Mead Signs Wolf Management Agreement

Wolf Bill Signing

Wyoming’s plan for managing the population of wolves residing within the state is now official – made so by the stroke of Governor Matt Mead’s pen Wednesday afternoon.  Upon signing the measure, Mead acknowledged that it came as the result of a major team effort on the parts of legislators and a variety of interest groups.  Mead told those on hand, “After 18 years of struggle, I think we’re well on our way to giving the state management of wolves.  I think this plan; while all plans, none of them are perfect, a lot of thought and effort went into this.”  Mead says as the state enters the first year of the agreement, the state Game and Fish Commission will set the appropriate number of wolf hunting licenses should be; and that, he says, will be appropriately conservative.  Mead says the burden now is on the federal government.  Wyoming has done its part and now will “hold their feet to the fire” (in his words) to see to it the agreement is carried out.  US Congresswoman Cynthia Lummis responded to the signing saying everyone has given a little on the deal and the remaining question now is (quoting Lummis) “whether the litigation crowd will continue their obstruction.”  The management agreement takes effect immediately.

  • Shoot some skeet if you’re feeling like a crack shot - July 18, 2014
    I shot at a lot of clay pigeons when I was a kid, but I never did it at an organized trap or skeet club. And I’ve shot at a lot of birds, both upland and waterfowl. I may not have been born with a shotgun in my hand, but I picked one up not […]
  • Change gears on the outdoor activities - July 17, 2014
    Next week’s the last full week in July, and if you live anywhere near Cheyenne, that means Cheyenne Frontier Days. It actually starts tomorrow. I kind of got into the habit of absorbing everything Frontier Days has to offer when I was working at the newspaper, and I can’t seem to get it out of […]
