Sportsman's Petition to Protect Public Lands

Hi everyone,

I hope you don't mind me posting here, but I work at the National Wildlife Federation and we're trying to gather signatures for an online petition to protect valuable hunting grounds.

The U.S. House of Representatives recently passed a budget bill that has a number of provisions that could put more than 300 million acres of public lands up for sale. They are right now combining this bill with a Senate budget, picking and choosing which provisions from each will be put in the final bill. NWF and a number of our state affiliates want to make sure these things don't end up in the final bill, and if they do, that the bill is not passed.

You can find out more about the two budgets here:

Here is the link to the petition:
http://action.nwf.org/campaign/budgetsportsmenpetition20051130

We'll be copying and pasting all the names we gather and giving this directly to your representatives in Congress.

Please spread this around and thanks very much!
