The Forest Service has released the Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement and the Recreation Supply and Demand Analysis. Amazingly, the Forest Service's preferred alternative is to eliminate ALL semi-primitive non-motorized areas!
To justify the bizarre result (and the failure to consider in detail many reasonable alternatives which would have reduced the conflicts caused by allowing snowmobiling and firearm hunting virtually everywhere in the forests), the Forest Service literally made up things which it said the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals and the District Court held. I'll post detailed information soon about the numerous errors the Forest Service made in preparing the Draft SEIS and the Recreation Supply and Demand Analysis.
