Interesting natural resource politics in one of the crucial senate races in the West. Check out the comments below for a very lively interaction between the author and several activist readers.

Sportsmen sealed reelection for Sen. Jon Tester

Other notes: Sen. Tester is an organic farmer from Big Sandy, and was a speaker on our Montana Afoot and Afloat course for several years (he’s a bit too busy these days). Author Ben Long has spoken to our Cycle the Rockies course. Comment-er Matt Koehler is with Missoula’s WildWest Institute, Kieran Suckling is Director if the Center for Biological Diversity, a very litigious (and effective) conservation group from Arizona.
