Can You Handle the Truth About Wolves and Coronavirus?

An article by James Beers

I have received several questions lately about what is known about whether wolves are vectors (i.e. “carry”) the virus that causes coronavirus and if so, can they infest people, dogs, campgrounds and rural home-sites, etc. in their wide-ranging nighttime foraging in the settled landscapes of The Lower 48 States.  The answer – like so much about these Government Issue (GI) large predators like wolves and grizzlies increasingly absorbed into federal jurisdiction and protection or cougars and black bears simultaneously being given more and more State protection (and less and less management and control) – is that government and their radical environment supporters, and protectors must have told the media that you couldn’t handle the truth so it is downplayed, derided or ignored.


“They” might not get the votes in Colorado in November to voluntarily impose wolves on Rural Colorado if you knew too much.  Those Seattle voters would be less likely to browbeat the State Wildlife Agency to spread and protect wolves or to strongly oppose spreading grizzly bears over a wide swath of the rest of the State.  Idaho wouldn’t commit the millions they are considering to reduce wolves to a low level and keep them there. Montana voters will not make it a high priority to fight the continued dabbling by the courts into how, when, and where the many wolves in the State can be controlled, reduced and maintained in the State, thereby chipping away at the lie everywhere that the feds will “delist the wolves” in The Lower 48 States instead of just tying the State’s hands, forcing them to maintain growing wolf densities and pay for it all out of state wildlife funds to bankrupt the State wildlife management programs and hunting.  Great Lakes State’s rural residents, ranchers, hunters and campers might not continue their “good child” demeanor about all the lies and dissembling by federal and State politicians, bureaucrats, and environmentalists that despite endless promises and excuses for years about “delisting”, they are “still working on it and not to call them, they’ll call you”.

You will notice that any news about wolves and coronavirus could upset a lot of apple carts especially throughout the West and the Great Lakes States.  If the “natives”; especially those out of work, those quarantined in their homes, those with dogs, and all those so recently schooled about how easily and quickly the coronavirus is spread; heard that wolves carry the virus and spread it in their far and wide wanderings in, around and through human areas: why, they might get pretty restless.

Here is what seems to be the case.

1.    A recent “study” of wolves in Yellowstone Park reported, “We know that nearly all wolves in Yellowstone become infected with canine parvovirus, canine adenovirus-1, and canine herpesvirus at some point in their lives. We have also detected canine coronavirus-1, canine adenovirus-2, and Bordetella bronteseptica; but currently we have no estimate of how common these infections are or their impacts (although they can cause severe illness in domestic dogs).”  Obtaining a copy of this study was difficult and I have not seen any reporting of it.  Long story short, the -1 is not differentiated from the current -19 you see and hear about daily.  This indicates the strong possibility that if wolves carry it; other canines (coyotes, dingos, dogs, jackals) very likely carry it.

2.    There is no literature that I can find on the biology of wild canines carrying or transmitting the coranovirus to humans.  Paradoxically, there is an endless string of “studies” on protecting the only canine we sleep with and treat like “a member of the family” the pet dog.  They mostly assure us that Fido is not in danger of getting coronavirus in our home if we take precautions around the dog like not coughing on them and making frequent $$ veterinarian visits.  But…

3.    An article in LIVESCIENCE reports, “A pet dog that contracted a “low-level” COVID-19 infection from its owner has now died, according to news reports. The owner has not allowed the dog to be autopsied, so the exact cause of death remains unknown.”   “ The dog’s owner, a 60-year-old woman, first tested positive for COVID-19 on Feb. 25 and was hospitalized at the time, according to the news report. She returned home on March 8 after recovering from the illness. The genetic makeup of the virus found in people and the virus found in the woman’s Pomeranian appeared similar, the AFCD reported. “The [gene] sequence results indicate that the virus likely spread from the infected persons and subsequently infected the dog,” they noted in a statement.”

So this what I have found out.  The US government and media do not want to recognize any coronavirus danger to humans from wolves, coyotes, or dogs.  Addressing the “worry” about humans infecting some poor “fixed” “rescue” dog is another matter.

If a Pomeranian, died from being infected by an infected human, then it is pretty likely a wolf or coyote could be infected as well but it also means the reverse: that a canine (wolf, coyote or dog) could infect a human through just as many possibilities (sneezing, coughing, leaving saliva, etc.) on things in yards or on things other animals mouth or lick and then bring into the house or leave it when they lick furniture or children or cuts on adult’s hands, etc.

I can hear it already, “what does Beers’ know?” and “there are no studies or data supporting this, it is all fiction!”  All I know, like Will Rogers, is what I read in the paper plus in this instance what I don’t read in all the non-existent “studies” by those bureaucrats running this runaway train.

Allow me to observe, that you and I clearly “can’t stand the truth” otherwise we would be told the truth even though it would disrupt all these government schemes to vacate rural America and eliminate everything from hunting and trapping to logging, grazing and gun possession. LOL!

So wolves, coyotes and dogs can carry the coronavirus and they sneeze, cough and leave saliva.  Thus they can and you can bet they are doing their bit; as perhaps the widest-ranging large animal out there, the wolf, is doing more than their fair share in rural America as you read this.  Not to worry though, like “delisting the wolf”, “we have some more work to do and when we get it done, don’t call us, we’ll call you.”

Making Stuff Up, Shifts the Wildlife Management Paradigm

The Tavistock Institute of Human Relations (TIHR), formerly known as the Wellington House, is, to put it bluntly so all can understand, a brainwashing institution whose sole purpose is: “…to shape the moral, spiritual, cultural, political and economic decline of the United States of America.” I’m quite certain the majority of readers do not want to believe this and that’s alright. It doesn’t really matter one way or the other what you think about all this. TIHR does believe this and they are going about their business while we dither blindly.

A few years back, I wrote a piece all about the Wellington House, now the Tavistock Institute of Human Relations. If interested in learning some of how and why the world has gotten to the point that everything is upside-down and makes little sense, click on the link above and have a good read. I will make a note at this juncture that most all of the information that I wrote about back then is factually true. Some aspects of the piece, I have since gained much knowledge about and would change. However, the concept and the lists of organizations that are readily contributing to the altering of the way you think (or lack thereof) and act, are accurate.

Carl Pope, a former executive director of the Sierra Club, once said, “…environmentalism is part of a broader progressive movement.” The Broader Progressive Movement has many agendas, one of which, goes along with the Tavistock’s stated mission: “…to shape the moral, spiritual, cultural, political and economic decline of the United States of America.” It is no real secret that this movement intends to “gain new understanding and knowledge” (a stated goal of the Left’s Second Nature and the Aspen Institute) and to “shift the paradigm” as to how wildlife management is discussed and perceived. If you don’t understand what all of this means, it’s easy. They intend to “gain new understanding and knowledge,” i.e. make stuff up, and “shift the paradigm,” or force the lies down all of our throats.

To accomplish this, enough people must be duped into believing what they are being told. I often refer to these followers as useful idiots and/or “True Believers.” This task becomes easier the more dumbed down a society becomes; those incapable of independent and critical thinking.

Eric Hoffer, author of “The True Believer: Thoughts on the Nature of Mass Movements,” writes: “All mass movements generate in their adherents a readiness to die and a proclivity for united action; all of them, irrespective of the doctrine they preach, and the program they project, breed fanaticism, enthusiasm, fervent hope, hatred and intolerance; all of them are capable of releasing a powerful flow of activity in certain departments of life; all of them demand blind faith and single hearted allegiance.

“All movements however different in doctrine and aspiration, draw their early adherence from the same types of humanity; they all appeal to the same types of minds. At first they come gently. With power they speak and act boldly.”

A close examination of exactly what Hoffer is describing is enough to blow the minds of the sane and rational, i.e. those with a brain left to think and to see.

If Environmentalism, which goes hand in hand with Animal Rights, is only a part of a broader promotion of the Progressive Movement, then it is only logical to conclude that things like wolf introduction, predator protection, balance of nature, Climate Change, and wildlife management in general are part of that movement in which “new understanding and knowledge” (lies) and a “paradigm shift” (forcing it down our throats) are all a part of the bigger movement.

Why is it necessary to make stuff up and then force everyone to see things differently? Does “truth” then become nothing more than one’s ideological narrative, because that, they have been convinced, is the “new knowledge and understanding?”

This illness is prevalent in everything…I mean EVERYTHING. Climate Change, as sold to the masses of True Believers, is an unprovable theory, and yet those claiming to be scientists, and have paid for a college degree that gives them the right to say so, practice their profession based on an unprovable theory.

Decades have been spent fine tuning the North American Model of Wildlife Management, and the Broader Progressive Movement is intent on destroying it; or in their own words, to promote their “new knowledge and understanding,” regardless of whether it is fact or fiction, and then force all others to accept their new religion.

State fish and wildlife departments are now 100% rife with Environmentalism. Most of what they do, to the few of us remaining, makes no sense as they muddle through confounded acts of what they believe to be science/biology that are strangled by Climate Change.

These departments are controlled by the non scientific strings of Environmentalism now disguised as “social demands.”

I could spend the day giving example after example of how, through the deliberate act of “to shape the moral, spiritual, cultural, political and economic decline of the United States of America,” Environmentalism, a broader progressive movement, but if you can’t see it and won’t see it, then you are, more than likely, a blind True Believer: one who has at first, “come gently” but now, “speak and act boldly.”

As part of this movement, you have been brainwashed. It began a long time ago, and you cannot see it. That’s all part of the program. I wonder if you are “ready to die” with “a proclivity for united action?”

This is a real pandemic…eventually it will get us all.

Wyoming: Wolf Free Zone and Game Populations Disappearing

Below are some interesting charts, graphs, and data about wolves and the effects they are having on Wyoming’s big game populations of moose, elk, and deer. The data comes from the Wyoming Game and Fish.

Somehow, throughout the criminal activities of Government and rogue non governmental groups to illegally force gray wolves onto the landscape of the Northern Rocky Mountains and the Greater Yellowstone Region, Wyoming was able, through legal channels, to designate the majority of the geographic region of the state as “Wolf Free.” This designation means that in these zones wolves can essentially be killed at any time by any means and without a license.

The data that is compiled comes from those areas where controlling of wolves as a predator, is strictly regulated by state and federal governments. These zones where wolves are protected, at least to some degree, regardless of the lies being perpetuated by government agencies, non government agencies, and the media, are experiencing devastating losses to moose, elk, and deer. The insanity persists that people be forced to live in scarcity to protect a large predator that has no good purpose in people-settled lanscapes.

The lies within the rigged Beast System continue…unchecked.

Deer, wolves, and people: costs, benefits and challenges of living together

ABSTRACT

Human?driven species annihilations loom as a major crisis. However the recovery of deer and wolf populations in many parts of the northern hemisphere has resulted in conflicts and controversies rather than in relief. Both species interact in complex ways with their environment, each other, and humans. We review these interactions in the context of the ecological and human costs and benefits associated with these species. We integrate scattered information to widen our perspective on the nature and perception of these costs and benefits and how they link to each other and ongoing controversies regarding how we manage deer and wolf populations. After revisiting the ecological roles deer and wolves play in contemporary ecosystems, we explore how they interact, directly and indirectly, with human groups including farmers, foresters, shepherds, and hunters. Interactions with deer and wolves generate various axes of tension, posing both ecological and sociological challenges. Resolving these tensions and conflicts requires that we address key questions using integrative approaches: what are the ecological consequences of deer and wolf recovery? How do they influence each other? What are the social and socio?ecological consequences of large deer populations and wolf presence? Finally, what key obstacles must be overcome to allow deer, wolves and people to coexist? Reviewing contemporary ecological and sociological results suggests insights and ways to improve our understanding and resolve long?standing challenges to coexistence. We should begin by agreeing to enhance aggregate benefits while minimizing the collective costs we incur by interacting with deer and wolves. We should also view these species, and ourselves, as parts of integrated ecosystems subject to long?term dynamics. If co?existence is our goal, we need deer and wolves to persevere in ways that are compatible with human interests. Our human interests, however, should be inclusive and fairly value all the costs and benefits deer and wolves entail including their intrinsic value. Shifts in human attitudes and cultural learning that are already occurring will reshape our ecological interactions with deer and wolves.

Another Half-Million Dollar Wolf Scam

A few years ago I pulled the plug on wasting my time trying to fight a rigged corrupt government system that grows and perpetuates wolves across the landscape of America – a practice that runs contrary to anything that once resembled normalcy and sanity.

At the time I made my announcement, I did hint that I might, from time to time, shine the light on the continued fleecing of hunters and trappers, and tax payers in general, when it comes to gray, red, Mexican, and any other mixed breeds of hybrid, wild canine designed and released into the backyards of Americans in the Northern Rockies, the Southwest, Southeast, and Western Great Lakes regions to perpetuate scarcity.

I more or less keep up with what’s going on. I swallow back my regurgitation when I hear the word wolf, shake my head and head in the other direction. However, I’ll be the first to admit it when I can boldly and proudly write: I told you so.

The other day I was alerted that the Idaho Department of Fish and Game (IDFG) was asking taxpayers to fork over more than $400,000 a year to count wolves in their state. Please go back a read that again.

You see it wasn’t enough that the state of Idaho, in gutless, silent acquiescence, allowed activists, mostly rogue quasi members of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS), to spread wolves throughout their state, they went so far as to arrange things so that the wolves would continue to proliferate only instead of the Federal Government criminals footing the bill, the state of Idaho had to cough up the money to perpetuate wolves and destroy their prized game herds, i.e. elk, deer, and moose. These sportsmen claimed a victory. How so? How are those elk tags going for you? When’s the last time anyone hunted moose?

I’ll get to the “I told you so.” During the process of watching the wolves grow to numbers ginormously exceeding the target number of “recovered” wolves (10 breeding pairs and 100 wolves), the state, with the help of a handful of criminal politicians (aren’t they all?) got the Feds to turn management of wolves over to the state. This, of course, came when wolves in Idaho numbered probably somewhere around 1,000 – who knows for sure? Management involved finding ways to bilk the sportsmen of dollars to fund management, while at the same time their game herds began to nose dive due to wolves slaughtering the choicest of the elk, deer, and moose.

Never fear, the state offered a solution – a “trophy” wolf hunt.

About this time, I railed on the IDFG, laughing in their face at their ignorance that a “trophy” wolf hunt was going to have any effect whatsoever on controlling wolf numbers. I said back then it wouldn’t have any effect and that in about 5-8 years the state would be trying to figure out how they were going to control wolves. They still haven’t figured it out and never will, I’m afraid.

I began writing a multi-part series on the historic challenges that faced countries, cultures, and tribes across the world in their attempts to rid their landscapes of undesired wolves. I later took the time and pieced the multi-part writings into one piece. I called it, “To Catch a Wolf.”

In October of 2014, and again in February of 2017, I published an article about trophy wolf hunts, addressing specifically the claim by ignorant wildlife managers and activists, that offering trophy wolf hunts was somehow going to cause elk, deer, and moose populations to plummet. No, you can’t make this stuff up.

If you are interested in facts about wolves and some of what has transpired that has gotten Idaho to the point they are at now – dwindling game herds and anywhere from 1,000 to 1,500 wolves and god knows how many breeding pairs – please take the time to read the links I’ve provided above.

In the meantime, it appears that citizens of Idaho are about to get shafted once again. They are being asked to supply the inept fish and game department $408,000 a year so they can count wolves. What for?

Mind you, we just learned that the same IDFG used $120,000 to kill elk that the department say are destroying ranchers’ crops. Not only is this fascist regime not giving hunters an opportunity to reduce elk populations in regions the state claims need it, but they are charging the sportsmen so the department can do it themselves or pay others to do it, while donating the meat to food banks. How big of them!

There’s a couple of sayings that come to mind here. One of them goes something like “Burn me once, shame on you. Burn my twice, shame on me.” But then again, perhaps we are well beyond burning twice. I think we’ve reached the point where insanity has crept in and taken over.

I was livid when sportsmen, wolf control activists, IDFG, and politicians agreed to take over management and charge the taxpayers and sportsmen for that privilege. Thanks a lot! More money and more wolves. That worked out real well.

If I was an Idaho citizen, I would place a big fat demand on any notion of providing nearly a half-million dollars to IDFG to count wolves. Here’s the demand.

Presently, depending on which lie you want to believe, there are from 1,000 to 1,500 wolves in Idaho. I don’t know how many breeding pairs. I don’t care how many breeding pairs. There are plain and simple too damned many wolves….period!

When the criminals illegally dumped the wolves on Idaho, they were promised that when there were 10 breeding pairs or 100 wolves, the species would be considered recovered and the state could take over managing wolves so long as they met that requirement. How did that work out for the victims? I thought so.

If the IDFG wants $408,000 to count wolves, give them the money with the understanding that by counting them and knowing where all the wolves are, they can then systematically kill enough wolves, geographically laid out to maintain a certain density and lower the total wolf population back down to 10 breeding pairs and 100 wolves. Anything short of that, IDFG can go pound sand.

Coronavirus, Locusts: The Image of the Beast?

We are programmed to simply accept explanations given to us by the controlling factions of the Global Power Structure. To question or expose, one is immediately labeled as recusant, conspiracy theorists – a trademark devised by the U.S.’s CIA. The CIA even has its own webpage where they freely exercise the practice of annulling “conspiracy theories.”

The latest of the so-called health crises involve a man-made, patented virus called Coronavirus. Another is a report out of Africa of record-breaking swarms of locusts.

Bill Gates warned everyone last year that there would be a viral pandemic. How would he, or anyone else, know that unless they was involved in the manufacture and spread of Coronavirus?

Perhaps it is pointless to attempt to point fingers and make accusations against people and agencies to the complicit, acquiescent automatons of our robotic society. However, to most, it doesn’t matter, but to some, there are “red flags” that should alert us that the Beast (the Global Power Structure, the System, the Mystery Whore of Babylon, is at work).

Let’s look at two reports. The first is a report this morning about warnings and demands being made about the Coronavirus. I realize that most aren’t interested in what the Beast is doing, but maybe they need to pay attention. Aren’t the delusional factions of the Beast System telling us what we might expect into our future?

The AP is reporting this morning that calls are going out to “ban wildlife trade.” They want to tell us that “wildlife trade” involves those that market “unregulated” wild animals as food – key word being unregulated.

Mind you that, whether you want to accept the fact or not, officials (delusional participants within the Beast System) are blaming the coronavirus on food markets in Wuhan Province in China. If you will recall, the SARS virus of about 17 years ago, magically originated in the same area of China. And, magically, the only laboratory in China capable of “handling” deadly viruses (think biological warfare) is in Wuhan Province.

But what is the AP telling us about the fallout from Coronavirus? First, that China has placed a “temporary ban on the trade of wild animals.” Mind you, the same media (of the Beast System) reports they have no idea where the virus came from, yet they insist on a ban and pointing fingers at the cause being eating animals and called for “a ban on eating wild animal meat.” There’s more.

The AP also reports (is this really related to the spread of Coronavirus?) that, “Demand for wild animals in Asia, especially China, is hastening the extinction of many species…” Pay attention because that claim is important as it substantiates the call world wide for people to stop killing all animals (a worldwide food source). According to the delusional “bugs” that feverishly work at the promotion of the Global Beast Structure, animals have at least equal, if not greater, rights than man.

“They advocate vastly increasing on-site inspections and government oversight of all wildlife markets.” Governments, and their associated Beast Factions, are the ones responsible for these deadly viruses and the spread of them, and yet, we are supposed to be subjected to (silent acquiescence) more of their regulation. That way they have better and easier means of killing all that they deem necessary.

Here in the good ole U.S. of A, the Wildlife CONservation Society has offered their opinions. The executive director says, and pay very close attention, if “human consumption of illegal and unregulated wildlife persists, then the public will continue to face heightened risks from emerging new viruses, potentially more lethal and the source of future pandemic spread,” he said. “These are perfect laboratories for creating opportunities for these viruses to emerge.”

I’m taking this as a warning that the Beast System intends the release of “more lethal” viruses. Mind you, these are the same Beast System organizations that some of us, myself included, have attempted to educate about the spread of deadly diseases carried in the wild by canine species, particularly wolves and coyotes. And yet they insist this is not true and work feverishly (sorry) at protecting these nasty, disease ridden animals that serve very little of worth in human-settled landscapes.

Guess what else is located in Wuhan Province? “Shennongjia, a UNESCO World Heritage nature reserve that is a habitat of great biodiversity with many rare species including the clouded leopard, golden snub-nosed monkey and the Chinese giant salamander.”

To tell you about the Beast System UNESCO would require another book. If you have read the report, you would realize that these are the same delusional “bugs” who claim that too many species crammed into too small an area, is the laboratory for breeding deadly viruses and spreading them. And yet, they protect and preserve “great biodiversity” which becomes a convenient breeding ground.

The Beast System is in control and we are their victims – believe it or not. It doesn’t matter whether you want to believe it, they do and they are out to kill us.

Let’s shift to another report I read this morning about locusts in Africa. I’ll admit that what caught my attention in this article is its relationship to Bible Prophecy as well as a deeper understanding of when the “locusts” will be released from the Bottomless Pit in the End of Days.

The report appears benign enough unless you are capable of not accepting all things as truth. For instance. The report tells us this “outbreak” of “desert locusts” is the worse in “70 years” – not since forever but merely a short 70 years.

Here’s another warning: “When rains arrive in March and bring new vegetation across much of the region, the numbers of the fast-breeding locusts could grow 500 times…” How do they know this?

The UN Food and Agricultural Organization says, “WE MUST ACT IMMEDIATELY.” (emphasis added) Act to do what? Spray insecticides of course. “About $70 million is needed to step up aerial pesticide spraying…”, and all that money goes directly to killing people spraying for locusts? (The War on Locusts)

Hang on. It gets better. It seems the UN wants $70 million to spray but, “That won’t be easy, especially in Somalia, where parts of the country are in the grip of the al-Qaida-linked al-Shabab extremist group.” This is the same “al-Qaida” that the U.S. Government Beast System trained and deployed and continues to perpetuate.

The plans for starvation are apparent: “Even a small swarm of the insects can consume enough food for 35,000 people in a single day…” (imagine how much FOOD will disappear when there are 500 times the locusts) and, “This may threaten the shaky food security in the region.”

Is this a planned event like the Coronavirus, SARS, Zika, Ebola, Influenza, etc.?

And no such “we are all gonna die” report would be complete until we included, “A changing climate has contributed to “exceptional” breeding conditions…” Or maybe because the Beast System has learned how to control the weather, this “exceptional breeding conditions” is man-made.

The system we are trapped in is a rigged system. It is the Beast System that rules the world. Their goal is the death of millions; it has been for decades. If you choose not to accept that, that is your business. At least try to pay attention and you can find out when the Beast will attack next – or maybe its more comfortable for you to live in denial or with blindfolds on. These attacks are happening at rapid pace. You might not be able to keep up.

The next time you hear one of the leaders of the Beast System, like a Bill Gates, telling you that if we don’t do something (wink-wink like Climate Change) bigger and badder viruses are going to kill millions, maybe billions, you better pay attention because he knows.

China Market Where Coronavirus Originated Serves Up Rats and Live Wolf Puppies

Governments (Global Power Structure) historically create and spread diseases and viruses, most meant to kill people and control their behavior. This latest virus, Coronavirus, that is said to have originated in the province of Wuhan, China, appears to have specifically sprouted from a “food” market where such things as “…live foxes, crocodiles, wolf puppies, giant salamanders, snakes, rats, peacocks, porcupines, camel meat and other game — 112 items in all.”

I’ll leave it up to readers to decide whether this, or any other virus, is the product of planned attacks by “government” agencies. Regardless, it appears we must deal with the virus and all associated fallout from it.

According to one source, the coronavirus, 2019-nCoV, all began from snakes; which would make sense being that all viruses originate from Satan, who was cursed to forever crawl on his belly as a serpent.

And the fallout? Yahoo News reports, conveniently, that “…authorities believe the virus likely came from “wild animals at the seafood market””. But note also that they include in their headline that the source of the virus come from a place that sells/butchers? “live wolf puppies.” If that wasn’t intended to play on the emotions of existing mentally ill, perverse people and their love affairs with wolves, and wildlife in general, I don’t know what would be.

The report says nothing other than live wolf puppies can be found there. We don’t know if they are sold as pets (in China I doubt it) or butchered and eaten – a common practice in several other societies.

What a skillful attack on normalcy. On the one hand, some, myself included, could easily say, I told you so. I told you of the 35-50 diseases and viruses that wolves (canines) can carry, some of them deadly to man. All animals are loaded with disease and viruses. Why do you think we are always being told to “properly” cook all meat?

But on the other hand, what a great opportunity to further attack the long heritage of nations and peoples all across the globe who hunt wildlife to consume and for simple sustenance. The blatant attempt here is to put the fear of god into people who hunt and consume the meat they kill in order to stop the practice of hunting/trapping. With this will come shortage of food and the end result being more deaths (eugenics) to the people.

Our only hope might be that those who cause the spread of the viruses (not the victims) are cursed with their own concoctions.

Buy Em Guns, Send Them to Hunt, and Then What?

I was reading Bob Humphrey’s recent article about making this year “The Year of the Hunter.” As I have come to expect, Bob Humphrey, one of Maine’s better outdoor writers, is always full of words that are constructive and positive, something perhaps I should take a lesson in. However, I am too strong a realist to be drawn so far away that I would find myself showing up to a birthday party that has no balloons, ice cream, and a cake.

Mr. Humphrey laments of the continuing decline in hunter participation. We tend to superficially putter along with suggestions of how to increase hunter participation, with perhaps not putting enough focus on the balloons and the birthday cake.

All of the writer’s suggestions make a lot of sense: recruitment, mentorship, apprenticeship licenses, involvement in “R3 Program” (recruit, retain, reactivate), controlling social media, improved landowner relationships, joining deer conservation and advocacy groups, and basically speaking out about the positive aspects of hunting.

While Humphrey sort of casually mentions, “Since 1988, the Quality Deer Management Association has promoted “sustainable, high-quality deer populations, wildlife habitats and ethical hunting experiences through research, education, advocacy and hunter recruitment.”

There are many groups of all variety of make-up that “promote sustainable, high-quality deer populations,” but what does promote mean? Are these groups forming because state-funded government fish and game departments are incapable of sustaining high-quality deer populations? Don’t we need our fish and game departments to go beyond marketing a not-so-good product…with a straight face no doubt? Fish and game departments should be the leaders not the followers of advocacy groups.

All dressed up for the party, with invitation in hand, and all the supporting propaganda telling me what a great party this is going to be, arriving at the party and finding no cake and ice cream means I won’t be hanging around for long, and will become gun shy (sorry) to return again.

All states’ deer hunting problems are different. All states are suffering some degree of hunter loss. With a dwindling population of hunters (I would bet with continued hunter loss those retaining an interest are more serious about what they do and thus will seek out those places where they have the best chance a bagging a “trophy.”), competition becomes real and it is a no-brainer that if the party has no cake and ice cream, the interest will continue to decline and Maine is removed from consideration as a destination hunting ground and interest within the state continues to shrink.

Yes, there are other problems too that contribute to the lack of interest, but an unsustainable, poor-quality deer population makes all other “recruitment, retentions, reactivation” efforts a bit of a futile effort.

People in Maine are a bit dishonestly led to believe that the deer population is “healthy” and that while numbers may not be at peak levels, there are plenty of deer to go around. It is when we honestly examine where the deer are concentrated we realize the majority of geographic and huntable areas, have deer densities that make it, let’s say, a poor product that is very difficult to promote “retention, recruitment, and reactivation.”

Back in October, I commented on the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife’s (MDIFW) efforts at promoting “R3” by recruiting some greenhorns and sticking them in a ground blind in the middle of a game preserve. Oddly enough, from a state that is not exactly all in with “canned hunting” they use canned hunting in an attempt to recruit new hunters. The question I asked is why didn’t the MDIFW put them in places where the rest of us are forced to hunt? The answer is simple. Sitting in a blind for hours on end seeing nothing, is like going to a birthday party with no cake and ice cream. Are you getting my point here?

Not that we should give up all the efforts that Mr. Humphrey and others have suggested to recruit more hunters, but retention and reactivation is going to be a very big task to accomplish unless those huntable regions of Maine grow more deer.

So, the big and obvious question is how do we grow more deer in Maine’s huntable and deerless regions? Let’s first begin with what we shouldn’t do. We shouldn’t use terrible excuses, like Climate Change and claiming there’s just as many deer now as there used to be – there may be but they aren’t where they can be hunted. If a warming climate, the most favorite of all excuses, was real, then Maine deer regions to the north would be seeing deer growth as the winters become less severe and the forests change. The news is they are not.

We need to work even harder with landowners, even the big ones, to protect deer wintering areas. But large predators growing at unchecked rates is a real problem. While some efforts have been undertaken to reduce coyote/wolf populations, more effort needs to be done. We eat deer. We don’t eat coyotes…at least not yet.

At the same time, serious efforts need to be taken to cut the black bear population down to “healthy” levels – healthy for the bears and healthy for deer. Bears are killing fawns soon after the fawning season, seriously cutting into fawn recruitment, making sustainable deer populations impossible.

The Maine Legislature needs to stop dawdling and caving to special interest groups, like guides and outfitters, and do what is best for all game populations, not necessarily bank accounts.

Consider what has changed since deer populations in many parts of the state have dwindled. In those same regions, black bear populations are growing out of control, coyote/wolf numbers are at all time highs, and moose numbers remain strong. Why is it that all that can be seen is finding fault with the Climate?

I don’t know of any hunters who seriously want to see the Big Woods of northern Maine teeming with deer. However, an increase from 1-3 deer per square mile, to 2-5 deer per square mile or even 3-6 might make a huge difference in accomplishing the 3 “Rs.”

If Maine is going to push this recruitment, retention, and reactivation thing, let’s lay the groundwork first to make sure we got the cake and ice cream. It sure would make all that work a lot easier. Who knows, if Maine had a terrific deer product to market…if you build it they will come?

Mountain Lion Attacks

If for no other reason than the truth that this post-normal society worships animals more than they give a shit about their fellow man, we should expect, with increased predator protection and perverse animal worship, that more and more people with be attacked and killed by hungry predators…doing what predators do?

Here’s one such story.

Another Wolf Advocates Falsehood

This falsehood is not verifiable by anyone foolish enough to believe it. It is simply what people want to believe. Nothing more. It is beneficial for the agencies promoting this falsehood because they want to sell elk tags. Not only that, they including their pseudo environmental friends all UNEP clones want to cover up the real damage they did to the renewable resource we used to enjoy when these elk population numbers were the reality every year for many years before the wolf was brought back and mismanaged.

The massive reduction in elk hunting opportunity’s as can be verified via the previous of wolves hunting elk regulations data versus the current hunting elk regulations data.

“In 1995, the elk population in Wyoming was 103,448, the wapiti population in Montana was 109,500, and the number of elk in Idaho was 112,333. Recently, the elk population in Wyoming was 104,800, the population in Montana 138,470 and total elk in Idaho was 116,800. In each of those states, hunter harvests are high.”—Those States lying game departments

Belief is the idiom enemy of knowing. So let’s define what believe is, believe; it’s a transistor it is to lend credit upon the authority or testimony of another; to be persuaded. Persuaded means to be deceived of the truth of something upon the declaration of another or upon evidence furnished by reasons arguments and deductions of the mind or by any other circumstance other than personal knowledge. practical experience.. Belief is the enemy of knowing..

Belief v Knowledge
The unbridgeable divide between believe and know … the believers — simply would not consider or accept that believe and know are not synonymous, that there is a chasm between the two words …
Believe, although having some slim foundation in evidence, signifies something unprovable (or perhaps less provable), and thus less firmly based in evidence, than know, whose foundation is firmly based on the provable and demonstrable.

The wolf advocate who posts this false information along with various other aspects of falsehoods connected to their advocacy can believe this State Agency crap because they want to believe it. The truth is they don’t really know if those population numbers are the reality of elk in those States, or if there in fact is another reality about elk populations in those States..

But then we all know the old saying about a sucker being born every minute, which originated in the 1800s.. Well I’d say that has increased since that era to a sucker being born every second..

I live in Central Idaho.. I’ve witnessed the last 25 years of the wolf programme of Action in full living color.. Wolf Advocates are only bullshitting themselves..

Of course another myth these true believers are suckered by apparently is that public office holders in the game departments of the states and even the federal people such as the BLM, USFWS and USFS all live by a higher moral standard than the rest of this society thus cannot tell a lie, would not fabricate falsehoods for agency agenda that coincides with the UNEP Programme of REWILDING Action.. Which the UNEP tome that is being implemented itself in it’s entirety since 1995 to allegedly save the earth is also a lie..

Perhaps a sucker is born every half second…
