Good Riddance (and don’t let the door hit you in the…)

by James Beers Two years ago I wasted quite a bit of time opposing the Minnesota DNR decree to impose a ban on using any lead ammunition on State Wildlife Areas.  During this thorough waste of time (it was a simple government decree in a decree-friendly state based on nonsense with no possibility of any […]

Advice Worth the Cost

By James Beers Congressman Ryan Zinke, Republican Representative for the entire state of Montana, has been named by President-elect Trump as his pick for the Secretary of the Interior. I subsequently received the following inquiry (along with many others) from a group for whom I have high regard.  It is with honest forethought that I […]

Minnesota Wolves: No Kudos from Here

Risky Business…or You’ve Proven My Point

Benevolent Wolves & Stubborn States

*Editor’s Note* – I have taken the liberty to highlight the paragraph that I think is the absolute best. It sums it all up. By James Beers The following is a response to two assertions about wolves in Wyoming and my recent article about the recent elk predation by wolves on 19 elk in one March […]

The Cover-Up of Wolves and What They DO!

By James Beers Please note the picture below.  It is a late-March of 2016 picture from Wyoming and you will probably never see it again nor even hear of it.  You see: –       Wolves don’t do such things. –       Elk, like Minnesota moose, are disappearing due to global warming and ticks and definitely not wolf […]

Wolf “Sensitivity” on the Great Plains

By James Beers The above [please follow this link] was sent to me by a friend in Florida.  While he is embroiled in “dealing” with the USFWS and the State of Florida regarding Florida “Panthers”: he recognized immediately 1.what is going on in Iowa; 2. its similarities to how Florida “Panthers” have bollixed up Florida […]
