The hunting season closure was quickly quashed by the commission. But the problems that led to the proposal are only getting worse. "You've got an 80% reduction in sage grouse numbers in the Powder River Basin, with 20,000 more wells still to be developed there. A 47% reduction on the Pinedale Anticline, 36% reduction on the Jonah Field. We're looking at 10,000 more wells in the next decade, plus the development of the Prospect Mountains area, which is fantastic mule deer country, lots of sage grouse, and pretty virgin territory. You have to ask yourself, what's the plan? Mule deer numbers down 60% on the Anticline, so we're going to just shut down the deer hunting? Really? When does this end?"
