    Worst hunt I ever had hunting elk in the Frank Church. Wolves, Wolves, Wolves. There should be a bounty, not a fee.

    Wolves are a very smart animal and the more human presence they see and hear the harder it will be to cut their numbers down in many areas where they need to take out a lot of them. The two legal ways being used are aerial gunning where the terrain allows along with trapping. Relying on regular hunting will not get it done by itself as they are too smart and the terrain in many areas is not hospitable to have a good chance. The most effective way to cut numbers way down is obviously poisoning and we all know that will never be used again legally.

    Elk in Frank Church have been hit hard by wolves. There can still be decent hunting there but its not like it used to be at all.

    MM, I agree with you. The G & F couldn't do much with them listed. At least they are trying to fix the situation now that they can. If you want to blame someone look elsewhere, like the 9th Circuit of appeals and the eco-terrorist groups.

    I think the biggest problem to all of this, is the ability of these special interest groups to sue the feds with tax payers dollars and then recoup the lawyer fee's via the Federal Government. In a nutshell there getting paid by the Federal Government to sue the Federal or State Government. If you think I'm joking look it up, they've been talking about abolishing this law in the House and Senate the last month, but the Lib's are having a royal panty throwing fit over it. We did a big study on it when I was an undergrad in the Natural Resources Dept @ USU, it was insane the amount of money that was being forked out to these special interest groups by us to sue the Fed's.

    Wyoming Congress person Cynthia Lummis is proposing a bill to eliminate federal funds to anti-organizations who have the assets to pay their own way in the courts.

    The key word in your statement about the poisoning is LEGALLY..
