Anti-bison landowners to deny hunter access

Some Montana landowners are dropping out of a hunter access program to protest the state’s plans to relocate bison from Yellowstone National Park.

The Billings Gazette reports (http://bit.ly/UfmrQJ) dozens of landowners have published their names in northeastern Montana newspaper ads saying they plan to close their lands to hunters until state officials drop those plans.

Retired rancher Rich Sudduth from the Hinsdale area said the move is designed to get the attention of Fish, Wildlife and Parks by cutting into its revenue.

“If the hunters don’t have any place to hunt, they won’t buy high-dollar licenses,” he said.

    FYI: Montana & Idaho has had a lot of Californicators migrate to those wonderful northwest states & continue to screw things up for the true Montanans & Idahodians. (I used to live in the Idaho panhandle & Idahodian is a little pet name for their state). In Riggins, Id – a well known area for deer & elk hunting – there is a general store there that has a sign back by the counter where the licenses, etc are sold & it reads thus: “Limit: 1 Elk or 2 Californians!”. When I moved up there in 1982 one of the 1st questions I got from people I just met was “Where are you from” & upon answering “Arizona” they would always say “Thank God you’re not from California!” Now, Arizona has the same problem since the Californians began migrating to Prescott & Flagstaff!!!! We call it “the Granola Bowl” ’cause once you get past the fruits & nuts all is left are the flakes!!!!!!

      So true Poodleguy. My family has been in Idaho since the 1880’s and Utah since the 1840’s. I am about 75 miles from the Canadian border and the best news we hear is “I don’t like the long winters and there are too many dirt roads so I am going back to California”. Our reply “GOODbye”.
