Poison is a straight up dumb idea. And bringing the population back down to the minimum to keep it off of the ESA does not sound like an option or intent. When people say 1500 and 150. The press just read between the lines to say 90%, it makes for a splashier headline.

Liberal seasons, bag limits for both trapping and hunting should be employed.

People get offended at nothing at all. So, speak your mind and be unapologetic.

Ranchers, hunters, trappers and everyone else.

Hunting elk there were traps literally everywhere, one of my hunting buddies stepped in one, very well traveled area with lots of people and still I seen wolves numerous times.

Trapping is actually counterproductive as everyone is trapping, not doing it right, and making it harder for all.

People shooting wolves drove them more nocturnal and they hold tighter to denser cover.

I've always said hunting, sss, trapping cumulatively isn't going to be enough. It's going to take state action and things like poison and shooting from helos, seems I'm proving right.  If Idaho couldn't do it, WA is screwed.

In the newsletter from the Idaho State Representative in my district:

The last few days the Senate passed S 1211 which is a bill that provides more tools to help control the wolf population.  Most Idahoans believe that we have too many wolves.  The current population is estimated is 1750 wolves and that population is growing by about 30% per year.  Governor signed S 1211 on May 6th.  The State has been criticized for this new bill by many groups.  Newspaper articles have stated that we are trying to reduce the population by 90%.  This is not true, but we didnít handle the public relations of the new bill as well as we should have.  The wolf plan that was written in 2002 called for Idaho to have 150 wolves and the wolf lovers are using this number to install fear in the general public about this new legislation.  The goal is to stabilize the population.  No one wants to see the wolves relisted as endangered species.

They already have:

https://www.foundationforwildlifemanagement.org/

Which I'm a donor and member that is compensating trappers and hunters up to I think $1000 per wolf.


The cool thing is they're increasing the "bounty" in targeted zones of heavier wolf impact zones.
