As early as 2021? Great we wont have a game animal left by then and those that are will be so skitterish they will be extremely hard to hunt.

And just think ID, MT and Wyoming had enough wolves to delist in 6 years.

Worthless WDF&wolves predicts 19 years to delist...

Ledgerwood is right by my inlaws place.
:fire.:

" 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

When will they name the three other packs in this area?

And thatís not a tinfoil generated comment. Iíve seen them, multiple times.

Was bound to happen, they are getting more wolves, wait till they have 10 or 15 packs, I'm convinced you can't keep a pack away from cattle forever, they all eventually want the beef!

Perhaps just like the transit packs that are in the northeast part. If they range across the border in their eyes they aren't really a pack in Washington.

Perhaps Iíll never have to worry about burning my 21 quality bull points either.

Certainly around and killing cattle.  One of many problems for the local deer and elk.  Not unusual to see more black bears than mule deer where I look spring and summer.

Wolves around the world follow a very set pattern of behavior according to available food. They go after wildlife until they find the easier livestock. When they have no fear of humans due to non-lethal measures being used, they start coming closer. Initially, they feed on pets, then garbage, then start testing the people. At this stage, they first get close, even pull at clothing. But without fear of man, wolves will eventually start attacking people. This has been proven over and over in Russia, Iran, Scandinavia, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan. Many of these places have disarmed their populace. The government usually waits for people to start dying before coming in and wiping wolves out. And, the cycle is usually about 20-30 years. We're getting close and without delisting, our future is written in stone. Wolf behavior doesn't change from country to county. The patterns have been established and are well documented. Our idiot legislature and governor will likely wait until several people have been attacked before taking action to protect us. Don't be in wolf country without extra ammo and a firearm with which you are well-trained.
