Since the end of 2012, officials report that an additional Nike Zoom Mercurial Flyknit Review 156 wolves have been killed by hunters and trappers. But officials said that number is expected to climb with pups born this month and in May.

the health and genetic diversity of each. The most cost effective way to accomplish this is to let those who like to hunt cull the numbers. Why pay government shooters when we can get hunters to cover the costs. The one thing I would change is to outlaw trophy hunting. It is totally unnatural. Only the weakest of the genetic pool should be culled.
"Despite concerns expressed by some people that hunting and trapping would eliminate wolf packs, we haven't found that to be the case," said Rachael. "We documented more packs in the state than ever before in our normal monitoring through ground and aerial observations during the year, combined with remote cameras, hunter observations, public reports and (hunter trapper) harvest information."
I have a buddy who shot one. The pelt and skull very cool to have. If you can even get a shot off and lucky enough to get one, then well done. Wolves generally kill the weak deer and Elk and I rather see them get eaten than just rot. Wolves and Wolverines are one of my favorite North American animals. I see nothing wrong with having wolves in Idaho. Glad to see there is a hunt for wolves to control the wolf population. I don't believe in Fish and Game to do mass killings of wolfs to get wolf numbers down. That's just plain arrogance .
We cannot overcome the fact that wildlife habitat is getting smaller everyday. Due to this we must have reasonable management of all animal species in order to maintain Nike Zoom All Out Flyknit Black
For now, it's the official policy of the Idaho Fish and Game Commission to reduce the state's wolf population. Last year, the commission increased bag limits, extended hunting seasons in some areas and allowed hunters to use electronic calls.
"It's encouraging to see the trend going down, and we are certainly committed to managing wolves to reduce impacts with livestock and big game (animals), and that means we will continue to focus on increasing harvest, particularly in problem areas," said Jon Rachael, big game manager for the Idaho Department of Fish and Game at Boise.
The Idaho Department of Fish and Game reports 683 wolves in 117 packs at the end of 2012. That total is down from 746 wolves in 104 packs in 2011.
"That is exactly what we would expect to see with wolves being harvested by hunters and trappers," he said. Fish and Nike Metcon White

LEWISTON, Idaho (AP) The latest population tally shows an 11 percent decline in the number of wolves roaming Idaho.
I would agree if these wolves were indigenous to the area, but they are not. They are out of their element. That is the problem. I love nature for everything it offers. But mankind has messed with so much of it, that now they are introducing wolves and other wildlife that was never meant be here. It now out of balance and the devastation is apparent. I understand wanting to save the species, but what we had were the timberwolves. Not these beasts that they brought in. The timeberwolves were not bigger than a large dog and they balanced the ecosystem, but alas, no longer. That is why we need control.
"Simply removing them one time doesn't mean they are gone," Rachael said. "They will backfill suitable habitat fairly quickly. That is why you can have a pretty high harvest rate with wolves and you don't see the population plummeting as some folks were predicting early on."
He said that while the number of wolf packs in the state has increased, the average size of wolf packs has decreased.
when wolves were removed from the endangered species list, is 150 wolves statewide.
State wildlife officials attribute the downsizing to continued pressure through hunting, trapping and agency control methods. Humans killed 418 of the 425 wolves known to have died in the state last year.
Officials say wolves killed 73 cattle, 312 sheep and two dogs in 2012.
