Idaho F&G Votes To Extend Wolf Hunts Thru March 31, 2010

Idaho Fish and Game just showed their true colors by extending all wolf kill zones through March 31. Now wolves will be chased all winter with snowmobiles, through deep snow with no cover, stressing them out to the max.  This is just unbelievable?  What other hunted animal have they extended a season for in this way?

Apparently the closed zones will not be reopened but the rest of the state will remain open for a SEVEN MONTH LONG WOLF HUNTING SEASON!!  Shame, Idaho.  The world is watching and I hope Judge Molloy is as well!!

I guess they didn’t heed this advice:

Don’t fuel the fire: End wolf hunting season Dec. 31

SFW-Idaho Predator Derby

September 19, 2009

Sportsmen for Fish and Wildlife-Idaho are holding their Fifth Annual Predator Derby. What is this you ask?  The purpose of the derby is to see which team of hunters can kill the most coyotes, bobcats, foxes and wolves in a certain time period. The rules: Each animal is worth points: bobcats and foxes are two points, coyotes two points and wolves three points. The team with the most points wins.  If there is a tie the heaviest weights determine the winner.  There may even be a special prize for the heaviest coyote.

The proceeds of the derby go to their wolf  litigation fund.

I found two definitions of sportsman:

1. a person who exhibits qualities especially esteemed in those who engage in sports, as fairness, courtesy, good temper, etc.

2. A person whose conduct and attitude exhibit sportsmanship.

Do either of these definitions describe the actions that will be taken in this derby?  Do sportsman have predator killing contests?
