I only kill wild animals I plan to eat. I gave up trapping when I got sick of eating muskrats. If the wolf hunters ate the wolves, then they would have a stronger argument for killing them.
Having just read a public statement by the Board of Timber Wolf Alliance and the Humane Society of the united states it sounds exactly like certain posters on Lake Link in that it uses judgmental rhetoric sprinkled with mentions of science to claim a superiority of opinion. No doubt these 2 groups are using well funded expertise in marketing and public relations to inform sympathetic newspapers and other media outlets, sway public opinion and gain more money and marketing power. Another battle coming.
216! Whatta great start.
Midday wednesday harvest was 162 it became clear that hunters and trappers were on pace to exceed the limit so the season closed at 10 am wednesday zones 2-5-6, 3pm zones 1-3-4.
To bad the quota is not 1119 !
As of 3 PM today, 76 wolves were registered with a quota of 119 allowed. Hopefully the hunters go full apesh$# today and tomorrow and get near the quota.
That's good there is in person registration. Didnt realize that. Hopefully then we have proficient hunters and trappers really bagging wolves then.
Season ends 10:00 AM Tomorrow (Wed). Just shows how many wolves we have up here.
Falsely claiming a harvest would result in a citation in short order when you fail to exhibit the carcass and pelt for in person registration by March 7th as noted in the regulations.
I don't believe you can purchase a hunting license without a hunters education number on file. Might not be a bad spring hearing proposal to put out there is to require one for applications to keep these non hunting jackoffs from tying up tags that could go to people who actually want them.
Worse than applying is claiming harvest if one didnt occour to get early closure. I would think follow up would be pretty easy. Not that many just look and see who hunts in years past .
