Board: Increase county forest leases, don't terminate them

Email News Alerts

Hunting leases on Hubbard County land came under scrutiny Wednesday when commissioners said they were inundated over the weekend by angry calls from deer campers.


Those calls were apparently prompted by a forest committee member advising lessees the county would be terminating those leases.

No such thing will happen and commissioners suggested to Land Commissioner Mark Lohmeier that the county should offer even more leases to the public.
