I hope only Recovered Wolves are counted. Afterall a gutshot wolf due to improper bullet placement should not be counted...or one too far away to actually locate after the shot really may have been grazed and go on to a full and productive life...who can tell!
oops hijack was completely unintentional...... sorry.....
No apology needed, I'm just glad folks are finding ways to stay connected to this issue. I get afraid now that delisting has occurred, the mind set will become "well we won that one" time to hoist a few and celebrate. Weigh in anytime!
Location: Sagauache County, Co...3170 sq miles, not a single stop light!
Re: Wolf scoreboard.
here's the note i sent them:
"As a longtime hunter and conservationist, i urge you to do the right thing for the truly endangered species here, the Rocky Mtn Elk. The canadian grey wolves that were transplanted in Yellowstone Park and then immediately left, are decimating our herds. The populations of elk in montana , wyoming and idaho are at 10% of their numbers since before the introduction of wolves and wolves are now attacking livestock, pets and even people. The usfws told us before the transplant that the target goal was for 2-300 animals in yellowstone park, but there are over 5000 now in the three states i mentioned. The only sensible policy to have for wolves is an open season, shoot on site policy anywhere outside the park. Please do the right thing before it is to late too save our game populations.
