Re: Any suggestions on hunting wolves in the canadian bush?
Where abouts in Manitoba were you hunting?
You're correct on the backwards hunting regs here... Non reisdents are only alowed to harvest one wolf and one yote on the big game tag they are hunting on... The wording is pretty vague in the manual but from how I read it you are allowed to Harvest one if u possess an unused big game tag
From the website....
Big Game Hunting
Gray Wolf and Coyote
Gray wolves and coyotes can be hunted under the authority of any big game licence, and as such, there are no tagging requirements. The hunterís big game licence number is all that is required to possess a wolf or coyote taken under the authority of that licence. Hunters are reminded that the tag affixed to a big game licence (bear, deer, moose, elk, or caribou) must be used for that big game species (bear, deer, moose, elk or caribou).
A resident may hunt gray wolves and coyotes during the wolf and coyote season if they possess any big game hunting licence for the current licence year. However, if hunting in a GHA while the area is open to deer, elk, moose, black bear or caribou hunting, the wolf or coyote hunter must have an unused deer, elk, moose, black bear or caribou game tag (personal or party), which is valid for that area, species and time period. Where the deer, elk, moose, black bear or caribou hunting seasons are closed, a resident may hunt wolves or coyotes provided he/she is in possession of a used or unused deer, elk, moose, black bear or caribou licence.
Non-resident and Foreign Resident
A non-resident and a foreign resident may hunt gray wolves and coyotes during the wolf and coyote season only if they possess an unused deer, moose, black bear or caribou game tag (personal or party), which is valid for that area, species and time period.
Foreign resident gray wolf and coyote hunters must be accompanied by a licensed Manitoba guide. No more than three hunters may use the services of a guide at the same time.
Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) export permits are required before transporting a gray wolf out of Canada.
I wish the the morons in charge the department of conservation of this province would remove their heads from their a$$es, realize that the wolf and coyote populations are getting out of hand and let us do something about it! Instead of letting deer population get wiped out then let the predators slowly die of starvation and mange...
Sometimes it seems like the CO's are more concerned with stopping guys from hunting then doing what they should be doing, ensuring a healthy/stable population in our game animals....
Sorry for the long post.... Rant off....
