Wait And See With Bison

Stephens Creek

Participants in the Interagency Bison Management Plan have suspended plans to ship bison to slaughter from Yellowstone National Park until a federal district judge rules on a challenge filed by wildlife advocates last week.  Park Spokesman Al Nash says about 380 bison were hazed into the Stephens Creek facility on the north end of the park and are being tested for brucellosis.  Those found to be infected were to have been shipped to slaughter. Brucellosis can cause wildlife and livestock to prematurely abort their young and it is feared the bison could pass the disease along to domestic cattle if allowed to intermingle on private land. Nash says about a third of those animals tested have been positively identified to be infected.  Those not infected would be returned to the park at green-up in April.

  • Show me a line, I’ll show you a wind knot - August 26, 2014
    My fly line tippets never last me very long. Early in the season, I’ll put a new wind knot in a tippet on every cast. I’ve actually gotten two knots on a single cast before. I don’t even know how that’s possible, but I’ve done it. I’ve gotten wind knots in my leader, too, and […]
  • I’ll take a full-size truck, please - August 25, 2014
    I mentioned last week that I’ve had the opportunity for an extended test drive of a Nissan Titan, and I compared it to the smaller Nissan Frontier. The Frontier’s smaller size gives it a little better ability to get through tight spots and over rough roads, but I still like a full-size truck for hunting […]
