As stated above, this was not our range rider and there is no connection to CNW.


Thanks for the clarification that these range riders under investigation was WDFW's riders, paid for by WDFW and not CNW's riders. 


Not a fan of WDFW paying for this...CNW can do what they want with their money, if they spend it range riding good for them.

This might surprise you, but at this point, I fully agree. Wolves have recovered in northeast Washington, and WDFW has actual endangered or declining species to deal with. Funding for wolf conflict avoidance and removal should come from the Department of Agriculture, federal Wildlife Services, local ranches and any other organizations that choose to pitch in.

CNW currently spends $50,000 a grazing season supporting local ranches in wolf conflict avoidance, and helping them employ range riders. In past years that was approximately $80k a grazing season.

While other orgs are making headlines screaming bloody murder and filing lawsuits, we're spending serious money on the ground in Ferry, Stevens and Kittitas counties.

Well said, and I completely agree.

WDFW should be focusing on endangered and declining species for sure, such as mule deer, WT deer and elk...several species in decline. 

And maybe add grouse to that list, hearing a lot about turkey's and declining grouse.  Are they going to get ahead of that or wait until everyone's wondering where all the grouse went?

 :tup: Agreed they should take a active approach before there is nothing to protect. But as stated many times before folks don't believe there will ever be a control season in this state.
