    I voted but could not view the results. Also, I couldn’t tell if my vote was submitted.

    Do you really think that powers that be could care a less about this vote. I think these bozo’s should be thrown outta office and then a high priced lawyer come in with lawsuits so big that Montana think twice about mistreating such a majestic animal again.

    The lawyers aren’t high-priced, but they’re good as & on their way… As for throwing the bums outta office – It’s lookin’ like we might have to wait another generation or two …

    Brian, I appriciate all the hard work everyone does in the name of buffalo survival. I first got a look at the hazing two years ago, I stood on a bridge talking with a couple of very nice men working for the buffalo field campaign. They told me about all the work that was going on, I applaud each and everyone of them. I honestly don’t know how these people that carry on this work of hazing these beautiful creatures can sleep at night. I could easily get on my soap box over these crimes towards mother natures great creatures.
