    They need to take at least another 25 out of there to make a difference.

    If they took all of them out it would take a long time for Lolo to recover to even 1/2 what it was. Still atleast F&G is stepping in and killing some of them.

    What a difficult and frustrating subject, I am no expert but at the rate of each breeding pair having 4-7 pups a year I think we are losing the battle. Like you said MM at least they are doing something but is that just a front to try and keep us at bay or is it an honest effort? They killed only 25 wolves in the previous 5 actions and they killed 23 this go-round, hmmm. They better keep loading...

    Killing 25 wolves is not as easy as it sounds. Lolo is rugged country with lots of timber and places to hide and Im sure the wolves figure out whats going on pretty fast. 40 wolves total were taken last year and there are probably more they dont know about so thats probably not to bad, its just 15 years to late.....

    That makes sense MM, like I said I am no expert on the issue but I do know it is extremely political and we all know how those things go. Do you feel Idaho is good at management? I have had a few experiences there as far as dealing with there biologist and I found some of the info when I got boots on the ground to be inaccurate and also ran across a few bitter resident hunters when you talk about game and fish there. I know you can get that anywhere but it seems like there are a decent number of states much better at management. I have and will continue to hunt there but just curious on your thoughts or experience??

    I think the biggest problem is F&G had their hands tied for so long with the wolves on the endangered list and they couldnt start to manage them at the right time and I think they have been blamed for alot of things they had no control over. They have made some fairly aggressive moves to control wolves since they have been off the endangered list but every time they do anything there are a bunch of lawsuits and I think they want to do more but are also worried about them getting back on the endangered list if they get to aggressive too. So basically there hands are still tied, just not as tight as they were.
