On July 16, two hours before the midnight deadline to apply for a Wyoming grizzly hunt tag, Kelly Mayor signed up with the “Shoot’em With A Camera” campaign to legally hunt the grizzly with a camera.
After following our campaign since day one, she was confident that her hunt fee and necessary expenses would be covered, never knowing that within a total of 7,000 applicants she would win the #2 out of 22 tags.
Kelly’s family are subsistence hunters but would never trophy hunt a grizzly. She’s a qualified candidate, has paid the $607 hunt fee, and is ready to get out in the field for the 10 day allotted time to Shoot’em With A Camera. Thank you Kelly!
There is a possibility that the grizzly trophy hunt may end before it begins. The final arguments in the lawsuits opposing de-listing of the Grizzly Bear from ESA protection filed by numerous NGO’s for wildlife conservation will be heard by the Federal Court Judge in Missoula, Montana at 9:00 a.m. on August 30, 2018. This lawsuit is pivotal. The judge may rule to re-list the Grizzly Bear and there will be no trophy hunt in Wyoming. If this ruling does not favor the grizzly, we will be ready to get out in the field for 10 days of hunting with a camera. Please see our take-action: shootemwithacamera.com/take-action/
