I agree wolves should be removed from the endangered species list.
I’ve been researching wolf hunting and plan to visit the panhandle this coming February. I’ve only drove through Coeur d’Alene and I really have no Idea where I’m going. I’m tentatively planning to hunt either Coeur d’Alene or Sandpoint area. I’m considering renting a snow mobile to cover more ground and hoping that I can’t hunt somewhere with little private land and something to see more then thick timber and brush. Do you have any recommendations on what area I might have the best luck? I’d take any advise or even if you know someone I could reach out to for advise to help plan where exactly I’m going. Also, do you know where my best resource would be for winter access? I don’t know where to find what roads will or won’t be accessible in the winter by car or snow mobile. I’m capable of skinning off road and experienced in traveling through deep snow on foot but it seams like I’d be more successful with winter road/trail access. Any info you can give me will be much appreciated!!
I agree…wolves should be removed from the endangered species list…now !!
“Special interest groups with narrow focus” Uh. Kinda like the kettle calling the pot black no? Ever heard of A Sand County Almanac? Mr. Leopold? Nice graphics, but pretty misleading information. As usual, you’re using half truths to cry foul on your coveted bull elk and trophy mule deer. Too bad you can’t put as much effort into habitat conservation and collaboration as you do in the anti-wolf argument. But that’s not very convenient is it? It’s much simpler to just blame wolves right? Plus you get to shoot the critters, which is really admirable. Bravo. Hunting is an important tool for conservation but don’t you think there are important roles for predators? Wolves eat elk. That’s what they do. No need to dramatize it.
Wolves eat people too!
Hey Aldo (likley not your real name): People are capable—and motivated by consequences—to follow rules and quotas, and stay in geographic bounds and stay off private lands—wolves are not. Claiming an unpredictable predator has essentially the same capacity as human hunters to achieve conservation is oddly anthropomorphic, and not logical—nice try.
Wolfs eat elk. Interesting as their main diet was bison. Not elk. Bison herds sustained the wolf not elk. Wolfs need to eat several pounds of meat a day to live. Elk herds can’t supply the growing population of wolfs with enough to eat. Do the math. Pretty simple to many wolfs leads to no elk and starving wolfs. Solution harvest some wolfs.
I also agree wolves should be removed from the endangered species list.
Wolves in Washington state are creating a nightmare and if allowed to continue, will only create more headaches and tax monies spent/lost rapidly.
Clean up after these liberals mess,they left ,bring wolf population back down to specs!!
I am so glad President Trump is going to do something about this. Saw the video on FaceBook. I have seen what wolves can do. We live in North Idaho and the wolves have made the elk numbers so low it’s not even funny. Big bulls are a specialty around here and there are places where deer and elk are rare. I talked to a hunter last fall who lives up the Saint Joe, and she said when she went deer hunting, while walking there were wolves surrounding her. No way to hunt with that! The wolves through everything off. And there numbers just keep growing while the big (and small) game numbers plummet. Please, do something so the big game can once again thrive! Thank you!
