So it looks like we might get the Wolf hunt here in Idaho... Should know more by the end of the month.
When it's legal, I'll be killing those Elk eating bastards with my Kimber of Oregon 89 BGR in 300 Win Mag stoked with 165 grain pills. The wife would like a vest but if I line up the shot properly I might be able to make her a coat !!!!

Here is a wolf story from off YouTube. Just seems appropriate to share it here.

Rogie, Hopefully you guys will be able to start thinning these hungry canines out soon. Sad to hear about the elk herd in Selway and other areas being killed off by these wolves. Treehuggers really don't care about the elk do they?
