Supreme Court Mulls Arguements

grizzly bears

The Wyoming Supreme Court yesterday heard arguments in the case of an environmentalist denied access to state records related to endangered species protection for grizzly bears. Robert Aland sought records that supported the conclusion that Yellowstone grizzly population is healthy enough to be removed from protection as a threatened species under the Endangered Species Act. He had been denied on the grounds that the documents exempted under executive privilege, even though that is not a provision the explicitly exists under Wyoming’s public records law. There is no indication when the Supreme Court will make its ruling in the case. Aland had been numbered among the group of activists who protested the November 2012 killing of a grizzly bear by hunters in Grand Teton National park when that bear charged them and did not break off the charge when barraged with pepper spray.

  • 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 […]
