***NTA Alert- All Members! ***




URGENT!!!
The fate of trapping on public lands may be decided by the action of the US Senate.
Rep. Deb Haaland of New Mexico has been nominated by the President to be the next Secretary of the Interior. She has expressed anti-trapping views and supports the ban of trapping on public lands in her home state. If confirmed by the Senate, she would have control over federal public land in the US.
Confirmation hearings begin with testimony next week. Please contact your Senator before then and express your opposition to this individual. The stakes have never been higher. Please act now! Action needed before Feb 22nd.


you can vote your way into socialism, but you will have to shoot your way out.

You think your turncoat Senator will listen? I know neither of my democrat Senators will. Waste of time.


Help yourself.

Mine won't support her even if i don't contact them. Shame other states can't elect decent people to represent them.


Not my circus, not my clowns.

Probably, quite a shame. Our representatives sold us out years ago. Bush jr first bail out is when I realized they no longer represent us, 80% of Americans were not for first bail out.

Trump was a real breath of fresh air.


Help yourself.

I'm sure that my reps will not care what my opinion is -- In fact I'm sure that our gov is just waiting for the opportunity to close fed lands in Oregon.

Is it summer? Awful lot of WHINING! Must be mosquitoes.

Cmon guys lets get some positive going here!

The Senate is close, there are plenty of Senators who it's worth a try.

Let's not just roll over dead already!

I have no doubt that Sen. Ron Johnson will support us. However I have doubts the Sen. Tammy Baldwin will. I will be contacting both. Just about all the lands and waters I trap and hunt on are Federal.

Thanks for the heads-up Drasselt!

i agree we need to do everything we can politically and diplomatically, however... i have come to the conclusion that the law isnt always right. Just because government outlaws something doesnt mean im going to stop doing it if thats part of my life. Take that for what its worth.

In MN, our two commie Senators will definitely hear from me. I don't care if they ignore me or not, at least I voiced my opinion. Thanks for the reminder on the NTA, I had let mine lapse and will renew.

Done. Sent to Johnson and Baldwin

Senator Johnson-I am offering my input into the upcoming nomination of Haaland for Secretary of the Interior. My family and I hunt, fish, and trap primarily in the lands and waters within the Upper Mississippi National Wildlife and Fish Refuge on the western edge of Wisconsin. I have ethically used the resources for over 40 years, and have given back more than I have taken.

In researching Haaland I have found that she has a strong record of statement and activism against trapping in general, but specifically on federal lands. I am extremely concerned that if she is placed in the position of Secretary of the Interior she may enact changes that will be disastrous to the science-based management of the federal lands and waters that I have been a steward of for so many years, as well as those within the United States.

I am requesting that you oppose the choice of Haaland as Secretary of the Interior. Hunting, fishing, and trapping is a way of life for many citizens along the Mississippi as well in many regions across the United States. These science-based decisions have driven the resources, seasons, and regulations within the federal lands and waters for decades, and we cannot afford to upset the balances with social or emotional rationale to prohibit what has been true management of these magnificent resources.

Thank you for your time.


Moosetrot
