Shocker. :yike:
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

For the wolf, they are tough and stringy, not really worth the trouble unless things are really tough.  Have not found a deer for a week and no bison here, is it tough yet?

Bison are tough in more ways than one. There'll be a few dead wolves after attempts at subduing Bison. The wolves will kill some for sure but at what cost. There's a reason the North American continent was awash in Bison, 60 million from Southern Texas to Northern Saskatchewan in the beginning of the 1800s. If the Elk and Deer are few and far between now and the wolves aren't willing to leave the serenity of their protected lifestyle, then let the ebb begin. Sad that it's taken this long and so many animals were wasted.
 The epitome of Pathetic; forgetting the lessons of the past and having to live and learn them all over again.

Since buffalo are hard for the wolves to take down they will have to supplement the wolves winter feed by shooting buffalo for them. Just wait...   Soon Yellowstone will be nothing but water features and mangy dogs trying to attack people who get out of their vehicle...SMH

Talk about irony! Raffle off the chance to shoot a buffalo so the wolves can be fed.

No different than NE Washington.
Most don't realize that moose hunting will be gone soon and all your points will be worthless.
Deer and elk will go to permit only,the only place you'll find a deer or elk is in someone backyard.
Where wolves won't go.

Not every place is a biodiversity/natural habitat as Yellowstone, although seems as if many people in Washington are trying to go that direction.

It's interesting, on the mountain in the central part of Okanogan county that I've been hunting since 92. We went from seeing on average 15 Mule deer, 3 to 5 Whitetails per day and no Moose whatsoever during the early years to seeing at most a dozen Mule deer, no Whitetails whatsoever and 2 to 3 Moose in an entire season over the last few years. Based on the sign, it's possible that there's a few more deer than what the few daytime sightings indicate but the few deer that are there, have all changed their behavior to where seeing them during the daylight hours is just a fluke. All of the tried and true places to sit at dawn and the last hour of daylight that produced opportunities for years have became really nice quiet places to relax before going back to camp to cook dinner. The one new situation that's really nice is the "guard dogs" that roam the outskirts of camp most nights, howling and carrying on so nothing will mess with you while you're trying to sleep.
 It's too bad I don't have a better poker face. I just don't think I can pull off with a straight face, no really ma'am, when it came through the trees, I totally thought that thing was a really big Mule deer.
