Idaho Commissioners OK Wolf Proposal in Lolo
Quote:
If the elk decline were caused by hunters, the department would have taken action three years ago, he said.

The commissioners expressed their frustration with the delay in delisting wolves in Idaho, and authorized Unsworth to continue to gather data and to resubmit the proposal next spring. They also told the department to do everything it can to urge the Fish and Wildlife Service to remove wolves in Idaho from the endangered species list as soon as possible.

Government red tape. banghead Lolo elk are in trouble big time and Now is the time to take action, actually it was a few years back.

I am all for managing wolves but wasn't the lolo herd in decline before the wolf reintroduction. Before the wolves there was to much fire supression. I wonder which is it or is it all of the above.

I wish Montana and Idaho hadn't caved in to the feds and stuck with Wyoming by now we could leaglly shoot wolves inside the yellowstone eco system (bacially 100 miles outside of the park boundary) as long as you possessed a tag and outside that area they could be shot as predators.
I don't miss the dinosaurs and I didn't miss the wolf (my $.02)

oops,done with my rant
back to the thread, in the Lolo, the Frank (north and south of the river) should be tags available, no draw, across the counter,

You know if or when they do let a few tags for wolves go it will be a draw or some sort of raffle. Draws will bring in more money and i.m.o. that is really all idaho f&g commisions is about. They have proven that time and time again. I have gone on their web site and read the minutes of many of their meetings and all they talk about is how to raise more money, sell out the non res. tags, ect.

Ssp, I couldn't agree with you more, but to my amazement they did manage to sell all of the non-res elk tags this year. I think this is a first for several years.

I was told that this is the second year in row that they sold out of non res elk tags, also they sold out of the deer tags last year. Many of these were of course purchased by residents for second tags.
