Lummis Addresses Sportsmen

Lummis

US Representative Cynthia Lummis told the Wyoming Sportsmen for Fish and Wildlife this weekend that while the wolf hunt in Wyoming fulfilled its objectives during 2012, it did not go far enough to protect game animals against predation.  Lummis says the state was very conservative in the numbers set for the 2012 hunt, and totals fell below those quotas.  However, Wyoming game and Fish Department recently released its count of moose in the ecosystem and said it was the second lowest number seen in 28 years.  Lummis said, “We have a terrible problem with the number of moose calves surviving to adulthood due in a very large part to the expanse in moose numbers.  If we want to have a diverse population,  wolves are going to have to be managed .”  On another issue, Lummis said the effect of the gun debate on hunters is the same as on any law-abiding gun-owning citizen – and there are times when a multiple bullet clip makes sense or an automatic rifle.  She said the debate should not be about who should be able to justify their ownership of such weapons, but rather the country’s ability to identify those who shouldn’t own such weapons.  The banquet was held Saturday at the Virginian Convention Center in Jackson.
