McMillan runs an oil explorations company and is chair of Roswell’s First Federal Savings Bank. His 55,000-acre Three Rivers Cattle Co. ranch ranks him as the state’s 23rd largest landowner—edging out ABC’s Sam Donaldson. When New West Research did an open-records request to learn which landowners were asking the federal government to exterminate wildlife on their land, Colin McMillan’s name was on the list. He asked Uncle Sam to expend the public’s purse to snuff out coyotes, mountain lions and black bears on his ranch. McMillan sent this request to the same federal government that lists the black bear as a threatened species. To deal with the Russian bear, President Bush appointed McMillan as an assistant secretary of defense in ‘90. McMillan made a failed bid for the U.S. Senate in ’94. He considered running for Rep. Joe Skeen’s seat in 2000—until Skeen decided to run for reelection.
