Wolf Survey Nears Its End

Wolf Capture

The Wyoming Game and Fish Department is wrapping up a successful wolf capturing and collaring effort conducted intermittently over the last six weeks in northwest Wyoming.  Under the state management plan, Game and Fish personnel are to capture and collar wolves in the Wolf Trophy Game Management Area annually to monitor population size and distribution in Wyoming.  Wolves were captured by a helicopter crew using either a dart gun with a chemical immobilization drug or by an aerial net gun. So far, state officials say the department has radio collared 16 wolves in the Jackson, Meeteetse, and Cody areas.  Information collected from the collars helps document the population status of the animal so that the state can assure the species remains biologically recovered.  The official wolf population estimate prepared by the Wyoming Game and Fish Department will be available to the public in April.

    Just how does a new offensive philosophy affect the wide receivers?  One position that the Wyoming Cowboys were deep at on the offensive side of the ball was wide receiver.  That’s because they were used to trotting out five wide-outs every snap, so the need for those players was essential.  Now that two, maybe three […]
  • Why can’t I find old-school camo? Wait, don’t answer that. - August 27, 2014
    Where did that good old, brown, tan and black camo pattern go? You know what I mean. The pattern duck and goose hunters used to wear all the time. It was just splotches of dark brown, light brown and a little bit of black. Big splotches. I’ve been complaining for years that you can’t find […]
