Anglers And Outfitters Go To Washington

Laramie, Wy –
A group of western anglers and hunters converged on capital hill this week trying to get provisions curtailing wildlife protections removed from the proposed Energy Bill. Pinedale's Courtney Skinner joined the group and met with congressional representatives from the west, begging them to protect wildlife from mineral development. Skinner is very concerned about the impacts gas development could have on a migration corridor in Western Wyoming. He says the impact on the hunting industry could be devastating.
