Many Jackson Hole area boaters are disregarding Wyoming’s invasive species inspections.

The Associated Press says invasive species decals are required for most watercraft.
The state of Wyoming is giving the town a Jackson $1 million to cover some of its landslide damage. The town asked the State Lands and Investment Board for a $6.35 million emergency grant to help pay for the $7.5 million they expect to use stabilizing the hillside.

Jackson Hole Daily says Varley filed a previous lawsuit in 2007 asking for millions in damages

Jackson’s Town Council still isn’t letting people camp in their cars overnight within city limits because they say people will abuse the laws. The council rejected the idea earlier this week.

A hunt with no disasters isn’t as much fun - October 24, 2014 Not long ago, I saw a message on one of the hunting blogs I like to read. The writer wanted hunters to send in accounts of disasters they’d had in the field. I bet he got swamped with emails. Every hunter I know has had at least one calamity in the woods. If you hunt, […]

My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014 Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]
