Wolves Again!

Makwa, I agree with you. IMO, The USFWS have been taken over by greenies and unfortunately their decisions are based more on politics than sound biology and common sense.

If you don't believe the wolves are a problem and would like to hear them howl a night in your backyard here is your chance. The people of Idaho have a great deal for you. Take all you want, their free for the asking.

When wolves are forced on the state of Colorado and the Elk herds begin to be impacted, I think this issue will get more support from the general public. Until then Idaho Fish and Game will be happy to take your $500.00 in hunting and tag fees for you to come and sit around the campfire and talk about the good days. Before the Wolves.

I read in the newspaper the other day, that Texas is overran with wild pigs which are tearing up the countryside, and they just can't seem to do anything about their problem. I think we should send a big load of our wolves down there to help them out of that situation. I'm sure that would make them very happy, and also make us much happier,,,, Yes

Wolves Again!

i was on top of raton pass at my tower this friday-the surrounding land owner is from minnesota and bought this property to use as a hunting grounds. he was here hunting turkeys .he told me he had seen a wolf's tracks in snow just off a rim rock. i do not doubt him as he said he had experience with them in mi.

by crater lakes we saw what i am sure was a grizzly when i was 12 or 13 game warden said we were nuts as they were long shot out . well he had a huge hump and was digging out a whistle pig and throwing some really big rocks-i have seen many blackies in the wild and not a one looked like this bruin.

ted turner would like to have his own personal pack i am sure.

No sense in sending the wolves down here. The pigs are so well established that the wolves would likley seek other prey. I hunt on a 400 acre private ranch own by my uncle and we kill anywhere from 60 to 100 pigs a year off it. The same area is also home to high numbers of cattle, sheep, and goats.
Now the pigs have no predators down here except us ( Yes we shoot everyone we see. In fact that is a rule for everyone allowed on the ranch)
They run in large groups get quite large and are very aggressive. I see cattle being easier prey then the turbo repreducing, land destroying, tank pests we have now.

We already got one mega problem please don't consider sending us another. I'm already having trouble affording the cost of arrows/bullets

BTW- My personal pig count this year is 5 and I have only gone 2 weekends so far.
Oh yea and they cook up great too
