I attended the meeting at Cowlitz expo this evening ,and WDFWs wolf expert was there.She revealed that on May 1 st she will make the announcement,about there plans.i ask what the WDFW s budget was for wolfs,she didn't know but said she would call me and let me know.Also the number of wolfs in the state surprised me ,and I don't want them where I'm hunting,there's already a preditor problem in the state.

I love it how they can't answer a question head on at these meetings.  When Cindy Lefleur was in charge, I don't think she was able to answer about 20 questions at a fishing meeting.

She said that their will be an Environmental Impact Study on translocation of wolves (moving wolves from east to west side).  The scoping part of the EIS will begin May 1.  According to her, the legislature and the wolf management plan directed that if the current situation (wolves concentrated in one part of state--not in other parts) develops, translocation must be studied...but don't worry, wolves really don't hurt populations of deer/elk/moose overall...just in localized areas...

Such a terrible idea to help them spread.   :yike: :bdid:

We need to be suppressing them, not helping them infest the entire West!   :bash:

It's basically what she said: there are still tons of elk in the Rockies and any impacts are 're-balancing' the previous overpopulation of elk such as at Yellowstone.  Population declines due to wolves are localized.

We all know they cant hear us screaming in the north east corner, in Olympia......Plan is, the screaming from the west side will be much louder and just maybe something will get done.  As with everything in this state, if it doesnt happen on the west side, it simply isnt happening.

I'm not sure how people can think this is going to make a difference to NE WA. You should know the first place they will look at moving them is the Olympic Peninsula or possibly Mt St Helens. I get you want Seattle to feel your pain but they will never see any wolves. This is exactly what the predator loving groups have been clamoring for. I'm not seeing any positives to this.

" 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

MISERY LOVES COMPANY :chuckle: :chuckle:
You all know there has to be so many breeding pairs on both sides of state .Yet when it is affecting you or wet side of the state.You have a problem.Honest I don't care where they move them , just get them out of NE Washington..One less wolf in NE Washington benefits us.The way I hear a few of you crying right now tells me the voice against wolves will be louder when wolves hit the wet side.
Two birds in the Bush is always better than one in the hand-that way you can always go to the Bush and hunt another day .conservation=Better hunting.
