" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

It sounds from the article like they're not removing the whole pack. Is that what you get, Jackelope?

When will the WDFW admit the wolf plan is total garbage and scrap it in favor of a better plan?  How much money is the state throwing away on wolves?

 :bash:

Open up wolf hunting.  Should be the same rules as coytes IMO.
May I always be the kind of person my dog thinks I am.

Agreed, and they will still be a problem, which is why they were eventually targeted even more aggressively in the past.

They have no interest in addressing the problem, there are too many pointless high paying jobs associated with the "recovery"  From reading this is appears WFWD just could not find the shooter did anything wrong.  What a waste of time and money

Along the lines of what I was going to say.  You spend $$$ to bring in wolves and then not much later you have to spend more $$$ to control the size of the packs or the cattle depredation of the packs.   It seems inane to have brought them in and shortly after control the numbers of them. 

I say if the "public" wants them then either have the "public" pony up the funds to manage them..... or have the public be satisfied with viewing them in zoos.

I agree it's all a waste of money, and there's no end to killing problem wolves. But, to set the record straight, nobody spent any money to bring wolves into Washington. They walked across the border with no help from us.

Altering behavior by killing a few, that has never been tried.  Wait, the Neanderthals did the same and all have been using this method ever since.  Nearly a hundred thousand years and the wolf is still one of the most successful, widely distributed and populated predators on the planet.  Throw some more money at it WDFW.

What this article proves is that all this B'S the department has sold cattlemen doesn't work. It just delays the inevitable.

And some people wondered why cattlemen were hesitant to sign up for this program...

We've been spending buckets of it ever since. And don't believe for a minute we didn't spend money to establish the wolf plan. Studies, experts, hearings, electronics - we spent plenty "letting them come in."

Anyone know what the cost is to the producer to hire "WDFW contracted range riders"?
Sounds expensive to me.

Last time I looked at it WDFW shared the expense with Conservation Northwest. Not sure that's still true, it's been a few years since I looked at it.

I thought about doing it, but all you do is ride around looking for dead cattle  :dunno:

Of course the state has spent a ton of money on wolf management / wolf studies. No argument there. I was only pointing out that the state didn't bring the wolves here, as many people mistakenly seem to believe.
