Those were game and fish studies, which in Wyoming means paid for entirely by sportsman’s dollars. What is not to get about the native vs non-native? Goats are there because we moved them to the area. Sheep were here when we got here.I have learned that studies and data can easily be interpreted however the entity funding the research would like it to be. There are too many variables. I realize it's the best option to gather information we currently have, unfortunately.
Even sheep were not native at some point. I don't buy the native vs not native argument. Interesting discussion though. Someone will always be disappointed.
Buzzh nailed it on the head I think.
This may show my ignorance and misunderstanding of the subject, but why would high $$ sheep guys care about sheep they can't hunt in a NP?
The elk management plan seemed super controversial there, but I don't see that happening with this.
