    This article is part of a continuing series of defensive bear shootings discovered through a Freedom of Information Act request by AmmoLand. It appears these events were not reported in other media. On September 13, 2011, two bowhunters were hunting for elk in a wild part of Wyoming, on the boundary of the Shoshone National Forest and the Bridger Teton National Forest. The location was on the Continental Divide between the Salt Creek and the South Fork of the Fish Creek drainages, about an hour north of DuNoir Junction, southwest of Dubois, Wyoming, near the boundary of Fremont County and...

    Republicans ostracized from the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) this weekend in Orlando, Florida, are staging their own counterprogramming in Washington, D.C., this weekend. The Republicans opposed to former President Donald Trump are gathering for the Principles First summit Saturday and Sunday, and the speakers list includes anti-Trump Reps. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., and Adam Kinzinger, R-Ill., the two GOP members who are skirting House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., to join House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's partisan Jan. 6 Select Committee. "Principles First is excited to announce a two-day grassroots summit at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., on Feb....

    This is another in a series of self-defense against bear events uncovered in a Freedom of Information Act request done by AmmoLand. It seems they have not been published before. On October 18, 2010, an elk hunter was successful in collecting a bull elk at the head of the North Crandall Creek drainage in Wyoming. It was late in the day, so they field-dressed the elk, moved the gut pile about 50 yards away, and left the elk to be retrieved the next day, with horses.On October 19, 2010, three men were on their way to retrieve the elk. Because...

    Wyoming Sen. Anthony Bouchard’s campaign for U.S. House experienced a stark drop in fundraising in the most recent quarter, according to newly released federal campaign finance data. In quarter three — which spans from July to September — the campaign raised $65,500. That’s compared to $213,000 in the second quarter and $334,500 in the first quarter. Bouchard’s campaign has roughly $87,000 left in the bank. The campaign has considerably less cash on hand than Bouchard’s opponents: Rep. Liz Cheney has almost $3,700,000 left in the bank, while Harriet Hageman, who received the coveted endorsement of former President Donald Trump, has...

    This is one of a series of detailed accounts of bear attacks found with Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests by AmmoLand. On September 7, 2010, a pair of archery hunters were stalking moose in a remote part of Wyoming near Pinedale. A large boar grizzly bear attacked them. Fortunately, they were able to shoot the bear and stop the attack. In the morning, one of their guides had been scouting the area. He had seen two bull moose and what he thought was a large black bear. When he told the hunters about the moose and the bear, the...

    As part of AmmoLand’s investigative journalism, a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request revealed this bear attack which happened in Wyoming, in 2010.On 14 August 2010, in the Union Pass area, on Forest Service Road 693 near Fish Creek in west-central Wyoming, a family group was camping. One of the children reported they had seen a dead calf near the creek.Two members of the group armed themselves to investigate. The creek was about 300 yards from the campsite. They were unsure if the calf were dead or merely sleeping. If the calf were dead, they would need to keep the...

    FreeRepublic ^ | July 30 | RandFan
    Came across this report from NewsmaxBasically he says while Cheney is widely despised back home in Wyoming and loses big head to head if all her challengers are on the ballot then she can survive by splitting the vote. This has got to be our worst nightmare?! I doubt all of her challengers will mount strong campaigns but no doubt she will help the weaker ones with some dirty tricks... Praying that Republicans in the state get behind just one of them - along with Trump - and force the others out. It's still very much early days....

    On the evening of 22 September 2005, a hunting guide and his hunter, who was from Ohio, were attacked without provocation, by a grizzly bear in the Shoshone National Forest in the northwest corner of Wyoming. The details of the attack were found in a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) response to AmmoLand. This correspondent has not found any other published account of this attack. The hunter had been drawn for an archery tag for elk, with his friends. The hunter had been assigned a guide by the licensed outfitter. On the morning of 22 September, the guide had decided...

    On the East Fork of the Wind River, near Lander, Wyoming, three bow hunters were walking to their hunting grounds, bows in hand. An old boar grizzly suddenly charged them from a few yards left of their approach. The bow hunters had set up base camp the day before at the East Fork trailhead. The next morning, they rode horses six miles up the trail, turned west, and rode uphill until the terrain was too steep for the horses. At about 7:30, they dismounted and continued up the steep slope of the trail on foot, in line.Wind River Peak from...

  • Liz Cheney Sent the Whole Republican Conference Amnesty Document Lifted Nearly Word-for-Word from Biden White House Docume

    House GOP conference chairwoman Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) sent a document to the whole House GOP conference in February against Democrat President Joe Biden’s amnesty plan which lifted at least a dozen passages nearly word-for-word from the Biden White House’s public “Fact Sheet” promoting the legislation. The revelations are significant for a number of reasons. First and foremost, Cheney was spreading material lifted directly from the Biden White House to the whole House GOP conference. Secondly, and perhaps even more importantly, Cheney was sending House Republicans what was supposed to be information to arm them to fight against Democrats’ and...

    Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney, the No. 3 House Republican, said on Monday her party cannot accept the "poison" of the idea that the 2020 election was stolen and should not "whitewash" the January 6 Capitol riot -- and Donald Trump's role in fomenting it. "We can't embrace the notion the election is stolen. It's a poison in the bloodstream of our democracy," Cheney said, speaking behind closed doors at a conference in Sea Island, Georgia. "We can't whitewash what happened on January 6 or perpetuate Trump's big lie. It is a threat to democracy. What he did on January 6...

    House Republican Conference Chair Liz Cheney’s (R-Wyo.) leadership position is on shaky ground, with a growing number of her GOP colleagues telling The Post that a second vote to oust her from her role may be inevitable. Three GOP lawmakers said a vote determining her fate in leadership could come as soon as next week during their first conference meeting back after recess.

    Wyoming is on the cusp of a needed improvement of their Constitutional Carry law. In 2011, Wyoming was only the third state to restore Constitutional Carry. Constitutional Carry is a close approximation of the state of law that existed when the Second Amendment was ratified in the United States, in 1791. At that time, there were no permits required to carry weapons in most public spaces, either openly or concealed.State governments and the Federal government did not impose legal burdens on the carry of weapons, openly or concealed, for two generations after the ratification of the Second Amendment.Gradual infringements on...

    Just The News ^ | Feb 1st | By John Solomon
    Republicans who have supported Donald Trump's impeachment from South Dakota to South Carolina are getting a painful reminder of just how powerful the former president remains within the Republican Party ranks. Rep. Tom Rice was the latest to feel the wrath of Trump supporters when the South Carolina state GOP voted to censure him this weekend for his vote two weeks ago supporting the House Democrats impeachment article. "Trying to impeach a president, with a week left in his term, is never legitimate and is nothing more than a political kick on the way out the door," state GOP Chairman...

    House GOP Conference Chairwoman Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) has seen her political support completely collapse in Wyoming as solid majorities of both Republicans and all voters in the state want her out of office, a new poll shows. What’s more, Cheney has fallen behind her primary challenger by more than double digits, a sharp turn in just weeks against the one-time rising star since she voted to impeach former President Donald Trump. The poll, conducted by Trump’s team and first reported by Politico, shows 73 percent of Republicans in ruby red Wyoming view her unfavorably—while 62 percent of all voters...
