Yellowstone National Park together with Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks will host a workshop in Montana next week, to examine the science behind the disease brucellosis and help improve the management of the Yellowstone bison population. A panel of scientists with backgrounds in wildlife management and disease ecology will discuss current conservation and disease management objectives regarding bison and brucellosis, and examine public attitudes toward the disease.  The objective of the workshop is to come up with recommendations for future management of the bison population in and near the park including the feasibility of significantly suppressing the disease in bison; the potential impacts of suppression activities; the likelihood that disease suppression will result in more tolerance for bison and help advance bison conservation.  The workshop is open for public observation.  Brucellosis is a bacterial disease that can be easily spread from bison to cattle in the area and cause cattle to abort their calves.

  • Back to normal at the trap range - April 17, 2014
    By some strange luck, I shot really well last week in our trap league. But last night, I didn’t do so well. Not even close. The thing about shooting trap is that you’re bound to have good rounds once in a while. Those good nights give you hope that you’re improving. For some people, that […]
  • Cowboy O-Line Being Told To Be the Hammer, Not the Nail [AUDIO] - April 16, 2014
    The Wyoming Cowboy football team will have one more practice before Saturday’s spring game.  The major focus this spring, at least for the offensive line, is to be more physical and deliver the blows.  As offensive line coach Scott Fuchs tells the unit, “be the hammer, not the nail”.  That’s a difference in philosophy between […]
