you would like to share for the record, the site and the upcoming
Crazy Mountains interactive map...
email Kathryn QannaYahu


Your nationwide public lands roads and trails access are in jeopardy (est. 30% unperfected).
Your federally produced maps removing our public roads and trails are at stake.
The culture of fear for our federal employees that manage our public lands and resources,
their removal or hamstringing is increasing.

If our Public Trust stewards are prevented from doing their jobs by privatizing forces,
how will the public's resources, lands and access
be maintained and protected for future generations?

The Crazy Mountains in Montana have been a public access hotbed, beginning in 1940. As then Forest Service Supervisor G. E. Martin writes detailing the variety of uses documented in the historic Crazy Mountains, including mining, timber, grazing, trappers, hunters and recreation, "At no time was travel over the roads and trails restricted until October 1940 when Van Cleve locked the gate during the hunting season. In 1941 this was done again. In 1942 the gate was again locked before the opening of the hunting season and was still locked on April 24, 1943."

I requested a FOIA from the Custer Gallatin National Forest for documents relating to the public access situations in the East Side of the Crazy Mountains in the fall of 2016, as well as a current one for the transfer debacle of Alex Sienkiewicz, the former Yellowstone Ranger District, involving Letters of of false allegations from the Montana Farm Bureau, Montana Outfitters and Guides (which land owner Chuck Rein is the Vice President of), a handful of local landowners, including the Sweet Grass County Attorney Pat Dringman's wife, Page Carroccia Dringman, and Senator Steve Daines (R-MT) and Rep. Pete Sessions (R-TX).

Public Access Storm Brewing Over the Crazy Mountains

Have you been in the Crazy Mountains?

If you have been in the Crazy Mountains...

  • perhaps you received a citation when you were on a FS Trail on their map;
  • perhaps you have been on one of these contested trail and you thankfully did not ask landowner permission or sign in and would like to add your account to the prescriptive easement history;
  • perhaps you would just like to share your story and/or some pictures of what these particular public lands and access mean to you?

If so, please contact Kathryn :

I beg you to show the same level of defense for our public access and Alex Sankiewicz's reinstatement as Yellowstone District Ranger, by raising your concerns to the same officials that the privatizers just did with false allegations. Because when you see the roll out of information to come and the players agendas, you will agree, this isn't just about one man and his job, it is about what he was doing as a steward of our public lands that others greedily desire for their own.
