Barker says, "I blew it."

Rocky Barker had predicted a day earlier that the plaintiffs in the case were not likely to get an injuction.

    Doug Honnold is a formidable advocate who opened strong in the first half hour but had no case at the end.
    The court room looked like an eighth grade dance; girls on the left side of the room boys on the right.

    I hold solid on my prediction …no temporary injunction.

    The left and it’s stakeholders were part of the 100 wolves in 3 recovery area for 3 years process from the onset.
    Too late now.

    Ms Williams for the State of Montana ,Siedman {NRA, SCI} Lee {SFW } and Bloomquist{MSGA , Mt. FBF and FOTNYEH } were absolutely brilliant.

    Honnold choked after they made their arguments.”

    OOPS… You’re not the only one who “blew it” Rocky!

    As for “Ms Williams for the State of Montana, Siedman (NRA, SCI) Lee (SFW) and Bloomquist (MSGA, Mt, FBF ) were absolutely brilliant.

    Well, brilliant is as brilliant does.
