The Idaho Wildlife Federation wrote Gov. Otter asking for his support for legislation designating the Scotchman Peaks as Wilderness. Executive Director Brian Brooks wrote “… we support wilderness designation that will protect quality hunting, fishing, and other traditional uses [in the Scotchman Peaks]. By establishing Scotchman Peaks as officially designated wilderness, the area would have the highest level of protection available for natural, historical and cultural resources, ensuring that future generations of hunters and anglers will always have truly wild places to visit in North Idaho.”
