NO WOLF HUNT QUOTA FOR MUCH OF IDAHO!!!!

There were rumors, I didn’t want to believe them. I heard a quota of 400, which sounded horribly high. I would not let my mind wrap around how far things have fallen from a year ago.  Idaho’s wolves are facing hell.  I have no words tonight.

Idaho to offer looser wolf hunt rules

By JOHN MILLER & MATTHEW BROWN – Associated Press Published: Jun 30, 2011 at 5:26 PM MDT
BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Idaho wildlife managers will propose a wolf hunt without quotas in much of the state.

  1. Lynne stone was right on the money. She said there would be no quota weeks ago on ww facebook page. Just goes to show you that Idaho wants to get rid of its wolf population just to benefit hunters/ranchers. The politicians run the idaho fish and game department, make no mistake about it. I hope the wolves get put back on the endangered species list. this is an extermination plan.

    • Jon…I was just talking to a few advocates the other day about this. Could it be true, would they do it? Now we know, they would and they could. It’s a slap in the face to all wolf advocates.

      I wonder if those 81 Senators are even aware of what they have wrought? The 81 Senators who voted to delist wolves by budget rider. Then Obama signed the budget bill into law with the wolf rider attached. How could this administration be so callous? They have undone 16 years of progress and opened up the door for more assaults on the ESA. So much for hope and change.

      And the Senators who cast the votes, they should be ashamed. Instead of worrying about holding onto their Senate majority and Tester’s re-election they should have been paying attention to the hateful rhetoric directed at wolves who have done nothing to deserve this. Why do they think wolf advocates tried and are still trying to save wolves from this fate? We knew the war that was being waged against wolves. It’s a repeat of what happened the first time around. Different century same results. They should be ashamed of themselves, every single one of them. Especially the Senators that pretended to care so much about the environment. I’ve talked about this many times but if it wasn’t for the those 81 Senators voting to delist wolves via rider and the President signing the budget bill into law, wolves wouldn’t be facing the pogrom in Idaho. Shame on those Senators, shame. Oh and a special thanks to President Obama for putting a rancher in charge of the Interior.

    • I agree with your comments Jon. Unfortunately, for the wolves to be reentered on the endangered list, their numbers will have to decrease at an alarming rate, so really it’s a catch 22. They will be killed in great quantity because they are not on the endangered list. But to be on the endangered list, their numbers have to drop alarmingly. However, it looks like maybe we are getting through because the amount of licenses for wolf-hunting have dropped off radically. So maybe those of us with a brain and knowledge of how wildlife operates, like all of us on this website and people like Nabeki, are getting through to those who are a little less knowledgeable, like the politicians and ranchers.

  2. The wolf reintroduction presented Idaho with a set of stern rules it HAD to abide by, a fact that did not sit well with the hunting and ranching community whom already had a hatred of the wolf – despite never encountering one in the state for over 60 years, the federal government bent over backwards to appease them but they still were not satisfied because they could not get their way. This is more than an extermination plan, it is sending the spoiled brat-like message of ‘We can do whatever we want’.

    • You nailed it John. They think they own all our wildlife and can do anything they want to them. Those public comments they pretend to elicit is such a joke IMO. Do they really care what the non-hunting, non- ranching public has to say? Wolves didn’t even last sixteen years and they are ready set to exterminate them once again.

      • John and Nabeki: you are absolute right.

        This is an extermination programme and that was the intention from the beginning. The backwards hatred for wolves embedded in these people’s culture added to the current political climate could only lead to this conclusion. These people don’t have any intention to play by the rules or obey any quotes or believe any scientific reports because they have a bigger message to send: to show the government that its interference is not welcome in their little corner of the world. The absurd state of public hysteria they promoted by vilifying the wolves was just means to an end. They use their hateful rhetoric to prey on those disillusioned and ignorant enough to fall for the politics behind it. It is a very simple principle after all.

        One thing is for sure: people need to stand up against this if the wolves in Idaho are to have a future. Hunters, ranchers, outfitters, etc do not own the wildlife in the USA and should not be allowed to rule their destiny as they please.

      • valondon…..What is the difference between this and Wyoming? The only difference I see is you have to buy a tag in Idaho to kill a wolf.

      • Nabeki,
        They are really just asking for their benefactor’s opinion. Wyoming pulled this in 2009 and was stripped of its wolf hunts, the ID F&G is only doing this because it knows it can milk that damn rider for all its worth. My guess is anyone who offers a negative opinion over this despicable plan will probably recieve the same tired PR ‘go away’ drivel something along the lines of:

        “Dear [name]
        Thank you for your comments, Idaho Fish and Game is working to ensure the survival of healthy sustainable wolf populations as well as preserve the cultural heritage of our hunting and ranching communities.”
        In other words: ignored

        But that’s not to say the wicked should be allowed to sleep peacefully.

  4. OOHHHHHH my………… They don`t have any right to kill any wildlife! – Who do they think they are???? GOD or what?! If anybody don`t have the right to be here, it`s hunters that kill wolf only for profit reasons. Yeaaahh ranchers loose som cows and whatever, but before they started their farming, they should know about the wildlife – like wolf – in the area.
    Big surprice – predators kill for food???!!!!
    Come on – start another business ig you don`t like wildlife like wolf. Be adults and accept the wolf are here and have the right to be!
    senators – get out in the nature and move your fat body out of the office and see what you´re about to kill!

  5. Nabeki,

    I contacted Toby Boudreau with the Fish and Game Dept. in Idaho. Just so he knows how many people are against what is going on with the “no-quota” hunting. Here is his email if others want to send comments to him; as always, there is strength in numbers. toby.boudreau@idfg.idaho.gov
