Wolves Delisted In Midwest

Wolf-JohnKarenHolingsworth-USFWS

Even as Wyoming waits for a decision from the state legislature and a related decision from the US Fish and Wildlife Service regarding de-listing of the wolf in the Rocky Mountain region, Interior Secretary Ken Salazar yesterday announced that the gray wolf would be removed from the endangered species list in the Great Lakes Region.  That region includes Michigan, Minnesota, Wisconsin and portions of adjoining states.  That de-listing will take effect in 30 days.  In this region, a five-member panel of scientists met in Denver last October to review the Fish and Wildlife Service proposed delisting rule and Wyoming wolf management plan.  At the same time, a 100-day public comment period on the proposed delisting rule was launched and a public hearing was held in Riverton November 15th . The results of the review are expected to be published by the end of the year.

    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 […]
