Hunting Report for March 23, 2012 / ODFW

THE SHOW MUST GO ON: Despite the harsh weather, wild turkeys are getting spring urges.

Perhaps more so than any other game bird, pre-season scouting for wild turkeys can greatly improve hunter success. April 15 is the opening of the general turkey season in Oregon. JIM WARD photo

BILLINGS, Mont.  — A   federal appeals court on Wednesday rejected a lawsuit from conservation groups that want to block wolf hunting and trapping that have killed more than 500 of the predators across the Northern Rockies in recent months.

Some people have tunnel vision.  Of course, that can really limit one’s point-of-view, unless you’re talking about burrowing owls.

Burrowing owls are a dove-sized raptor. They prefer arid, sagebrush-scrub and grassland areas and, as their name implies, live in burrows. They don’t make the burrows themselves, but move into abandoned badger and ground squirrel holes.

Forest Service biologist shares insight about wolverines in Eagle Cap Wilderness

A wolverine reaches up to eat part of a deer carcass at a trail camera station in the Eagle Cap Wilderness last winter. Wolverines may have been living in Wallowa County for years but had not been detected until recently.

The connection is both intriguing and illuminating. 

Wolverines and mountain goats appear to be linked. The connection is drawing increased interest from   Northeast Oregon residents since it recently has been established that  wolverines are living in Wallowa County.
