Hi to Everyone.
Just a quick report this time around, as I am getting ready to head to Tucson, AZ for some predator hunting. My wife says I procrastinate too much and this is why my report is short.
I been hearing lately all the garbage on the news and internet about wolves. The Relisting of the Great Lakes Wolves by a judge who had no biological reason to do so. But lately, they are attacking a Super Bowl Commercial. The Budweiser Lost Puppy one where the puppy confronts a wolf! Well the Anti’s are saying that’s not what a wolf would do in the wild and the commercial depicts the wolf as being bad. And that canines will not harm each other, but the wolf would have taken the puppy in and cared for it. Right! What’s next? No Little Red Riding Hood fairy tales told in daycares or schools??? People, we live in a society where everything matters to everyone. So if we have the chance, we should educate anyone who has a half a brain or more. Right now in U.S. Congress there is a bill being sought for the Great Lake States and Wyoming to release the Management of the Wolves to those states. Please by all means contact your Congress Person to vote yes for this bill to pass. Then it would be up to each state’s Game & Fish Department to Manage the Wolves, like Montana and Idaho. Enough on that subject for now, since I said it was going to be short. Oh by the way, I did manage to snare my first wolf this year!
Summer Convention season will be here shortly and people are making vacation plans. The convention will be held in Bemidji this year at the fairgrounds on Aug.14, 15, & 16. I hope to see a lot of old friends and always wanting to meet new ones too. It seems like an Annual Family Reunion to the wife and me. With fur prices still pretty fair, I think there will be a very good attendance as in the past. Of course District 7 will have assigned duties like always, so please volunteer your time to help out, if you can. Even an hour of your time is appreciated!
Well that is all the time I have for now, since there is some packing to do for the trip. I will have pictures to share, even if I don’t shoot something.
Later and Keep on Trapping!
