There in there lies the problem, when the evidence is presented a deaf ear is turned in that direction. Do you actually believe for one moment they are going to go against their pre set quotas? When you set your population objectives so low your rear is always covered.

I am aware of the wolf management plan.  I shouldn't have tried to water down my thought.  Get over it and just keep hunting.  It is obvious that the wolves are here to stay and expand as the WDFW desires.  My point was, keep hunting deer and the population decreases which will decrease the wolf population as a follow on (which seems to be what the majority here wants).  Give up hunting opportunities and you create a buffet to allow the wolves to thrive.  Maybe it is more clear now that I put it that way?  We just have to accept there will be up and down years in regards to quality of hunts until WDFW changes their mind.  How do you change their mind is a whole other topic.  Research "common sense conservation/Missouri" and see how the hunters there persuaded the game department.  Until we stand together as a hunting community to protest (not just rant) the WDFW, it will not change.  A year or two with minimal tag and permit sales will get their attention very fast.

Two more days dudes

Anyone been calling your local bios??
Have you called your district biologist to voice your concerns?
Have you attended a public meeting on season setting?
You are getting exactly what you deserve from WDFW

Release the hounds!   Give enough doe tags per unit to increase buck to doe populations! :twocents:
