Sensible Statement About Predators

“The issue is not wolves, it’s the combination of wolves, grizzly bears, black bears and cougars,” Bob Jamieson, a systems ecologist and environmental consultant, told the paper. “The prey species can’t handle the combined impact of those four animals,” he said. “A lot of people [blame] habitat problems because they don’t want [to] wrap their head […]

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 […]

Failure To Launch – The Brain That Is

When writing “Failure to Launch,” I’m not talking about someone’s psychological retardation and their inability, for perhaps several reasons, to leave the nest and get away from the nanny strings of mommy and daddy. No, I’m talking about a person, either mentally challenged or a deliberate liar, to promote personal agendas, who, blinded by hatred, can’t […]

Has MDIFW Lost It’s Collective Minds?

I didn’t attend this meeting of the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife (MDIFW) in Orono, Maine to discuss “big” game. However, I make reference to what Bangor Daily News reporter, John Holyoke, reported as a comment by Matt Latti of MDIFW: Mark Latti of the DIF&W hinted at things to come after a […]

The Right Hand is Blind to the Left Hand – With an Attitude to Boot

Have you often wondered why the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife (MDIFW) even exists and functions at all? I have. But let me be honest. The job is a huge one and MDIFW does many things well. Others? Not so good. I think public relations and communications needs some improvement. What do you […]

SAM-Sponsored Bill to Limit Restrictions on IFW to be Heard Tuesday

This SAM bill will be heard this Tuesday in the IF&W committee in the Cross State Office building next to the capitol. This bill will protect IF&W biologists, sportsmen and the department if the Humane Society of the United States ever qualifies another referendum ballot initiative related to wildlife management. At the hearing I will […]

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 […]
