Wolf Wars have moved to Washington
« on: June 03, 2011, 08:22:24 PM »
I am ramping up the wolf discussions again. You all know I am passionate about the future of hunting in Washington, for the next few months while the Wildlife Comnmission determines the final Washington Wolf Plan it is imperative that hunters have heavy input.  It is now time, we all need to make our voices heard. Please post your thoughts about wolves in this thread.

Do you think we need 15 breeding pairs in Washington?

no we do not.  the wolves time and place have ended in the lower 48.  They cannot succesfully coexsist along side us in this modern age.  To allow wolve to stay or to implant them will create future conflicts with ranchers, farmers, outdoorsmen, hikers, and valuable tax dollars will be wasted trying to protect this species.  :twocents:

Humans have taken the place of wolves.... We have controlled populations by hunting and simply by destroying habitat itself with growth. We do not need wolves!!!!

I think the most difficult part of the 15 breeding pairs will not be the 15 breeding pairs but where they need to be. Thats my biggest issue. You could have 15 breeding pairs between the northeast and the methow for instance but thats not good enough. You got to have 3 here and 2 there and some here and some there....that'll be the hardest part of meeting population objectives to achieve the delisting by today's standards.

 I don't think we NEED any wolves in this state. There were never gray wolves here in the first place. Completely different canines than what were here historically. Bringing in the wrong wolf carrying a horrid disease (Hydatid) should be a felony offense. Too many urbanites in love w/there filthy little muts and Disney movies don't get the sheer size of these animals and the destruction they cause to the ungulate herds. I wish the tribes would unite and sue the feds over what will amount to be the end of thier hunting as well. AAAAARRRRRGGGGHHHH!!!!!     But, I digress.  :chuckle:

Last spring the WDFG put on a wolf presentation for a local group here in Spokane.
It was attended by Quadrafire,Whacker and Myself.


http://hunting-washington.com/smf/index.php/topic,72248.0.html

The thing that I found most disturbing is that they will only count a pack if they breed in this state, not those that are close to a border either Canada or Idaho. Even though they are crossing the lines to feed on the resource we have here.

The Bio even made mention of a pack in the Salmo that spends it time in all 3 parts but it doesn't count.

There have been wolves in this state since the late 70's along the border but just not to the extent that they wish to have now.

100% NO, there is enough predators in the Eco system to take care of the role of predator. The wolf is to good of a predator and often kills way more then they need and for sport. They will decimate the population of moose in the north east and even the sheep and goat herds that are sensitive as they are already. There is no reason to have wolves in this state. The herds of deer and elk will be erased and the wolves will run free with the people running the fish and wildlife. Who care more about the cougars and bears and wolves then they do about our deer and elk herds. Then the livestock/ranchers like myself, will pay the ultimate price for the wolf lovers who have brought them back to our state. I will never support the wolf being in washington. From the " " migratory wolves and the ones dumped out already there is way more then 15 breeding pair in washington.

No we do not, the folks at the WDFW will be out of a job if we do because nobody will be buying hunting licences, tags or special permits. what we will be doing is buying wolf tags and I dont want to eat dog.

We need to lower the penalties for the taking of wolves out of season. Make it equal to the lowest parking infraction.    :twocents:

In one of the states they tried to get a bounty passed in the legislature, but too many legislators were afraid it would hinder getting delisting in Congress.

Guess what, it's pretty darn abvious Malloy is going to overrule Congress anyway.  :twocents:

I would like to know the real driving force behind the reintroduction.  What is the real reason they are pushing this so hard?
