Maybe this Christmas the wife will bring me into the digital age of game cams, but if not, I'm am doing just fine with the ones I already have. The most important thing I have learned with the game cam is that location is everything. The time of year, and knowing animal travel patterns is the key to getting great photo pictures as well as great bow, muzzle loader, and rifle shots while hunting. So try many different spots and set-ups with your cam and you will find what works the best for your terrain and success. Most of all, have fun while you enjoy the great outdoors and our American wildlife. I'll put this as simply and bluntly as I can. If you have kids who enjoy animals and you pass through Louisiana without taking them to the Global Wildlife Center then you are an abusive parent who deserves to have your children taken away from you and raised by Republicans. Okay, so no kid deserves that fate, but I am serious: if you have a kid who loves animals then you really need to take them to the Global Wildlife Center in Folsom, Louisiana. My wife and I took our youngest son to the Global Wildlife Center for his birthday and I must say it was one incredible success. The Global Wildlife Center is essentially a massive savanna on which animals roam freely. This is not a zoo and you won't find a cage anywhere.

However, before any state can receive this funding they must have developed a "wildlife action plan" better known as the Comprehensive Wildlife Conservation Strategy, by October 1, 2005. A wildlife action plan assesses the wildlife and habitat health, identifies any problems the wildlife and habitat face and describes the actions needed to rectify the problems and conserve the wildlife and habitat in question. Congress has identified eight elements that each wildlife action plan is required to have, which will better aid in identifying the plans of action to take and why. These eight elements are: Information on the Distribution and Abundance of Species of Wildlife; Descriptions of Extent and Conditions of Habitats and Community Types; Descriptions of Problems and Priority Research and Survey Efforts; Descriptions of Conservation Actions; Proposed Plans for Monitoring Species Identified and Their Habitats; Description of Procedures to Review the Plan; Plans for Coordinating the Development, Implementation, Review and Revision of the Plan with Federal, State, Local Agencies and Indian Tribes; and Broad Public Participation. North Dakota had 70 aquatic and terrestrial wildlife species classified as wildlife species of greatest conservation need (GCN). Of these 70 GCN, 41 are birds, 7 are amphibians and reptiles, 6 are mammals, 10 are fish and 6 are mussels. Problems or threats to the GCN species populations in North Dakota are commercial and industrial development, landfill construction or operation, dams, road construction, urban development, water diversion, municipal and industrial point source, commercial harvest, conversion of riparian forests, excessive non-commercial harvest or collection, channel maintenance and confined animal operations. Other problems or threats to GCN species are crop production practices, excessive groundwater withdrawal, fire suppression, management of or for certain species, channel alteration, exotic species, parasites, pathogens, recreation, grazing, predation, forestry activities and resource extraction. The North Dakota Comprehensive Wildlife Conservation Strategy has addressed these problems or threats to the GCN species population with wildlife conservation actions. These wildlife conservation actions include decreasing the data gap by gathering more information on GCN species, by fire management with controlled burns and with habitat protection by initiating projects to protect existing key habitat or habitat components. Key habitat restoration and improvement by initiating projects to restore or enhance existing habitats and with land acquisition by purchasing land or conservation easement that is important to GCN species are also included in the North Dakota Comprehensive Wildlife Conservation Strategy.
