It is men such as these, who helped us keep the right to trap due to their scientific approach to trapping. When they proved the best trap methodology was not the cruel approach which Animal Rights propagandists are selling they helped us retain our right to trap. https://tinyurl.com/yxdevfqe

Hope a lot of trappers took the time to read this article because of its input into our modern ability to maintain positive impact in wildlife management. Just press the Tiny url link and you will get a lot of info that will help you on the trapline as well as in the education fields. A lot of students can gain info for their own story in front of the classroom.

Not to pee on your parade here but the biologist that know what works are often left out of the equations or just plain ignored. Politicians are looking for votes is often the goal not the conservation needs at the time. Just look at CA, NM, CO and AZ no real basis for their decisions just politics.

Whether ignored or not the Science is there to further our cause & it can be used to discredit Politicians who ignored the warnings of their Scientific peers when things go sour at the city watershed. The battles lost to emotionalism are often won at a later date by proving the original science was ignored & much more costly over time. Politicians often pay the price for that oversight which is a great thing.

"The mad man shouted in the market place,
no one stopped to answer him. Thus, it was confirmed
that his thesis was incontrovertible."
-Dag Hammarshkjold
Secretary General of the United Nations

"It is important to answer the mad man.
It is important because, left unanswered,
his lies and his malice can poison the climate.
They can do worse. They can make other men mad. Left
unanswered for long enough, they can nourish everything in
men and women that is hateful and destructive and murderous.

Our end is to ensure that every time the madman
shouts in the market place, he is answered."
-Roy McMurtry, Attorney General of Ontario

A very good read. I enjoyed the walk through history. Loved how they used a video to get the governments attention. However drastic the measure was. It was an honest side of the coin that needed to be addressed.


You may think before you act. The question is did you listen to your own council?
