Should Fish and Game Agencies Ask Hunters for Help?

Craig Dougherty from Outdoor Life writes that fish and wildlife agencies ought to ask hunters for help with their deer management. “For years I have been arguing (and pleading) that under staffed agencies need to make better use of the millions of deer hunters who walk the woods annually. They are more than just another […]

Ask a Biolo”jest”?

A few days ago I was reading another explanation as to why Maine was going to seriously increase the number of “Any-Deer Permits” for the upcoming deer hunting season when everyone is wondering when, if ever, the deer herd in the Pine Tree State is going to recover. This is what one particular “biolojest” said […]

A Wolf Is A Wolf Is A Wolf Just A Good Wolf Just Because They Say So

All things positive about wolves have been evolving over the years while all things negative about wolves has been suppressed and swept under the rug.. Thus any balance sharing the positives and negatives which justifies management of wolves for various purposes such as positive elk herd growth for the preservation of consumptive use multiple use […]

Evidently Global Warming is Causing More Moose in Connecticut

…Or something. Ridgefield, Connecticut, where I have heard that at Trick or Treat time, butlers, dressed in black tie and tails, answer the door presenting the greedy little monsters with one-pound Hershey bars on a silver platter, is considering difficulties in what to do with a growing moose population. Oh, the confusion! Oh, what a […]

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.. And Not by making pets out of other organisms.. Ecology like psychiatry is pseudo science. Social Behaviorism. It’s complete bunkum BS. “The branch of biology […]

GPS Radio Collars Tracking Maine Deer – WHY?

“In use since 1950s, Maine’s deer allocation system has worked very successfully; however, with a changing climate, changing landscapes, and perhaps, missing data for the 2 extremes of our winter weather – the very mild and the very severe – it was time for the WSI system to be re-evaluated. Kyle Ravana, the lead MDIFW […]

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

First, let’s dispense with what we are told are the reasons we shouldn’t react to the increase or decrease in the number permits issued for lottery, to harvest deer and/or moose. 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 […]
