Cryptome's 21 August 2007 headline for the presidential EO Bush signed five days earlier was "Prez Expands Sport to Kill-Maim Americans."

Hmmmmm.....But seriously, folks; what could those fascists be up to with such a strange order?

expansion and enhancement of hunting opportunities and
the management of game species and their habitat.

declining trends, implement actions that expand and
enhance hunting opportunities for the public;
(b) Consider the economic and recreational values of
hunting in agency actions, as appropriate;
(c) Manage wildlife and wildlife habitats on public
lands in a manner that expands and enhances hunting
opportunities, including through the use of hunting in
wildlife management planning;
(d) Work collaboratively with State governments to
manage and conserve game species and their habitats in
a manner that respects private property rights and
State management authority over wildlife resources;
(e) Establish short and long term goals, in cooperation
with State and tribal governments, and consistent with
agency missions, to foster healthy and productive
populations of game species and appropriate
opportunities for the public to hunt those species;

programs and recommendations of comprehensive planning
efforts such as State Wildlife Action Plans, the North
American Waterfowl Management Plan, and other range-
wide management plans for big game and upland game
birds;

wildlife agencies, and, as appropriate, consult with
the Sporting Conservation Council and other
organizations, with respect to the foregoing Federal
activities.
Sec. 3. North American Wildlife Policy Conference. The
Chairman of the Council on Environmental Quality
(Chairman) shall, in coordination with the appropriate
Federal agencies and in consultation with the Sporting
Conservation Council and in cooperation with State and
tribal fish and wildlife agencies and the public,
convene not later than 1 year after the date of this
order, and periodically thereafter at such times as the
Chairman deems appropriate, a White House Conference on
North American Wildlife Policy (Conference) to
facilitate the exchange of information and advice
relating to the means for achieving the goals of this
order.
Sec. 4. Recreational Hunting and Wildlife Resource

consistent with applicable law and subject to the

than 1 year following the conclusion of the Conference,
a comprehensive Recreational Hunting and Wildlife
Conservation Plan that incorporates existing and
ongoing activities and sets forth a 10-year agenda for
fulfilling the actions identified in section 2 of this
order.
Sec. 5. Judicial Review. This order is not intended to,
and does not, create any right, benefit, trust
responsibility, or privilege, substantive or
procedural, enforceable at law or in equity by any
party against the United States, its departments,
agencies, instrumentalities, or entities, its officers
or employees, or any other person.
