What are you talking about!?!?! They aren't detrimental to the herds?? Wolves don't take down bull elk and mulie bucks? Don't forget they don't kill full grown bull moose or full grown health grizzly bears!!
The wolve don't kill healthy cattle either!
Wow what ever rock you've been under hasn't been turned over for a long ass time! The wolves have completely destroyed our Elk herds and mule deer herds and that includes healthy big bulls along with healthy mulie bucks. The last thing that the hunters would consider a god sent would be wolves!! To say wolves don't kill healthy elk and deer your out of your mind!!! Just take a second and read through some of the threads in the wolf section.
Where did you get your info on this I'm very curious!!
FYI!! Montana has nothing even close to what you are talking about. Montana is being over ran with the damn things!! And our wolves kill all things!!! ("Healthy")Moose, Elk, Deer, antelope, bear!!! I miss anything??
Well isn't that cute... These wolves are walking our elk for us!!

They pick off the slow, sick, and weak. Last year I can't count how many hunters in Wisconsin I heard in the bar complaining about the wolves and their effect on deer hunting. It's estimated that the wolf population in Wisconsin takes anywhere from 10-30,000 deer a year. With a population well over a million I'd say that the impact is negligable. More are killed by cars than other predators. I'd imagine that the situation is similar in MT. As for the political issues... I'd gladly trade Illinois politicians for Montana politicians.
