I was talking to a buddy last night and he brought up a subject about Gardner. He went on to say did you hear about Gardner and the backcountry, I said no, thinking he was going to tell me about the wolves or grizzly bears that they have seen while guiding hunters. He said the fish and game is proposing a huge tag drop to try to increase the number of elk. To be exact they want to drop the tags from 1260 to 75! Now anyone who knows anything about elk hunting in Montana knows about Gardner and the backcountry area around it. That same person also might know that the Northern yellowstone elk herd that use to thrive there was over 20k strong before the wolf introduction. Now it's less that 3k! If the fish and game shuts down tags around Gardner it would totally kill that town and put lots of family's out of work whether it's outfitting or the local business. My buddy asked me to past it along to every hunter I know and ask them to stand up and show there support. Fi Don't let the fish and game shut down Gardner! Instead they need to take a look at their bullshit wolf quotas around that area and take more of them things out! Please pass this issue along folks to anyone you know that's an elk hunter!
