    Sorry bud, but I really don't agree with your statement that I will have to work a bit harder. I live in SW Colorado and roam the mts where there are literally 1000's of elk & deer....and oh yes...no wolves. I know how the act and react. I also have hunted Wyoming in the areas where there are lots of wolves. The elk & deer are really very different in their habits. 25 or 30 years ago there were no wolves even close to the numbers that are there now. IMHO it is criminal how the endangered Species Act was used to introduce Canadian & Alaskan wolves here. We can agree to disagree, but the deer, elk and moose numbers are what suffers.

    Right you are Colorado Cowboy, I used to hunt Grand Teton National Park untill wolves decimated the elk herd. Where they used to issue thousands of elk tags, it's reduced to a handfull now. I quit hunting the park in 1999, when I started seeing more wolf tracks than Elk, Moose & Deer tracks. It's a crying shame what the Clinton Gang did back in 1995, releasing a Canadian invasive species on United States Sportspeople.

    Just to clarify, I never said that the populations stay the same when the wolves move in. I'm not a wolf lover or an earth guardian and I didn't come on this forum to spend hours going back and forth about the wolves. I was just stating a fact that elk are still vocal in wolf country.

    At our local RMEF dinner this year an outfitter in the Gardiner,Mt area donated a hunt for the live auction but it had a reserve on it. Now this is in PA. They could not even get the price up to the reserve so it did not go. Even PA. hunters know how the wolves have affected the elk. I feel sorry for the people trying to make a living in the outdoors where wolves are present.

    That's funny, the bull I bugled in and killed this year didn't seem to mind... maybe I was just in his escape route.

    It seems like the rut has shifted later. I am hearing bulls bugling in mid october and yes we have wolves.

    I'll never understand why folks think the wolves here now are what were here and it absolutely annoys me that the Parks up there are in the business of pimping out all the wolf merchandise.
