOR SALE. You can sign the petition at sportsmensaccess.org

    Wait a minute, didn’t I read story after story on how trump would NEVER let this happen?? And didn’t I read a story with an exclusive interview with Donald Trump Jr. on how he would fight anyone trying to sell public land?
    Don’t be surprised when only the highest bidder will be able to hunt whats left of the huntable land…

      yes – but a lot more happens in government that what the POTUS says or wants……ask our previous administration if they got everything they wanted.

    This is the most alarming thing I have seen in a long time and illustrates not only that trump is our enemy, but that the entire U.S. Congress is also. We cannot lose our public lands to the highest bidders. I am no longer a Republican or anything else after this! What an absolute outrage! We sportsman had better stop this in it’s tracks!
