...and the other problem is the total predator outlook and lack of plan. They don't know how to count cougars. Wolves are multiplying fast, up to 40%/year. Grizzlies are just another straw on the camel's back. Without a cohesive predator management plan, we shouldn't be looking at one more apex predator. We have no idea what's happening now.

Here in lies the problem. You don't just have Wa residents voting on Grizzlies or Wolves here in Wa. You have these coordinated groups from outside of Wa voting on issues that will probably never affect them. Example a greenie or tree hugger from Mississippi voting on reintroduction of grizzlies in the NCNP. :twocents:
How often have you as a hunter voted on legislation outside of Wa?

I think all Americans should have some say as to what happens in the national parks. But it's the residents of Washington and WA government (incluiding WDFW) who control what happens in the rest of the state. :twocents:

That's fine and dandy but when its a coordinated effort that is not on the federal level only and paid to participate then it becomes a purchased effort. Also the grizzlies are going to stay in the park right?

I certainly agree it's a coordinated effort by groups but  should be able to influence what happens in our parks. Residents in the states should have more control regarding management outside the parks. I really don't care if they want grizzlies or wolves in parks, but we should be able to control predator numbers outside the park.

Im sick and tired of you guys from the north east complaining about the wolves yet when you have the ability to deal with them you don't. Can't have your cake and eat it too. Only good wolf is a dead wolf pretty simple really when the opportunity presents itself let them have it.

We know a rancher who has seen wolves numerous times passing through their property located right in the heart of one of the most human populated areas in the Colville Valley close to busy Hwy 395. This morning at daylight there was a black and two grays sitting on their haunches studying their cattle.   :bash:

Talked to a different rancher who lost at least two cattle last year in a different part of Stevens County, two confirmed wolf kills, took 9 months to get reimbursed, it could get real ugly for them now that the pack in their area has tasted beef!  :yike:

Another wolf was back, watching one of the cows give birth this morning. I had told the landowner they should try and scare these wolves away the next time they saw them. Fortunately they were able to scare the wolf away. They have seen these wolves watching their cattle numerous times, I really think it's just a matter of time.   :bdid:

We had one running around the east side of chewelah last year, a chewelah cop took a shot at it one night.  It hasn't been seen since. Here's a picture of it judge for yourself.

Do you know more to the story of the cop who took a shot at it .Was it attacking livestock, or pet,or what?

I don't have a problem with his actions,just wanted to hear more about it.
It was after a dog and was in several yards for a few nights in a row. The game department said it was a hybrid that's why it was so comfortable being in town.

How convenient for the game dept.  I'm pretty sure all the wolves around my place are hybrids too, if only a few fractional percentages...one drop rule work for wolves?  None of them are pure.

Another wolf spotted on Skidmore Road, that's right by Arden and not far from the rancher where wolves are stalking the cattle! Maybe this should be called the Arden Pack!  :chuckle:
