Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke announced Jan. 9 the creation of the Hunting and Shooting Sports Conservation Council.
“Hunters and anglers are the backbone of wildlife and habitat conservation in America,” said Zinke.
“Through the purchase of duck stamps, bows, ammo, firearms, and more, sportsmen and women contribute billions of dollars to conservation,” he said.
“From my perspective, the more sportsmen we have in the woods and waters, the better our wildlife and habitat will be,” he said.
“The Council will be made up of experts that share their knowledge, experience, and recommendations on a number of policy proposals put before them, as well as helping the Departments come up with innovative ideas to improve the health of wildlife and their habitat and increase sportsmen access on public and private lands.”
The council was created to provide the Interior and Agriculture secretaries with input regarding policies pertaining to wildlife and habitat conservation, according to the Interior Department’s companion announcement.
The Council will examine ways to benefit wildlife resources; encourage partnership among the public, the sporting conservation organizations, state, tribal, territorial, and federal government; and benefit recreational hunting and recreational shooting sports, Interior said.
Zinke, a former Montana congressman and a combat veteran of the SEALs, who retired from the Navy as a commander, has set out to be the most activist Interior secretary on behalf of the sportsman and fishermen.
In less than 12 months in office, Zinke has reversed an order that would have banned lead ammo and tackle on national wildlife refuge lands, expanded hunting and fishing opportunities at 10 national wildlife refuges lands and created a “one-stop” website for all hunting and fishing opportunities on public lands.
The secretary has also directed his department’s bureau’s to open hunting and fishing on all national monument lands where legally allowed and finalized a land acquisition to make the Sabinoso Wilderness Area accessible to hunters.
Nominations to the council should be directed to: Joshua Winchell, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, National Wildlife Refuge System, 5275 Leesburg Pike, Falls Church, VA 22041-3803; or emailed to: [email protected]
The council is expected to meet twice a year, and at such other times as designated by the secretary. Once the council is formally established it will have a two-year charter.

Joe Rogan Takes Joe Biden To Task: “Trump Will Eat Him Alive”
“He doesn’t know what he’s talking about when he’s talking.”
Joe Rogan took presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden to task on his podcast Friday, calling out Democrats for refusing to admit that Biden appears to be cognitively challenged and lacking mental acuity.
Biden expressed exasperation with leading Democrats for refusing to consider that the 77-year old former Vice President might not be at his mental prime.
“You have to be able to call out s*** that’s wrong on your side. That’s the problem the Democratic Party is having right now with that Joe Biden guy. You guys have to be able to call it out. You can’t let this slide, because everybody else sees it, and Trump is going to eat him alive.”
Rogan had earlier pointed to Biden’s tendency towards serial gaffes as a disqualifier for the presidency, expressing his view that Biden’s cognitive decline was obvious and visible.
“He stumbles through s***, he forgets what he’s talking about… The guy can barely remember what he’s talking about while he’s talking.”
Joe Biden has claimed that he’s running for the Senate instead of the presidency, confused his wife with his sister during a Super Tuesday victory speech, and stated that 150 million Americans have died of gun violence in the past two decades.
Watch the candid segment of the Joe Rogan Experience here:
Ironically, while Rogan’s primary audience appears to be younger conservative men, the longtime MMA announcer leans to the left of the political spectrum and endorsed Bernie Sanders last year.
Establishment Democrats have sought to shut down discussion of Biden’s mental state, likening serious questions as to the prospect of the former Vice President’s potential cognitive decline to be “disinformation campaigns.”
Should they prove unable to simply silence questions as to the party elder’s acuity, they’ll have no one to blame but themselves.
