Jeers — To Idaho F&G Commission

In his weekly Cheers & Jeers column, Marty Trillhaase/Lewiston Tribune gives jeers to …to the Idaho Fish and Game Commission. The commission is opposing creating a Boulder-White Clouds National Monument. “Without state sovereignty, you won't have hunting, fishing and trapping in any meaningful way,” said Commission Chairman Fred Trevey of Lewiston. How would he know without first consulting groups such as the Idaho Conservation League? Negotiations with monument supporters could lead toward an agreement to secure hunting and fishing rights within any national monument proclamation President Barack Obama issues. This looks like Fish and Game extending political cover to Otter, who not only opposes the monument, but the much more flexible Boulder-White Clouds bill Congressman Mike Simpson could have passed with the governor's support. Full Cheers & Jeers column here.

Question: Do you support/oppose prospect of President Obama creating a Boulder-White Clouds National Monument?
