Re: Whooo Hoooo - Woof season starts!

Roy, glad you made it back to God's country. I am looking foward to your hunting exploits for woof and other critters. It just doesn't seem right for someone named royinidaho to be in New Mexico. Dont forget to put your location stamp back to the correct location now. Welcome home!

Jim

Re: Whooo Hoooo - Woof season starts!

Well, I picked up my first copy of the wolf regs and was real disappointed to see the low quotas. I was also disappointed to see the season start in mid Sept which is prime rut season for elk and wolf pelts will be pretty poor. My guess is the quota will be met fairly quick. Ya think they would figure these things out. Wolf season should start in Dec and last until Mar and the quota should be a lot higher. Dont know why they are chrging $20 for a tag either. IMO, that's gouging. So I think I'll save my $20 this year and see how the hunt goes, if the judge doesn't stop it of course.

If it sounds like I'm venting, that's cause I am...

Re: Whooo Hoooo - Woof season starts!

The Sept. date is in a few wilderness areas only the general opens on Oct. 25, I'm hoping they will be primed up by then. They will put on an extended season on in Dec. but the quota is lowered.
I wish you could get a second tag after shooting your first one, that way the guys who can kill them can kill more.
It will be interesting to see how the quota is filled, Idaho is not filling very fast, and some of the packs here have been shot enough already that they move mostly at night and stay well out of range, some of the ranchers here have had long range rifles built so they have already been educated on that.

Re: Whooo Hoooo - Woof season starts!

Did anyone else hear about the 120 rams that were killed near Dillon a week ago?

Wolves kill 120 sheep at ranch near Dillon

A whopping 75 wolf quota? Gimme a freakin' break.

Re: Whooo Hoooo - Woof season starts!

Good article, but they find the pack and only kill one adult?

That 120 sheep were just a training excersise for the yearling wolfs on how to kill. The person in the article who never heard of that happening must have just got out of 9th grade biology to be that wet behind the ears.

They say Montana only has 500 wolves. Hell the dog runners in WI kill half that many every year, and we are still overrun.

The quota only gets filled if you report you killed a wolf, I think you guys should practice like those pups before your good enough to take one home.

Hmmmm.... Ya know.... maybe I'll just get me a wolf tag and backpack back into the Beartooths with a wolf tag and elk tag. I am way behind on backpacking this year and with two tags to fill, I know a couple of good spots for wolves and elk near the Park.... and if I have my 300 RUM online by then, I could reach out and touch something.
