Idaho to kill 90 percent of wolves
« on: May 08, 2021, 12:45:45 PM »
Not sure if I posted this in the right place and surprised this hasnít been posted yet if it hasnít. Iím all for it! Would be great if more western states followed suit.

I sure hope this is real!!!!!  Can you imagine!!! The turn around in elk/deer populations should be dramatic if they kill 90%!

 Guess someone realized they will make a lot more money on deer and elk tags than they do wolf.  Who knew!?   :dunno:

Finally we have people with common sense taking real action! I scoff at the article overall as itís obviously agenda driven. I think most hunters and outdoorsmen can see past the rhetorics and agree with this bill. Wish WA and OR would grow some nuts and do the same. I think wolves have their place in our chain of wildlife but so far it has been so obviously mismanaged. Good on Idaho for taking this on!

...and in the mean time here in wa they say the wolf population has gone up 24%.  We are heading the opposite direction and we may never have a gov in the future to take such action.

This is at least the 4th thread about it. I'd love to see the wolves thinned out but there are lots of downsides to this bill

Sorry I didnít see the other threads. I did a quick search for wolf/wolves Idaho and didnít see anything recent so assumed it hadnít been posted. Guess I didnít do a thorough search. Surprised that hasnít gotten more traction. Everyone is so caught up in Covid talk I guess.

The bill opens the door to poison, among other things.  I work out in those lands, often with my dog in tow (or rather, bounding ahead of me).  I appreciate the need to manage wolves, but poison is a terrible choice due to potential for impacts on non-target species (and it's just a nasty way to kill creatures, in my opinion).

Great grand dads used poison...  I trust in their knowledge, not ours.  It sucks but works.
MAGA!  Again..

Poison is a great management tool but I can see the concerns, also the ease in which the antis can cause fear and doubts as to its use.

I would hope that lots of signage, public info statements and limited to remote areas hardest hit by wolves would limit the risks.

Also keep in mind lot's of wolves all over are also a big risk to your K9 friends.


I suspect this is m44 cyanide "bombs" as NYtimes likes to say.

Can't read that article. Is there any other articles that talk about this?

I think I already had one of my hounds poisoned by some one trying to poison wolves illegally. Poison will kill all bears lions and other predators in the area. Idaho doesnít need less lions or bears we just need less wolves.  Poison is super effective but I think itís a terrible idea I hope it doesnít go there
