Wolf Kills In Wyoming Conservative

March 5, 2013 Greater Yellowstone, State of Wyoming No Comments

Even as Wyoming continues to draw fire in the courtroom about its wolf hunting policy, Montana reports that 223 wolves were killed in the Treasure State during the season that ended last Thursday.  That compares with a total of 74 wolves killed since Wyoming took over managing the wolf population here last year – 68 of those during the 2012 hunting season and 6 killed as predators so far this year.  Environmental concerns oppose Wyoming’s wolf management plan saying the classification of the wolf as a predator in much of the state does not afford the species enough protection.  Montana Governor Steve Bullock and wildlife officials in that state, meanwhile say they believe they now have the right rules in place as Montana seeks to reduce predators there. Federal officials are continuing to monitor wolves in Idaho, Montana and Wyoming over five years to determine if endangered species protections should to be reinstated.

    I know, a show about giving thanks on Thanksgiving is pretty predictable. But it doesn’t feel right to overlook the importance of this day. However, because this is a program about the outdoors, I’ll just talk about the things in the outdoors I’m thankful for. There’s plenty of it. Especially here in Wyoming. We’ve got […]
  • Pelts are nearing prime conditions - November 26, 2014
    The days are getting shorter and the nights are getting longer. It’s the amount of daylight, and not the temperature, that causes wild animals to grow longer, thicker coats.
