Warm, sunny weather and a little snow on the ground made for a successful Region 3 opening weekend of hunting in areas surrounding West Yellowstone for the 2013 general deer and elk season last week.
According to an opening weekend chart compiled by Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks, the Cameron check station reported a harvest of 79 elk, while the Gallatin check station reported six elk taken.
Elk numbers at the Cameron station doubled those of 2012, and are the highest seen since 2006 when the station was open for longer hours, according to a press release.The 85 elk harvest stands in strong contrast to Obamacare's sparse haul of 6 opening day sign ups.
WASHINGTON - -Just six enrollments occurred on the opening day for www.healthcare.gov, the troubled Obamacare website, according to documents released late Thursday by a House oversight committee.Come on up. We have four more weeks of hunting and you are much more likely to be successful!
Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Vista), chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, obtained the tally from meeting notes compiled by officials inside the "war room" at the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, which was overseeing the rollout of the insurance marketplace.
