Wildlife’s Modern Management: Thousands of Trail Cameras

It doesn’t get any poorer than this. Wisconsin has decided, along with NASA (?) to litter the forests and fields with 6,000 trail cameras, make the photos accessible to the WORLD for identification, so that the fish and wildlife department can better manage wildlife. “Photos will be uploaded to a crowd-sourcing website; viewers will be […]

Maine’s Mangled Moose Management

Most every morning I get up and somewhere along the line I end up asking myself why I see things differently than others. I don’t know half the time if it’s a curse or a blessing. Once I had confidence that when Maine finished their moose study program, they would be able to come up […]

It’s Not What Wild Carnivores Do, Its About How Many Of them Are Doing It..

If they are over populated in some areas. As in wolves in Idaho..Wolves do this. Rip the Foetus out of the mother elk and eat it up.. More often than not the cow elk is left to rot..    

Won’t You Please Jump Into The 21st Century With The Stupid People?

I evolved to be like the rest of the organisms around me, I eat and a reproduce.. This is how we made it into the 21st century.. Not by licking lettuce..

GPS Radio Collars Tracking Maine Deer – WHY?

It Must Be The “New Way” We Are to Talk About Wildlife Management

An article in the Portland Press Herald informs readers that, according to Maine’s expert deer biologist, hunters should look at how the permit increase for […]

Societal Emotions and Ignorance Rule New Hampshire Fish and Game Management

Emotional idiots, who cannot see their own destructive ways, fueled by ignorance and hatred took over wildlife management at the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department, saying hunting and or trapping of 50 bobcats, out of 1,400 was a dangerous thing to do for a “recovering” population of bobcats. Even members of the New Hampshire […]

The Hocus-Pocus of Estimating Deer Harvest….or Something

I recall at a very young age learning the true meaning of the word “assume.” For those not fortunate to have had such a high degree of education, let me help you out – ASSUME = ASS(out of)U(and)ME. Yup! That’s what often happens. I was reading an article just a few minutes ago by someone […]

Reproduction and Nutrition of Desert Mule Deer With and Without Predation

Abstract Desert mule deer (Odocoileus hemionus eremicus) in central Arizona declined from 11 deer/km2in the early 1960s to 2 deer/km2 in 2006. We had the opportunity to examine the causes of desert mule deer population fluctuations in Arizona from 1960 to 2006 by contrasting deer density, body condition, productivity, and diet quality inside and outside […]
