    i feel all wolves should be viewed as game animals hunt them in numbers that will keep them in check but not like they were at the turn of the century good poll too MR R

    Depends on what the population is like. If the numbers need to controled, I would say that's fine.

    I love to hunt and always have, but i don't consider myself a trophy hunter. I love being in the woods, and refuse to shoot any animal that I'm not going to eat, to me it is a waste to kill an animal for the hide or head. Please don't misunderstand me i have no quarrell, with trophy hunters, its just that some critters id rather shoot with a camera. My Grandfather taught me to hunt and trap when i was a youg boy, and his values became mine, pickled opposum aint bad when your hungry.

    last nights news just north of green bay, wi- some horses were attacked by wolves. The herd has grown in large number due to the milder winters. They are a good thing in the sense that they help control the deer herd too. This year approx 750k deer were taken from Wisconsin woods. That didnt make a dent in the over all herd population. there are always new dead deer from car accidents around here.

    It really depends on what the states decide to do.

    Removing Federal protection doesn't automatically mean open season on wolves.

    I don't know that much about wolves, but if coyotes are any indicator, moderate hunting pressure won't hurt them.

    It said that each state involved would be required to carry no less than100 wolves ,including 10 breeding pairs, or the animal would once again go on the protected list. We'll see. May be too late by then.

    There is a very good article in Outdoor Life this month on the wolf issue. The numbers have surpassed all expectations and are causing damage to ranchers and affecting deer and elk populations. I think hunting should be allowed.

    I think that about sums up my attitude also.
    I do think hunting to control predation is a good method of conservation.
    It instills a healthy fear of man into predators and helps keep them wary of what they might otherwise view as prey.
