Grizzly bears, black bears, wolves, coyotes, cougars/ mountain lions,bobcats, wolverines, lynx, foxes, fishers and martens are the suite of carnivores that originally inhabited North America after the Pleistocene extinctions. This site invites research, commentary, point/counterpoint on that suite of native animals (predator and prey) that inhabited The Americas circa 1500-at the initial point of European exploration and subsequent colonization. Landscape ecology, journal accounts of explorers and frontiersmen, genetic evaluations of museum animals, peer reviewed 20th and 21st century research on various aspects of our "Wild America" as well as subjective commentary from expert and layman alike. All of the above being revealed and discussed with the underlying goal of one day seeing our Continent rewilded.....Where big enough swaths of open space exist with connective corridors to other large forest, meadow, mountain, valley, prairie, desert and chaparral wildlands.....Thereby enabling all of our historic fauna, including man, to live in a sustainable and healthy environment. - Blogger Rick

I know that biologist John Laundre is shaking his head as he reads this article...........As he will tell you,,,,,,If you keep shooting Pumas into oblivion, eventually, fewer and fewer Cats there will be...................Is the South Dakota Game Commission that clueless that they put on a straight face and boldly tell us that there will not be 100 Pumas killed when the hunt closes down next week..................Guys, you are killing them faster than they can reproduce..............Put a lid on it!!!!!!

Mountain lion totals may fall short of season limit
There's one week left in the 2013 South Dakota mountain lion hunting season.
 It's looking more
 and more as if hunters will get nowhere near the total season limit of 100 lions
 specified by the
 state Game, Fish and Parks Commission.
Right now, the number of lions killed this season stands at fifty five. With only
seven days left,
hunters would have to bring down more than six big cats a day to reach the
100 lion limit.

GF&P big game
 biologist John Kanta says
that won't happen. Kanta
says, "Yeah. With only a
week left in the season,
 I don't believe that we'll make the limit of one hundred lions. Nor do
 I think we'll even harvest
 as many as we did last year."
This would be the first time since mountain lion hunting was
 re-introduced in 2005 that hunters
failed to bring in the limit before the end of the mountain lion
 hunting season.
