Man killed by bear believed to be missing Utah man (posted 9/15/14)
Man killed by bear believed to be missing Utah man
Wyoming Game and Fish
Investigators with the Wyoming Game and Fish Department have been and continue to assist the Fremont County Coroner and Fremont County Sheriff’s Office in the investigation of the death of a man in the mountains above Dubois, thought to be a missing Utah man. The man had not been heard from since September 5th, and Fremont County Search and Rescue crews discovered what were believed to be the remains of the individual on September 12th. Department investigators were requested to assist after multiple bear tracks were observed at the scene.

Lander Regional Wildlife Supervisor Jason Hunter stated, "we will continue to do everything within our means to assist in the investigation and to ensure public safety. We would like to express our deepest condolences to the family and friends of the victim."

Fremont County Coroner Ed McAuslan indicated the pathologist’s preliminary report stated the individual suffered blunt force trauma from a probable bear bite. The Department, Fremont County Sheriff’s Office and Fremont County Coroner collected evidence from the scene that is currently being analyzed in an attempt to determine species and gender of the animals involved in the attack.

Hunter indicated there are high densities of grizzly and black bears in the drainage where the body was found and there were tracks and sign of multiple bears in close proximity to the remains. The victims’ remains were found adjacent to two deer carcasses bears had been feeding on.

Game and Fish will be providing further information as it becomes available and the incident remains under investigation. Further inquiries can be directed to the Lander Regional Wildlife Supervisor Jason Hunter at (307) 332-2688.


Deadline approaches to purchase preference points (posted 9/15/14)
For big game hunting licenses
Wyoming Game & Fish
Hunters looking to improve their drawing odds in hard to get areas for some big game licenses are reminded that the deadline to purchase preference points is September 30. Wyoming has a special application period from July 1 to Sept. 30 when hunters can purchase preference points.

Preference points are available for moose and bighorn sheep and for nonresident elk, deer, and antelope. Wyoming law requires hunters to apply for a license involving preference points or to purchase preference points at least every other year to maintain their point totals. If a hunter fails to apply for a license with preference points, purchase a preference point, or to apply for a license with the preference point option for two consecutive years, all accumulated preference points for that species will be deleted.

Applications for preference points are accepted online. Printed forms for purchasing points through the mail are no longer available. As with any Game and Fish deadline, applications must be received by 5 p.m. on the deadline date. Hunters who wait until after 5 p.m. on September 30 will find the system will no longer accept applications. Preference points can be purchased online by accessing the Game and Fish website wgfd.wyo.gov. Hunters should make sure they are applying using their correct sportsperson identification number. Hunters unsure of their number can check with the Game and Fish at 307-777-4600 to verify the accuracy of their sportsperson identification number.

Preference points are updated after each year’s deadline. Hunters can check their preference point balances on the Game and Fish website after mid-November.


2014 Elk, deer, pronghorn hunting season forecast (posted 9/13/14)
For Sublette County area
Wyoming Game & Fish
Hunters can expect fair to excellent hunting for elk, deer and antelope this hunting season depending on hunt areas and weather conditions during the high hunter activity periods of the hunts. The following forecast gives hunters an idea of what they can expect during the upcoming hunting season.

PINEDALE REGION
ANTELOPE

Population estimates for the northern portions of the Sublette pronghorn herd (hunt areas 87-90) are slightly below desired levels. Lower elevation sagebrush communities throughout the region are in very poor condition due to consecutive years of drought. However, forage production improved during 2014 following periodic rainfall during the growing season. With the more abundant forage and available water, pronghorn remain scattered throughout much of the area and sportsmen can expect to see a good number of bucks dispersed throughout the hunt areas. Observations from this summer’s surveys, indicate adult mortality during the winter of 2013-14 was "below normal" on most winter range complexes in the Pinedale Region.

DEER
The Sublette and Wyoming Range deer herds are two large populations with special management strategies designed to provide high quality hunting opportunities, older age-class deer, and high buck-to-doe ratios. Hunting conditions should be good this fall. Seasons in all regional hunt areas have been designed to increase deer numbers and reduce buck harvest below the 5-year average. To accomplish these goals, a standardized closing date (October 7th) for all general license hunting seasons in the Sublette herd unit was implemented in attempts to spread out hunting pressure. In addition, nonresident quotas for Region H will remain at 800 licenses.

ELK
The Sublette and Wyoming Range deer herds are two large populations with special management strategies designed to provide high quality hunting opportunities, older age-class deer, and high buck-to-doe ratios. Hunting conditions should be good this fall. Hunting seasons in all regional hunt areas have been designed to increase overall deer numbers and reduce buck harvest below the five year average. To accomplish these goals, a standardized closing date (Oct. 6) for all general license hunting seasons in the Sublette herd unit was implemented in attempts to spread out hunting pressure. Liberal seasons have been in place for several years and are designed to move populations toward post hunting season objective levels while maintaining at least 20 bulls per 100 cows in post-hunt populations. Elk numbers in the Pinedale herd remain near the upper limits of the post season trend objective despite increased hunter success and improved overall harvest in 2013. For the Upper Green River herd, sportsmen can anticipate good hunting conditions during the 2014 hunting season. This herd remains near the upper limits of the post season trend objective of 2,500 animals and similar to the 2013 hunting season.

Additional information on hunting season forecasts for 2013 can be found on the Game and Fish website wgfd.wyo.gov.


Wyoming Game & Fish to be featured on Animal Planet (posted 9/13/14)
TV show on wildlife management and wildlife law enforcement activities
Wyoming Game & Fish
The Wyoming Game and Fish Department will be working with the Animal Planet television network this fall on a pilot program featuring Wyoming game wardens and other Game and Fish personnel as they conduct their wildlife law enforcement and wildlife management activities throughout Wyoming.

Initially the program, titled, "Back Country Wyoming," will focus on the day-to-day duties of game wardens. If the pilot evolves into something more, it will feature many more of the various activities of Game and Fish personnel ranging from aerial and ground wildlife surveys, monitoring and tracking radio collared animals, techniques used in wildlife management, watercraft safety patrols and forensic science techniques used in wildlife law enforcement. The pilot program air date is yet to be determined.

Hunters in the field are advised they may encounter film crews this fall with some of Wyoming’s game wardens as Animal Planet films various check station, wildlife management and enforcement activities.

Chief Game Warden Brian Nesvik said he anticipates the program will make the public more aware of the importance of the wildlife resource in Wyoming and the Department’s efforts to conserve wildlife for future generations. "This pilot project definitely has the potential to further inform wildlife constituents about who we are and what we do," Nesvik said.

"Back Country Wyoming" is being produced for Animal Planet by Al Roker Entertainment Inc. and Quinn Wells Entertainment Inc. The Animal Planet television network is available in more than 94 million homes in the United States.


Another cattle-killing grizzly bear relocated from Upper Green (posted 9/12/14)
Wyoming Game and Fish
The Wyoming Game and Fish Department trapped and relocated an adult male grizzly bear September 8, 2014.

The bear was captured for killing livestock on a U.S. Forest Service grazing allotment north of Pinedale, Wyoming. In cooperation with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Shoshone National Forest, the bear was relocated to the Fox Creek drainage of the Clarks Fork River approximately 15 miles northwest of Crandall, Wyoming. The release site is located in currently occupied grizzly bear habitat.

Grizzly bear relocation is a management tool afforded bear management personnel to minimize conflicts between humans and grizzlies. The decision to relocate and the selection of a relocation site is made taking into consideration the age, sex, and type of conflict the bear was involved in. Since grizzly bears are listed as "Threatened" under the Endangered Species Act, consultation with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the appropriate land management agency is also made to minimize the chance of future conflicts and maximize the survival potential of the relocated grizzlies. Bears are relocated in accordance with federal law and regulation. When selecting a relocation site, the department makes every consideration to minimize potential conflicts with livestock and people.

Bears can create conflicts after they have obtained food rewards. The department continues to stress the importance of keeping all attractants (food items, horse feeds, bird seed, and others) unavailable to bears. Reducing attractants reduces human-bear conflicts.

Another scam to watch out for: Envelope-stuffing scheme (posted 9/5/14)
Sweetwater County Sheriff’s Office
A scam that dates back nearly 90 years is circulating locally, the Sweetwater County Sheriff’s Office warned today (Friday, Sept. 5).

Sheriff Rich Haskell said his office has received several reports from county residents victimized by the "envelope stuffing scheme."

Haskell said prospective victims receive a letter via conventional mail or email offering potential earnings thousands of dollars weekly "from the comfort of your home" for stuffing envelopes at the rate of $5.00 to $10.00 per envelope.

The sting strikes when the victim is asked to send the company money - in the latest version of the scam, $299 - for a "one-time computer processing and materials processing fee," which will be "returned later" but never is.

The organization sending out the latest letters, which calls itself Mason Grace Enterprises of New York City, has been the subject of Internet warning notices from the Better Business Bureau and the Consumer Business Alliance.

Haskell said the envelope stuffing scam dates back to the early days of the Great Depression, when people would receive offers of envelope-stuffing, at-home employment after a fee of $2.00 or so was sent to the scammers. "People were desperate then and often jumped at the chance, so the con was frequently successful. $2.00 went a lot farther then than it does now; the only difference is that inflation has multiplied many times what the scammers ask for."

Officials recommend that people exercise extreme caution when considering any work-at-home offer or communication, regardless of how they receive it.


Sheriff’s Office warns of phone scammers (posted 9/5/14)
Sublette County Sheriff’s Office media release
The Sublette County Sheriff’s Office has received several calls this morning (Friday, Sept. 5) regarding phone scams. Scammers have been calling utility customers around Sublette County claiming to be from Rocky Mountain Power. They tell customers they are behind on paying their electric bill and that if they do not make an immediate payment their power will be shut off. Some cases the caller has known details such as the amount of a power bill, and a check number.

The Sublette County Sheriff’s office warns residents about these phone calls. Should you receive one of these calls, just hang up the phone, and notify the Sheriff’s office. One of the phone numbers the scammer uses is 1-800-877-0109; should you have caller ID. More information can be found at the following websites:

Public warned of phone scam targeting utility customers (posted 9/5/14)
Pinedale Online!
Editor’s Note: We are reprinting a media release by Rocky Mountain Power warning customers about scammers who are calling and telling customers their electricity accounts are delinquent and their power will be turned off if they don’t immediately pay a certain amount of money to avoid disconnection. The folks at Sublette Center reported they got such a call this morning and it was very convincing. The telephone number associated with the scam was 1-800-877-0109 (Although caller ID phone numbers can now easily be spoofed, a quick online search finds multiple reports of electric bill scam phone calls from this phone number). Rocky Mountain Power employees will not call to demand immediate payment over the phone and do not ask for credit card information or pre-paid card numbers. If you receive such a phone call, do not give out any personal or account information. Hang up and report the call to the Sheriff’s office (and warn your circle of friends).

Rocky Mountain Power customers warned of phone scam
January 31, 2014

Rocky Mountain Power is once again warning customers about ongoing phone scams targeting utility customers, where crooks posing as customer service agents try to steal money and personal information.

Scammers have called residents and businesses across the country, claiming to be from their electric company. They tell potential victims they are late on their power bill and will be disconnected unless they make a payment right away. The caller typically advises the customer to make a payment either immediately on the phone, by calling a special number or by going to a local store to purchase a pre-paid card and calling back with the code.

A recent phone scam attempt in Rawlins, Wyoming was especially concerning. Instead of demanding payment over the phone, the scammer requested an in-person meeting at a Rocky Mountain Power pay station to receive a cash payment.

Customers should be aware these are NOT legitimate requests and Rocky Mountain Power does NOT follow these practices.

Rocky Mountain Power employees will not call to demand immediate payment over the phone and do not ask for credit card information or pre-paid card numbers. Employees also will not attempt to meet with customers in person to collect cash payments.

If Rocky Mountain Power contacts a customer, the representative will always have the customer’s account number. Even then, it is always appropriate to let the caller know you prefer to call them back at the company’s published customer service number. Rocky Mountain Power can be reached any time, toll free at 1-888-221-7070.

"We want our customers to know these are fraudulent calls and do not come from Rocky Mountain Power," said Leslie Blythe, customer and community manager. "If someone claiming to be with our company calls to demand payment either on the phone or in person, or makes other suspicious comments, simply hang up and call back at our published customer service number."

Customers should never provide unsolicited callers or visitors with credit card numbers or any other information that may compromise their financial security. Switching to paperless billing also provides more security by avoiding potential theft of utility bills from the mail box or trash can. Customers can sign up for paperless billing online at rockymountainpower.net or by calling 1-888-221-7070.

Any customer receiving suspicious calls or other forms of contact regarding their electric bill are encouraged to pay close attention to any information – such as the phone number they are asked to call, the number that appears on caller ID, an address where they’re told to send money, or even vehicle license plate numbers. They should then report the incident to local police and Rocky Mountain Power.

Bridger-Teton plans fall prescribed burn (posted 9/4/14)
In the Cottonwood Creek area of the Wyoming Range
Bridger-Teton National Forest
BIG PINEY – The Bridger-Teton National Forest plans to conduct a prescribed burn in the Cottonwood area of the Big Piney Ranger District this fall.

The Cottonwood II prescribed burn is located approximately 20-miles west of Daniel, WY in the North and South Cottonwood drainages and on Bare Pass near Red Castles. The project consists of several units totaling 1,093 acres. Fifty acres were successfully treated with fire earlier in this spring and 120 acres previously. Teton Interagency Fire Managers are hoping to burn several units for a total of over 500 acres this fall.

Fire managers plan to begin ignition in mid-September to mid-October. Actual ignition will be dependent on meeting strict parameters for weather and fire behavior conditions. Forest users may experience temporary smoky conditions in the vicinity of the project area and hazards associated with fire will be present inside and adjacent to the burn units. Interagency fire managers will attempt to minimize any adverse impacts as the burn proceeds.

The primary objective of the burn is to increase aspen regeneration and reduce encroaching conifer. "Fire is a very good tool to help bring back these aspen stands, said Paul Hutta, Fire Management Officer for the East Zone of the Bridger-Teton NF. Aspen are shade intolerant and removing the overstory of conifers will allow suckering to occur." Additional benefits will be to increase forage conditions for wildlife habitat and reduce hazardous fuels build-up while restoring fire-adaptive ecosystems.

This vegetation treatment is an interagency cooperative effort with Bureau of Land Management, Wyoming Game & Fish Department, Sublette County Fire, and Teton Interagency Fire.

For more information about this project, contact the Big Piney Ranger District at 307-276-3375 or visit www.tetonfires.com.


Granite Hot Springs to close temporarily for pool resurfacing (posted 9/3/14)
Starting Sept. 9th and lasting about 2 weeks
Bridger-Teton National Forest
The Granite Creek Hot Springs Pool will be temporarily closed next week to complete re-surfacing of the pool. The closure will begin Tuesday, September 9, 2014 and is expected to last up to two weeks.

"Re-surfacing the pool is necessary to repair the chipped and cracked surface," Linda Merigliano, Jackson District recreation staff said. "The current plaster surface has out-lived its expected life and must be replaced."

In order for the plaster to cure properly, the project needs to be completed before November, when temperatures will be too cold.

The hot springs pool is located on the Bridger-Teton National Forest, about 40 minutes south of Jackson at the end of Granite Creek road. Signs will be posted at the pool and at the beginning of the Granite Creek road. As the project progresses the BTNF website, www.fs.usda.gov/btnf, will have the most up-to-date information. Please check the status of the pool before planning a trip to the hot springs.

Contract crews will be mobilizing on September 8, visitors that day should expect to see machinery in the area. Please check the website or call the district at 307-739-5400.

Grizzly Bear relocated from north of Pinedale (posted 8/28/14)
Adult male bear killing livestock
Wyoming Game & Fish
The Wyoming Game and Fish Department trapped and relocated an adult male grizzly bear August 27, 2014.

The bear was captured for killing livestock on a U.S. Forest Service grazing allotment north of Pinedale, Wyoming. In cooperation with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Shoshone National Forest, the bear was relocated to the Mormon Creek drainage approximately five miles from the east entrance of Yellowstone National Park within the North Fork of the Shoshone River drainage west of Cody. The release site is located in currently occupied grizzly bear habitat.

Grizzly bear relocation is a management tool afforded bear management personnel to minimize conflicts between humans and grizzlies. The decision to relocate and the selection of a relocation site is made taking into consideration the age, sex, and type of conflict the bear was involved in. Since grizzly bears are listed as "Threatened" under the Endangered Species Act, consultation with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the appropriate land management agency is also made to minimize the chance of future conflicts and maximize the survival potential of the relocated grizzlies. Bears are relocated in accordance with federal law and regulation. When selecting a relocation site, the department makes every consideration to minimize potential conflicts with livestock and people.

Bears can create conflicts after they have obtained food rewards. The department continues to stress the importance of keeping all attractants (food items, horse feeds, bird seed, and others) unavailable to bears. Reducing attractants reduces human-bear conflicts.
