I'd say there isn't a wolf problem. Its all a matter of perception. I prefer to think of the benefit to the states lands that are reaped by having wolves running its forests and fields. Wolves kill livestock and they'll slam your dogs, that is no doubt, but they also control yotes and foxes, maintain deer moose and elk herds, increase the number of upland game birds and waterfowl by killing and eating nest predators and help reduce erosion from hoofstock which would otherwise reduce stream quality in trout waters.

I'd be angrier than you can imagine if my Walker got nailed by a wolf on a hunt, but you can be darn sure I'd still support the DNR and their decision to keep em.

Yea, but they'd be saying it out of some misguided bambi syndrome emotional argument. I say it as an outdoorsman and wildlife manager.

yup, i'd have to agree with this. Maintain Deer and Moose populations? Why not allow man to harvest more? Open up on the yotes and other nuisance animals. I don't want the wolves to go away but to give them too much protection doesn't make sense.
And no pun intended, but this guy seems like he may be a "wolf in sheep's clothing".

Hah, come on, you guys are killing me here. Wolf in sheep's clothing, I kind of like that. Seriously though, There is a big difference between being able to recognize the benefits of top down predation by reintroduced wolves or thinking there should be total protection on wolves or no wolves at all. I've got friends working in the National Park Service right now doing predation studies on wolves, folks that spend all day following packs in weather 90+ to -30, categorizing carcasses and sawing open femurs on kills to look at how healthy the animal was before it died by looking at the marrow. I think they're great animals to have in a place that can support them, there aren't many places that can though, not indefinitely. Not even the Appalachians, and I've seen the reports on that myself.

You've gotta understand though that decisions in wildlife management aren't made without good reason. Now I could take the bait here and try and argue this or argue that and folks could keep on with this "treehugger" business, I've been called worse, but I won't. What I will do is gladly talk to you via pm if you'd like to talk more about wildlife management. As far as I'm concerned, the more people that understand wildlife management the better. Would give me a chance to hear from other folks about what they see and understand about the wildlife and woods they hunt too.

And if you wanna give me an earful, well, now is the time. I'll listen.

a friend of mine who is into this sort of thing ( Federal Parks Naturalist) would tell us that the presence of top tier predators like Wolves, who weed out the sick and weak from herds, create healthier populations and will actually increase the number of healthy animals.
thus increasing the available animals to hunt.
I think what was meant here is that the presence of wolves might actually benefit the human hunt.
I am not a scientist tho...just passing along what I have been told by those who are.

If I am asked to make a choice between my dog and a wolf...the wolf looses.

Just a question here but how many dogs actually get killed by wolves? I would think more would be killed by bear or big cats. What about cars? should we get rid of them too? just a few things to think about.
