Why are they so successful hunting/trapping them?

When out west itís much harder.

Because they haven't been hunted and trapped there before. I guarantee that will change in a few years, wolves are incredibly smart.  :twocents:

A couple questions I always wondered when they were killed off. Was there a bounty on them? What was the reason we decided to kill them a longtime ago was it they were killing our food, hurting/killing people? Back then we trapped, hunted, and poisoned them it seems we were pretty successful back then at wiping them out. I have never been able to find any old history on it

If the estimate is correct at 1000, taking 178 will do nothing for population control. If the objective truly is 350 they should have set the mark at 500 at least. Leaving 800 to breed they will be right back up to 1000 in no time.

I believe the reason for that many killed is there are A LOT of them and they are more concentrated.  That's what I would think. They haven't been hunted in a while, but there has been hunts for them.  My buddy and one of my brothers drew tags in 2014 or so.  Neither of them filled the tags because the quotas were small and met in a day or 2 if I recall.  I am near positive I seen one back in the early to mid 80's near Ogema.  They outlawed shooting coyotes during the deer season right about that point to protect the wolves.

The PBS version is far from complete, check APHIS records, spent millions to destroy them and now hundreds of millions to bring them back.  A hunt in Wisconsin is a far cry from the Wedge experience, scads of wolves and people.  Check stats, hunting is a big deal in the midwest.  Wisconsin sells more than 10x the deer tags WA sells.

Half the tags (or so) go to the tribes and they don't hunt them as they are sacred.  Or something like that.  So the real quota is much less.  The wolves came back on their own for the most part there.  Migrated in from Canada and through Minnesota from what I know.  The distribution maps that the WI DNR puts out are somewhat of a joke.  I deer hunted at a buddy of mines place near Tomah and he has pictures of them there 10 years ago.

I mean they can also shoot something 3 or 4 deer a piece there too. Seen lots of bear and deer when in Northern Wisconsin. Never wolves though. Ill be honest and say I wasnt looking either. I have some family in wisconsin and I have been thinking about hunting there in the near future.
