Wolf De-listing Back In Court

November 8, 2011 State of Idaho, State of Wyoming No Comments

The wolf management question is again heading back to court today.  Wildlife advocates are claiming the move by Congress that cleared the way for hunting in Montana and Idaho last spring breached the separation of powers under the Constitution. Congress took the unprecedented step of stripping Endangered Species Act protections from more than 1,300 wolves across five states. Wildlife advocates have sued to reverse the move and want the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Pasadena, California to suspend the hunts. They claim Congress violated the Constitution’s separation of powers mandate by reversing prior court rulings that kept protections in place.  So far, more than 150 wolves have been harvested this year by hunters in the Northern Rockies.  Meanwhile, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is monitoring the hunts, and say they have no plans to intervene because wolves have recovered in the region and the states have promised to manage them responsibly.

    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 […]
