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.

  • 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 […]
