I consider this a natural treasure that we can’t give up. It’s essential that we keep the Tabby Block protected in public hands…
Regulated, responsible hunting is the driving force that maintains abundant wildlife. And I made the decision: I want to be part of that. But I don’t just want to tell the stories. I want to make my own.
The hunter that I grew up watching on videos, and the editor and author of Bowhunter magazine that my dad read religiously for years, was the friend that was going to be hunting the Book Cliffs this year with my dad and brother.
I do not consider myself to be a traditional hunter. I’m still the only one in my family to ever hunt, and I learned to shoot a gun in my first job out of undergrad as a wildlife technician. Since then, I have used firearms to euthanize a variety of species including deer, wild pig, […]

The first cutthroat entered the water on May 17. About 4,000 fish have been stocked so far this year, with 6,000 more to be stocked in the fall. As many as 20,000 additional cutthroat trout are expected to arrive over the next two years.

The details of the Pelitrack maps show unequivocally that the paths of pelicans predict water. On their seasonal journeys north and south, and during other wanderings, pelicans fly from water body to water body where they rest and refuel by cooperatively foraging for fish. Zoom in on any Pelitrack path and you will find lakes, reservoirs and rivers.
Caring for a tortoise is like having your own desert dinosaur in the backyard, and it might even outlive you!
