How Accurate Are State Deer Harvest Estimates?

According to an article found at Outdoor Life: “Hunters want it [deer harvest estimate] to be important, but they also don’t believe it. They say how can you know how many deer were killed if you didn’t check my deer? And that’s true. These estimates aren’t down to the individual deer, but scientifically this is an accurate […]

Philosophical Shift in the Way the State Views Wildlife

As if it is needed, we have further proof that we are overcome by a Totalitarian Scientific Dictatorship. In an article I read recently (linked to below) it appears the author voiced some concern over the most recent resignation of wildlife Commissioner Jim Kellogg in California. With his “retirement” and previous resignation of other members […]

If We Evolved From Monkeys, Why Are Some Dumber Than a Monkey?

Everyone has a right to an opinion. With that opinion there is no guarantee that it will even be intelligent. Such is the case of a full-blown moron who writes about what he believes is the Myth of Hunting Conservation. It really doesn’t get any more stupid than the utter nonsense written. The Bangor Daily […]

Tallies from hunting show that deer, bear and turkeys are doing well in N.H. – moose, not so much

…although it may seem counterintuitive, hunting seasons are one of the best ways to determine the size and health of wild animal populations. A popular hunting season can send thousands – tens of thousands in the case of deer season – into the woods looking for specific species. Because hunters must register their kills for […]

“Big Changes” Probably Means Things Will Get Worse

I was caught by a headline today that read, “Big changes coming for Maine’s big game plans.” If that is true then logically one must ask why is there a need for changes at all saying nothing about those changes being big? The article states that deer, bear, moose and turkey will fall under management […]

Conservation requires a multifaceted approach

*Editor’s Note* – At the end of the linked-to opinion piece, the author says: “Today, the greatest threats to Vermont’s wildlife populations are habitat loss, climate change, forest fragmentation, invasive species, and the growing lack of connection to the outdoors experienced by our children.” I disagree. The biggest threat to all wildlife populations are those […]

Endangered Species Act a Golden Parachute for Inept Wildlife Management

Recently I read an editorial in an online media outlet originating in Wisconsin. The editorial was actually a rebuttal in which the author, accused the first author of taking tactics and using information that was contradictory and incorrect (if only in the mind of the author). Laughable was the fact that the person rebutting the […]

The Colonial Origins of Conservation: The Disturbing History Behind US National Parks

*Editor’s Note* – Below is a teaser and a link to an article aimed at discovering the truth about “conservation,” it’s roots, and what it has done to the world. It’s also about the evolution of Environmentalism. While many items in this article are true and based up truth, it is my opinion that the […]

Answer to Maine’s Imagined “Wildlife Management Corruption”: More Taxes

In what can only be recognized as a typical, left wing, nationalist/socialist, totalitarian response to wanting control over Maine’s wildlife management programs, one man proposes levying more taxes on the citizens in order that he can have control. The Bangor Daily News carries the opinion. The Sportsman’s Alliance of Maine, the one organization the haters […]
