Shooting a wolf is not poaching! Its Conservation.
I kill elk and eat elk, when I'm not, I'm thinking about killing elk and eating elk.

It doesn't matter what you think...

I have no problem turning any poacher in.   Law is the Law.  You are not doing our hunting tradition any favors by being a criminal!

For those who say the law is the law, so if the anti's get their way and hunting is illegal period- will you stop hunting? I will never turn in anyone who shoots an animal that is a threat to our hunting rights. It's NOT a privaledge in my book, it's a RIGHT. And the wolves can ruin it all, F*&k the wolves. SSS

No, I wouldn't
If its an unconfirmed pack then they are just wild dogs and I don't know about any laws against shooting a feral dog

NOPE, i wouldnt turn in my worst enemy for shootn a wolf, but only a wolf, cats kill alot of deer and elk fawns but we were startn to get a handle on things until wolves became so prevalent in certain places, wolves are pure oppurtunists not unlike a cat but since they hunt in packs they are alot more succesful when it comes to killn, and their a hell of alot smarter, and with all the libs in this state it wont be long until are elk and deer populations are in dire straights in certain areas, what happens then, well i can tell ya, they shut down those units and those hunters will have to move to other units and then before long it will be permitt huntn only for everyone and then huntn will cease to exist........ so as trophyhunt asked, would you not hunt illegally if they took all are huntn away? i would......and if we dont contain these wolves quickly it wont be long  :tup:

This thread is pure gold to people in the anti hunting lobby. Nothing better than seeing hunters who stress ethical, law abiding, hunting and then talk out the side of their mouths about turning a blind eye to poaching.

Good job guys, keep it up.

Online conversations like this do not help our tradition. Just like honey holes, some things are best kept to yourselves and not posted online.

I would not because my understanding is that the native wolves were wiped out from our state, and the wolves we have now are larger, more aggressive Canadian grey wolves introduced to the state artificially. So, I consider them a non-native invasive species. I would not shoot one myself or condone it because our current(retarded) laws have them listed as protected. I would kind of like there to still be a deer/elk herd when my son is old enough to start hunting with me though.  :twocents:
