When Pocket Warming is Perceived as Being Global

This morning I was reading an article in Scientific American. I have decided not to provide a link to the story, because I’m sick and tired of providing readers with links to go and read mostly utter nonsense – or as Jim Beers calls it, Romance Biology and the marriage of Romance Biology and Voodoo […]

Age and Antlers — Deer-Forest Study — Penn State University

I’ve looked at thousands of deer jaws; observed and handled hundreds of deer in 3 different states; and worked with white-tailed deer for 2 decades. Can I accurately age a deer from a photograph? Or by antler size? Absolutely not! Why? Because it’s not possible. And anyone who tells you different is pulling your leg […]

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.

Severe Winters, Warming Climate, Non-Evolving Moose – All At The Same Time

*Editor’s Note* – Don’t ever let facts get in the way of a made-up newspaper article aimed at selling copies. It is a shame that journalists are nonexistent, replaced by copy and paste robots. It is no secret that moose are not great “groomers.” Neither are deer when you compare them to a monkey! The […]

Deer Fearless, Bears Afraid, Pesticides Banned, Lyme Disease Promoted

Furthering the substantiation that the world has gone mad, I read of a town in Oregon where people are trying to figure out, “how to deal with droves of fearless deer.” Officials say, “The deer have no fear of humans” and “Deer just live there.” The same officials say that when there are too many deer sharing […]

Maine game wardens host regional conference on poaching

*Editor’s Note* – To make such a claim that the same number of deer are tagged in Maine legally as are taken illegally, requires some serious proof. First, the Maine Warden Service should define exactly what, in their professional standards, “poaching” is, and how that is used to illegally kill deer. Then, provide something more […]
