FWS restores federal protections to Yellowstone grizzlies -

I literally can drive no more than an 80 mile round trip from my house any day of the week and with minimal effort see between 6-10 mature grizzly bears, and that isn't even counting the cubs, usually twins or triplets. This is a complete abuse by enviro groups and liberal judges of the Endangered Species Act! It served its purpose, the species is recovered, now let state wildlife agencies manage them.
Wolves went through the same process, and we are managing them at the state level and there are still plenty, if not to many, of them on the landscape!
Endangered Species Act is a great thing, but please lets stop abusing it!
This should come as no surprise that decisions are being made by judges and lawsuits put forth by enviro groups that don't live with or deal with these over populated bears! Decisions are not based on science or common sense and therefor the true conservationists, hunters and wildlife managers, are not allowed to conserve and manage for a healthy population that can co-exist in todays world!
Archery training tips to become a better bowhunter -
posted 6 months ago
I've been archery hunting the mountain west for 24 years now, harvested over 40 bull elk, 20 mule deer with several over the 180" mark, two mountain goats, and several coues and whitetail deer all while hunting DIY. I have hunted in just about every western state with archery tackle and feel as though I've seen about every situation imaginable! I only state these on the premise that I still fell like I learn something new every hunt, and am FAR from an expert!!!
All these tips can be very helpful when applied during practice sessions. Much like any article, pick out the sections you like and utilize them, and if nothing else to increase your repertoire as an all around archer. If there is one thing I feel like an expert within the archery field, it is that when you think you are an expert and have mastered everything, you will most certainly be humbled in your next archery hunt!
