I have been looking at the calendar on the DWR site and I can't see a date for putting in for sage grouse, does anyone know when that will be?
That's the best hour I've spent in a long time.here is a great program regarding the sage grouse
It's this sort of talk that might have Benson sending you an email. and we paid 2 million dollars for that email.Could we...hunters...help by voluntarily stop shooting these birds just for sport. Lords knows I am not anti hunting, but are we really doing our part to insure the survival of this species.
What other people or groups do, good or bad, should have no bearing on our response to a clear problem.
I personally stopped hunting Sage grouse years ago, I hope I have helped in some small way.
The same could be said about antelope. I like sage grouse because I can hunt them, I am have interest in their success because I have that connection to them. Do I give a care about the June sucker--heck no and I bet most of you don't either, because you have no connection to them. If the sage grouse have a sustainable population and limited hunting doesn't affect their numbers then we should hunt them so people will get to know them and care about them.I just don't get why we hunt them anyway. Nasty tasting. Easy to hit. And sure, when the boomers boom, it'll scare the crap out of you, but I really don't get why people in general hunt them anyway. Just not a good game bird.
Yeah, that's an interesting point of view.Are we all in denial that natural predators kill 100 birds for every one shot by a hunter who pays for a tag employ's a biologist and conservation officers to conserve them.
Geez, go ahead stick your head in the sand. Stop those evil humans from destroying the lek and let the predators do what they do and you will still loose the 2nd dumbest bird in the world next to the turkey.
A grouse not shot by a hunter is just predator feed.
