    I predict the State and Herbert will stubbornly stick to their guns. There is a very small group of locals in San Juan and surrounding counties and towns. It’s important to point out that Monument status does not preclude hunting, fishing, grazing and some off-road travel. What will most likely happen is that some OR activity and ATV travel will be curtailed and restricted to designated routes. The area is not closed entirely to vehicular and off-road travel or other traditional activities. Mining is not permitted. Will there be some inconvenience and some change? Of course, but it won’t be drastic. So the State of Utah is going to lose OR and, eventually the entire battle after having spent millions on a futile effort that just does not have the support of most in Utah or the nation. What a waste and how DUMB!
