    Just about any road in the Book Cliffs is a result of Oilfield traffic. Some of the wells are on older existing wells. I was on location to several of those wells last weeks on an area known as the "Divide" road. I believe that off-road four-wheeler traffic harms the Book Cliffs more than anything else in that area. We as hunters are too lazy to walk. You can see tracks all through out the area, through streams, around cedars, through the sage brush, and through the buck brush.

    Anadarko, like most farmers or ranchers, is one of the best stewards around. Their employees hunt and fish like most any one else. Why would they not want to take care of their environment?
    Management of this area is debatable. There may be too many permits for hunting. It is not a trophy area like it once was. It is a management area not a trophy area.

    Schools need the money and America needs energy independence. At the same time we need to be careful with environmental concerns I think all sides can be accommodated.

    If the legislature would send some decent money to the schools instead of just barely keeping them from starving, this would all be a moot point.
