The U.S. Department of Agriculture says it’s concerned about job losses at the nation’s largest hunter farms.
In a letter to the House Committee on Agriculture, the USDA says it has received more than 8,000 comments and is working with hunters to identify what is causing the job losses and what can be done to protect hunters.
The agency also says it is reviewing the Department of Labor’s proposed rule that would require hunters to be on a hunter’s “fear list” and required that hunters obtain written certification from a hunter supervisor before they can purchase, harvest, or possess game.
The proposed rule is currently under review by the Federal Register.
Fears of job losses were on the minds of hunters as they watched the USDA letter.
“We feel we’re being pushed into a corner, where if you go to work, you’re going to have to worry about that,” said David Jones, a hunter from Pennsylvania who works for a private company and has been hunting for 10 years.
Jones has heard from hunters who are losing their jobs and have filed a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission, the Department Of Agriculture and the Bureau of Land Management.
Hunter’s rights activists say the USDA’s concern about job loss could have far-reaching implications for the hunting industry.
For years, the hunting business has faced some of the worst economic downturns in decades, as hunting-related employment in the U.s. plummeted and industry leaders and consumers saw the impact of climate change.
While the federal government is currently studying whether to change the way the Bureau Of Land Management tracks hunting, many hunters, hunters’ rights advocates and state officials have said they’re concerned about the rule change.
The agency could potentially be the final nail in the coffin for the industry, Hunter’s Rights President and CEO Tom Tuchman said in a statement.
More than 80 percent of the U,S.
hunting population hunts outdoors.
Many hunters say they don’t think the rule will impact their jobs.
“I think it’s a waste of money and a waste for the taxpayers, who have paid for this,” said Hunter’s Right President and owner of The Huntmaster Hunter’s Ranch, Greg Bensinger.
Hunters have been on edge since President Donald Trump announced he would withdraw the United States from the Paris climate agreement in November.
Trump’s decision to withdraw the U.”s participation in the accord led to a spike in hunting fatalities in the US, which had previously seen no spike.
According to the US Census Bureau, more than 6 million hunters live in the United Kingdom, which is home to more than 1.3 million hunters.
