Natural Resource Important to Wyomingites

Wyoming Range

A majority of Wyoming’s voters think you can protect land and water and maintain a strong economy at the same time.  That’s according to a new poll of attitudes throughout the Rockies conducted for Colorado College in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Lori Weigel with the Republican polling firm, Public Opinion Strategies, also found near-unanimous support among Wyoming voters from both parties that national parks, forests, monuments and wildlife areas are “essential” to the state’s economy.  Yet another survey topic shows that voters approve of the state Legislature’s decision to dedicate 200-million dollars to the Wyoming Wildlife and Natural Resource Trust.  Trust Executive Director Bob Budd says that’s probably linked to the outdoors nature of the state’s residents. The report, released earlier this week, notes that the state is home to three top-10 US destinations for snowmobiling, top skiing destinations, and abundant camping and hunting opportunities.  Meanwhile, the report goes on that voters responding to the survey support energy development on public lands but want industry regulations to protect land, water, wildlife and quality of life.

  • Simple steps can help you get your goat - September 22, 2014
    In Wyoming, antelope hunting is often an afterthought. We tend to focus on elk, and deer are a close second. Not many of us do a whole lot of planning for our antelope hunts. Maybe that’s partly because compared to deer and especially elk, antelope hunting can be pretty easy. As long as you’re not […]
