He should sue WDFW for libel.

Why?

WDFW is a government entity, they've accused this person of being a "poacher". 

There is no such thing as a poacher, there's no RCW, there's no legal term "poacher".      It is purely slanderous, and since it's in writing it's libel.

Good to know, screw waiting for a tag, blue mountains here I come!

The devil is in the details how he got caught, he owned the land they were killed on, and he kept the skulls, plus traps with evidence on them, this guy is a rocket scientist.  :chuckle:
The Mafia rarely get caught... They are professionals.

Ridiculous!  How can an animal be endangered one day, and then your over the ridge and be hunted like crazy?  This is right on the Idaho border where you can legally kill more than three a year!  Those wolves were certainly Idaho's wolves just as much as Washington's.  I wish he'd have hired a really good lawyer.  This state is so messed up!   :bash:

"At least" 115 Wolves? Really? Ohhh those poor things... Are you kidding me?

I am just sick of this misinformation and polluted reporting across the board. I am especially sick of these delusional thinkers on the other side of this state, waving their wands and completely disrupting every possible facet of Eastern WA life. It's gone WAY too far in my opinion.

I know I am ranting at this point, but I've spent 40% of the last 3 month's trying to research, decipher, and "keep legal" with the incredible amount of insanity coming out of the East. It's unconstitutional as far as I am concerned. I'm sick of trying to be civil, "understanding," and "smiley" with these people. Delusional freaks. From economics to wildlife... it's a complete disaster.

So, no more civility for me. The next "wolfie" I run into is going to get a good one, tour to the wolf grounds that is.

It's legit, don't know if it'll happen but there is steam behind the motion.   I think you'll see something very soon, something that will be all over the media.

I've said it over and over folks, it's not worth it.

The wolves will multiply and make up for any losses this guy inflicted on the pack, the deer/elk he "saved" will still be eaten. 
His "management" of the local pack is short lived, but his record is not.

Fight tooth and nail to get wolves managed, but don't do it yourself, it harms everyone involved.

Glad he was caught!  He's a scum bag poacher and his kind is not welcome in the hunting community.

I agree. As much as we don't need or want them here, him killing WA wolves literally does more harm than good... even to us as hunters, and it's yet another black eye for the hunting community.

I'd love to see a court challenge, the elk in the blues have been hit hard, one of our best quality areas is going down hill fast.  wolves are a big part of that problem, if the people who live there and care about the elk and deer herds take a few wolves out, good for them.  Just how I feel about it.

so he gets charged that much and the guys down in southwest WA that poached over a hundred big game animals got a 500 dollar fine.  Our system is a little off kilter :bash:

Curious to know if you guys who are supporting this guy would be ok illegally killing wolves yourself in Washington or if you're just all talk?

Just like the illegal gun laws that get passed very little can be done unless there is a test case with legal standing.

Who wants to be the legal test case for a felony? Not me. Since it is no longer a felony to kill one in this state perhaps the bar is low enough for a legal challenge.

Unless you went out and shot a wolf and drug it to the Game warden and said charge me.... The likelyhood of a perfect test case is close to zero.

I am for sound management practices, so far I have not seen any presented by WDFW or the voters of Washington.

Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.
