The good news about WA Wolves is when we finally get a chance to hunt and trap we will have a ton of knowledge learned from hunting them in Idaho first. It will give us a better start then what they had in Idaho the first year

It will be interesting when it comes to trapping and having to live trap them. Hunting? doubtful anytime soon

Boot hunting may be tougher than your call in lion.  Idaho has put some spook in them for sure.  Get after them and good luck!!!

wife and I are taking the trapping certification classes in ID this winter. Where I plan to start trapping and hoping to do my part in helping elk. A guy outta St Maries this year has already filled his 20 wolf tags trapping.

True story.
I'm surprised I've never heard them howling there.

This is where hunters need to take care of the problem.

Hunters would be a small and largely ineffective part of the solution. Rigorous trapping needs to be a key component of wolf management.

I'll be spending 4-5 nights starting Sunday in the back of my truck up the Lochsa. Hope the temps don't get too cold, but the snow on the ground and forecasted snow is promising for some good hunting.

Good luck and be safe!!

Wolf hunting, 20never.  Trapping, a couple years later.

My buddies uncle trapped 20 wolves this year in Idaho.  I'm signed up for a general trapping class in March.  Then I'll get wolf certified.  Hounds on the way for Idaho cats and bear hunts!    :)

Pianoman and Bango

Wishful thinking I guess. You guys are probably right. Even when the day comes, it will be lawsuits and such just like Wisconsin and Idaho and it gets pushed out over and over

Was in 12 last Sunday. Saw +/- 70 elk in the stretch of highway before daylight and 17 miles of ground I covered.

Saw lots more elk sign in the drainage I was set up and calling wolves in. Wolves were in that drainage less than a day before I went up there. Lots of wolf *censored* and tracks on the trails and ridges I walked. Less than 6" of snow on top of the ridges I was on. Hoping to get down there again in a few weeks once it snows so I can cover more ground on skis.
Those of you that know me can send a text or message on Instagram anytime. Politics may not make me want to be a part of Hunt Wa in 2020.
