Default 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!!

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.

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
