    Rumor is that there are no cattle on CUT property today. I assume this is related to some kind of deal with them.

    Buffaloed, I bet it’s more important than the CUT deal ~ “…will make a historic announcement about the Interagency Bison Management Plan…”

    Perhaps the governor and the super are pulling out of the plan…

    At 1:30PM tomorrow I’ll be scanning the ‘net.

    According to the KXMZ news clip alluded to in the BFC news release, it’s about the CUT deal. I have strong doubts that it will be anything more than that. The Montana livestock industry is already screaming, no doubt. The IBMP is the industry’s plan and I don’t see Schweitzer dumping it.

    I have come to expect “historic” in the government’s eyes to be teeny-weenie in most people’s.
    I will wait with hope, but I won’t hold my breath.
    I mean, ideally we’d like the herd to be able to range and not be slaughtered, but what could we expect, realistically?
    What should we dare to hope for? What would we find reasonable to settle upon? I doubt we’ll ever get 100% satisfaction. Figuring out what would be the minimum acceptable is probably the worst and hardest part.
    I’ll have my pc on, same as Mack.

    Mack, there is not a chance in hell that Montana is pulling out of the IBMP.

  6. avatar Mack P. Bray says:

    Buffaloed, maybe the gov and the super want to modify it. Maybe an agreement with CUT is in the works.

    We’ll see tomorrow…!

  7. Thanks for the announcement. We passed it out at our buffalo meeting tonight and think one or two people may be able to be at the event.

‎"At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “thus far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behaviour."
