Salmon, Idaho's 1st Annual Wolf & Coyote Derby, Dec 28-29
« on: December 22, 2013, 07:26:54 PM »
Hope some of you can attend this event being put on by our friends at Idaho For Wildlife:  http://idahoforwildlife.com/component/content/article/2-content/39-salmon-predator-derby

Salmon,  Idaho's 1st Annual predator Derby, December 28-29, 2013!

This is an incredible opportunity to team up with your son or daughter during Christmas break and spend some quality time in the gorgeous Salmon, Idaho Country!

 Even though we don't expect to harvest a lot of wolves we hope to take quite a few coyotes. Wolves in Idaho are considered a big game animal just like a deer or elk. Coyotes are classified as an unprotected predator and can be hunted year around. Youth hunters who are 12 years of age or older, and have received their hunters education certificate and have a valid hunting license and wolf tag may hunt wolves. Youth that are 10 years or older who have passed hunters education and have a valid hunting license can hunt coyotes as long as they have a mentoring parent or adult.

 One of our goals is to also increase the awareness of wolf diseases and to educate the public on taking the proper safety measures  and precautions while in wolf country.  In the past few years, 100% of the wolves harvested in the Salmon Valley have tested positive for these horrible diseases that can spread to humans.

 We are grateful for our right to hunt and fish in Idaho and we can never take these rights for granted! We are also aware that Idaho has a statute (36-1510) that reads, " No person shall Harass, intimidate or threaten by any means including, but not limited to, personal or written contact, or via telephone, e-mail or website, any person who is or was engaged in the lawful taking or control of fish or wildlife any Interference with hunting, fishing, trapping or wildlife control."

 We are grateful for the Idaho Fish and Game, Idaho Legislature and the IDFG commission for providing fair chase hunting opportunities such as what will occur during this event as a vehicle to attempt to keep wolves in check.  Idaho’s elk populations have been devastated in high wolf density regions of the state due to wolf predation. Since wolves don’t self-regulate, they can reduce the prey populations so low they can fall into  “Predator Pits.”

Wolves can actually "Wink" out of the ecosystem once they have eliminated the prey base. Prudent wildlife managers in Alaska and Canada realize the importance of wolf control. As an example, the providence of Alberta has a current bounty on wolves with year around hunting in many areas. Canada has had far more experience with wolf management than the Lower 48 states and understands the devastation wolves cause to their big game populations and the livestock industry.  The radical animal rights groups such as Defenders of Wildlife oppose this derby and are spreading  misinformation all over the web about a feared wolf slaughter and mass killings of predators for no reason! Defenders of wildlife thrives on exploiting these wonderful traditional hunting opportunities with friends and family for the opportunity to raise more dollars to fight againt our hunting heritage.

One of the local Salmon outfitters had over 40 different hunters in his camp this year and only 1 hunter saw a wolf and he took a shot and missed the wolf. Wolf experts know that sport hunting is not an effective wolf control measure and this two day derby will not negatively impact the wolf population in this area.

No kidding. Not surprising, doubt they are investigating. Probably saving their resources for investigating the towns people running the derby.

Or, maybe they are choosing not to divulge information while they are investigating the origin and validity of the threats.

Glad the law enforcement strategists are analyzing this for us. :rolleyes:

Just because they won't confirm it, doesn't mean they are doing it.  Hardly anything to merit the cynical comments above.

It's easy to become cynical if you've grown up in Washington, but this is Idaho. I think they are turning a corner over there. They are done with this wolf crap and are implementing measures (slowly but steadily) to 'fix' the situation. Cudos to them  :tup:

What?  Idaho has had a reasonable wolf plan for years...what do you mean they are just "turning a corner"?

I'd love to live in Idaho  :tup:

Even though the state is messed up do to these vermin.
