"Transfer of Federal Public Lands to the State" Has been part of the official MT republican party platform, and the national party platform for years. Just look at some of the talk coming from the Utah delegation. So to say nobody has actually proposed doing anything is false. Its not a very big step to go from transfer of federal lands to the states, and states selling off land. Its happened repeatedly across the west with state lands. Look at Texas. I'm all for more local input, but Land transfer is a "cold dead hands" issue for me. You may feel otherwise. And as far as not having a hunting license for 6 years. Big whoop. I don't think my dad has purchased a license in the past 6 years, but he's sure did the 5 years prior. Life changes, especially when you have to spend the majority of your time in DC. I'd be shocked if Rosendale has EVER hunted.
