Hungry Grizzly Bears in Yellowstone Likely to Cause Increased Human/Bear Encounters

It is a common natural phenomenon that food for wild animals comes in cycles. Ever since I can remember, mast crops, such as wild nuts and berries come in various amounts depending on several things that effect growth.

According to a report by Thomson Reuters Foundation, due to a minimal crop of available foods for grizzly and black bears, Yellowstone Park authorities are warning visitors that bears will be hungry and looking for food. Because of this natural shortage bears are bound to encounter human beings, partly because the humans are a food source….directly or indirectly.

The author of the article has regurgitated the overused excuse, or coveryourass du jour, that the lack of nuts is caused by climate change…..without offering any definition. Invoking “climate change” is kind of like Article 134 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice, i.e when you can’t or don’t want to find the truth, simply blame it on climate change.

I remember seeing a poster in the coach’s office in high school when I played football. It read something like this”

Rule #1 The coach is always right.
Rule #2 Refer to Rule #1

This may now be rewritten to read”

Rule #1 Climate change is to blame for everything.
Rule #2 See Rule #1.

Predicting a Devastating Future is Simple When You Are Causing the Devastation

To most, the article in the Mail Online of how the big brains of the world are preparing for what is going to be the demise of the planet and all the people on it, is frightening. I find it ironically laughable; mostly due to the fact that there are none so blind as those who will not see.

If you read this article, what it is at the top level is not a prediction but a warning to us dispensable subjects how we are going to die…..or at least that is their plan. The “big brains” referred to here are, in fact, the ones behind the laundry list of things “human-caused” they are trying to tell us will kill us, i.e. crippling cyber attacks, killer computers, release of engineered diseases, extreme weather events, fast spreading pandemics, wars, food shortages. However, these evil propagators of Satanic work promise that they will, “devise ways of ‘ensuring our own species has a long-term future.” But they aren’t telling us that “our own species” doesn’t include you or I. We are not of the “posterity.”

What is clearly visible, to those with vision, is that the creators of the means for human destruction are claiming to be devising ways to stop their own plans for human destruction. They are perpetuating the fear in all of us in order that they may present their own “savior” and we will eagerly follow.

Should you choose, you may continue to bury your head in the sand.

Seriously! Who’s Lying Here?

Public Comment Period Extended for National Delisting of Gray Wolf

MISSOULA, Mont.–The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) extended the public comment period until October 28 on two proposed rules to remove the gray wolf from the List of Threatened and Endangered species.

“It is imperative that we as conservationists, outdoorsmen and women let our government know that wolves are no longer threatened or endangered. They are clearly recovered and need to be delisted,” said David Allen, Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation president and CEO. “Wolves surpassed minimum recovery objectives more than a decade ago in the Northern Rockies, thrive in the Great Lakes, and number well into the thousands in Canada and Alaska.”

The proposals also maintain protection and expand recovery efforts for the Mexican wolf.

An FWS comprehensive review determined that the current listing for gray wolf, developed 35 years ago, erroneously included large geographical areas outside the species’ historical range. In addition, the review found that the current gray wolf listing does not reasonably represent the range of the only remaining population of wolves in the lower 48 states and Mexico that requires the protections of the Endangered Species Act – the Mexican wolf population in the Southwest.

“There are some who claim wolves remain threatened if they do not occupy their entire native range. That does not mean they are endangered. The best available scientific research shows the gray wolf is recovered well beyond the point that it needs to be delisted. There are many such species, like elk, that do not cover their historic range. That does not mean they are endangered,” added Allen.

Principles of the North American Model of Wildlife Conservation, the only one of its kind and most successful in the world, indicate that wildlife belongs to all Americans and that they need to be managed in a way that their populations will be sustained forever.

“State agencies are charged with the management of elk, deer, bears, lions and other species. We maintain that the wolf is no different,” said Allen. “It should be state agencies – not the federal government – that oversee the management of wolves.”

The proposals come after a comprehensive review confirmed the successful recovery of wolves in the western Great Lakes states and Northern Rockies following management actions undertaken by federal, state and local partners following the wolf’s listing under the Endangered Species Act more than three decades ago.

FWS also announced a series of public hearings to ensure all stakeholders have an opportunity to comment. The first public hearing is September 30 in Washington, DC followed closely by hearings in Sacramento, CA, on October 2, and Albuquerque, NM, on October 4. The Albuquerque hearing will be a combined hearing on the gray wolf delisting proposal and the proposal to revise the existing nonessential experimental population designation of the Mexican wolf.

“I encourage RMEF members, other sportsmen and women, and all those who value our wildlife and beautiful landscapes to let the federal government know where we stand,” said Allen.

New Global Climate Status Report and the End of Sea Level Rise

This from the Space and Science Research Corporation

You are invited to obtain your personal copy of the just published Global Climate Status Report (GCSR)©,Edition 3-2013, dated September 10, 2013.

The GCSR is the only quarterly, non-governmental, authoritative, comprehensive, climate status report available in the US. It is published by the Space and Science Research Corporation (SSRC), in Orlando Florida.

This global climate report is an apolitical review of the climate and is focused on the factual status of the Earth’s climate. It is also based on the use of solar activity forcing (SAF) models for its climate predictions which have been shown to be the most reliable ones available in accurately
predicting climate change, especially when compared to the very low reliability greenhouse gas models.
The GCSR has as its Editors, Mr. John L. Casey, the SSRC President, and Dr. Ole Humlum. Mr. Casey is the author of the internationally acclaimed climate book, “Cold Sun”, (See www.coldsun.net) and was recently named “America’s best climate prediction expert” * Dr. Humlum is a
distinguished geomorphologist and glaciologist from the University of Oslo, Norway.
This special 85 page edition of the GCSR is unique in its coverage of the end of global sea level rise along with the regular status on the twenty-four climate parameters monitored by the SSRC. Additionally, this edition continues with its prediction of significant global cooling for the next thirty
years in view of the end of global warming and the start of a potentially dangerous “solar hibernation.”
Of particular significance in this edition of the GCSR are the guest commentaries from two respected scientists:

1. Dr. Nils Axel Mörner – one of the world’s foremost experts on sea levels. In his commentary, Dr. Mörner, from Sweden, reviews the wide range of values and confusion that exists in sea level measurement.

2. Dr. Dong Choi – a leading geologist and Director of Research at the International Earthquake and Volcano Prediction Center. (IEVPC), Canberra, Australia. Dr. Choi’s paper discusses important new findings that establish solid links between solar activity and earthquakes.

The SSRC has also just published the companion Executive Summary of this GCSR edition that provides a big picture view of the Earth’s climate status within 25 pages.

Both reports are now available at the “Publications” page of the web site for the SSRC at: www.spaceandscience.net.

Thank You.

RMEF’s $140,000 Gift Opens Door to 18,000 Acres of Public Access

MISSOULA, Mont.–A 40-acre acquisition by the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation will improve access to nearly 18,000 acres of National Forest public lands in central Montana for hunting and other recreational enjoyment.

“This strikes at the heart of what RMEF is all about,” said David Allen, RMEF president and CEO. “We are committed to opening more land for hunting and other year-round recreational public access and now the gate is open for hunters to more easily access thousands of acres of elk country previously almost impossible to reach.”

Recently acquired by RMEF, the property contains a 30-foot common boundary with a corner piece of the Lewis and Clark National Forest (LCNF), best known as home of the Big and Little Snowy Mountains. The transaction is a cooperative effort between the RMEF, Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks, the LCNF, and willing landowners Marshall and Leslie Long.

RMEF purchased the land for $190,000 and will offer it to Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks for $50,000, in effect donating the remaining balance of $140,000 to FWP. To complete the land transfer, FWP will launch a public environmental analysis to get the land acquisition approved by the FWP Commission and the Montana Land Board.

RMEF and its partners signed an agreement that sets the stage for the FWP to provide an entrance, parking area, signage and a defined access trail into the forest. The goal is to have the improvements in place by October 26, opening day of the 2013 general big game rifle season.

“This small but critical piece of land offers both big game habitat and exceptional access to public land that supports a prized elk population,” said Gary Bertellotti, FWP Region 4 supervisor. “FWP wants to thank the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation for its efforts to secure the Red Hill property and partnering with FWP to provide access to elk and National Forest public lands for future generations.”

“This is a big win for hunters and other members of the public because there was realistically no easy way to reach this part of the Snowys. This public access will allow hunters to play a more active part with management of an elk herd that is over objective.” added Allen.

Aerial surveys conducted by FWP this past February revealed a population count of approximately 4,000 elk in the Big and Little Snowy Mountains with a calf to cow ratio of 30:100.

The transaction conserves a diverse mixture of aspen and forest, grasslands, meadows, wetlands, and a spring and intermittent stream; and provides important habitat for elk, mule deer, whitetail deer, black bear, grouse and a vast array of other wildlife.

Funding for the project came from the Torstenson Family Endowment which is used solely to further RMEF’s core mission programs of permanent land protection, habitat stewardship, elk restoration and hunting heritage.

To date, RMEF projects opened or improved access to approximately 668,000 acres of elk country across the nation.

Two Colorado State Senators Thrown Out in Recall Vote Over Gun Control

Being billed as a political ouster by voters in Colorado over stiffer gun control laws, two state senators were shown the door after a recall election showed they weren’t wanted anymore. According to a Fox News report, Sen. President John Morse and Sen. Angela Giron, lost a recall vote and will be replaced in the senate because they supported tougher gun control laws pushed by the White House and evidently not supported by the voters.

You can read the Fox News report but pay attention to the statement made by Colorado senator Angela Giron.

“We will win in the end because we are on the right side,” Giron said in her concession speech.

I have heard or read this kind of statement before but have any readers ever asked just what exactly is “the right side?” It may have no more meaning than someone attempting to save face or perhaps they actually believe they are on the “right side”, not actually knowing what that means to them other than it’s the side they come down on therefore it is “right.”

It might even be more than that when you consider that further on in the Fox News report it states:

One of the Morse recall organizers, Timothy Knight, said supporters are upset that lawmakers limited debate on the gun legislation and seemed more inclined to take cues from the White House than their constituents.(emphasis added)

If the Colorado State Legislature was taking their instructions from the Obama White House – and it would be anybody’s conspiracy as to why – then because of the recall vote, it appears, at least on the surface, that the voters didn’t think their elected officials should be kow-towing to Barack Obama.

Suppose for now that Sens. Morse and Giron were getting their marching orders from the White House, is that what Giron meant when she said she was on the “right side?” Perhaps, but how can any of us ever really know. Stating you are on the “right side” no longer has meaning that a person comes down on the side of truth. In this case, the “right side” probably more accurately describes being on the side with the most political clout for the moment.

Major Milestone for Families Afield – 1 Million New Hunters!

National Program Reduced Barriers, Created Opportunities for Newcomers

NEWTOWN, Conn. –The future of hunting is brighter today than it was nearly a decade ago thanks to the extraordinary success of Families Afield, an innovative program that has introduced 1 million newcomers to hunting.

This impressive number demonstrates that interest in hunting remains high and that what’s needed to spark a lifelong passion for hunting is a proper introduction enabled by state regulations. With success in hand, Families Afield’s call to action is this: If your state offers an apprentice hunting license, make it a point to bring a newcomer along this hunting season; or if you’ve never gone hunting before, seek out a mentor and give it a try.

Launched in 2004, Families Afield was developed to increase the number of hunters to ensure a promising future for the tradition of hunting and conservation. Hunters provide the lion’s share of support for conservation through the purchases of hunting licenses and excise taxes paid on sales of firearms and ammunition.

“I wasn’t really sure if I wanted to be a hunter, so my dad told me we can get this apprentice hunting license and we can see if you like it,” said youth apprentice hunter Seth Wasilewski in a new Families Afield video that features youth and parents who have taken advantage of the program. Seth, who took his first deer that day, went on to complete his hunter education course and continues to hunt—a progression followed by so many other mentored hunters.

Families Afield is a model of cooperative effort by several major organizations. The program was founded in 2004 by the National Shooting Sports Foundation, National Wild Turkey Federation and the U.S. Sportsmen’s Alliance. The National Rifle Association and Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation are also coalition partners in the Families Afield program.

To achieve its mission, Families Afield focused on removing barriers such as age restrictions that were preventing sportsmen and women from passing hunting on to the next generation. Families Afield also encouraged states to establish an apprentice hunting license—a “try before you buy” concept that allowed newcomers to go afield with an experienced mentor before completing a hunter education course. Cumulative sales of apprentice hunting licenses have surpassed 1 million.

Today, 35 states have approved legislation making it easier for newcomers to try hunting with an experienced mentor.

“I don’t know that sitting in a classroom for two or three days would have sparked the same interest [in my son] as getting out in the woods and getting experience deer hunting,” said Greg Wasilewski, Seth’s father and mentor.

Added parent Andrew Wecker, who mentored his daughter and son, “If you have a parent out with a child, something good is going to happen from that, and for this family hunting has been a good thing for us.”

Program organizers say adding 1 million new hunters has had a ripple effect on overall participation because having a new hunter in a family often means other family members and friends become more active hunters or are reactivated.

Nearly 200,000 apprentice licenses were sold in 2012, according to a survey of state fish and wildlife agencies commissioned by the Families Afield partners. That brings the total since 2006 to 1,006,269 apprentice hunting licenses, making Families Afield one of the most successful hunter-recruitment programs.

Most apprentices are youth, but increasingly adults have taken advantage of apprentice licenses to determine if they enjoy the activity enough to complete the hunter education course required to purchase a hunting license on their own.

The Families Afield partners will be celebrating this “1 million milestone” in the coming weeks by releasing key findings regarding the effectiveness of the program. As noted by the latest Families Afield video, “It took five years to reach 1 million new hunters, but with your help we can reach 2 million a whole lot faster.”

Experienced hunters and those who want to try hunting should check their state’s hunting regulations for information about apprentice hunting licenses. More information about Families Afield can be found at www.FamiliesAfield.org.
