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 […]

Bear Chasing Two Moose

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 […]

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 […]

Cut hunting permits 24 percent so public sees more Maine moose, plan urges

*Editor’s Note* – I can hear the nonsensical comments from the environmentalist-trained game managers that they must manage wildlife according to social demands. I think in the circles I grew up in and the research that I conduct on a daily basis, the effect is called communism. It was the Roman writer Marcus Tullius Cicero who […]

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. Perhaps if we spend enough money (I doubt it seriously) in order that these “managers” […]
