Mead

Governor Matt Mead is cheering the statistics showing Wyoming’s highway fatalities are decreasing.  Mead established the Governor’s Council on Impaired Driving in 2011 to curtail alcohol-related highway deaths, and late last week, he told reporters that the group has made good progress on that front.  He says the state has begun tracking fatalities in 1967.  He says if the state finishes the year up well, there will have been 82 traffic fatalities will be the lowest number since then. Still, Mead warns that the holiday period currently under way is typically a time when the number of impaired drivers on Wyoming’s roads is highest.  Consequently, he says the state’s highway patrol will be out in force to help keep the number of alcohol-related fatalities down.

  • Use a decoy to get your goat - September 11, 2014
    I don’t think I’d try it during the rifle season, but if your antelope area’s still open to archery only, a decoy might be just the trick you need. After the pronghorns have broken into their harem groups, the bucks get extremely territorial. Just sit back and watch them sometime. If another buck gets anywhere […]
