Isle Royale to get 20-30 new wolves under park service plan

Isle Royale’s decimated wolf population will get a lifesaving infusion of 20 to 30 new wolves over the next three years under a National Park Service plan published Friday in the Federal Register.

The Park Service published its final environmental impact statement after studying the potential of wolf reintroduction for two years and deciding on bringing in new wolves over other options, including doing nothing.

Park Service officials now must wait for 30 days before a “record of decision” is published and details of the relocation plan can be released, said Liz Valencia, chief of interpretation and cultural resources for Isle Royale National Park.

The final environmental impact statement comes more than a year after Isle Royale National Park officials reached the conclusion that the wolf transplant was the best and only option to keep a viable predator population on the island. But it took more than 15 months for the efforts of the environmental impact statement to clear the agency’s hierarchy.

As of January there were only two wolves remaining on the island as the wolf population has been slowly declining due to inbreeding and genetic deformities.

Scientists with Michigan Technological University, who have been studying the island’s wolf and moose populations for 59 years, have said for years that the wolves need new blood or they face extinction. The last two wolves are father and daughter and when they have mated their pups have not survived.

Some people had suggested that the Park Service stay out of the situation and let the island’s wolves run their course, saying the definition of federal wilderness is an area not impacted by human action. But others say the problems wolves face – including vastly diminished Lake Superior ice cover due to climate change, which makes it less likely for new wolves to come to the island – show humans already are having an impact.

The 45-mile-long, 143,000-acre island is located about 15 miles off Minnesota’s North Shore.

Wolves are relatively new to the island, having crossed the ice in the 1940s. Their numbers reached a high of 50 in 1980, and 24 wolves roamed the island as recently as 2009. But no new wolves have crossed ice to the island in many years.

Moose came to the island much earlier in the 1900s, peaking at 2,445 in 1995 and hitting bottom at just 385 in 2007. In their annual survey last winter scientists estimated the moose herd had grown to 1,600 on the island.

Results of this winter’s survey, due in coming weeks, are expected to show 2,000 or more moose now on the island. Without more wolves, scientists say, the moose will continue to increase and cause environmental damage across the island and will begin to starve to death.

The Humane Society of the U.S., an animal welfare group, was first to weigh-in Friday supporting the Park Service decision.

“With the loss of Isle Royale’s ice bridges due to climate change, wolves could not reach the island. This spelled disaster not only for the park’s environmental health, but doomed its overabundant moose population to slow, cruel starvation,” said Nicole Paquette, vice president of wildlife at The Humane Society of the United States. “The two wolves left on the island are too inbred to successfully reproduce; it’s been heartbreaking to witness the harm that lack of genetic diversity has caused on Isle Royale.”

In the draft environmental study the Park Service says it will look to capture Great Lakes wolves that are known to feed on moose as one of their prey sources, are in good health with no apparent injuries and have the appropriate genetic diversity to sustain a viable population on the island.

Capture and relocation efforts would take place between late fall and late winter. Relocated wolves will be fitted with radio or GPS collars so they can be tracked.

Wolves may be supplemented as needed up to the third year after initial introduction. After the third year, should an unforeseen event occur that impacts the wolf population, such as a mass die-off or introduction of disease, additional wolves may be supplemented for an additional two years. No additional wolves would be brought to the island after five years from first relocation.

Which mid layer piece for under Fanatic Jacket? #archery

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

All,
I just purchased the Fanatic Jacket and bibs (not the fanatic lite). My goal is to have a system which I can wear from late October into mid November (temps from 40F-mid 20s). I do get slightly colder than most and have been known to wear heavier stuff than my friends. I would like to purchase a mid layer. My options are things like the Celsius shacket, the celcius jacket, the Fanatic hoody or the fanatic vest. I purchased a xxl Fanatic Jacket and bibs in order to have some room to layer. As an FYI I am not worried about bulk in the arms as by the time it is that cold I am no longer using a bow which is why I’m highly considering the Fanatic Hoody or the Celsius Jacket which will give me an additional outside piece if I would like to use them as that. thoughts?

UA Under Armor Ops Hunter Boot/Shoe. Any good?

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

UA Ops Hunter.jpgAnyone use these? These appear to be off the spring of when a gaiter and shoe spent sometime together. Looking for something water proof and light. I am sure it is water resistant but ideally want long term waterproof. If I walk through wet knee high grass or step in a mud puddle or cross a creek 10" deep will I get wet? How about, will I get wet a year later after using these 20 or 30 times? Dont need to stand fully submerged for 5 mins but if I walk across something wet I need to stay dry.

Sometimes things lose their waterproof effectiveness. At $ 250 I would like to know.

Lastly, says 22 oz. 22oz each or per pair? Hoping per pair.

Also saw these listed as Under Armour Ridge Reaper Ops Hunter. Ridge appear the same as the OPS Hunter. they are the same thing?

Same with Armour UA Ops Hunter 2.0 17" Uninsulated Waterproof Hunting Boots. I think these aren’t out yet and appear to have different tread pattern.

I am all about these for antelope in the rain and elk too.

Under Armour New Lineup?

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

I’ve been waiting to purchase new camo and have my mind set on under armor. I really liked the speed freak lineup, but noticed almost everywhere this lineup is on sale. I’m assuming this is a result of an upcoming new lineup (besides ridge reaper). Having just signed with the Drury Outdoors Team, I’m assuming they will stick with Mossy Oak Treestand, anyone heard anything about a new lineup?

I have just bought a Diamond Outlaw, and now im slightly regretting my purchase. I have read a LOT of threads and posts from various sites including this one of the exact same problem im experiencing. The draw stop (i think) is causing my serving to separate/split. Anyone out there have ideas to remedy this issue?
