    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:

    I don't live in wolf country, but if I did, I would regularly apply the 3 S rule.


    SHOOT

    SHOVEL

    SHUT UP

    maybe wrong,but a solution never the less. 308

    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 )

    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.:rolleyes: 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.

    Well some wolves makes sense. We seem to have to many in several areas now.

    That would have been a very nerve racking walk out for me.............

    I would not have one arrow left in my quiver, if I was lucky I could pick up some used ones and recycle..........That would make the tree huggers happy?????

    This was the fourth wolf I've killed, and by far the biggest. We figured him for over 150 lbs.
