Title: WI State Land Sale
Post by: mlsthmpsn on October 13, 2016, 11:34:00 AM
Please take a minute and sign the petition.

   Petition: Stop the Wisconsin State Land Sale (http://www.backcountryhunters.org/wisconsin_state_land_sale)  

This generally ruffles a few feathers, but this is what happens when States have control of Public Lands....the lands that you and I own as American citizens. So when you here people and politicians talk about "state-transfer" and "state control"....they really mean they want the ability to sell or lease our public lands to the highest bidder.

These public lands were established by our grandfathers so that all Americans, regardless of social status or wealth, can access and enjoy the outdoors of our Nation in perpetuity...Forever.

These lands are our heritage and tradition, unique in the World, and the future for our children.

Thanks for the link, I added my name.  I dont understand how they think they can sell my, (our) land.

Charlie, they can do it all right. We lost a prime chunk in northern Wi years ago. Went up for spring scouting only to find it posted tight. It never even hit the market to make it public knowledge. It was gone, just like that. I didn't think they could do it either, but I now know better. It's a shame.

Sure is Gary. Hopefully with things like the internet, these backdoor deals become a thing of the past.
