DENVER --  A new report released by the Sportsmen for Responsible Energy Development coalition and endorsed by several fishing and hunting businesses urges smart-from-the-start planning, public engagement and consideration of the long-term impacts on fishing and hunting opportunities. The report, Lessons Learned: A Blueprint for Securing our Energy Future While Preserving America’s Sporting Heritage,” features examples of where oil and gas production was well-planned, where it wasn’t and where the potential remains to do things right.

As the Trump administration explores ways to streamline and speed up approval of leases and drilling on public lands, it’s more important than ever to promote responsible energy development and ensure that high-quality opportunities to hunt and fish on public lands are sustained long into the future.
