Yellowstone Related News and Politics • Re: RIP Wolf 911M

I did not realize until recently that his father was Medium Gray of the Blacktails. Sad that they both died the same way ~ wolf on wolf conflict.

Yellowstone Related News and Politics • RIP Wolf 911M

911M, alpha male of the Junction Butte pack was killed today in a confrontation with the Prospect Peak pack in Lamar Valley. Details will soon be following, but it's sad to hear of his passing, especially since I spent so many days watching him and his pack in June.

I also first saw him when he was with 970F (before she was collared) and a yearling male before he took over as alpha.

He will be missed. Also, the beta male 890M (former JB alpha male) has moved on to become alpha male of the Mollies pack.

If you would like to post pics of this amazing wolf, please feel free to post here. The only pic I got of him was this past June after he and a yearling chased a pronghorn fawn unsuccessfully. If you look in the center of the pic, you will see him laying there.

Yellowstone Related News and Politics • Re: High On Life is back in business

I don't think they would be sincere in any apology because they keep on destroying natural wonders. I don't know about jail time but I'd sure as hell make them do so supervised labor like picking up trash and cleaning areas of the parks that need grunt work done. They have ZERO respect-bunch of whiny brat babies.

What are the odds they will show up? Zero to -50%?? I hope they do and get nailed.

Yellowstone Related News and Politics • Re: Yellowstone River Closed In Response To Ongoing Fish Kil

Good news update for anglers. The Stillwater River has just re-opened but the stretch of the Yellowstone R. that runs through Paradise Valley (south of Livingston) was still closed as of yesterday. Think I'll try wetting a line on the Stillwater. Streams and rivers inside the Park are still open.

Yellowstone Related News and Politics • Re: Yellowstone River Closed In Response To Ongoing Fish Kil

Sad to say that the fish kill and stream closures are more than "serious". They're absolutely devastating to the Montanans who own property and/or who operate businesses in the communities located near the Yellowstone or near one of its tributaries like the Boulder River, the Stillwater River and the Shields River. Tourism, fishing and outdoor recreation are key components of the MT State and local economies. So, unless the fish kill stops soon, it's going to have lasting effects and consequences for all Montanans and the State.

Yellowstone Related News and Politics • Re: US Hwy 89/191/287 CLOSED between Flagg Ranch - Leeks Mar

Saw this information linked on Facebook. http://wildfiretoday.com/2016/08/23/maple-fire-closes-south-entrance-to-yellowstone-national-park/. Apparently the decision was made on 7/25 to allow this one to burn rather than suppressing it.

With the Maple fire burning near the West Entrance road, we decided not to come up this weekend. We'd debated it, but figure it's going to be too smoky to be very pleasant.

Crap. I'm going to be in the park in three weeks. I really hope the fires are under control by then or it's going to be a nightmare.

This sounds like some pretty serious stuff. Got to wonder where it came from. Lots of visiting fisher men and women in that stretch of river.

Yellowstone Related News and Politics • Yellowstone River Closed In Response To Ongoing Fish Kill


(Bozeman, Mont.) - Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks is implementing an immediate closure of all water-based recreation (fishing, wading, floating, tubing, boating, etc.) on the Yellowstone River and its tributaries from Yellowstone National Park’s northern boundary at Gardiner to the Highway 212 bridge in Laurel. This significant action on the part of the Department is in response to the ongoing and unprecedented fish kill on the Yellowstone. This action is necessary to protect the fishery and the economy it sustains. The closure will also help limit the spread of the parasite to adjacent rivers through boats, tubes, waders and other human contact and minimize further mortality in all fish species.
