G&F continue to capture bighorn sheep to monitor for disease
County 10
The Wyoming Game and Fish Department is continuing its multiyear research project on bighorn sheep in the Jackson Region. Recently, 10 female bighorn sheep were captured for disease sampling with eight of those being fitted with radio collars in an effort to learn more about their survival and migration patterns and the presence of disease. Since 2011, a total of 29 bighorn ewes have been collared with 19 of those currently still alive.

DNR says wolf hunt targeted problem animals
Daily Tribune
Most of the wolves killed during the recent hunt in Michigan's Upper Peninsula probably belonged to packs that have caused problems for people, which partially fulfilled a primary objective of the season even though fewer animals were shot than expected, state wildlife biologists say. Twenty-three gray wolves died in the state's first regulated hunt of the predator since the upper Great Lakes population was dropped from the federal endangered species list in 2012. The Department of Natural Resources had set a target of 43 wolves for the season, which ran from Nov. 15 through December.

Hello kitty: More black wildcat reports surface
East County Magazine
Assistant Border Patrol Chief Rosario "Pete" Vasquez told ECM, "I saw one on Mountain Laguna, maybe 20 years ago. It was daytime and there was snow on the ground, so you could definitely tell it was all black." The big cat weighed about 90 or 100 pounds, he estimated. Chief Vasquez said he was hiking a few hundred yards off a road when he spotted the large black cat "just lying in a big open field."

Panel: Unsettled science behind proposal to lift gray wolf protections
Live Science
The drawn-out battle over the fate of gray wolves in the United States continues. An independent panel of experts said Feb. 7 there is wide disagreement about some of the science the Fish and Wildlife Service used to make its case for ousting gray wolves from the Endangered Species list. The review could hinder the FWS proposal to lift federal protections for the animals throughout much of the United States.

For former Wisconsin farm boy, the thrill of guiding hunters in Alaska is mostly about the pursuit
The Country Today
For Alaska hunting guide Billy Molls, it's more about the pursuit than the kill. "Big-game hunting is not always about getting what you intended. It's the experience that I find most satisfying and gratifying about hunting in Alaska," said Molls, 36, who was raised on a Turtle Lake dairy farm. "It's the sunsets, the sunrises and how you can wake up in the morning and can't hear a sound," he said.

The female bighorn sheep looked like two sacks of potatoes as the helicopter lowered them to the ground. Blindfolded and hobbled, they stayed motionless while a crew of wildlife biologists, game wardens and a veterinarian ran to them to begin testing.

Letter: Hunting fees fund wildlife preservation
The Daily Courier
In response to the Dec. 3 Letter to the Editor by Frances Thomas regarding hunting, it is unlikely you'd get two of the same answers on why hunting is important to individuals. If the stated case regarding the actions of these particular hunters is accurate, it is safe to say they could have and should have shown better judgment and more sensitivity for those who do not hunt. That written, the Arizona Game and Fish Department receives no general fund money (your state taxes), and the truth of the matter is that hunting and fishing dollars pay for wildlife conservation efforts.

The wonder of wolf watching in Yellowstone
The Salt Lake Tribune
Dina Mishev,Special to The Washington Post, writes: "Despite the down jacket I'm wearing, puffier than any of the low clouds scudding across the sky, I'm shivering. Or perhaps the shivering is from the scene framed by my spotting scope: a pack of wolves tearing into an elk carcass. The face of a dun-colored wolf is stained with blood. I can't believe that I ever thought wolf-watching was boring. The first time I went wolf-watching in Yellowstone National Park, in 2006 with the Jackson Hole Conservation Alliance, I was ready to call it quits on the first afternoon."
