    Best solution is to exterminate them by all available methods! Hunting, trapping, poisoning, aerial gunning, bounties, introduce parvo, whatever has to be done. We eliminated them once before and it can be done again! All these wolfaboos can go see them in a zoo since its probably the only place 99.9% of them have ever seen a wolf anyways.

    A couple of interesting facts; In Alaska, when doing wolf control programs the target is to reduce the wolf population by 60-80%. If you don't attain that level of reduction it's going to be ineffective in increasing your ungulate herds.

    In one area, we had a pre-wolf control, wolf population of 350-410 wolves in the control area. The wolf control goes on over the winter/spring but stops in the summer/fall. This has gone on for several years and last fall the estimated wolf population was 338-373.

    So after years of hammering the wolves down over several winters, the population during the fall is down by 30 to 40. That's after aerial shooting, trapping and shooting. Packs can reproduce themselves over the summer and fall. You will probably have them forever.

    Thanks AK! That is what I have herd too and why I am not very optimistic about the hunting seasons here. The only reason the populations have somewhat stabilized down here is the wolves are at capacity and they are not very productive but the amount we have been killing is just enough to make them more productive and really we need to kill atleast 2 or 3 times as many every year as we have been to really make the difference our deer, elk, and moose need to be able to recover.

    At least most of the pigs are pretty good eating......wolves, I'd have to starving and even then I don't think so.

    I agree! Most of Idaho is open 8/30-3/31. So it is closed when I will be scouting for elk which kinda stinks. I think the idea is to not hunt them when they are having pups, which I think is one of the best times to kill them. I think the states are trying to make everyone happy instead of telling all these wolf lovers to shove it and doing whats really needed. I went to 1 of the hearings in MT and the way 'our side' was trying to tiptoe around everything I had to sit there in the court room for over a 1/2 hour to figure out which side was which......
