Comments Needed on Wildlife Refuges Opened to More Hunting and Trapping



The U. S. Fish & Wildlife Service is developing comprehensive conservation plans that will determine the future of the National Wildlife Refuge System. In Illinois, they have issued such a plan that will guide the management for Crab Orchard National Wildlife Refuge. The FWS deems recreational hunting/trapping as activities that are “compatible” with the purpose & goals of the refuge & recommend that these activities CONTINUE or even INCREASE.

Hunters/trappers have access to millions of acres of public and private lands outside the refuge system for their activities. Hikers, bird watchers, campers, photographers, campers, are entitled to enjoy the small percentage of public lands designed as wildlife refuges free from the dangers of guns, traps, etc.

The Fish & Wildlife Service is accepting comments until January 17, 2006 on the Crab Orchard National Wildlife Refuge. These are FEDERAL lands and any U. S. resident can comment on these proposals.

Your comments can go to U. S. Fish & Wildlife Service, Crab Orchard National Wildlife Refuge, Attn: Draft EIS Comment, 8588 Rt. 148, Marion, IL 62959 or e-mail toconwr-ccp@fws.gov
