William Ratcliffe started this petition to Alabama State House and

A great number of non-hunters use WMA land for recreation. Many also use it in a way that is detrimental to the land and/or to the hunting and hunters. Often these users have gotten within range of a hunter's rifle without the required blaze orange, making it extremely dangerous for themselves. Others have made use of the lands as dumping sites. And some have set fire to acres of land after leaving bonfires unattended.

We seek a state statute that would require the purchase of a WMA license for anyone seeking to access WMA land for any recreational or sporting use (hiking, cycling, bird watching, etc.) where a license is not already required. This will accomplish several things: non-hunters will become more aware of hunting seasons and regulations, increase funding for Dept. of Conservation, and give game wardens another tool for combatting the misuse of the land. 

Please sign this petition and contact your state congressmen.
