Allow Air gunning for Wolves rather than further reduce Hunter opportunity.


Best idea yet  :tup:

Itís a good idea but with the cost to operate a helicopter itís probably not going to happen unless F&G funded it.

Me and many other hunters Iím sure would pay for helicopters to be allowed to kill wolves that way. They just need to make it legal for regular hunters so hunters will fund it. Quit wasting money on for hire so called sharp shooter or worse yet government employees

I think most guys out there cant shoot worth a damn off a bench.  Last thing i want is idiots shooting out of a chopper when im in the woods.

No, not a chance.  But a terrible idea nonetheless.

We hunted coyotes out of a helicopter for Pine Valley ranch some years ago.  Used shotguns with #4 or 00 buck.  Didn't put any people's lives in danger.  We did kill somewhere around 70 coyotes over two days though.  Our pilot was a former military copter pilot and was amazing.

Exactly.  There's more people who take the doors off ultra-lights and go shooting than most people realize.   Check out YouTube for the videos of people shooting hogs this way in Texas.  I guarantee my pilot buddies and and I would bad some wolves with our ARs.  :twocents:

One difference between the coyote example and the hog hunting example compared to doing it for wolfs. Thatís public land vs private land. Itís a lot easier on private land to ensure nobody else is in the area. Trapping can be fairly effective for wolfs once guys get it dialed in right.

Youíre all a bunch of woosies  :chuckle: itís a great idea and it could be relatively short season maybe like all of March. That way if youíre scared you can stay out of the woods that month ha ha. I actually think it wouldnít be any scarier than half the guys up here packing loaded rifles in the super thick brush. Also making private land only is very doable but unnecessary they already do that with the year around hunting season. I have had buddies do the hog and coyote thing nobody died but a lot of hogs and coyotes did.

Most effective but I disgree kills everything bears etc and hunting dogs. Guys are bootlegging the poison over here already I think thatís how one of my best hounds died. I know for a fact it killed my buddy s hound. It would devastate any predator as much as I hate wolves itís not the answer. I appreciate where youíre coming from and thatís how they originally got rid of them

Yep the Helicopter gunning is much better option. Poisoning them we will kill every predator, Pet and bird in the county. Then itís basically  equivalent to a abandoned crab pot that continues to ghost fish. Poison concentrates in the dead animal and eaten by another, that animal dies and is eaten by another, that animal dies and is eaten by another, etc. etc. etc.

Thatís collateral damage. I know it ends up effecting a lot more than just the wolfs but thatís the price weíd have to pay to eliminate them. I know itíll never happen though so itís all just for discussion.

But you said you'd prefer it to Air gunning  :dunno:
You know Canada and Alaska have done fairly extensive helicopter gunning for Wolves with great success?  Air gunning is a viable option that ought to be on the table.  Would be super successful in some of the major wilderness areas in Central Idaho.
