I don't feel like the ODFW bio's have much to do with this proposal. It is the result of the way wildlife is managed in Oregon due to politics instead of science and I doubt the bio is happy about that. If the politicians hear from the ranchers there are too many elk the bios have little choice but to get rid of some elk. I could be wrong but that is my opinion anyhow. All the ODFW bios I know are great people who are doing the best they can.
