Backcountry Hunters and AnglersMISSOULA, Mont. -( The fall 2017 issue of Backcountry Journal is landing in BHA members’ mailboxes now. Here’s a look at some of the highlights:

Speechless: Dreams, Nightmares & Wyoming Moose: BHA life member Jared Oakleaf shares how a typo almost cost him his once-in-a-lifetime moose hunt. What starts as a nightmare turns into a legend when Oakleaf conquers unfamiliar territory to encounter the moose of a lifetime.

A Conversation with Remi Warren: TV host, guide and writer Remi Warren talks with BHA Intern Ryan Hughes and Journal Editor Sam Lungren about conservation, his career in guiding and TV, and his spirit animal.

Sabinoso Wilderness, New Mexico: Ryan Hughes writes about New Mexico’s Sabinoso Wilderness, America’s only landlocked wilderness area – 16,000 wild acres completely surrounded by private property. A plan for public access has been forged, but Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke still needs to approve the deal.

My Chums: David Zoby doesn’t understand why chum salmon don’t get respect. During a solo trip to Alaska’s Katchemak Bay State Park, he finds that chums provided him with sport, food and friendship.

Sweat Equity: Mark Hurst shares the story of a four-year hunt for the wisest deer he’s ever pursued. With Virginia deer populations shrinking and hunter numbers decreasing, Hurst ponders the continuing value of doing it the hard way, earning tough deer with sweat and blood.

Public Waters Access: BHA Intern Maddie Vincent writes about access issues across the country. Public access to Louisiana’s Lake Catahoula, a popular duck hunting destination, could be lost following a court case being deliberated now. South Dakota sportsmen and women face a similar challenge to accessing “non-meandered” lakes. In a bright spot, Washington BHA chapter leaders helped win public access to Dry Lake in the north-central part of the Evergreen State.

Backcountry Journal is distributed to members, regional BLM and Forest Service offices, and the home and D.C. offices of legislators from states where BHA has chapters. It also is available in a digital flipbook edition, available to members on the BHA website. Join BHA today to get your copy.

    1. Please inform yourselves before casting ridiculous accusations. Please? BHA is NOT an anti-hunting organization.

    2. For those who keep asking “who is/are these people. Come on, do you use Google? Stop waiting for someone else to do everything for you. Everything about them, from officers to financial is right on the Internet. Don’t be so lazy.

    3. Will Ammoland tell us who the leadership of this organization actually is? What is the origin of this organization? How is it funded? What is there political platform? If Ammoland will not you must research them. You will see who this organization actually represents.

    4. This group would put all federal land in untouchable monument land if they could. I have no idea why Ammoland keeps giving these anti hunting anti fishing dweebs a platform,but I wish they would stop.

    5. Do NOT support this group. They are a false flag, anti-hunting, pro-government keeping large tracts of land so hunters and fishermen can NEVER have access to them.
