This is the second good Administration wildlife decision in recent days-
The other one is the protection of the jaguar.

Ralph – an article regarding the Bison Plan and public comment was just posted on the Bozeman Chronicle website. I think many here would appreciate the opportunity to comment.

The best way to increase numbers of Bull Trout is to restore Salmon in large numbers. I used to catch large Bull Trout in the East Fork of the Salmon in Idaho in the 1950s and 60s when I was fishing for Salmon. Bull trout thrive where there are lots of small Salmon to eat.
I still catch Bull Trout near Haynes, Alaska when fishing for Salmon. There are large Salmon runs in the local rivers there and the Bull Trout are doing well.
