The only man who never makes a mistake, is the man who never does anything!!
The further one goes into the wilderness, the greater the attraction of its lonely freedom.

Four years out from collaring, results?  Management changes?  Budget?  UW reports?

It doesn't seem that they summarize and of the different studies like the Predators effect on the Ungulates. There's a 290+ report for that on this page. I don't have the time to read thru it or come to a conclusion.

Thanks, interesting stuff if you can wade through it.  A couple of common themes, humans did it and we need more predators.  Costs of these studies are not explored and use by the WDFW is unknown.  On a side note WSU seems to have treated wildlife biology field study much like the PAC 12 (2), shrinking on shaky ground.  Would love to see and read research to change my opinion
