This undated photo shows Wayne Hage riding his horse on Table Mountain, Nev.  For decades Nevada cattle rancher Wayne Hage took the federal government to court, challenging its decision to tightly regulate herd grazing on huge swaths of federal lands that had been used by ranchers like him for more than a century. The government's increased regulation was done in the name of conservation and greater public access, but the restricted access for ranchers became the poster-child for a “Sagebrush Rebellion,” a bitter battle between fiercely independent cattle wranglers and Washington’s tighter regulation of public lands.
