Feb 9, 2018 Secretarial Order 3362 was issued by the Secretary of the Interior in 2018 to improve the quality of big-game winter range and migration corridor habitat on western federal lands. It directs appropriate bureaus within the Department of the Interior to work in close partnership with the states of Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah, Washington and Wyoming to enhance and improve the quality of big-game winter range and migration corridor habitat on federal lands under the management jurisdiction of Interior in a way that both recognizes state authority to conserve and manage big-game species and respects private property rights. Each state created a state action plan in response to the secretarial order.
