The wolves have all but wiped

The wolves have all but wiped out the deer in our upper peninsula. It's not unusual to hear of dogs being killed, happens all the time. Even our illustrious DNR has warnings about that in the hunting guides.

You may think it's pretty cool the first time you see one but you'll soon learn to hate them all. Shoot, shovel, shut up.

The Wolves

Just wait till you shoot that nice 6 X 6 bull elk and you are bent over him doing your do diligence of taking care of your trophy when a pack of 2, 4, or 6 of these creatures approach you. I have seen these in Northern Colorado and I agree SSS. If we are having an over abundance of Elk then give out more permits. Helps the herds and gives money to the wildlife division, plus puts meat on the table for hunters like me. The coyote population is getting bad enough along with the bear population. Let's not have an imported assassin come in and take care of what we are perfectly capable of handling as hunters. These wolves will learn quickly that cows, horses, goats, sheep etc. are a lot easier targets than the elk. Will it actually take loosing of a human life before the authorities say enough and open the season on these like coyotes?

AMAZING!

It's amazing to me what a little time, and the repitition of lies will do.
Fifty years ago I doubt any one poster here would've said having wolves around is a good thing. Now, with the passage of time and the brainwashing of the general public by the tree hugging, bunny loving, granola eating envirowackos, we have hunters that believe having wolves around is a good thing.
If there are too many deer, elk, or other prey species the solution is not wolves. Hold on to your hat, as it really is a simple solution for the various Game and Fish agencies that supposedly manage these game populations. Issue more game tags of the species you have an abundance of!
We have more than surpassed the original goals for wolf survival. It's time to say, "The only good wolf is a dead wolf."

There is a lot of brain washing that goes on with the public.  The sheeple that listen to the main stream media are a perfect recipe for that.  An idea gets sowed and suddenly is popular, everyone jumps on the band wagon and believes things with not real proof or scientific evidence.  We've seen that a lot with the so-called Green movement over the years. 

sheeple = people are like sheep.

Same thing can also be said about the numerous hunters out there who think their right to arms is safe from politicians and that another weapons ban won't eventually lead to their coveted hunting rifle being taken away.  Vigilance is the price of freedom and if we accept at face value everything the media and hollywood is throwing at us we are doomed to lose it all.

Wolves

I just want to share a story from my father a trapper in Idaho. He was trapping one day and ran into one of the trappers that helped trap the original wolves in canada that were brought to Idaho and released. My dad began to ask him about the wolves and give his oppinion on them. The state trapper then told him what happened whey they met with the Canadian government about trapping some of their wolves. It went something like this according to what my Dad said: "Let me get this strait. You want to come up here and capture some of our wolves and reintroduce them down there? Are you freaking nuts? that's the %^$#&* idea you could have. I use all my resources, trappers, hunters, helicopters, and I still can't keep their numbers in check. We spend millions on them and now you want to? It will be one #%$% mistake and you'll regret it." They caught the desired amount of wolves in 2 weeks when they were given 8 weeks.

Now you can take this story for hear say that's fine, some of the details are probably fuzzy he told me this 1 year ago so I'm sure there are some mistakes but the overall message is true. The Canadians knew we were going to screw ourselves and I'm pretty sure we have. One more thing, any hunter that can support wolves over having more hunters or tags handed out to control herd populations has no common sense. It cost millions to control wolves. Idaho and the federal government have fought of who is to manage them a lot. Why? because of cost. I'm sure we need that in our budget.
