Wyoming Honored By Interior Dept.

Sage-grouse

Wyoming’s effort to keep sage-grouse off of the endangered species list was recognized by U.S. Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar. Wyoming was one of 17 recipients of a “Partners in Conservation” award.  In June Governor Matt Mead signed the Sage-Grouse Core Area Protection Executive Order. It updated an Order signed by Governor Dave Freudenthal providing more flexibility for management in the core areas.  Governor Mead says he believes what makes the plan work is that it was a state-led effort and he is happy to see the federal government recognize Wyoming with this award.

  • Back to normal at the trap range - April 17, 2014
    By some strange luck, I shot really well last week in our trap league. But last night, I didn’t do so well. Not even close. The thing about shooting trap is that you’re bound to have good rounds once in a while. Those good nights give you hope that you’re improving. For some people, that […]
