Climate Change Narrative of Convenience

There’s money in research. There’s no money in finding cures or answers. I laughed yesterday listening the fake Speaker of the House talking fake stuff about the Congressional Budget and the fake process taken by the fake Congress to lie, cheat and steal, being careful to appropriate enough money to pay off the lying, cheating […]

Another Proposed Maine Sunday Hunting Bill Defeated

According to information written and available, this was the 34th time a bill was proposed that would permit some form of Sunday hunting. This is a Dead Horse. Let’s bury it…or make some glue. Below I am going to post the written comments, that were posted on George Smith’s website, by Tom Doak, Executive Director […]

Utah: Biologist Back With Family After Accident

*Editor’s Query* – Of course I have questions. Reading the information in this article, we see where a biologist is “accidentally” injected with a tranquiler (dart) intended for a yearling cub black bear – weighing how much? And how much did the biologist who got “accidentally” injected weigh? The article doesn’t tell us the dosage […]

Selfish Environmentalists Have a Strange Way of Thanking Hunters

A photographer in Maine loves to take pictures of moose. I assume for profit, although his letter to the editor doesn’t exactly admit that. And that’s okay too. He has that right to exploit wildlife for profit – within the laws of course just as the rest of us do. And, I’ve seen some of […]

Did Man Extirpate the Caribou from Maine?

I was reading Part II of V. Paul Reynolds’ report about “Wildlife Restoration Projects.” He wrote mostly about Maine’s two attempts to restore caribou to northern Maine and seemed to suggest that with years of gained knowledge, perhaps it was time to try again. I’m not so sure about that, but….. I did want to […]

Commenting on Maine’s Moose Management Mismanagement

This morning, while I was waiting for my server to come back online, I ended up on a web page of the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife (MDIFW). The page is information about Maine’s moose – it’s history and management plans/goals. I came across some items of interest that I thought I would […]

True Effects Of Predator Control

Some people have been saying for 40 years or longer that we ought to leave the wolves and coyotes alone. That we have got to have them for the balance of nature. Funny thing is the majority of these people other than a few rural located bleeding hearts for wolves and coyotes who don’t raise […]

A Most Excellent Quote of How Statistics Prove Statistics Can Prove Anything

In a rapidly growing email exchange about effects of ungulates, particularly deer, on forests, I read the following most excellent statement contained within a larger E-mail response: “…if folks want to play with words or numbers, as I’ve often seen done in the name of “science”, one could produce almost any number desired.  For example, […]

Killing Ticks With Foods Laced With Anti-Parasitic Meds

What could possibly go wrong? I read an article this morning about how in one area of Texas, where a certain tick carries a disease known as cattle fever. The plan, on deer ranches, is to lace the corn being fed to deer, with this anti-parasitic drug. Hmmm. One small paragraph in the article states: […]
