Lampricide treatments critical in Pennsylvania’s Erie streams as efforts continue to kill off invasive predator in Great Lakes

Efforts to kill sea lamprey larvae in Conneaut Creek in Pennsylvania were conducted in late April at the start of a six-month-long lampricide program slated for the entire Great Lakes.
Streams are being treated with chemical compounds that are selectively toxic to lampreys but pose “no unreasonable risk to the general human population or the environment,” according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and Health Canada Pest Management Regulatory Agency.
The program, which is managed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, began more than 50 years ago. Streams are treated every three to five years to kill multiple year classes.

Fish information flowing in for Pennsylvania agency with new “Notice of Stocking” regulation in effect

Before last year, Pennsylvania was the only state in the Northeast that didn’t require some form of documentation when individuals or entities wanted to stock fish in state waters. As a result, Fish & Boat Commission leaders lamented, they had no idea what was being put in where.
But a regulation approved by the commission’s board of directors last summer that went into effect Jan. 1 has made a huge difference, according to Timothy Schaeffer, agency executive director. It requires a “Notice of Stocking” to be filed with the commission prior to fish going into any water.

Calling bird to bird can change your turkey-hunting fortunes, which means knowing gobbler calls

It’s been many years since turkey-hunting legend Ray Eye blew my mind by saying that, of all the spring gobblers he calls in, maybe 60% come to investigate the sounds of another gobbler – this reality, during the only time of year gobblers come to the calling of hens.
You mean you don’t always call like a hen to bring in a springtime tom? Definitely not.

U.S. House votes to remove wolves from endangered list in 48 states

The U.S. House voted Tuesday to end federal protection for gray wolves, approving a bill that would remove them from the endangered species list across the lower 48 states.
A handful of Democrats joined with Republicans in passing the bill. The measure now goes to the Senate, but it appears doomed after the White House issued a statement Monday warning that the Biden administration opposes it. Congress shouldn’t play a role in determining whether a species has recovered, the statement said.
