Bigtex has been a great asset for us on Hunting Washington over the years.
I have found that he is a straight shooter, and tells it like it is from an insiders point of view.
He has disagreed with many things the WDFW has done over the years.
You may disagree with him, but he tells the side of the story we don't usually get to see.
Only 2 defining forces sacrificed themselves for you:
The American Soldier and Jesus Christ. One died for your freedom, the other for your soul.

My rock,
He trains my hands for war and my fingers for battle.

Absolutely agree with this. I know we all have our unique set of beliefs, biasís and opinions....but I have always appreciated Big Texís factual and informative posts on every topic Iíve seen him chime in on. I canít imagine how difficult it would be to work for an organization that seems to squander away the resources we all love to enjoy and recreate in.
#BigTex: Thank You!

The wolf consultant kool aid must be working.....on WDFW.

I am wondering does WDFW actually think wolves are harmless?  Or were they hoping for the best, fearing the worst that they would have to call in their extra expensive helo snipers and then get yelled at by the legislature (Ranker) and Inslee?

If they would have to shoot a wolf you can bet, it would turn out to be the breeding female, even if it had the twig and berries.

Mech said, what turn the public against wolves was lack of wolf control, we are now past that stage. Few more incidences like the last one and the public might take stronger action without WDF&Wolves approval, or WDFW might realize they have to step up delisting-Doubtful.

#BigTex: Thank You!

Bigtex has provided actual information on LOTS of topics on this board.

He is absolutely a great resource.

I doubt I'd ever agree with anyone 100%, but he posts lots of flat fact.... not just opinion.

Well. theres going to be more run-ins with these things, like I said awhile ago (for at least the Methow) its just a matter of time before something even worse happens with wolves involved. The amount of hikers, cross country skiers, joggers etc.that are out there is growing not to mention hunters, backcountry fisherman and other recreation that is booming here. I really think more of this stuff will increase and chances are the outcomes will be worse eventually. The Methow Valley along with its growing recreational opportunities and a growing population is really the last place apex predators should be being protected and nurtured, someone will eventually need to be held accountable when the unthinkable happens.... :twocents:

Once the government has determined that human life is less important than an endangered species, no one will be held accountable.

Lame.

If there's anyone on the forum that doesn't deserve an insult like that, it's Bigtex.

: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

I think it is despicable that a government agency would prioritize anything in front of human life.  It is indefensible to think that human life is less important than any wildlife, endangered species or not.  What if it was a family member of yours?  Wife or daughter?  When the rescue efforts were told to "stand down"?  You would have a very different point of view.  Think before you run your mouth off in defense of others.

From every thing I have seen, Bigtex doesn't "Spin " things. He will tell you what is or isn't and I appreciate that. It is up to you to believe or not. As others have said-- Thanks Bigtex for your input.

Do you have any inside information that allows you to understand the nature of the "stand down" order?

I've seen other stand downs for lots of reasons......  usually confusion and lack of coherent information.

I'm not picking a fight here.   If there is other info that shows that leadership ordered te stand down knowing they were putting human life at risk for the sake of  a wolf, I'd like to see it.
