Montana moves forward with grizzly bear management plan for Northern Continental Divide Ecosystem - posted 9 months ago

Hey Warren glad you are interested. I don’t exactly know what to do about it either. All I know is it has me so fired up i am not going to just sit still about it. That gets us no where. I would say to start with some emails to the MT FWP director Martha Williams. Phone 406-444-3186. Email Martha.Williams@mt.gov and also Ken McDonald chief wildlife division administrator. Phone 406-444-5645 email kmcdonald@mt.gov. We really need to voice our opinion if we want to get things changed.

Montana moves forward with grizzly bear management plan for Northern Continental Divide Ecosystem - posted 9 months ago

This is nothing more than an all out attack against hunters. The population of grizzlies is at an all time high and are moving rapidly into new areas that historically have not been populated with grizzlies. There is absolutely no reason not to allow a regulated hunting season. There will be at least 25 to 50 bears killed anyway by the US Wildlife Service’s per year from bears that are pushed out of their territory into places they will get into trouble I.e. farms, orchards, bird feeders, and garbage. Also they will be killed when they attack and maul hikers. They have had many generations to have become unafraid of people. They are very smart and learn quickly that people are not something to be afraid of mainly because they haven’t been hunted in at least 30 years. They have lost that healthy respect of humans and we will see many more grizzly attacks in the future. This is nothing more than a political pandering to the people that truely don’t understand wildlife management through the use of hunting. Hunters have paid the majority of the bills that finance the management of all wildlife. It’s not fair to anyone to mismanage predators such as bears and wolves at the sake of the very people that finance wildlife management. A very good example is the wolf fiasco that decimated the moose and elk herds for 15 years before any real management started. Despicable.
