Buffalo Horn Land Exchange EA & Comments Submitted

The issue in this proposed Buffalo Horn land exchange near Meeker is whether the BLM will gain hunting grounds that are equal in quality to those they propose to trade away; and concern over the proposed reduction of the grazing rights of several family ranches. In May, we analyzed the alternatives, submitted comments and recommended that the proposed exchange would not be in the public interest.
