Public Land Predator Hunt Permit Yanked

A coyote hunting contest, or derby, if you will, has drawn lawsuits from the usual suspects in Idaho and a public land permit has been rescinded by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM).

Idaho for Wildlife Executive Director Steve Alder said, “We worked very hard with the local BLM to be granted the permit,” he said. “After the BLM refused to grant us a permit last year, they advised us to start the permit process early and we jumped through every hoop they required. They issued us a permit and then the D.C. bureaucrats revoked it. The BLM policies need to be changed, and we will push for more legislative oversight of this out-of-control agency that is now caving to the radical anti-hunters.”

The hunt will go on and details are here…

Montana hunters find booming waterfowl numbers

In the Prairie Pothole region, wildlife biologists had estimated the duck numbers up 8 percent since last year’s record numbers – a total of a 43 percent increase over the past 60+ years.

This spring, biologists estimated the duck population to slightly top 49 million birds. That was an 8 percent increase over the record numbers of ducks seen just the year before.

That population represents a 43 percent increase over the long-term average of ducks that have been counted the past seven decades.

Thank you hunters and your conservation contributions in the form of licenses and excise-taxed gear over the years!
