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

Jackson Hole and adjacent Fall Creek Elk herds are at Wyoming biologist population goals...........Usually, those goals are bloated based on hunter, rancher and trapper pressure on 'State Game Commissions..............Wolves, Bears and Pumas----let them live and coexist with the elk as they have done since time immemorial..............All will live to see the next day!

Jackson Hole elk herd populations steady last year

In addition, biologists say the number of calves relative to the number of cows in the Jackson and Fall Creek elk herds also is up. The calf numbers are a key indication of future population growth.
Wyoming Game and Fish biologists counted 11,051 elk in the Jackson Elk Herd.
Biologist Doug Brimeyer said that the final count is closer to the Jackson herd's objective of 11,000 animals than in any other year since the number was set.
To the south of Jackson, the Fall Creek Elk Herd was near its objective of 4,400 animals.
