this makes me sad but is also a wakeup call to get people involved.

sad news indeed.  tried to get a few people involved in hunting last year.  took them out a couple time, but i doubt they will continue since i had to move for flight school.  seen too much loss of land in montana to anti-hunters.  then they shut it off to all hunters other than their rich buddies.  guess they have the right, but growing up being able to hunt almost the whole state if you just stop and ask, this makes me sick.  well, i won't rant too long.  hope things change, but i wouldn't hold my breath.

the worst part is that hunting done in a proper manner is good for the ecosystem as well if we dont hunt we will really have problems down the road.

tell me about it.  every year in montana, they do damage hunts to kill off elk and deer because not enough people hunt.  i can shoot more animals in a year than four families could eat, and it still isn't enough.  worked as a park ranger for a couple years, and the government drove me crazy because the so-called experts wouldn't do anything to promote hunting to balance animal numbers.  anyway, thanks for posting that report.

i talk to my dad quite a bit he still lives in wyoming i moved from there in 2001 but i hunted there for a few years and he says that the wolves are killing more than enough elk anyway, but i think thats going to stop when they start a wolf season. we would hunt elk and usually between me and dad one of us would get an elk which for a family of four would last through the winter anyways.

wolves aren't as much of a problem up in mt as they are in wy.  if they do start a season, you can bet i will be out there hunting them.  most of my excess meat i give to families in need.  last year, i shot 2 elk, 7 deer, 3 antelope, and had tags for mountain lion and bear.  didn't draw a moose tag.  i know other people that did the same thing.  still there was a need for damage hunts in some areas.  part of the problem has been the mild winters for the last couple years.  no winter kill.
