Wolf season now......Maybe
So in a positive state of my mind as I write this, I have a new twist on wolf management plan! As we all have an, ungulate (easily confused with unregulated) crisis getting worse, I have devised a plan and need some legal guidance.
To explain how I stumbled into this plan I will give a brief "non prejudice" explanation of a type of year around hunt we have in my area. There are several Native American tribes which, by treaty have a right to hunt this area, including Yellowstone Park. I have no opinion on this issue, but do wish they would not target our struggling elk and sheep herds anymore, and focus on bison. On the other hand the elk die every day at the jaws of an invasive species that "white man" brought here.
Through the research I have done, I have found that the Native Americans view the wolf with respect. So this plan may flop.
THE BIG PLAN
If any Native Americans would like a local person to; find, ride along with, or work his ass off in the game of gathering "Wolf Medicine". Then I will be the first to offer my "anything I can do".
I need advise on this issue because we have tribe members in this area and I see wolves almost every time I coyote hunt. Before I approach them I want to be prepared, and do not know if wolves are in the treaty? Historically there must have been wolves killed, and surely there must be a few Native Americans who want a wolf hide. I have horses getting fat and wolves roaming a plenty!
Ya gotta be tough when yer dumb!
