Study: A deadly spring for NH moose calves

*Editor’s Note* – Of the millions of dollars we have spent to pay wildlife managers and it appears they still haven’t come to terms with the fact that managing wildlife involves manipulating populations that create healthy numbers at sustainable levels. Perhaps if we spend enough money (I doubt it seriously) in order that these “managers” […]

Rational Predator Control for Sensible Wildlife Management

Steve Alder, executive director of Idaho for Wildlife, was quoted in the Lewiston Tribune: Steve Alder of Lewiston, executive director of Idaho For Wildlife, said elk have no other relief from wolves in remote areas such as the Lolo zone. He contends wolves in areas closer to rural populations are exposed to higher hunting pressure […]

Maine Court Will Consider Appeal of Earlier Moot Decision on MDIFW Campaign Conduct

According to an article in the Bangor Daily News, the Maine Supreme Court will consider an appeal of a lower court ruling declaring a court challenge as “moot” because the lawsuit never came to the courts until after the referendum was voted on. The appeal comes from the totalitarian group, Mainer’s for Fair Bear Hunting […]

Christie in N.H.: ‘For all of you who want bobcats killed, I’m your guy’

*Editor’s Note* – If Christie answering a question about whether he would support a proposed hunting/trapping season to cull 50 bobcats isn’t bad enough, consider that some person(s) had nothing more important to ask. It reveals the extent of the animal perversion in this psychopathic society in which we now live. “I now have a […]

Predator-Prey Study: Wolves not threat to deer you may think

*Editor’s Note* – I have not read the entire report referenced in the below link. Most of the information presented is sensible and seems to substantiate most all other real scientific studies on predator prey relationships. However, it still amazes me that Mr. Beyer, one of the DNR researchers makes some puzzling and seemingly contradictory […]

How Accurate Are State Deer Harvest Estimates?

According to an article found at Outdoor Life: “Hunters want it [deer harvest estimate] to be important, but they also don’t believe it. They say how can you know how many deer were killed if you didn’t check my deer? And that’s true. These estimates aren’t down to the individual deer, but scientifically this is an accurate […]

Philosophical Shift in the Way the State Views Wildlife

As if it is needed, we have further proof that we are overcome by a Totalitarian Scientific Dictatorship. In an article I read recently (linked to below) it appears the author voiced some concern over the most recent resignation of wildlife Commissioner Jim Kellogg in California. With his “retirement” and previous resignation of other members […]

Hunters Sometimes Might Be Stupid and Lazy

Very early on in my writing career, I was told by veteran writers never to talk badly about your reading audience. That is probably true. However, if my reading audience doesn’t change their ways at certain things, I won’t have an audience left. So, here goes! If you believe that collecting data on harvested deer […]

Delaware Discovers High Mortality From Collars, Maine Adds More Collars

In Delaware, researchers discover that collars placed around the necks of deer, for an ongoing study, resulted in neck injures and death. Researchers expected a percentage of study animals would be killed or injured by hunters, vehicles and disease, but Hopkins, about a dozen other landowners participating in the study, state and University of Delaware […]

Tallies from hunting show that deer, bear and turkeys are doing well in N.H. – moose, not so much

…although it may seem counterintuitive, hunting seasons are one of the best ways to determine the size and health of wild animal populations. A popular hunting season can send thousands – tens of thousands in the case of deer season – into the woods looking for specific species. Because hunters must register their kills for […]
