    If it walks like a dick and talks like a dick...probably a dick

    But the world needs people that shake things up rather then follow blindly

    gcreek:

    " ...have witnessed what 40 years of mismanagement by those with degrees and creation of “management models” have done to the local moose, deer and caribou populations."

    I can't disagree with the state of affairs. We are where we are because we've mismanaged our impact on the landscape. If we hadn't mismanaged things we wouldn't be talking about it now.

    Here's one thing that always gets me stuck though - there are a few guys here who seem to dismiss wildlife bios as simply in it for the money, not knowing what they're talking about, and not being supportive of predator control.

    And yet I've heard wildlife bios say things like "Oh, we know who's eating them" or "BTW, we've been making this predator reduction recommendation for over a decade now".

    I've also heard bios say "Make sure you know what you're talking about when you pull the predator reduction lever, because if you're wrong you don't accomplish anything and you burn up a shit ton of social capital".

    That doesn't sound to me like guys who are completely opposed to predator reduction, or like guys who don't know what's killing the animals that they study. It actually sounds reasonable.

    I think that maybe you're blaming the wrong guys, or maybe doing it with too broad of a paintbrush (maybe politicians like listening to the bios who well them what they want to hear).

    I think we don't have more predator control because the politicians understand that it will cost them in spades. I say that especially after reading the report where the bio said (and I paraphrase) "I've been telling you guys this for a decade and you still don't listen". It seems unfair to characterize him as a know nothing if the real problem is that his bosses are ignoring him.

    If you know of bios employed by government who are making what you think are stupid decisions can you send me that info?

With my wifes cancer, there were and still are many good support groups, it has help us greatly, be nice to see the Dana of old on here again.
    hahaha. You skin is sooo thick you go fishing by calling someone a dick and then get butt hurt when they respond back. hahaha! If you are going play with the big boys don't be such a sensitive pussy the next time.

    As for wanting the dana of old, time must have clouded your memories. When haven't I been a dick on HBC. Seem to remember getting banned plenty of times because people got their pussys hurt. Hahaha. Once a dick always a dick I guess. As for anger, nope, your read on me is wrong. Life is very good!

    Funny how we are also doing a Mule Deer Study and we still have Doe Draws across to Regions. Could this be just another Opportunity Grab?
    Declining Mule Deer numbers and LEH Does. That's good science.

    Science trumping democracy(social science) otherwise known as politics...is totalitarian. Thus the appeal. Oh to be not be beholden to the ignorant masses.

    Like religion of the past and present...allah,god,climate. Science like religion even has its end times myth. The self prescribed intellectual cannot escape the human condition. They have created an end times just like past scribes...no different,same shit different pile....
