Wolves / Re: Washington Wolf Plan Revised
« on: June 03, 2011, 03:47:26 PM »
It's like cascade hunter said over on washington-hunters. Dave doesn't understand that the 1.5 billion is from whale watching tours. It's a huge business, people come from all over the world to see orcas and crap like that. Cascade hunter is right, cougars kill way more deer than the wolves ever will. Kill more cougars, and the deer numbers will stay the same. Bring back the rights to hound hunters and let more cougars get taken. Easy fix.

Does anyone know if you can hunt in Natural Resources Conservation Areas? They are controlled by DNR, so I'm thinking the answer is yes, but can't find anything online.

That's how it is. Every Washington Officer I know says the same thing:

1. Open carry is 100% legal in WA

until

2. Someone complains

then

3. You will be asked to leave or put it away

or

4. Be arrested or cited

It's just like the indecent exposure law. There is no law in Washington prohibiting nudity in public. Only if someone complains and it is determined that the nudity was done to cause alarm to others is it then illegal.

Well, they did say it was killed, so they obviously have some sort of proof. And they are federally protected, so the government will offer a reward for any animal killed that is under their protection.

It's not worth the $25,000 fine and 6 months in prison.

Have you ever seen that poaching show or the clips of it on Ameica's dumbest criminals? Where they have the under cover agents hiding in the woods with the electric deer out of season or the fake wolf. After they pull the trigger 75 law enforcement officers start dropping out of trees and popping out of holes in the ground wearing ghillie suits with guns drawn. You never know when it's just a trick.

I don't see the problem here?????????? They said it could be a wolf, because it's not unusual for a wolf to leave its pack and travel long distances. It's not like they said no way, it is impossible for it to be a wolf. And who cares really if it is a wolf? Big deal. Wolves are part of nature. They are supposed to expand their range and territory. Let me know when they start affecting the deer and elk populations. Then we have a problem.

Good to see some level headed people. You should read the thread about this on that other hunting site. They are putting the blame on the dead guy...and saying things like who cares because he was an illegal alien anyway and everyone should be forced to wear orange in the woods.

Identify your target! Identify your target! Identify your target! Identify your target! Identify your target! Holy crap what part of that is so hard??? :bash:

 :yeahthat: Man some peoples children. Have they released the names of the "hunters"? I'd be curious to know if I know the guys.

Orbitz or Priceline are the best. I flew to New York roundtrip for less than $400 last month.

Maybe it's like what happened over in Michigan back in the late 90's. They hired some jerk that was against predator hunting, so he sent out the permits to the wrong addresses. The deer tags all made it on time, nobody that ordered by mail got their predator tag.

Probably some PETA clown working the at the distribution desk at the WDFW and he can't stand the thought of someone killing a cougar. Good luck getting your tag. I believe they are closed today anyway, they had a four day weekend to save the state money. I would call all day tomorrow.

Its the last two years that the wolves have made the biggest impact, both on livestock and elk/deer.

Funny, you might be right. The guy I quoted above wrote this http://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2009-07/msu-gye071709.php

You don't think things have changed in the last 5 years?

I couldn't find any specific stats, but the 2008 Wyoming Annual Report shows elk herds are stronger than ever after comparing 30 years of data. Between 2005-2008, the Idaho Fish and Game conducted a study that showed that wolves were not causing elk herds to shrink. They reported that the actual cause of major elk losses was loss of habitat. In some areas that were studied, hunters were the leading cause of declining elk population.

I never had a problem with wolves. Wolves have been around for millions of years eating elk and deer and the elk and deer never went extinct. They don't even kill that many livestock. Consider these facts:

* In the continental U.S., health issues such as respiratory problems, digestive problems, calving complications and disease were overwhelmingly the most significant causes of cattle death in 2005.

* Only 0.11% of all cattle losses were due to wolf predation in 2005.

* Coyotes killed more than 22 times more cattle than wolves killed that year.

* Domestic dogs killed almost 5 times as many cattle, and vultures killed almost twice as many cattle as wolves did in 2005.

* Theft was responsible for almost 5 times as many cattle losses as were lost by wolf predation.

* Predation by coyotes was the largest cause of sheep loss in 2005, accounting for 23% of all losses, followed by health problems & weather-related issues.

* In states with wolf populations, an average of less than 2.5% of sheep loss was due to predation by wolves in 2005.



The whole wolf thing is overblown IMO.
