$5,000 fine or imprisonment for up to 6 months or both can be the penalty for being on a closed road even when not marked closed when the Forest Service Travel Plan is implemented.

The U.S. Congressional / House Natural Resources Subcommittee on National Parks, Forests, Public Lands, led by Chairman Congressman Rob Bishop (R) Utah and Nevada 2nd District Congressman Mark Amodei will conduct a field hearing in Elko, Nevada.

The field hearing will consist of testimony primarily concerning the USFS Travel Management Plans that have closed many roads and trails and have prohibited cross country travel on federally managed lands for any purpose.

The hearing will be attended by county commissioners and representatives from ten (10) western states, Wyoming, Montana, Colorado, California, Oregon, Idaho, Utah, Arizona, New Mexico and Nevada representing Recreation, Wildlife, Mining, Agriculture and all other multiple uses on federally managed public lands.

The field hearing is primarily being conducted concerning the many United States Forest Service Travel Management Plans that will and have already closed many roads, trails and cross country motorized travel within the National Forest and the many potential severe negative impacts to the cultures and economies of the regions and counties of the west. Violations of 36 CFR 261.13 are subject to a fine of up to $5,000 fine or imprisonment for up to 6 months or both (18 U.S.C. 3571(e)). This prohibition applies regardless of the presence or absence of signs. This is part of what we can expect along with many other restrictions on our abilities to utilize the National Forest in Elko County.

The field hearing will be held at the Elko Convention Center on Monday, March 12, 2011from 1:00pm Pacific Time. Questions can be made to the Elko County Resource Management Department at 775-738-6816 extension 212.

"All it takes for Evil to prevail, is for enough good people to do nothing." I trap on mostly BLM right now, but do a lot of other hunting on USFS land. What these #%-#@@%@ need to remember is that "We the People" are their bosses, they are not the boss. Some of them feel that we are too stupid to manage our own lives and they feel they know best. Our job is to determine which of these political idiots are doing their will and not that of the people and show them at election time just how not stupid we are by voting them out!

Why is it that now a days its the few (tree hugger types) that get their will and way with our country and the majority don't?

Ya it is all pretty crazy. My family has been ranching here for a 50+ years and the government has done nothing but make life harder for them. Fires, a couple years back about bout burned half of northern NV, we are still trying to recover from that one. (grazing.)

For several years the forest service hasn't wanted to work on fixing up roads that really needed repair, so they close them instead. I used to guide in New Mexico and they were doing that down there a few years ago and then they decided that they didn't want anyone to be able to legally retrieve any game that they had harvested game off of their road ways with any type of a vehicle. For years it was illegal to drive off of roadways while you were hunting or trapping unless you were retrieving game and they decided that they didn’t like that either. In Colorado they have made large areas restricted to foot traffic only. The sad thing is, this is our land, the public and we can’t even use it. In the 70’s Jimmy Carter was the pres and he did a D2 Lands enactment in Alaska while I was living there. All of the sudden the places where we could once walk into and hunt, we no longer could. There were areas where no vehicles or snow mobiles were allowed and you couldn’t even camp in them. I wish you guys luck out west, but you will be fighting a stacked deck trying to stop any of the road or area closings.
