Wyoming Game and Fish seeks public input

Protect yellowstone wolves, protect the wolves

Yellowstone and Teton Wolves need proposed “Sacred Resource Protection Zone”

Wyoming needs to hear We are tired of them managing our Federal Resources under the influence of Hunters and Ranchers before there are no Wildlife left for Our Children to enjoy. They need to once again hear about Our Proposed “Sacred Resource Protection Zone”. We will be personally calling Director Talbott and again requesting a Meeting with the Tribal Groups that we assembled for his canceled meeting.

Wyoming has proven time and time again not being fit to manage the Public’s Resources. From backing out of meetings to getting caught selling “Outlawed” poisons, to disrespecting Native American Religious Rights by calling our Sacred Species “Vermin”.

Wyoming needs to Hear from Us !!

CHEYENNE—The Wyoming Game and Fish Department is seeking public input as it embarks on a major project to chart a path for the future of Wyoming’s wildlife.

People can offer comments on wildlife and the Game and Fish Department as part of a major research study to develop a new agency-wide strategic plan.

Public input will help shape the first-of-its-kind strategic plan that the Game and Fish plans to use for years to come, according to a press release.

“This is your chance to drive the future of Wyoming’s wildlife,” said Scott Talbott, director of the Wyoming Game and Fish Department. “An opportunity like this does not come around very often and we hope you will take advantage of it and give us your thoughts on the future of wildlife, hunting, fishing and our agency.”

Comments and suggestions can be submitted in an online forum today and start commenting on important issues to you. The forum is accessible at wgfd.wyo.gov under the ‘get involved’ tab. Visitors will be able to post comments on the website until June, 2018.

In February there will be a series of in-person events where the public can comment. There will also be a telephone survey of residents and nonresidents.

Game and Fish will build the strategic plan between March and June of 2018. The agency has partnered with Responsive Management, a survey research firm specializing in capturing and analyzing public opinions toward natural resources and outdoor recreation, and The Cooperation Company, a firm specializing in strategic and operational planning, for this project.

“Our mission is to conserve wildlife and to serve the public. We believe this project will help us do both even better,” Talbott said.

As the agency leading wildlife management in Wyoming, the Game and Fish manages more than 800 species of fish and wildlife across Wyoming.

And Hunters wonder why the Yellowstone Elk herds are disappearing? DUH

Look People, it truly isnt Rocket Science, when you slaughter the Cows, there is nothing left for breeding. This Cow was killed just outside of Yellowstone National Park. Wyoming Fish and Game need to pull their Heads out and stop hunting Period. This is but 1 of the many Prime Examples of why Wyoming has no Business managing Wildlife Period. The Way they manage our Public Resources, We will have no wildlife Period left for our Children’s Children to enjoy in Yellowstone.

This Particular Hunter even admits it was the most foolish shot hed ever taken… Sounds more like he merely pointed at the Herd and Shot!

 

Excerpts from the Story:

On Sunday, Dec. 3, Casey Johnson came to our Meeteetse, Wyoming motel room. He would be my guide for the next three days on the cow elk hunt I had booked with Wood River Outfitters. Casey would prove to be strong, athletic, and extremely knowledgeable when it came to elk behavior.

During our pre-hunt motel room session, I learned that the Yellowstone herd — 2,000 to 3,000 of them — was wintering on Carter Mountain, part of the Absaroka Range. The elk were hopefully on the flat beneath the mountain, and in all likelihood, a cow elk would stand and look at me from 65 yards. Casey would be back at 6 a.m. to pick up Mike Hall and me in his quad cab Chevy.

Without thinking, I picked out a cow on the inside edge and followed her in my scope’s crosshairs. I swung a foot ahead and touched the trigger. When the herd cleared, a dead cow lay in the trodden snow. That shot was the most foolish I’ve ever taken in my life, as the consequences could have been disastrous. I was darn lucky.

The Latest: Wolf hearing gets off to tense start

Right now there are a number of Bills and poison rider to delist wolves, gut the Endangered Species Act and more.  Wisconsin has also put a new Bill out that has many hunters salivating.  The Bill would prohibit the Department of Natural Resources from spending any money to manage wolves beyond reimbursing people for depredation losses. State law enforcement officers would be barred from enforcing any law relating to wolf management or that prohibits killing wolves. NO PROTECTIONS and poaching will be in full swing.

The Wisconsin Northern Wisconsin Houndsmen Association and the Wisconsin Association of Sporting Dog Clubs cannot wait! They said they have all been waiting far too long to have protections removed for wolves.  Can you imagine?  These psychopaths  BAIT bears with anything they like, such as loads of surgery snacks and grease. They raise their dogs to be vicious killers to brutally hunt down hundreds of bears in this state. These trained dogs have no choice but to follow their owners commands. If anyone has ever seen a bear hounding video, it’s one of the most brutal things you will ever see in your lifetime. We know what will be in store for wolves if we do not take action.

On January 1st Protect the Wolves shared this action post to make it very easy for everyone to take action.

Here is the link to contact ALL Democrat Senators about upcoming bills stripping the endangered species act and delisting wolves.

Email them and paste this message into their comments section

Please block any rider that delist the wolves or harmful to any wildlife as well as our wild horses. Also block any repeal of our EPA regulations . Block any rider harmful to our National Parks and the Antiquities Act. Block any rider that is a big give away of our taxpayer funded public land to the logging , mining and oil industry. Respectfully, (your name)

Plus we have got to take these wolf killing states to court!!  Even $5 or $10 will help if we all pitch in! I know we can do this but please don’t wait until many more wolves are gone forever.  Thank you ~ L.G

The Latest: Wolf hearing gets off to tense start

MADISON, Wis. — The Latest on a bill that would end state wolf management (all times local):

10:55 a.m.

A public hearing on a Republican bill that would end state wolf management efforts is off to a tense start.

Democratic Rep. Nick Milroy began the proceeding in front of the Assembly natural resources committee Wednesday by complaining that the bill’s chief Assembly sponsor, Republican Adam Jarchow, didn’t show up to address the panel. He said he was disgusted by Jarchow’s absence. He said Jarchow proposed the bill simply to appeal to his conservative base as he heads into a special election for an open state Senate seat Tuesday. He questioned whether the committee’s chairman, Rep. Joel Kleefisch, called the hearing simply to help Jarchow score political points.

That brought a stinging rebuke from Kleefisch, who promised the election has no bearing on the bill and the committee won’t vote on the proposal until after the election is over.

Jarchow aides didn’t immediately reply to an email inquiring why Jarchow didn’t attend the hearing.

The bill would prohibit the Department of Natural Resources from spending any money to manage wolves other than to reimburse people for depredation. State law enforcement officers would be barred from enforcing any federal or state law relating to wolf management or that prohibits killing wolves.

Wisconsin wolves are on the federal endangered species list. The bill would be void if President Donald Trump’s administration removes them from the list.


9:34 a.m.

A legislative committee is set to take comments on a Republican bill that would end the state’s efforts to manage wolves.

The Assembly’s natural resources committee was set to hold what promises to be a charged public hearing on the measure Wednesday.

The bill would prohibit the Department of Natural Resources from spending any money to manage wolves other than to reimburse people for depredation. State law enforcement officers would be barred from enforcing any federal or state law relating to wolf management or that prohibits killing wolves.

Wisconsin wolves are on the federal endangered species list. The bill would be void if President Donald Trump’s administration removes them from the list.

Conservationists warn the bill would end attempts to track wolf population growth and lead to widespread poaching.

Will ODFW go after OR7? 2 more Dead calves blamed on Rogue Pack

or7, protect oregon wolves, protect the wolves

ODFW said though they’re not required,  however non-lethal measures can be used to reduce livestock depredation.

 

JACKSON COUNTY, Ore. – Two more calves were killed by wolves in Jackson County, just days after another calf was found dead.

On January 4 a cattle producer found a dead calf on private ranchland about six miles southeast of Prospect, in the Boundary Butte area. The 250-pound calf was found about 500 yards from a residence.

The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife determined the calf was killed by wolves. Evidence implicated the Rogue Pack.

On January 10, another dead calf was found close to a residence in the same area. GPS collar data placed wolf OR54 within ten yards of the carcass at 2:00 that morning. OR54 travels with the Rogue Pack. ODFW believe the calf died during the night of January 9.

The next day, ODFW officials found yet another calf. It’s estimated the calf died on the night of January 10. It was determined to be yet another kill by the Rogue Pack.

The Rogue Pack is known to roam between Jackson and Klamath Counties.

Wolves west of Highways 395, 78, and 95 are federally listed. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service regulates all management related to controlling wolf depredation in areas wolves are federally listed.

ODFW said though they’re not required, non-lethal measures can be used to reduce livestock depredation.
