    Ladies and Gents,

    While I’m over here in Japan and pondering retirement, I thought I’d get a head start on life and finish my bachelors degree. My degree will be a BS in Environmental Science with a concentration in Wildlife and Fish Management. Our final project for the course is a power point presentation on a fish and/or wildlife controversy. I’d like to present something that affects NC(but not limited), being that’s where I’ve lived most of my adult life and will likely retire. The red wolf restoration was at the top of my list, but I’d like to hear any other suggestions.

    Carey

    Concentrate on something " useful". Not something
    Like recovering the red wolf!

    In other words, don't be a bunny huggn liberal that has an agenda from the git- go.

    I do not support one side or the other on the red or grey wolf restoration. I’ve not done enough studying on either side to form an educated opinion. I will say in regards to grey wolves, there are studies out of Montana State University that suggest the wolves are doing more good than harm, when you look at it from the entire ecosystem perspective.

    Tell that to all the ranchers that are losing thousands of dollars. I call BS on the wolves making the ecosystem better. Just ask anybody that has been around a while.

    Bears south of I-85, hogs (farming and feral management), impacts of endangered or threatened water species and society/development, there is also a gap in NC expertise around (esp venemous) snakes (as the prior expert from Davidson is caught up in legal woes), impacts of Alcoa sales of their land in Central NC and the impacts on game lands (contact 3 river land trust).

    Bears south of I-85? As far as I’ve know there have always been bears south of I-85. I’m not sure I’m tracking what your putting down.

    Not NC but some come to mind..

    The "Shoot Them with a Camera" deal.. non hunters buying grizz tags so hunters can't, then shooting them with a camera.
    The BC Grizz hunting ban
    Spring bear season ban in CO
    Relisting of wolves when the populations are above the delisting goal
    Reintroduction of wolves sneaking its way onto a Colorado ballot
    The selling of GPS coordinates of animal locations

    Some "university biologist" is full of BS. Universities are full of tree hugging liberals who want nothing more than to end hunting. The wolves they "reintroduced" we're not the extinct kind but Canadian wolves that are bigger and more aggressive. Who am I going to believe . The ranchers who live with the problem, the people that have seen the before and after or some college kid that can distort the truth to fit his agenda.

    Pretty big of you to make such an assumption there internet tough guy. I’m an avid hunter, and competitive archer, and registered independent. How I differ from you is I consider all aspects of the argument, not just that of ranchers, farmers and hunters. While hunting is weighs heavily in how I form my opinions, it’s not the only consideration. You should try reading studies from more than one perspective.

    I’ve since completed the project, and some of the topics you listed arose after the course completed. What I wish I would have went into deeper was the foreign conservation groups that have a hand in this process. There are a couple groups out of Florida that international financial support. My personal opinion is that the grey wolves deserve to be in our eco system, but should be managed to sustain the multi use sustain model that is used for planning how we use our lands in America. Some of the activities in Michigan and Colorado are about money rather making sure our ecosystem is more robust.

    Grey wolf/Canadian wolf are the same genetic animal. The red wolf was government plan gone wrong and when DNA proved it, conservation groups were clinging to the program for funding.

    Understanding the bear management plan isn’t hard. Understand a statement like bears south of I-85 is hard to understand your position. Please elaborate.
