    For the first time in 100 years, the livestock industry is forced to play “defense”. This is great and you’re right….”times are changing”. WWP has them wondering..”who the hell are these guys?”

  4. william huard says:

    legal expertise, truth and the facts are a good combination.

  5. Elk275 says:

    Anything to do with the “new” outfitting business, I am cautious.

  6. Robert Hoskins says:

    The best offense is a good offense. Kudos to WWP-Montana for both this lawsuit and the bison lawsuit. Tom and Summer are very busy people.

    This will be interesting to see the outcome of. Is there any land Maggots in that location?

  8. hilljack says:

    Some of those ranchers are probably doing a great job and possibly improving areas but it only takes a few who don’t care about the land to do large amounts of damage and ruin it for others. Maybe they should try cutting the numbers first and see how that does.

    I would also be cautious Elk.

‎"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."
