Interior Department Expands Access for Hunting and Fishing

Over 850 new areas opened on public lands.

On Tuesday, Secretary of the Interior David Bernhardt announced that he would be directing the Interior Department to expand access of public land to the nation’s hunters and fishers. Over 850 areas to fish and hunt have been opened up, making it the largest expansion of hunting and fishing opportunities in U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service history.

Secretary Bernhardt said, “On the heels of President Trump signing the most significant conservation and recreation funding in U.S. history, providing nearly $20 billion over the next 10 years to fix and conserve the American people’s public lands, the Trump Administration has now made an additional 2.3 million acres accessible to new hunting and fishing opportunities.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • That God would guide Secretary Bernhardt as he leads the Department.
  • For the Interior Department to be good stewards of the land God has entrusted to the nation. 
  • For the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to preserve habitats across the nation.
