  • How mean are you

    Why would you need to hunt wolves ??? Wolves don't come into your home and kill your family for fun ! So don't do it to them! Treat others as you would like to be treated? What joy do you get out of hunting anyway? What sick person enjoys killing?

  • I agree with hunting prey that is in abundance, but not wolves

    Just to get it out of the way, I have no qualms with plentiful animals such as deer, as they are everywhere. Wolves, however, have lost much of their range, and are one step away from being listed as Near Threatened on the IUCN list. So I personally think they should be protected, at least until their numbers increase. For farmers complaining about their livestock being attacked, tough I say, it's the large scale industrial farms that are making the money and most of the food these days, small farms are more or less useless now.

  • Fairness of all

    Yes wolves can be known as monsters, but how do you know that is true. If someone was threatening your family won't you fight back. I know some hunters have dogs they love. Here is a question for those of you. A wolf is related to a dog. If you kill them it is like killing your own dog. Won't that make you sad. REPLY TO ME IF ANY QUESTIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Wolves should not be killed

    By what madness brings anyone to murder and kill in such a horrible, cruel way? By what reasons should whom shoot for the mere "fun"? They are born creatures of the world and by that they have a right to live. To my opinion anyone killing animals for the mere sport, with a sneer on their face is unacceptable, vile, full stop.
    I understand with sympathy that many have fear that wolves may attack, but they are mainly shy of humans and won't attack unless you cause fear or become a threat to them. It is a time to stop and understand these creatures, not shoot them with a gun!

  • Yes of course!

    Wolves are beautiful! Killing one wolf could destroy a family! Deer and prey are the ones that should be hunted. And anyway, the only reason to hunt would be for food. There is no other excuse. If you say money for the fur, then you're an idiot, because you spent your money on a gun/bow/arrows/bullets.

  • Wolf is self-regulating species

    Wolf numbers are determined by intra-specific violence even when ungulate numbers are abundant. If wolf is coming back to places where are plenty of ungulates then they will not reduce those numbers - it will happen only if there's severe winters, lack of forage, disease etc.
    check out Dan MacNulty wolf studies

  • They Keep the ecosystem balanced

    The wolves keep the hoofed mammals in check so they don't have to be over the amount then there is suppose to. If there weren't any wolves then all the trees and grass lands would be gone where there are elk, deer, moose, etc. We need wolves, the nature needs the wolves for Christ sake's. God had putted the wolves on Earth for a reason alright, not for a killing spree that most hunters like doing.

  • Fairness to all

    Yes wolves are over populating. But it doesn't mean that we kill them. In ower pledge of America it states that justice for all. But i see no justice in killing wolves. Wolves are like humans we are both capable of great beauty and violence. I see no point in destroying thing because they kill a cow or other animals. They need to eat to. They have a family to feed to. Wolves might think we are over populating, but i don't see them coming into ower home and killing us. So i say yes stop hunting and bring justice to us all.

  • Wolf hunting is not necassary.

    Why do we need to do that? We have cattle farming for that. If you are going to hunt, and I don't mean wolves, you can't go to Stop & Shop or Market Basket. Wolves are no threat to humans. All the attacks you hear about are because of stupid people venturing into the wilds unprepared.

  • No They Are Bad

    Wolves may be endangered but think about it, they eat livestock and invade neighborhoods which can lead to kids and adults being attacked. Wolves travel in packs so just say there are 12 wolves in a pack that are invading a neighborhood and are ruining yards and gardens that people took time on and spent money on, or if they attack a child! Do you think a small child could defend themselves from 12 wolves!! No they can't!! Thats why you should be able to hunt wolves!!

  • Population of the animals

    Yes wolves are important to the ecosystem but what happens when wolves start getting bolder and start wandering into towns when the deer and elk populations drop dramatically? The wolves will start praying on your dogs, cats, or any other animals that you own. And after that if they keep getting bolder they just might start attacking humans.

  • It really depends

    Don't hunt them for fun, wolves that are endangered e.G. Red wolf or in places where they are endangered, but if you hunt them to eat them that's fine. I don't imagine anyone hunts for the sheer "fun" of it in the 21st century anymore, I hope I'm right about that and that humans have improved, but remember you kill it, you eat it.

  • Predator Prey Models, DUH!!!

    Wolves are a keystone predator in the Rocky mountains, which means they play a very high role on ungulate mortality. Look at any predator prey model, when the food is abundant the predators will exponentially reproduce. When the predator population grows above their ecosystems carrying capacity, they will begin to die of starvation and disease. Or they will turn to other sources of food, i.E. Cattle, horses, sheep, a yuppy hiker.... It is imperative that they populations are controlled, it is healthy for every species that finds itself in the same ecosystem as the wolf. No we do not need to kill them all, but they need to be managed in order to maintain healthy populations of all species. Times have changed, we are now living in their original ecosystem. We are a part of their lives as they are ours, so if you enjoy the outdoors and wildlife viewing or hunting then you know how vital it is to control the population of wolves and other predators. If not, good luck finding any wildlife to view or hunt in the near future, and don't go out on a hike without protection because we as humans are a very easy target for a top predator.

  • They are hurting families that need to hunt for food

    Wolves are a big problem for families that need to hunt to survive. The people that want to keep the animals safe think that us hunter a people that just go out everyday slaughtering everything we see and we really don't. I agree that poaching isn't the right way to deal with the problem but they do have seasons for the wolf hunts and the limit is set very low so not all the wolves are being killed off they are just being hunted enough to bring the numbers back down to a maintainable state.

  • People Still Need Food.

    A lot of people hunt wolves for food for their families. If we stopped hunting then all of the families that need the food will be in danger. Plus if you killed off all of the wolves then you would have an over-populated amount of deer, elk, etc. Hunting should still be allowed but under certain regulations.

  • Judicial branch overstepping their bounds

    Wolf hunting is part of the ecological and biological management of animals. Biodiversity is not possible if a system is imbalanced. We see it with the whitetail deer, eastern turkeys, and now the gray wolf in WI, MN. WI never used to have a large deer herd until the biologists began managing for population and hunting in the 1960's. Now the introduction of the gray wolf has been a huge success story with over 850 animals and hunting is the method for control. The past hunts in WI have proven the carrying capacity is unbalanced. The judicial branch is not qualified to manage the population and is overstepping their authority and undermining the professionals that understand ecology.

  • Most who oppose don't live in wolf country

    There is a fine line between having an ecosystem and living in a civilized area your pets and children are safe. No hunting wolves is the vote of the majority because the majority don't have to live with them. Tunes change when they come to an area near you. Most I know in northern MN have little good things to say about the resurgence of wolves. The deer in areas wolves are have most been gone and the predators turn to another food source. A wolf population needs to have huge areas that are mostly human free, other than that, the wolf is mostly doomed, man will win out.

    As long as you don't have to deal with them you will likely vote yes, as soon as they encroach upon you, the vote is no!

  • No, but it should be monitored.

    As with deer, the wolf population probably really stands to endanger the human population when it grows too numerous. Then there is not enough to eat for the animals and fear on the part of people. So culling the heard so to speak is the way to provide some hunting without going overboard.

  • We should be able to hunt

    I believe that we should hunt wolves because in the 1950’s there was a estimate of 750 or less and now the say that there are about 2,200 wolves. In 2009 there was a higher estimate of 2,900 wolves

    sorry for the repeat

    but it is still ok to hunt them its just not right to poach them
