Dear Senator Patty Murray, Senator Maria Cantwell & Rep. Derek Kilmer 


As hunters, anglers, or guides who hunt & fish on the Olympic Peninsula, we support the Wild Olympics Wilderness and Wild & Scenic Rivers Act, because it will permanently protect salmon streams on Olympic National Forest for our future & enhance access for Sportsmen. 


Wild Olympics would permanently protect critical habitat, headwaters & salmon streams on Olympic National Forest that are currently threatened by 

extreme "public land-transfer" & "Logging Without Laws" legislation & the new push for small-hydro development on our rivers. These sensitive spawning grounds are at risk as private industry & small-hydro developers try to rollback temporary safeguards for our public lands. Only full, Congressionally-designated Wilderness & Wild & Scenic River safeguards will permanently protect salmon streams for our future.


Wild Olympics would enhance access without closing any roads. The final proposal removed all roads from the proposed wilderness, ensuring Wild Olympics will not close any roads or affect any road or trailhead access. New wilderness areas proposed for Olympic National Forest could greatly expand the areas open for the early season High Buck Hunt on the Peninsula*Wild & Scenic River designation not only protects a river’s free flowing character, it also protects & enhances river access, fishing & boating & attracts additional funding for restoration & recreation projects. Please support this balanced plan to protect hunting & fishing on the Olympic Peninsula. (*Confirmed by WDFW)
