Well, Bill Smith, you stated some of the reasons why he should be harassed yourself. I personally wouldn't waste my time on harassing him as it doesn't bring the Wolf back. What I object to is him using a coyote call and then being so proud of himself that he went public. This is a pro-Wolf website so that is why you hear the hate right now. Just because something is legal doesn't make it right. I firmly believe that Wolves do not need "managment" or "control" and especially from those that HATE them. What I don't understand is, I don't go to Anti-Wolf websites because it's like talking to a WALL so why would they think it's okay to come here and spout off anti-Wolf sentiments? There are been some pretty hateful things being said from both sides. If you are coming just to flame, then please just go away. If you want to discuss civilly and politely without being cynical, then do just that.
I do believe I was being polite.
I'm sorry right or wrong is a judgement but currently it is legal. The hunter did not come to your wolf site to spout off anti-wolf sentiment, Chris brought him on for the hatred. As far as using a call, many hunting styles use calls, duck, goose, deer, elk, coyote, etc. I find nothing wrong with this. I do believe he may have been illegal in using the call per Idaho wolf hunting rules. I was surprised he said he used one.
Did he go public or was it unfortunate that he killed and registered the first wolf. I'm sure the reporters are all over this situation.
I firmly believe that wolves do need management and I also believe that the interior department and the state biologists are making the right call. We should utilize their experience and knowledge.
You have made very good points sir. I respect your opinion very much. You seem very educated on the wolves and the wolve sitution. It is pointless to try and agrue a point with these yuppies, the look at the wolves with their rose pedal glasses, and don't see the true dark side to these murders. go ahead and check out this website..www.saveelk.com, if you are so knowledgeable about your non-native Canadian Grey Wolves, and explain some of those pictures to me. Oh and by the way, the man that killed the first wolf, did everything by the book. He used a mouth coyote call, which is totally legal. You can't use electronic calls.
To you wolve lover Chris..get your facts straight also before you pipe off about a sitution that you nothing about. Read this story, then maybe you'll have a few facts straight. All the sheep killed on this ranch, were all bucks. All killed on private land. Ya why should you and all the other wolve loving yuppies repay this rancher back for his loss. His sheep were on his private land grazing on the grass that he pays taxes on to grow. These wolves were shoved down his and mines throw, by you enviro yuppies. They aren't even native to this area, they are CANADIAN, i'm not CANADIAN...so ya why shouldn't you and SUZANNE STONE pay him back...and by the way..I'd like to see hard hard evidence of a bear or a mountain lion, murdering hundreds of animals like SUZANNE so knowledgably says they do..what a crock. Bears and lions actually consume what they kill, they don't kill for sport. Or should I say murder, as wolves do...
You are really wigging out. Look again, I said this,
"The bucks were on private land. The ewes of this ranch btw graze on public land."
The whole article has already been posted. I see you're skirting around the other information.
Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation shows all elk populations increased in the NRM region.
FOR LAKOTA..OMEGA WOLF
