Wolf overpopulation is drastically reducing elk and moose populations.

Help Us Protect Our Big Game Heritage

Don’t let abundant big game herds become a thing of the past. In the 1800’s, hundreds of thousands of American Bison roamed the plains.The loss of bison herds, once thought invincible, is one of the tragic stories of the 19th century. If we don’t learn from history, we are bound to repeat the mistakes of the past.

With wolf numbers increasing at 25% growth rates, wolf populations are doubling every 3 to 4 years. Failure to act and anti-management litigation has already resulted in the loss of tens of thousands of elk and moose within key herds. With depradation numbers spiraling out of control, any further damage to Rocky Mountain Elk, Shiras Moose, Bighorn Sheep, Mule Deer and Whitetails will only become more devastating. We must act now to protect and restore healthy populations of big game species.

We call on Congress to support state management authority, to allow regulation of wolf populations in current wolf states, and in order to protect wildlife populations in adjacent states as wolf populations spread

We call on states to ensure balanced wolf management to maintain and protect wildlife herds.

"The [environmental] movement has sought to restore wildlife by the control of guns alone, with little visible success. Management seeks the same end, but by more versatile means. We seem to have two choices: try it, or hunt rabbits."

—Aldo Leupold, 1932
Game Management

The message is clear. We can either manage for abundance or we will only have rabbits to hunt.
