Wolves at the door.
At least they knew what to do about them.
Sweet....I volunteer to help with wolf extermination.
The only way that they will learn is to have a legal hunt throughout the UP. Let the hunters take care of them.
8 years ago!
So it is.
Hmmm, I get 6
See? That's the evidence that you're just here to argue...like that one ol' boy said. Maybe Icehog posted it from 2 years in the future?
Ever the instigator
During the first wolf hunt 22 wolves were tagged. I wonder how many were killed and not tagged.
22 wolves harvested is a pretty sad commentary given the fact that both Minnesota and Wisconsin harvested about 350 wolves each that same year and the year prior, while Michigan was still holding public hearings about how to manage the hunt and harvested zero wolves the first year they were delisted.
The primary difference is that trapping was not allowed in Michigan while it was the major source of harvest in Wisconsin and Minnesota - something around 85% of the harvest if I recall correctly.
The DNR was only trying to target wolf packs that were causing livestock damage. We only had 3 small open areas. I saw 4 during the season but none of them were in the open areas. If the wolf season was open UP wide I would have filled my tag at the beginning of the season.
Final wolf count.
