FWS restores federal protections to Yellowstone grizzlies - posted 1 month ago

I completely disagree with this judge and FWS. This was a poor decision. Apparently, predator supporters forget about the other animals. If humans do not manage the population, the elk, deer, and moose suffer. This whole push for bears, wolves, and mountain lions has destroyed the elk, moose, and deer populations throughout the states affected by this decision. It is sad that the parties that push for these actions do not think beyond the one animal. I prefer elk, deer, and moose, but those animals do not garner the publicity. Apparently, elk, moose, and deer need better lawyers.

Supreme Court rules hovercraft can be used by Alaskan hunter - posted 6 months ago

I like the decision because the Supreme Court is recognizing state control. The state's should make these decisions. Although some may not like air-boats, this ruling helps folks that have atvs, snowmachines, or any type of fun recreational vehicle. Also Alaska is very difficult to access, so machines are a necessity.

MT FWP confirms surprise grizzly attack near Columbia Falls - posted 10 months ago

Too many bears. We need to eliminate a large portion of the bears so that hunters and people recreating in the woods can do so without the added risk. Montana fish and game is spending a lot of money and time on bears, which does not benefit us hunters. Hunters now face potential liability for killing a bear in defense because Montana fish and game is treating it like self-defense case. This is a bear, not a human. Kill the bear if it gets to close and go on because that is one less moose calf or elk calve being eaten.

No more federal protections for gray wolves? - posted 10 months ago

Hopefully the senate will approve this bill and let states control predator populations at the local level. The reality is that elk, deer, moose, and prey cannot sustain the harvest levels from wolves, bears, mountain lions, other predators, and humans combined. This is a simple economics problem, which requires a choice. I for one chose to have more elk, deer, and moose for people to harvest, not more wolves and other predators.

New study focuses on increase in Rocky Mountain National Park moose - posted 1 year ago

Transplant some of these guys up to Montana because the moose population has crashed with all the predators and mismanagement from Montana fish and game. Seems a lot of states are trying to reduce moose, elk, and deer populations while increasing bear and wolf populations.
