Citizens for Balanced Use
Representatives Carolyn Maloney (D-NY), Ed Markey (D-MA) and Raul Grijalva (D-AZ) have once again introduced legislation (H.R. 1187, the Northern Rockies Ecosystem Protection Act) that would designate a massive 23 million acre area across five states (Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Washington, and Wyoming) as wilderness. This means each of these 23 million acres would be made permanently off-limits to motorized and mechanized recreation, including off-highway motorcycles, ATVs, ROVs (side-by-sides), 4x4s, snowmobiles and mountain bikes. It is particularly important to note that the lead sponsor, Rep Maloney, represents Manhattan, Queens and Brooklyn in New York City, yet has introduced legislation that would have an economic and social impact on millions of Americans who live, work and recreate on or near the lands in question. In a particularly ironic twist, Representative Maloney and the other cosponsors will not accept emails from anyone who does not live in their districts. So, these Members seek to force the most restrictive land management on millions of Americans, but will not listen to their concerns.
This sort of top-down legislation poisons the debate and makes meaningful collaboration at the local level more difficult. Who wants to participate in complicated and time consuming collaborative processes when Members of Congress from thousands of miles away, and who have little understanding of the areas in question, introduce and pursue enactment of sweeping legislation that would make all of that hard work moot?
Please make an effort to attend the House Agriculture Sub-committee hearing on House Resolution HR 4. The hearing is scheduled for Tuesday, March 26 at 3 PM, Room 137. HR 4 is “A Resoultion of the House of Representatives of the State of Montana Opposing the Federal Forest Jobs and Recreation Act of 2011. The FJRA is Senator Jon Tester’s bill. Senator Tester’s bill has failed at committee level in DC and has been stripped out of Omnibus bills in the past. While the bill attempsts to establish logging and recreation opportunities, it guarantees neither. It does, however, guarantee more than 600,000 acres of new wilderness.

It’s an alphabet soup of acronyms plus charts, graphs and densely worded proposals. It’s 1,800 pages long.
The document released by the Bureau of Land Management’s Miles City Field Office on Friday will help guide management of 2.7 million surface acres and 11 million mineral acres in Eastern Montana, possibly for two decades.
“It’s not for wimps,” said Todd Yeager, Miles City field manager. “They are heavy topics to handle.”
The title of the document – the Draft Resource Management Plan and Environmental Impact Statement – may seem almost as long as the eight years it took to develop. Within the plan is the BLM’s recommended alternative for how to manage the area, a guiding document for lands in 17 counties that hasn’t been updated for some areas since 1985.
The document is only a draft, the public will have until June to suggest changes before the plan is finalized.
Here’s a partial breakdown on what can be found in the document under the BLM’s suggested alternative:
Probably the largest concern for southeastern Montana landowners is the BLM’s decision to allow grazing on all but about 3,000 acres of its land.
The Miles City Field Office already administers 1,776 grazing allotments comprising 2,736,673 public acres and 546,570 public animal unit months. Cattle are the most common livestock (1,728 allotments), followed by sheep (132), horses (101), bison (3) and burros (1).
Yeager said 98 percent of the area’s grazing allotments meet the standards for rangeland health. The other 2 percent are under review.
The BLM would allow oil-and-gas development with conditions on the estimated 2.5 million acres of its sage grouse habitat.
“We’ve really broken up how we are proposing to manage sage grouse habitat,” Yeager said. “We’re looking at delineating habitats into three different classifications and surface disturbance would be managed differently in each area.”
The BLM noted that “expanding energy development in western North America poses a major new challenge for sage-grouse conservation,” including “habitat loss, fragmentation, and deterioration resulting from factors including the spread of invasive species, infrastructure development … wildfire, conversion of sagebrush habitats to nonnative species or agriculture, and conifer invasion.”
Three areas would be established specifically as sage grouse priority areas: North Garfield (171,000 acres), North Rosebud (173,000 acres) and Carter (448,000 acres). Four areas would be designated sage grouse habitat restoration areas: Decker area (8,300 acres), Cedar Creek (29,000 acres), South Carter (64,000 acres) and a source population area (8,000 acres). Development in these areas would be restricted to maintain sage grouse habitat.
The BLM denied a request by sportsmen’s groups to protect an area next to the Charles M. Russell National Wildlife Refuge from oil-and-gas development to protect sage grouse, saying the potential for development in the area was already low.
The BLM would add six new areas of critical environmental concern (ACEC), four that are historic battlefields from the Indian Wars and two that contain dinosaur bones.
The field office already oversees 16 ACECs. One – the Howrey Island ACEC – would be removed. It was initially created to protect a bald eagle nesting area when the bird was listed as an endangered species. It will now be managed as a special recreation management area, places that are more intensively managed for recreation.
Some of the existing ACECs and their size include: Ash Creek Divide (7,921 acres), Bug Creek (3,837 acres), Hell Creek (19,373 acres), and Sand Arroyo (9,052 acres) paleontological ACECs; Big Sheep Mountain (363 acres), Hoe (147 acres), Jordan Bison Kill ACEC (160 acres), Powder River Depot (1,401 acres), Seline (80 acres), cultural ACECs; piping plover (15 acres) and black-footed ferret (11,221 acres) wildlife ACECs; Finger Buttes (1,520 acres) scenic ACEC; and Smoky Butte (80 acres) geological ACEC.
The BLM identified 5,236 acres of the Devil’s Creek Common area as having wilderness characteristics.
The entire planning area contains seven wilderness study areas covering more than 97,000 acres. Those study areas will continue to be managed for wilderness characteristics. Motorized use on already established routes can continue as long as the resource is not impaired for wilderness suitability.
A Montana Wilderness Association representative said his group would be making a case for consideration of other BLM areas for wilderness characteristics, including Buck Creek, portions of the Powder River Valley and Wrangler Creek.
Right now, the Miles City Field Office has three special recreation management areas (SRMAs) totaling 16,500 acres. Under the preferred alternative that would be expanded to 11 SRMAs covering 43,000 acres.
New areas include: Powder River Depot (162 acres), Calypso (71 acres), Lewis and Clark Trail (14,499 acres), Howrey Island (592 acres), Matthews (91 acres), Dean S. Reservoir (162 acres), Pumpkin Creek Ranch (19,435 acres), Glendive Short Pine (2,272 acres), Terry (110 acres), Strawberry Hill (4,248 acres), and Moorhead (13 acres).
Off-highway vehicle use would be open on 2,000 acres; limited on 2.8 million acres; and closed on 2,800 acres. But that’s simply a reflection of the creation of new ACECs, said the BLM’s Shane Findlay. After the plan is finished, the agency will begin travel management planning for the field office.
Once it is finalized, the plan can be amended to meet changing conditions.
The draft document can be viewed on the Internet at http://blm.gov/0ykd. A limited number of paper copies of the draft are available from BLM’s Miles City Field Office, 111 Garryowen Road.
Open houses have been scheduled in May in eight communities at which the public can provide comments. Or comments can be sent by email to: BLM_MT_MCFO_RMP@blm.gov; by fax to: 406-233-3650; by mail to: “MCFO RMP Comments”, 111 Garryowen Road, Miles City, MT 59301; or delivered to the Miles City office. The comment period extends to June 5.

Brucellosis Found in Elk in Northern Wyoming Northern Ag Network posted on March 08, 2013 17:35 :: 59 Views The following is a press release from the Wyoming Game and Fish Department: CHEYENNE — Two elk harvested by hunters in the Big Horn Mountains of northern Wyoming have tested positive for brucellosis. Brucellosis has been present for nearly a century in elk and bison in the Greater Yellowstone Area, including the northwest corner of Wyoming. Brucellosis in cattle, elk, and bison is caused by a bacterium, Brucella abortus. The disease can cause an animal to abort its fetus. The positive elk were identified through the Wyoming Game and Fish Department’s statewide brucellosis surveillance program, in which hunters voluntarily submit blood samples from harvested elk. Samples are collected from hunters in the fall and early winter, then analyzed at the WGFD lab throughout the winter. The Wyoming Livestock Board, the Wyoming Game and Fish Department, and the State Veterinarian are collaborating to assess the situation and identify appropriate action. “It’s important for people to understand that brucellosis has not been found in any livestock in this area of Wyoming,” said Wyoming State Veterinarian Jim Logan. “We will be working with livestock producers in the area to ensure they are aware of the situation, and we are moving to quickly analyze the implications and actions that should be taken.” For more information about brucellosis in Wyoming, go to wyomingbrucellosis.com.

Bullock Okays Movement of Bison to Quarantine Northern Ag Network posted on March 06, 2013 11:03 :: 259 Views The following is a press release from Montana Governor Steve Bullock: HELENA – Montana Governor Steve Bullock has approved a request from Yellowstone National Park to move 63 bison from a holding facility in the park, near Gardiner, to an Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service facility in Corwin Springs, three miles away. The bison are now approved to be moved to the facility for research and quarantine. Under an Executive Order issued in 2011, the U.S. Department of Interior is prohibited from transporting “wildlife in Montana to or from any Department of Interior-managed lands or facilities without prior approval.” That Executive Order, No. 16-20111, remains in effect. The movement of the bison to quarantine is consistent with the Interagency Bison Management Plan. In approving the transfer, Bullock encouraged Yellowstone Park officials to “work closely with my staff and the Montana Departments of Livestock, and Fish, Wildlife and Parks to safely effectuate this transport.” Source: The Office of Montana Governor Steve Bullock Posted by Haylie Shipp

CBU Note: The Montana House of Representatives Natural Resources Sub-Committee recently tabled House Resolution HJ 8, which opposed Sen. Tester’s Forest Jobs and Recreation Act. It was our opinion then, that there would be little to stop the FJRA and that Sen. Baucus would resurrect his Rocky Mountain Front bill. It did not take long for Sen. Baucus to capitalize.
The plains meet the mountains on the Rocky Mountain Front near Augusta, shown here on Oct. 26, 2011, with Sawtooth Ridge at fthe ar right. Sen. Max Baucus has reintroduced the Rocky Mountain Front Heritage Act. TRIBUNE PHOTO/RION SANDERS.
U.S. Sen. Max Baucus of Montana is taking another run at getting a bill passed in Congress that would increase protections for 275,272 acres of public land on the Rocky Mountain Front west of Great Falls.
The announcement, which came Wednesday, was timed with the 100-year anniversary of the state Legislature’s creation of the Front’s Sun River Game Preserve, Montana’s first game preserve. Today, the reserve, located in the Bob Marshall Wilderness adjacent to the Rocky Mountain Front, is managed by the U.S. Forest Service.
The bill creating the Sun River preserve, passed in 1913, was crafted at the grass-roots level, just like the Heritage Act, Baucus, a Democrat, said.
“We owe it to our kids and grandkids to protect unique treasures like the Front that make Montana the greatest place on Earth,” Baucus said in a statement. “On top of that, protecting the Front is good for business and good for Montana jobs, with more than $10 million spent each year in the Front during hunting season alone.”
The legislation would designate 208,160 acres as Conservation Management Area, which Baucus refers to as a “home-grown designation” limiting road building but protecting current motorized recreation and public access for hunting, biking, forest thinning and grazing.
Supporters of the new CMA designation say it’s necessary because the current status of the land, while largely protected now, could be changed in future forest management plans. They say the bill addresses the threat of future expansion in motorized uses.
The legislation also would add 67,112 acres of new wilderness to the Bob Marshall Wilderness Complex
“It’s not an earth-changing piece of legislation,” said Dusty Crary, a Choteau-area rancher who testified in favor of the Heritage Act when it was heard in the Senate Subcommittee on Public Lands and Forest last March. “It says, ‘We like the Front the way it is,’ and unless you put it in writing there’s no guarantee it will stay that way.”
Crary, who is in Washington, D.C., on other legislative business, said all the talk in D.C. is focusing on the financial issues facing the country, but he’s still raising the bill when he speaks to staff members of lawmakers, who are in recess.
“It’s not that controversial of a bill,” Crary said of the Heritage Act. “It doesn’t have a fiscal note to it. It’s not a really hairy bill as far as some things, and I hope they get to it.”
Baucus first introduced the Rocky Mountain Front Heritage Act in 2011. Most of the land is in Lewis and Clark National Forest but some is managed by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management.
It needed reintroduction because the 212th Congress, which adjourned Jan. 3, didn’t vote on it.
Baucus plans to try for another hearing in the Energy and Natural Resources Committee and a vote to clear the panel. In past years, various land bills have been combined into one public land bill.
There are a couple of changes in Heritage Act that the 213th Congress will consider.
Baucus said he worked with ranchers from Augusta to strengthen protections for responsible grazing practices within the lands designated as Conservation Management Area. The new bill also ensures that the Benchmark airstrip within the CM will remain open.
In reintroducing the legislation, Baucus cited a recent study by the Outdoor Industry Association that found that outdoor recreation supports 64,000 Montana jobs and results in $5.8 billion in consumer spending, $1.5 billion in wages and salaries in addition to $403 million in state and local tax revenue.
The Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks estimates that there were 90,000 hunter days on the Rocky Mountain Front in 2010, the senator said. Sportsmen spent $10 million annually from 2006 through 2010 during hunting season on the Front, he said.
Montana Sen. Jon Tester, a Democrat, is co-sponsoring the bill.
Baucus also wrote a provision that passed in 2006 that permanently protects the Rocky Mountain Front from oil and gas development. In January 2011, he worked to secure a voluntary agreement from five energy companies to relinquish oil and gas leases on nearly 29,000 acres of Montana’s Rocky Mountain Front adjacent to Glacier National Park.
Baucus said the Heritage Act will not affect oil and gas development on private or state land.
HELENA — The Montana House on Monday rejected a plan that aimed to give hunters and others access at “corner crossings” to public land that is intermingled with private land in a checkerboard pattern.
Hunters and advocacy groups packed the chamber in support of the measure, seeking access to patches of government land that meet at corners. Supporters of House Bill 235 said denying access at such corners ensures that mega-land owners like Ted Turner can lock up blocks of public land.
“This law would no longer criminalize a Montana sportsman from jumping from one corner of public land to another corner of public land,” said Rep. Ellie Hill, D-Missoula. “We are talking about hopscotch, folks, leaping from one corner of public property without touching any private land.”
Hill said the measure would ensure access to more than 800,000 acres of landlocked public parcels.
Backers, led by Democrats, were trying to get the measure out of a committee where it had been tabled. Republicans used their majority in the chamber to easily defeat that motion. It only received 45 votes, instead of support from 60 out of 100 in the chamber needed to meet a procedural threshold.
Republican critics argued that there is no way to cross at the corners without trespassing, even if a person knows exactly where the property lines intersect. They argued that a person’s hips and shoulders would cross the airspace at the intersection of the four corners while hopping between parcels.
“It is not about playing hopscotch, it is about trespassing across private property,” said Rep. Jeffrey Wellborn, R-Dillon.
Wellborn said other measures are needed that can be supported by both hunters and landowners.
“I believe this is going to further drive a wedge between landowners and sportsmen,” Wellborn said of the corner-crossing bill. “We need to come together, not further drive that wedge between us.”
Republicans instead advanced a bill that puts more money into the Block Management Program that pays landowners for hunter access. They said House Bill 404, carried by Rep. Kelly Flynn of Townsend, is one of several measures in the works to improve hunter access.
Democrats argued that it wrongly takes the money from a habitat program and said that payments to Montana farmers won’t help gain access to land they argue is mostly locked up in private hunting preserves for the wealthy.
Advocacy and hunting groups coordinated a rally Monday to coincide with the move on the House floor to blast the corner crossing bill out of committee. They were not impressed with the alternate proposal that paid some landowners for access to farm land, which they argued is not generally prime hunting habitat.
Bill Berg, of Lewistown, with the Russell Country Sportsmen, said jumping over an intersection of land at the corners isn’t trespass any more than an airplane that flies over.
The advocates promised to keep pushing the issue.
“This corner crossing problem is not going to go away. It needs to be addressed,” Berg said.
A few hundred orange-clad hunters packed the House gallery to watch the vote, many standing as the final vote was tallied.
At a rally outside the Capitol after the motion failed, supporters of the measure said the issue was not over.
“We need you guys to start today and not stop,” said Hill. “I think we just changed some mind today in there. Yes, the blast failed, but we are not done.”
She said Sen. Anders Blewett, D-Great Falls, has a similar bill coming. And even if that fails, she urged the fight to continue.
“I’ll say it right here: Civil disobedience. Get cited,” she said.
A ballot initiative could also be in the making, she said.
Randy Newburg of Bozeman, host of the television program “On Your Own Adventures” and a recent appointee to the board of directors of the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, said the top reason people quit hunting, or never start, is about lack of access.
He and others also disputed the claim by bill opponents that the measure was unconstitutional.
“This is not about the amateur lawyering of legislators,” he said.
Property rights, he said, apply also to the rights of the public to access public property.
He said that as he travels and hunts around the West, people are envious of Montana’s great hunting opportunities.
Three things make that possible, he said: great private stewardship, great public land and wildlife managers and an “informed, committed and passionate” cadre of hunters.
But, he said, outsiders on the “fringe element” of contemporary politics are trying to divide those in what he called “the sanity of the middle.”
“Outsides come here and they buy the votes of the fringe,” he said. “The fringe operators are envious of those of us in the middle. … They wish they could operate in the sanity of the middle. But there’s no money in it. Those of us operating in the middle are not for sale, whether we’re hunters, landowners or anyone.”
For our friends in Oregon:
The following Oregon state senate bills are slated as “Declares Emergency,” which means they are on the fast track of becoming laws. The GPAA is appealing to all members to oppose this “greased’ legislation and inundate Oregon state senators with emails, phone calls, faxes and letters, especially the Senate Environment and Resources committee, which will vote on senate bills SB 115, SB 401 and SB 370. This legislation is mean-spirited and unfairly targets small-scale miners!
- SB 115 Placer mining using any form of motorized equipment or motorized dredge is prohibited in this state.
- SB 401 Stops all placer mining in new streams listed as Oregon Scenic Water includes about 20 more mineralized streams. Oregon already has 19 OSW streams and Waldo lake including its tributaries.
- SB 370 requires an annual $125.00 license for nozzles over four inch classifying it as commercial placer mining in streams.
Miners in Oregon need more help and need to get the word out that our rights of miners might be the thing of the past. Pleas support Oregon miners and call the Oregon state senators today to voice your opposition to these senate bills!
