Sportsmen continue to speak out against federal lands transfer

We sat in a bed of last fall’s leaves, wet from mist and branches dripping on our heads. We were silent, listening to the forest’s sounds.

Despite the feeling of stillness from a heavy blanket of fog, the mountain seemed impossibly loud. A crow called in the distance. Songbirds flitted through the trees. Raindrops fell onto the forest floor.

We strained to hear the distinct gobble of a male turkey over the cacophony of nature’s music.

It struck me: This forest, with its unique mixture of ironwood from eastern landscapes, paper birch from Canada’s boreal forest and ponderosa pines from the Rockies, belonged to me. And my husband. And our friend.

It belongs to you, too.
