For those of you who hunt in the national forest of the west, Congressman Greg Walden, (R-OR-2nd district) has written H.R. 4272 a bill that requires the forest service to reopen all the roads in the national forest of the west. The forest service must then submit to the counties that the national forest sets in what roads and why they should be closed. It is then up to the county to decide if the road should be closed or not. If you are interested in this you need to contact your senator or congress person and ask them to sign on to the bill. There isn't any reason the bill can't be amended to include blm land as well. For those of you in the midwest and back east, most of the national forests of the west have 50-90% of the roads locked, gated closed or in some way blocked.
