Wolves - These pictures will make you think...

These pictures will make you think...about bow hunting alone in wolf country.

Someone sent me these photos and the following anonymous comment about the bow hunter:

Quote:
OK, so you're a late season bow hunter in Minnesota , in your tree stand, and hear a commotion. You only brought your bow (in AK, you would of at least had a handgun!). Four hours and 40 pictures later you finally get you're chance to safely(?) depart. Seven wolves, one moose and one lucky hunter that he wasn't the main course!

That would make every crunch while walking to and from the stand...a nightmare.

I fully agree, I think its sad, the raw # of game in the Id,Mt,Wy, area that we lose daily to wolves, and for what ???????? Ron Tilley ( I still would have been on full alert while coming down the tree as well )

Re: Wolves - These pictures will make you think...

I do live in wolf and grizzly country. I used to pack a .454 cassull whenever I hunted the high country, but now instead of the possibility of a grizzly encounter, I have to consider the possibility of a PACK of wolves.

I usually have my nine year old son with me, so now I have a tac. style twelve gauge riding in my eberlestock pack to ease my worries. It can be a burden from time to time, but I think the option of only having a bow to defend myself could, in the end, be a bigger burden.

Looks like a sick week moose. Everyone knows that wolves only kill the weak animals that need to be culled for good heard health. This is much better than the management methods used by humans. Management based on science and sustainable healthy populations.

I am angry now.
