"It does somewhat concern us if the Park Service is going to do it in Yellowstone and we can't get this hunt to work down here, the Park Service may have to do something like that down here," Gingery said. "It wouldn't be for five or 10 years."
Gingery and Jaggi are interested in reducing the bison population that wanders on both sides of the Gros Ventre River, which separates Grand Teton National Park and the National Elk Refuge. Current law allows hunting in the elk refuge, but not in the park.
Steve Kilpatrick, executive director of the Jackson based Wyoming Wildlife Federation, believes the wild bison population in the elk refuge should be controlled but he thinks more discussion is needed. Bison are smart, and once they hear gunshots, they run across the river into the safety of Grand Teton National Park.
"It's really started impacting the elk refuge," Gingery said. "The bison push the elk out of the way on the feed lines."
"Under the current law, you may shoot one bison per lifetime," Gingery said.
A recent Yellowstone biologist recommendation to reduce that 4,200 head herd by killing 450 animals wouldn't directly impact the herd that lives to the south.

The state's other bison herds are near Cody, which is small, and in Yellowstone National Park, which impacts Montana.

Cowboy Joe is right. In the four years that we have been hunting bison, they have become very wily. They must be on the forest service lands or on the refuge. Either hunt generally requires a 5 or 6 mile hike, which is fine. The problem is that the bison stay in Teton National Park which allows no bison hunting. Forest Service lands close down to all vehicle traffic on Dec 15, and the area around the refuge closes to all human entry on Dec 15. If the G ever expects to control this herd, Grand Teton is going to have to allow bison hunting, which will probably take an act of congress. Or the forest service is going to have to allow bison hunter access until the end of bison season. Cow bison tags should be discounted just as cow elk and doe deer are they want you to throw down big money for a tag, but the chances of cows being on refuge or forest service land during hunting season is low.

The herd population totals about 910, Gingery said.
However, Senate File 32, sponsored by the Travel, Recreation and Wildlife Interim Committee, proposes different fees: $480 for bulls and $250 for cows for residents; $3,000 for bulls and $1,500 for cows for nonresidents.
If something isn't done, the government may have to thin the bison population by shooting them, which has been done in Montana, Gingery said.
Reps. Keith Gingery, R Jackson, and Allen Jaggi, R Lyman, have sponsored House Bill 41, which would allow people to hunt female bison, called cows, once every five years.
That is, if two legislators get their way.
Male bison, called bulls, wouldn't be killed. Hunters can spot the difference between the sexes, Gingery said.

Wyoming lawmaker proposes increased hunting of female bison
to $1,000, down from $2,500. The resident fee would remain at $400 for bulls and cows.
There is a limit to the number of hunters who can be allowed inside the elk refuge.
YOU SHOUTED YOUR COMMENT IN ALL CAPS. This is hard to read and annoys readers.
That once in a lifetime experience of hunting a wild bison in Wyoming may become a once every five years experience.
"I may match their recommendation," Gingery said. "I may do an amendment once we Nike Cortez Red White Blue Forrest Gump get into session."
If your comment was not approved, perhaps.
Elk refuge biologist Eric Cole said he hadn't seen the bill and didn't have an opinion yet.

"It isn't like when the bison come we can dump hundreds of people in the field and hunt them," he said. "We have a safety issue. You have an ethical and fair chase issue."
