I hereby solemnly swear. . . .

To shoot any and all wolves I see this hunting season. I am tired of wildlife being managed by emotion. Elk herds are getting destroyed. Enough is enough. Delisted, Relisted, Whatever! Dont care anymore. Unfortunately instead of relying on scientists to manage wildlife, sportsmen now have to take it into their own hands. I refuse to stand by and just watch one of the worst ecological disasters take place in my Idaho stomping grounds. Good luck this year guys.

Make the rest of us look bad?

Make the rest of us look bad? What are you ashamed of what you do? We go out and we kill animals. How do you make that look good to someone who thinks deer or elk are cute. Or who have never really entertained the thought that the steak they are munching on was killed by someone else. Im just saying they is no arguing with these people on this matter. If sportsmen would band together and put up enough of a stink things would be way different. What if 100 sportsmen this hunting season shot wolves illegally. Think FWS might get the point?

I have nothing to be ashamed of, but I'm also follwing my states wildlife laws. The anti's dont need any more fuel for there fire, and doing something illegal and announceing it is just plain dumb, no offence but you do know the police could track you down via IP address and ISP and arrest you if your announceing that you plan on breaking the law and follow through. Use your head, Like i said before you gotta do what you gotta do just keep it to yourself.

I go out and I hunt animals I'm not going out killing... your missing the point man. BTW your the one whining not me. People illegaly shoot more animals then the wolves would ever kill in one season but we're not going around hunting people. I hope someone turns your arogant a$$ in.

Your are no sportsmen sir... and you make us sportsmen look bad.

"One does not hunt in order to kill; on the contrary, one kills in order to have hunted...If one were to present the sportsman with the death of the animal as a gift he would refuse it. What he is after is having to win it, to conquer the surly brute through his own effort and skill with all the extras that this carries with it: the immersion in the countryside, the healthfulness of the exercise, the distraction from his job."

No, there would be 100

No, there would be 100 hunters getting tickets, paying fines and loosing their hunting rights. Then the media gets a hold of this and distorts the facts more which will bring more pressure on the situation.  If you want to do something about the situation, just do it. Never ever announce your intentions. Follow Critter's advice.
