Dear Headwaters Sportsman Association members and friends,
I posted a duck hunting thread on Hunt Talk you may enjoy:

Also I wanted to let you know that there will be a rally in Helena on Monday Feb 16 at noon to support keeping federal land open to hunting and fishing. There are bills that will try to transfer Federal land to Montana. However, the current bills do NOT have wildlife and hunting access as one of the top priorities. In fact, no bill yet even addresses the issue. Also there are no guarantees for public access and ownership in perpetuity, so the land may easily end up in private hands if transferred to the State.
Until I see a bill that supports wildlife and access for ever over only profit for the leaser, I will not support any land transfer bill.
Here is information about the rally:
Rally for Public Lands - Montana
 
What: Rally for Public Lands
When: February 16th, High Noon 
Where: Montana State Capitol. Second Floor Rotunda 
Why: The Transfer of Public Lands is a hot button issue this legislative session. Powerful out of state interests are wooing our legislators to pursue a dangerous and economically disastrous path that would lead to excessive litigation and ultimately, if successful – less access and more taxes for Montanans. That’s why we’re jumping back on the bus and heading to Helena to fight back and make sure that the Legislature understands loud and clear that our public lands are not a toy for politicians and we don't tolerate their attempts to skin us from our own land. 
The Rally be at high noon, on February 16th, 2015 in the Capitol Rotunda on the second floor. We are still lining up guest speakers but we do have a commitment from Governor Bullock at this time.
