For mediators World News headquarters in Bozeman Montana. This kells weaken review with Ryan Cow Kellyanne. Now here's cal if you've been following cowes week in review. You know all about the cat native to Hollywood the famous Mountain Lion P twenty two. Well P twenty two almost had a new competitor last week. Hollywood animal control was called by concerned citizens to wrangle a cervical cap. The serval spelled S. E. R. V. A. L. is native to Africa. Typically golden coat with black spots and stripes stands about two foot at the shoulder in can wait in anywhere from fifteen forty pounds. This cat has been gaining popularity as an exotic pet despite the fact that it is considered wild and therefore subject to several layers of regulation in most states not Texas. Of course the serval is not a species of concern population wise but considering its natural hunting ability it would be of major concern to just about any bird mammal or reptile. It ran into the serval in relation to its body size as the longest legs of any cat making an excellent jumper. They've been observed taking birds from nine feet out of the air as well as being proficient diggers. The spruce pets.com has this to say exercise needs. Hi playfulness High Energy. High intelligence high friendliness. Low Kid friendly pet friendly. Whoa sounds like a perfect Christmas gift for someone you hate. Honestly the descriptions of these cats as pets should start out with not by which is probably why it was found in the area that some referred to as Holly Weird in fact with the exception of their ability to jump and hunt their habits sound similar to Human Hollywood residents that make the news very attractive. They sleep during the day primarily active at night urinate on everything not necessarily picky eaters puke lot. Despite all of these complications people going all the way back to the Egyptians liked to keep the serval as pets in this case most likely they had just attempted to keep it as a pet breeders are found the US but the cats themselves are not considered domestic at risk of sounding like a broken record. We know what cats that we call domestic due to wildlife so let's leave their hyped up cousins alone and preferably in Africa this week. We're talking policy. Updates lake trout corrections in God's Grizzly bears but I. I'm going to tell you about my week all Stephen Allen Myself. Hit the road once again. This time to bemidji Minnesota home of the BEMIDJI lumberjacks and lumber. Jills the BEMIDJI state beavers and most importantly one the best college ducks unlimited chapters in the entire. Us survey but Michi state is only about sixty. Three hundred students and these college chapter volunteers are consistently a top college. Do you chapter. I noticed in two thousand eighteen. They beat out. Ole Miss Texas am Georgia southern Texas am had an enrollment of just under seventy thousand two thousand eighteen. We are talking some motivated students and it was a really cool thing to see and be a part of if you are. Currently in school go volunteer. Many conservation organizations like ducks unlimited backcountry hunters and Anglers Wildlife Society National Wild Turkey Federation pheasants forever and Trout Unlimited. Have College chapters. Just like with the non college versions you can meet. New People have common interests and hopefully different hunting and fishing spots all while doing some good for habitat wildlife and access BEMIDJI. Minnesota was impressive. In the fact that the area has a ton of hunting and fishing opportunity very outdoorsy place. Which in my mind coincides with a roughly forty five percent graduation rate at Bemidji State University. At least it would have remained anyway aside from talk and conservation with a bunch of interesting dedicated folks. I got get out on the ice for some fishing which is much different than hard water fishing here in Montana. Major difference in this neck of the woods is it is very very common. Derive your full size vehicle out onto the ice in fact to jump back to. Bs You info when Bemidji Lake freezes over students park on the ice in order to bypass the parking fees on campus. Communal roads are plowed out on the ice. Ice Shacks. That range from your insulated quick to set up eskimo pop up shelters to full blown cabins complete with showers ovens. Tv's and convenient hole. In the Florida fish through are deposited off of these roads and basically lived in for the season. Wall is the kingfisher on those pirates but being as wall. I were just barely out of season. We did some fishing for fish of many names. The Berber laying lawyer Cask or as they call them consistently around Bemidji. E O pout or pouts as in. We're GONNA go pound some tonight. The consistent by is often at dusk in into the night the crew I was with said they rarely are on ice longer than eleven thirty PM. But just so you know the two recent State Record. Burbot were caught at four thirty. Am and eleven. Thirty am as. I remember. Guess THE POW. Like to hit on the half hour as well. The POW has a single Chan whisker or Which is where it gets the name. Bourbon cold water is key for the POUT. In fact some estimates say that for juvenile fish temperatures above fifty. Four degrees are intolerable. Burbot liver is huge in comparison to the size of the fish roughly ten percent of the fishes masses liver it is tasty and full of Fat. So if you're into catching these good lookin fish. Don't throw that delicious. Bid Away. The World Record Rod and Reel Burbot comes out of a lake called different bacher but some call it defend Baker in Saskatchewan. The Sketch Winberg came in at twenty five pounds. Two ounces biggest I ever personally seen was a little under seven pounds so I've got a ways to go but seven pounder is nothing to pout. About in other fishing news we were going to release the first ever cowes week in review video series. Were calling field reports. It could the last ever if you don't watch it so watch. This series is going to be live shortly on the meter youtube channel. Be on the lookout and let me think I like going to check out. Conservation story is an access stories. And I love telling you all about it so help me out and subscribe to the Meat Eater Youtube Channel. So this three episode series doesn't pass you by one of the episodes is in Tennessee. Where joined up with Tennessee? Wildlife Resources Agency to look at their invasive Asian carp situation I came home from that trip with a pile of silver and big head carp fillets I was working on her. Wonton raspy using this extremely neutral fish flesh and as I do from time to time made a mistake in my description on the old cal zero six instagram account. I described the two invasive carp I dealt with which again big head and silver carp as Zo. Plankton EATERS SPELLED Z. O. Plankton which they are but I went on to say that the plants which they do but Katie Dot Kobayashi. An aquatic zoologist as the correction. And you should listen to. Zooplankton are actually animals mostly tiny crustaceans by contrast phytoplankton are tiny plants in the sense that they produce their own energy. Both are plankton because they are small. Pelagics free-floating organisms the roots Zo Zeo and Fido P. H. Y. T. O. distinguish between animal and plant respectively. Thank you to Katie. For sent me straight and you should eat Asian carp as a tasty side note. Do anything you want to knowing that you are eating an invasive species that can consume five to forty percent of its own bodyweight every day according to the US Fish and Wildlife Service. Also a fun side. I got a lot of feedback on my carp cook and playlist instead of answering a bunch of messages. You can find that playlist on spotify. It is called storytellers. And as far as I know my account name is Ryan Michael Callahan. In telling you that I have just raised all hopes of anonymity so appreciate it and last on the public service announcement update list. John writes in with a really cool veterans and veterans dependence program in well-timed as sign up closes March fifteen. It is called heroes and hives. Which teaches beekeeping. You can help out the great big food web by proliferating pollinators heroes and hives conducted by Michigan State University. Being as I was brought up a notre dame fan. I'll say if you can't find this program at Notre Dame the second best thing would be to check out the program at MSU onto the news. The New Hampshire State Record Lake Trout was recently hauled out. The ICE shattering a sixty two year old record. The fish itself is estimated to have been fifty sixty years old. Which believe it or not isn't entirely uncommon? I do find interesting that this new state record was possibly swimming around when the last eight record was got lake. Trout aren't actually trout. They are a char just like the other char. We call trout such as Brookies and bull trout. Why we do this. We like simplicity. I guess and Char- sounds like officia. Pirate would catch jar. Lake.
