To keep beef out of critical wildlife habitat. Then the BLM employees responsible for monitoring this wildlife, will drive right by holes in the fence for years. They will see beef inside these fenced areas and never do anything about them. Build a guzzler on BLM, fence it. Come back to check the fence and find someone cut fence and beef destroy the guzzler and in some cases the developed spring feeding it is destroyed. BLM just let it happen.
Its a total joke what the Clive Bundie type ranchers get by with I fixed a guzzler wire three years in a row.
My biggest disappointment was from a BLM range manager.. Some comment about are "we doing a dis service to game by giving them artificial water source ,",,
Hm lets see! cow eat all the grass during the green months, and greenery is gone in July August and September
Didnt know that about the ground he was on,..
I maybe should have stated more clearly. Running cows on public land is "their" land and often dont do as their lease requires. , maintaining fences, gates , water systems, roads. Some do but so many dont, Water systems in the desert where I use to hunt water systems are suppose to function until October first, Only a few were maintained properly
