    I see the comments from the wolf huggers run pretty much true to form....this is why game management should be left to game managers...

    I wouldn't worry about the poll results. Montana knows how to manage invasive species.

    Idaho has a seven month long hunting season on public property, a year round season on private property, and 4.5 month long trapping season.

    We still can't get the wolf population under contol. The fed won't be happy until the last cervid is gone.
    When our governing officials dismiss due process as mere semantics, when they exercise powers they don’t have and ignore duties they actually bear, and when we let them get away with it, we have ceased to be our own rulers.

    The good folk in Montana have access to shovels, backhoes, trackhoes, and bulldozers, and know how to use them. Sayin'.

    The Yellowstone elk herd that migrates into the National Elk Refuge has surely been decimated. They used to give out thousands of elk tags each year, then after 1995 the tag quota steadily declined to the pittance it is today. A couple hundred...maybe. Also the Moose population in western Wyoming has also taken a wolf-caused hit. They stopped all cow moose hunting and only give out a couple of tags a year in areas that formerly had tags number in the hundreds. All thanks to the Clinton administration shoving these invasive Canadian Grey wolves down our throats, without any input from residents.

    You know the Happy Nature types always say there hasn't been but 1 or no incidents of Wolves attacking people in over a 100 years....well that's because they didn't make it back to talk about it!

    I'll bet they would be all for shootin them dead if they were being stalked in the wilderness by a pack of predatory wolves!

    Much less the damage to domesticated farm animals and other creatures in the wild. Wolves ain't vegetarians ya know and if they get hungry enough...................

    Yeah, it's not illegal to kill wild dogs.

    And they also get a kick out of putting those tracking collars in plastic peanut butter jars and tossing them into the Missouri River. That let's the government track them all the way to New Orleans, and beyond. :tooth:
