The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service (FWS) want the Hammond Ranch, according to the Spring edition of RANGE magazine, an award-winning publication that advocates commonsense solutions to problems facing people who live and work on the land.
At press time, Bundy sons, Ammon and Ryan, with armed friends, were protesting the Hammonds’ sentence, holed up in the refuge visitor center “until the Hammonds are set free.” [Updated: Both Bundy sons have since been arrested and are being held without bail]. Meanwhile, President Obama has released 195,900 felons early (some guilty of homicide, rape and kidnapping) while two good ranchers are languishing in prison.

It bears repeating that, according to Hadley, “President Obama has released 195,900 felons early (some guilty of homicide, rape and kidnapping) while two good ranchers are languishing in prison.” Supporters have set up a fund to help the Hammonds protect their land from outside sources. Donations can be made to: The Hammond Family, c/o Sandra Carlon at U.S. Bank, 493 N. Broadway, Burns, OR 97720. They are also asking that letters be sent to President Obama asking for clemency for Dwight and Steven Hammond.

Please add and include Bullwhacker Road History in your article. This was part of our ranch. We suffered tremendous losses at the hands of the BLM also. That full story has not been told. It was more then just about a road. The declared Monument area was half our lease and we owned the only access into a vast majority of that area. Thank you
We always hear about the basis but how can you use it to make marketing decisions?
