New Brunswick and Maine Share Deer/Forest Study

It sounds to me like these “biolojests” need to get out a little bit. “They collared ten deer from each provider.  During this pilot they’ve received interesting and sometimes surprising results.  Kennedy told us that two mature (7.5 year old) does were killed by coyotes this year already, even before the first snowfall!  We all […]

Is It Possible MDIFW Will Actually Do Something About Reducing Bear Population?

This just might be so! According to George Smith, the group that is working on devising game management plans for bear, deer, moose and turkeys, voted, in a split vote, to consider implementation of a Spring bear hunt. As the old Maine saying goes, “Hahd tellin not knowin,” the Smith article mentions no other options […]

The Maybe, I Think, Could be, Possibly, Might be, I Hope Method of Wildlife Scientism

A bald eagle, a loon and a spotted owl walked into a bar….. That story might be just as good as the vast majority of nonsensical, Scientism reports we read about in our “Fake News” Mainstream Media – the information readily supplied these echo chambers by fish and game departments, environmentalists, animal rights perverts, as […]

An Open Letter To President Donald Trump

*Editor’s Note* – The views expressed in the accompanied “Open Letter” may not totally express the opinions of this editor. Thank you. Dear President Trump;   There are millions of us in this country who truly hope that you were sincere and honest about appointing a commission to investigate Hillary and Bill Clinton, and to […]

Biggest Coyote/Deer Study Ongoing

*Editor’s Note* – In the teaser I placed just below, the author of the article about the relationship between coyotes in the East and deer, says, “Shooting the occasional coyote really makes no difference in what happens to the deer herd.” In the context of the article the “occasional” coyote is described as a “transient” coyote, […]

USFWS in Very Hot Water Over False ESA Protections of Hybrid Red Wolves

Click to enlarge photograph if necessary. Finally, what appears to be some action on this biological catastrophe and a complete bastardization of the Endangered Species Act (ESA). Some of us have known for a long time that the wild, mongrel dog that the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) perpetuated and placed in portions of […]

Can non-native wolves receive protections reserved for native species in Oregon?

“Later this year the Oregon Court of Appeals will consider whether it was lawful for the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife and the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission to remove the gray wolf from the state’s endangered species list in late 2015. Disagreeing with the wolf’s delisting, three environmentalist groups challenged it last year. PLF […]

In Maine, Too Many Game Animals or Not Enough Game Animals? And None of It Matters

And the beat goes on! Drums keep pounding rhythm to my brain! Ah, yes! The committee in Maine is at work attempting to put onto paper all the management plans for deer, moose, bear and turkey. Members on the committee seem to be saying there are too many of certain kinds of game animals, while […]

Are We Making a Big Mistake Protecting All These Animal Species?

I grew up in the woods of Maine. It seemed everyday I was in the woods and at least adjacent to them. I rarely saw the wild animals that everyone is seeing today. Is this a good or bad thing? I never saw a black bear in the wild until I was an adult. Now […]

Mass Creation of Red Wolf Automatons

This morning Jim Beers shared some of his thoughts in a brief email exchange. I’ll attempt to further encapsulate his pithy thoughts. Beers was referencing an article that attempted to address the difficulties wildlife managers in Canada are having with creating a “delicate balancing act” between protecting the gray wolf and saving a rapidly dwindling woodland […]
