Re: Just In: "The Truth About Wolves in the West"
I live in Virginia where we now have an elk heard migrant from the state of Kentucky...I wonder if we'll have wolves "migrated" from elsewhere in the country soon. I have not yet had the opportunity to hunt on the herd, but hope to soon.
Seriously, I am also of the opinion that the predator population needs to be checked just as the game population does, so there's nothing less than COMPLETE BALANCE in the environment. As PJ O'Rourke once said, "Politics is a lousy way to get things done." But unfortunately that's what rules the day in many places, particularly where the National Parks are located. Teddy Roosevelt, one of our greatest wildlife conservationists, a serious hunter and IMHO a helluva president, would be turning in his grave now.
