New Resource Enforcement Plan for Little Fish Lake JMA?

A new project appeared in ePlanning yesterday but no documents were posted.

The comment period for the Draft EA would run from May 11 to June 10.

The Proposed Action would remove excess horses and apply population suppression of unspecified type to reduce growth rates.

The scope may include the Little Fishlake HMA, managed by the BLM, and the Little Fishlake WHT, managed by the Forest Service.

The Joint Management Area covers approximately 104,000 acres west of the Pancake HMA in central Nevada and has a combined AML of 132.

The stocking rate allowed by plan is 1.3 horses per thousand acres, in line with the target rate of one wild horse per thousand acres (27,000 animals on 27 million acres).

The Western Watersheds map indicates both areas are subject to permitted grazing.

An announcement soliciting public input may or may not appear on the BLM news site.

The WHT is in the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest.
