I do not support this project. The railroad would cut across the oldest and largest block management site in the state - an area with over 1,000 hunter days per season. This land boasts some of the biggest bulls and bucks in the state, along with antelope, upland game birds, and other wildlife. The railroad would fragment their habitat, cut through private ranches, disrupt the local way of life , and increase railcar traffic through every community down the line.
