UT lawmaker proposes bill that would target predator populations to help game - posted 2 months ago

I support the hunting of lions and I live in California. We are used to being blamed for everything so no hard feelings. An adult lion eats a deer-size meal on average once a week. A lactating female requires a bit more. As the predator population increases this puts pressure on other species such as the endangered Sierra Nevada Bighorn as well. But specific to our decreasing Mule Deer populations, housing developments on winter range habitat, unusually heavy winters and episodes of draught and highways bisecting historic migration routes without wildlife over/under passes impacts the deer far more seriously. In other words improving habitat benefits deer more than removing predators. This said, I am not opposed to opening mountain lions to hunting.

Biologist attacked by grizzly bear says he was at fault - posted 5 months ago

I'm not a fan either but kudos to THC for bringing him into the studio and respectfully giving him the space to air his thoughts. I had an especially hard time getting over his self-righteousness but ultimately the pod cast was super entertaining and engaging. If all we hear are our own thoughts then we might as well talk to the mirror.

Washington State cancels wolf meetings - posted 6 months ago

It's not obvious from the above article who exactly is making these threats. Unless Marshall L has additional information I think we're making a baseless assumption.

California's lead ammo ban in effect July 1 - posted 10 months ago

I don't really have an argument against any of these posts although I think we may be over reacting (I hope anyway). My main request however, please never refer to any ammo as "cop killer"!
This is a term that was made up to scare the general public and I would caution all of us against adopting anti-gun language. Call it what it is, 5.56 steel ball or whatever. Thanks.

Idaho wolves killed to help struggling elk herd - posted 1 year ago

Thanks for sharing your thoughts everyone. I found them all very interesting and refreshing. Now let's relax and have the wildlife managers and state biologists make the call.
