Just finished a 12 day 60k holiday er... "bioinventory" with the local biologist and team of techys. Ive never seen such nonsense. I thought long and hard before posting this but hey they were using tax dollars and after all work for us.
We were using 14 dollar rat traps half of which didnt work. They insisted on trapping areas we knew were not good for voles or mice. I would go on a 4 hour hike every morning before they even got out of bed! Campfire talk was hard to listen too... hunters are the cause of all wildlife woes. I wont go on you get the idea. I would sooner go to the dentist than go through another trip like that.
So what did the public get out for their 60k?? how about 1 vole and 8 mice!! It was absolutly nothing more than a tax funded vacation for some govt. employees. There was no "science" involved just another waste of resources. Those on here that buy into every biologist report should spend some time in the field with them sometime. That funding could have been used for something worthwhile. How much of this nonsense goes on every year!!
