wolf hunt

The 2013 trophy game hunting season for wolves in northwestern Wyoming opens tomorrow in all but one hunt area with a greatly reduced quota compared with last year.  Altogether, the quotas in trophy game areas collectively are half of what was permitted in last year’s hunt.  According to the Wyoming Game and Fish Department’s guidelines, this year’s quota in areas six through 12 is one dozen animals.  The quotas for areas one through five outside of Jackson Hole are 14 animals.  While the hunt opens October first in most areas, the Alpine hunt area, which is designated as area 12, does not open until October 15th. Hunting in each area concludes December 31st or when that area’s quota is reached.  At the end of 2012, there were an estimated 169 wolves and 15 breeding pairs in the trophy game area. Wyoming is required to maintain 100 wolves and 10 breeding pairs outside Yellowstone National Park and the Wind River Indian Reservation under an agreement that pulled Endangered Species Act protections from the animals.

    In my days in the mountains, I’ve seen some horse wrecks that probably should have turned my hair gray prematurely. I’ve had horses go lame on me deep in the backcountry. And I’ve been awakened in the night to the sound of thundering hooves receding down the trail toward the trailer. None of those situations […]

  • Diapers weren’t a magic bullet for staying cool - July 25, 2014
    I promised you yesterday that I’d test a new product to see how well it works to keep you cool when the temperatures climb toward triple digits.   In case you missed it, yesterday I talked about seeing an ad on TV for a new type of training pants. The ad said, and I quote, […]
