    Setting aside all the hysteria from both sides, what are your personal observations on the impact wolves have had on big game hunting in the western states?

    Go down to the bow shop and shoot each brand. They will all feel a little bit different to each person. I like the Bow-Tech but some of my buddies prefer the Hoyt's or the Mathews. If you can't afford the best new off the shelf, get into either a Diamond or Mission. They are usually only about two or three year old technology and will save you a ton of money. Make sure the bow fits you. -G

    Ken...I've seen what they can do in Northern MN, while bear hunting up there a few years ago...it's crazy! When they opened their season and said they didn't expect many kills, I knew they were way off their rocker...and I was right! They filled the quota in like 2 weeks!

    Guy,
    Alaska is about to undergo a hard look at sheep hunting allocations. What do you feel would be an appropriate resident to non-resident ratio for tag allocation? 90%-10% is being pushed by the residents.

    Thanks. My wife and I have been actively hunting predators ever since deer season closed. Lots of coyotes on the ground, but so far only wolf tracks.

    What is your preferred power on a spotting scope? Do you have a recommendation on a good lightweight tripod that isn't going to break the bank?

    That is a very good question, if I was a resident I would say 90/10 as a non-resident I think 60/40 is good. But in all honesty, I think an 80/20 split is probably the most fair to all sides. I think anything close to 90/10 is a bit stingy and anything beyond 70/30 is not really fair to the residents who live there and pay the taxes in that state. Just my personal opinion on that one. As a side note, it makes it pretty tough for the Departments to make their budgets work at 90/10 not to mention the outfitters get hit pretty hard at those percentages also. 80/20 all the way. -G
