    we tried shooting and trapping wolves during that winter to, many were killed but a few pissed off ranchers wasn't really doing much for predator control, that and everybody focused on the wolves and totally ignored the packs of coyotes killing deer in the hay fields and the and the huge amounts of deer being killed by cougars. When the snow gets deep and and theres a crust on it, coyotes and lynx become big time deer killers.

    cool, just as with wild anadramous fish, we need to stand back and let the natural balance of things work itself out. wolf hunting is stupid, thanks congress for taking over game management. the only ones who will complain are the ranchers who want to continue overgrazing our land for next to no fee.

    I've read about a pack in the norther area of Yellowstone that is known to go after Bison for the kill leaving most of the carcass. Dogs are smart and when they pack up its like a gang, that's why they say "pack mentality".

    Should let it go back to the way it was before man came. Lets stop stocking steelhead, salmon and shut down the recreational fishing season permanently for these species. ( The tribes can still net of course). Stop the pike minnow program. Stop the fishing of all endangered cutthroats and rainbows on rivers in Montana, ID WY, WA. Stop guiding because guiding puts undue stress on these endangered fish.

    Let it all go back to the natural way

    Let's poison and remove all of the of non native invasive species like brown trout, pheasants and chukar too while we're at it.

    The natural balance will work things out

    FYI, we have 6.6 million people here in a state that's something like 1/5 the size of B.C. With the habitat loss, roadkill, and hunting, this isn't the same ecosystem where deer, elk, and wolves all lived together for thousands of years.

    As stupid as you are trying to make it sound, you are actually dead on. Remove mankind as an immensely over populated predator and nature wouldn't miss us in the least and would return to a state of equilibrium in no time. Oh, that's right..the natural world is just here for your enjoyment and harvest!

    It's sort of like the budget vs. national debt issue in DC: Everyone wants government spending to be cut, as long as it's not the program(s) they depend on.

    "I like wild steelhead because it's fun to fish for them. But don't let wild wolves into my valley because it will ruin my elk hunting and ranching".

    Using that logic, who is the pest that deserves to be eradicated??

    Shoot and kill one species so you can better the population of another species that you are going to kill? I'm sick of all the bull trout eating the other fish so people should start killing them. Then we would all have a lot more fish to kill and eat.. Doesn't sound right does it.

    Like it or not, so are the wolves....unless we decide to wipe out another species.
