Back the Front!

    1. Petition by

      Sportsmen for Montana Campaign

When Montana sportsmen wonder what awaits them in heaven it's hard to imagine a better place than the Rocky Mountain Front. But, we've only got one shot to ensure things stays that way - the Rocky Mountain Front Heritage Act. 

The Heritage Act was introduced in Congress by Senator Max Baucus after it was hashed out cooperatively by locals, sportsmen, and conservationists.  It is Made-in-Montana legislation meant to keep the Front the way it is, nothing more and nothing less.

Now Representative Steve Daines is considering the legislation. He needs to see a true groundswell of support from the folks in hunter orange and fishing waders in order to give this bill the support it deserves.

The Rocky Mountain Front deserves the Heritage Act now more than ever. It will help sustain America's second-largest migratory elk herd and Montana's largest bighorn sheep population by protecting the habitat they depend upon. It will also protect our traditional access and future opportunities to hunt in this truly wild country.

Sportsmen have always been at the vanguard when it comes to conserving the most critical habitats and special places in Montana. Here's our shot to do it again. Add you name to this roster and fight for the tradition.

      The preservation of these wilderness areas are vital to the long term interests of Montana, much more important than the short term good enjoyed by a few who mine minerals to be shipped abroad while while the profits go out of state also go out of state.
