Hooray for Congress!!
 
Congress has taken the Gray Wolf off the endangered species list in Montana and Idaho, and turned the responsibility of control over to the states FWP programs.
Looks like wolf season is back on the table for Montana and Idaho!!

May have to swing through ID/MT this fall...or both!

Will WY finally have a wolf hunt?

It kind of makes me mad. Being from Wyoming, if it is not endangered it should be for all states not just two.

About time. Read a little paragraph in the Denver Post about this. Need to get Wyoming on board now. Went hunting up in Wyoming with Yellowstone Outfitters in 2001. Was a great hunt then, guess its a different hunt now.

I will be buying a wolf tag as soon as its available! I saw one monday on the way to work.

Its official!!! Obama signed the bill to remove the wolves from the endangered species list last night. Hunting season for wolves in Idaho and Montana will resume this fall, In Wyoming, wolves remain protected because of its shoot-on-sight law for the predators. There are no immediate plans to hunt the small wolf populations in Oregon and Washington. No packs have been established in Utah.

This makes me so happy! With the huge numbers of wolves in my area it should be simple to put one on the ground.
The Fish & Game's definition of "established" is twisted to say the least. There could be (& is) wolves running thick through our woods & at times our neighborhoods & the F&G says that they have yet to achieve the pack #'s & stability. I just got done "chatting" with a local F&G officer & he was outraged that they would even think that "they are going to send a bunch of rednecks out in the woods to slaughter a bunch of beautiful animals". I dont know about you guys but that sounds like a good thing to me?! lol

Let the hunters bail them out again. :confused0024:

I'd kill them anyway laws or no laws. And put a rock under their head for the govt to choke on. P.ss on the federal govt. Just a bunch of arrogant knowitall treehugger obamunists.

The "kill them anyway laws or no laws" has been the attitude of alot of people; they are sick & tired of watching there game animals be decimated & nothing being done. My only concern about the wolves killed without "F&G approval" is that it will do nothing but harm to our State land & game laws. It seems as if they really wanted to all they had to do is say is "enough is enough we are going to turn this area into a wildlife park; no more hunting" & it will be done. It seems to be just a matter of time before something like this is brought up.

Just put a quota on them and everyone will find an even ground eventually.

Yep. While the politics are endlessly discussed I'll be shooting to protect the population ungulata. A system that never fails.
