Barrasso Pledges Follow-through

John_Barrasso

The plan to remove wolves from federal protection in Wyoming was published Wednesday in the Federal Register, moving the action one step closer to reality.  Wyoming’s US Senator John Barrasso says he plans to continue to work through every step of the process to make sure Wyoming is in control of the wolves here – not Washington.  Barrasso says this is just one more step along the process which could potentially result in approval of the plan by next summer.  Still, says Barrasso, such a reality is by no means certain.  Barrasso says lawsuits and other complications could still derail the plan, but Fish and Wildlife Director Dan Ashe assures he will defend the plan vigorously.  The US Fish and Wildlife Department admits in the proposed rule, quoting now: “on the whole, we expect the statewide wolf population in Wyoming will be maintained well above minimum recovery levels.”  Comments on the published proposal are being accepted by mail or online through January 13th.

    Not long ago, I saw a message on one of the hunting blogs I like to read. The writer wanted hunters to send in accounts of disasters they’d had in the field. I bet he got swamped with emails. Every hunter I know has had at least one calamity in the woods. If you hunt, […]

  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]
