Rosendale doesn’t support hunters

Print Article

To the editor:

“Those who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones.” Someone should have told that to Matt Rosendale before he tried to smear Jon Tester’s impeccable record of supporting Montana sportsmen.

As a wildlife biologist and life-long hunter concerned about public lands and access to hunting, I believe Rosendale’s positions are bad for Montana hunters.

Although Rosendale wants you to believe he promotes sportsmen’s values, Montana hunters won’t forget his earlier support for transferring federal lands to the state. He claims he’s changed his tune, but you wouldn’t know it based on his recent votes on the Land Board. He opposed acquiring the Horse Creek Easement, which will open up permanent public hunting access on 20,000 acres of land in eastern Montana. No surprises here: he’s a developer who made a living turning farmland into subdivisions.

Having a hunting license isn’t a prerequisite to advocate for sportsmen. Tester has been our biggest supporter in D.C. the entire time he’s been a senator, when he’s had a hunting license and when he hasn’t.

Actions mean something. I support Jon Tester, a man who fights for hunters year after year.
