Wyoming at last takes over the management of wolves within the state today.  While Governor Matt Mead says there are still people who do not agree with the state’s management plan, he assures it is based in sound science and endorsed by both the Secretary of Interior and the Director of Fish and Wildlife.  Furthermore, he says it has been peer reviewed twice, and it allows for state control of the wolves which is very important since the state best understands the condition of the wolves locally, it allows flexibility in the management.  Mead says he understands the plan will face challenges once again, but the state very hopeful that with the work that went into it assuring it was scientifically sound, it will withstand litigation pressure.  Management of wolf numbers in the state is to be achieved through licensed hunting with stringent regulations for the northwestern portion of the state outside the national parks where the animal has been classified as “trophy game.”

  • Don’t commercialize hunting - November 20, 2014
    The state of New Jersey is dealing with a huge whitetail deer overpopulation problem. To get more people to get out and hunt those deer, and hopefully bring the population down to a more manageable level, the state is toying with the idea of allowing the commercial sale of meat from wild deer.
