Game Wastage

We got out with the ATV's and rifles this week. We weren't very far into it when we cut a track of a moose running down the road, on top of those tracks was the track of a single very large wolf.

We have hunted this area long enough to remember when there were no moose in it. We remember the first tracks. We remember the increase in population enough to support limited tags. We remember when it became common to see more moose than deer. We remember the appearance of giant mature bulls, whose antlers were a testament to the age, and health of that herd. Record class animals, animals that could challenge for top spots in the book. Animals of a quality that caused us to say without hesitation the best Shiras Moose on the planet lived in our backyard.

These animals did not fall from the sky. We remember it was the hunters dollars that provided the transport of problem animals out of town and into areas that offered a chance of survival.

Now we get to watch the end of 100+ years of conservation and management, caused by an "experiment" that everyone understood the outcome of before the first wolf was boxed for transport. Now folks that never ponied up a penny for either species get to spitefully decide how they will be managed. Make no mistake spite is the only card they have to play, we can't reason with unreasonable people.

It's private timber company ground, and we are at point in our history where turtles are used to push humans off public ground. How long before we aren't allowed in to shoot and recreate there. How long before the owners are prohibited from managing their timber the way they see fit.

FOR A DAMN DOG!

A line from a favorite song, "I just thank the Lord, I wasn't born no later than what I was".

With "Wildlife Directors" whose resume's include "Earth First", pro-wolf, and anti hunting group memberships, we're cooked here.

Apologies to you young folks, some of us had intentions to leave you with better. We counted too heavily on common sense, and first hand experience trumping the lies at some point. Game wastage is the against the law, those responsible for this debacle should pay that fine, from where I sit a tragic waste is what is happening.

Re: Game Wastage

Well said.

Get on board, folks, and understand what is going on.

And, this is ultimately not about the wolf or the turtle, it's about control. The philosophy goes much deeper than worrying about a wolf.

Watch the movie online for free:

Crying Wolf | Exposing the Wolf Reintroduction to Yellowstone National Park

Then watch his latest movie, "BLUE" which talks about how the 'green movement' is in many ways, in reality, actually producing the opposite effect of what is says it hopes to accomplish.

Sadly the moose were the first thing to go in the back country here also. The outfitters haven't seen one in years. We too had some world class bulls. I don't understand how anyone could like animals,as some say they do, and not feel for the elk and moose. I really don't think they care about animals but rather are using these predators to try to control us. A rather interesting scene unfolding in Nevada. Those folks that showed up are probably a little more radical than most. Wait until the silent majority shows up.

Re: Game Wastage

It is part of the democrat power grab. One side offers a no nonsense solution to the problem, because they actually want to enjoy the outdoors. The power hungry other side, offers over the top solutions to paint their opponents as cruel and uncaring when they disagree.
So if you are against the reintroduction of an "endangered" species, you are cruel and are getting in the way of environmentalists healing the planet!
How dare you!

These groups produce nothing but a "carbon footprint" but theirs doesn't count because they're the good guys. Ultimate arrogance, totally detached from reality.

The American conservation model (hunters) was saving endangered species before the term was coined.

The silent majority that felt the work spoke for itself, failed at understanding the opposition. Unconstrained by jobs they have nothing but free time. Financed by welfare and foreign nationals they get good press, and an absent press when it suits them,

Re: Game Wastage

It needs to remain clear that this was an introduction, not a reintroduction. It's just more PC to say reintroduction and then argue that it was a close match. We didn't historically have this strain (call it what you want) of animal, at least not down here right near the original release site, nor did we have the lovely tapeworms that came with them which can be classified as nothing less than an invasive species. If you or I introduced an invasive species that threatened an ecosystem, let alone human life (no matter to what extent), we would find ourselves in a courtroom fighting for our freedom. They get a pass and a whoops.

Bottom line is if IDFG doesn't get their heads on straight and take care of this problem, there will be no more sportsman money coming into this state (or surrounding states) for them to manage.

There is more than one government agency responsible for natural resources that needs to quite cow towing to these environmentalist and special interest groups and start managing their respective resources instead of revenue. If we needed money managers, we'd hire accountants!

OMG this pisses me off. Rant over.
