I was really surprised to see the estimated number over 2000 wolves in Minn. I am sure it is a low, conservative estimate. Here in Wyoming, the wolf topic is still pretty heated, but I don't hear about the wolves in Minnesota a whole lot. It is pretty far away. With that many wolves, and a more populated state and highly agricultural state, you'd think there would be a huge stink about it and they would raise the quotas. Idaho killed like 3/8 or something of the estimated population. I guess we are pretty lucky here, we don't have a metropolitan area that seems to vote things contrary to the rest of the state (Jackson is just big enough for a balance kindof) . That is just coffee shop talk I have heard. It seems like the greater Denver area does that, and Seattle, too. That is probably a can of worms that should have the lid left on.
I have never looked into hunting out there in Minn., but it looks like there could be some good opportunities. I have some family is western Maryland and Penn. where the deer are thick as rabbits. Do the wolves help control the deer populations pretty well in Minn.?
