Future roo hunting all over North America .... ;)

Future Roo hunting opportunities ALL OVER North America ...

I hope these twits realise kangaroos are capable of massive population increases, there can be as many as 65 million of them in Australia at times, and also can travel very large distances in a day ...

First 90 Kangaroos released in Wyoming
Fabian Lobera Posted On April 1, 2017





(Dubois, Wyo) – The Wyoming Wild Game Department (WWGD) partnering with the Wyoming Migration Initiative (WMI) have released the first of 5 planned batches of 90 Antilopine Kangaroos into the Wyoming outdoors.

Dubbed “Project Sage Hopper” by the WWGD team responsible for evaluating the viability of Wyoming’s habitat for Australian marsupials, it has been in the planning stages for 3 years. The goal is two-fold: Create new and interesting wildlife viewing opportunities for tourists, and in several years, potentially provide additional hunting opportunities.

“Antilopine means ‘antelope-like, so we are interested to see how these kangeroos adapt to Wyoming’s wild landscapes,” WMI Director Matt Kauffman said. “If they start migrating, we’ll be tracking their movements, looking to see how they learn to exploit the sage steppe and the mountains, where they ‘hopover,’ those sorts of things.”
Wyoming Migration Initiative team welcomes the first wild kangaroo to touch down on Wyoming soil.


16 hour trans-Pacific flight for the jet-lagged kangaroo.

“This wasn’t an easy project; the international permitting in particular was a huge hassle. Identifying a species that would meet our goals and be able to thrive in Wyoming’s strongly seasonal habitat.” added Kauffman. “If we can get these Aussie macropods established and breeding, they are likely to thrive with continued climate change in Wyoming’s already semi-arid climate. Additionally, we believe with their large hind legs, they’ll be able to effectively defend themselves from coyotes, wolves and other predators. Trust me: You don’t want to be kicked by one of these animals.”

Even as they hope for the successful establishment of Wyoming’s newest large mammal, researchers aren’t giving up on the native big game that so many Wyomingite’s cherish. “Research is needed now more than ever to identify and map the critical habitats that migratory big game require,” Kauffman added.

With a successful introduction of kangaroos into Wyoming’s ecosystem, WMI will review other opportunities for the state to be home to other marsupial species. A short-list for future proposed introductions include the koala, wallaby and the endangered Tasmanian Devil.

Get a look at the migrations of Wyoming’s other big game species at migrationintiative.org.

Are you joking to NitroX, it is dated April 1 ?

I think Antilopine kangaroo is a Wallaroo or Euro & pic show Red Roo also !

MAN..at first I thought there is no way WYOMING would do that..if you lived here you would understand that..Wyoming is a awesome state full of conservatives, low populations, no state tax and great hunting...they were also the first state to start wolf hunting after they were re-introduced back in 1996...basically told the feds to f**k off...Love that state..

Have to admit I kinda wished it to be true,,how awesome would that be to smoke those guys with rifles at long distance...

A wolf pack if fast enough or in a surrounding position could easily kill a kangaroo. At full hop they could not catch it from behind. Dogs can kill a roo. Greyhounds are used to run them down. So a pack of wolves no problem Roos can kill dogs by ripping their stomachs open with their hind legs. Also can enter water and then drown a dog if it swims in after the roo, by pushing it under the water with its front legs.

There was or is a small Island off France that had a small population of wallabies

We have many types of Wallabies here in NZ from Oz that are considered pests & are/were being culled or wiped out on some of the Island especially, well one type was extinct in Australia & was exported back there to reestablish !

Most of the species here I have not even seen in Australia !

That Roo in the photo has photoshopped as well, I think I have seen that photo before & they were releasing a Big Horn sheep or some thing like that ?

G'Day Fella's,

If it was true, they would probably not survive their first Nth American Winter (even with GloBULL Warming on their side).
The Skippy in the image, appears to be a Female, Red Kangaroo.
If you wanted a sub species that May be capable of surviving a Winter, the Eastern Grey's we have around here, May be the ones?

Yes Ripp, Skippy's really are made for Long Range decking.
When they sit upright, you can be out a fair bit on your range estimation, and still get a clean kill.
Mind you, Brain shots (out to 150 meters), account for 99.9% of my tally so far.

Happy Easter you lot.

On a pig hunting trip where the roos were extremely wary I had a shot at the roos at 600 metres using a 7mm STW ... I mssed of course ...

Roos can be very wary, if hunted a lot. And see or sense you a long way away. Tried bow hunting them once, once they spotted me, they kept me at least at 60 to 90 metres away, if I got closer they hopped away. In close bush of course one could get within range unless spotted.

Most of the 3 to 4 million roos culled each year at shot at night with spotlights.

Where they aren't shot at all, like my own property, they aren't wary at all. Still keep a person 50 metres away or more.

Yes the reds are desert animals and probably would not cope with snows. Eastern mountain greys and mountain euro/wallaroos might do better.

Raccoons here in the US do the same to a dog if they can get into water...will sit on the dogs head and drown them..

There is a small herd of what the French press calls kangaroos but that I assume to be wallabies due to their small size that has settled for several decades in an area of the Rambouillet forest (south of Paris); they come from stock that escaped a fenced wildlife park. They are mainly known to people because several are run by cars each year. They are not on the list of species that can be legally hunted in France however I assume they should be subject to a culling plan by the relevant administration bodies as non-native and possibly invasive species.

such things happen
in north germany there is a mob of greater rhea, now over 200 and also escaped from a fenced park years ago.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dYWnqKtHg5I
because they dont exist as a hunting species in the law you cant shoot them. farmer there hate them because they made a lot of crop damage and they attack walker too. of course, greens pet them!

greens pet also the wolf and when this guy will reach this area - whats only a question of short time -
this will end ... in a short time.

I think I could successfully box one - I'd use a Model 29, or even a .38 for that matter.

That'd probably do it Daryl.
But........ I was standing next to a mate (MT) one time, and seen him put 5 x 1 1/4 oz of BB's, into the chest of a big male Eastern Grey Skippy (A5 Browning & Full choke).
All 5 shots were at an animal hopping straight toward MT and MT hit him in the chest with all 5 shots. Starting at 35 ish meters and the last was at maybe 5 meters.
The Skippy only stopped, when he hopped passed MT and ran into a netting fence.
Sure he was dead on his feet but they are TUFF......... you have been warned.
