When you talk of aerial hunting the bill will be dead on arrival. Even in Alaska it is unpopular. Expanding hunting seasons and more importantly trapping opportunities will fly under the radar and do the job.

A low cost trapping opportunity for out of state trappers would be a win-win for the state.
Im curious to see where this goes.  Expanded hunting and trapping will do nothing to curb wolves.  You you have to kill 50-75% of the population each year just to maintain! No way to do that without arial gunning.

Idaho expands wolf harvest opportunities almost every year at this point. Itís helping and by making little adjustments every year they have been able to fly under the radar and avoid lawsuits. They took the anti playbook and used it. Move the ball a few yards at a time when they make a drastic adjustment they were getting sued constantly initially. We went from 1 or 2 tags to 30 tags where I live a little at a time over time.
The hunting and trapping has helped the deer and elk out quite a bit already at least Iím noticing a difference. Maybe itís time to include aerial hunting? Iím not sure seems like wolf lovers would go ballistic but it would be great to get it through. Poison won the wolf war back in the day but that will never happen. Plus poison kills everything and thatís not a great plan if you enjoy bear hunting etc.

Yes, poison was the ticket and it still took a very long time and a pile of money, I think it started about 1915.  Still in the tool box today for government agencies.  You might check the stats in the great lakes region of the USA and Alberta
