Texas billionaires lock out hunters

In his Letters from the West feature, Rocky Barker/Statesman reports:
 
Steve Wolfinger was planning to go on what was his first Idaho elk hunt starting Saturday in Adams and Valley counties. But a week before he was planning to get on a jet to fly from his home in Arkansas, the 70-year-old got a letter from Regan Berkley, an Idaho Department of Fish and Game wildlife manager from McCall. She told him that private land recently owned by Potlatch Corp. that covers much of the unit where he planned to hunt is now closed. DF Development, the new owners of the 172,000 acres of timberland and a vast road system in Adams, Valley and Boise counties, informed Fish and Game that the land will no longer be open to hunting. More here.
 
Question: And you still want to privatize public land in Idaho?
