By Funding Trophy Wolf Hunts, We’re Destroying Real Game Hunts

*Editor’s Note* – This post first appeared on this website on October 8, 2014. It was requested of me to republish it as a means of updating the importance of the article as a prediction of the future. It seems just a short while ago that wolf (re)introduction happened – 1995 and 1996. A lot […]

Will Michigan Make The Same Mistake and Designate Wolves as a “Game” Species?

It appears that, despite the Courts blocking of all efforts to implement management of wolves in Michigan, the state rule makers are moving forward bills that would designate the wolf as a game species, setting the stage for a controlled wolf hunt, should the Federal Government ever decide to remove the gray wolf from the […]

Obama Says Kill Wolves?

The 2016 presidential election, which also combines with elections in Congress, is not that far away… that is if you watch the array of idiots vying for a hand-up on the others for the nomination.

Nothing good will come of this, unless escalating the division and angst between consumptive users managing wild carnivores for the preservation of consumptive use and people that are simply anti hunting/anti […]

Wolf Management(?) Nonsense

Why? “the proposed harvest aims to reduce the state’s […]

That’s only five more wolves than the prior year’s wolf harvest despite extending the rifle season by a month and a half, lifting the quotas on the animals across most of the state and […]

Idaho Wolf Management a Proven Failure

It was January 21, 2009 when I wrote: “….for hunting wolves, should the day ever come to pass, will be inadequate to control wolf populations.” I was no prophet at that time. My conclusions were based on scores of studies, real life accounts, books, research and common sense. It first must be said that many, […]
