Big Bad Wolves

Big Bad Wolves

Wolves are back in abundance in many areas of North America. For now sportsmen must travel to Alaska, Canada, northern Europe and Asia to hunt them. Here are Safari Club International’s biggest trophies.

Come to MT and kill our wolves. Matbe will have to start trapping them again. That would be a kick in the a-s.

I got lucky and took my first Timber Wolf a couple of weeks ago. He was juat a pup but still weighed in at 90 lbs. I got a lot of greaf from friends and relitives over it so i decided to do a little research. I found out that there are so many wolves in the smokey flats Alberta, which is near the spot i shot my wolf, that fish and game are shooting them with mounted guns from helicoptors. 6000 wolves have to be killed in the area to give the caraboo a fighting chance. I am very proud of the wolf i killed and am going to hang it on my wall, I will also do my part anytime i see a wolf to help control the population.

Please, kill all the wolves you can. I am sick of losing my hunting opportunities because tree huggers think wolves are so beautiful. You have never even seen a wolf in the wild. Either have I, because if I did I would shoot it and bury it deep.

If you want to hunt your dog that's your buisness, but I don'y thank your PETA friends would like you very much when they find out. Probably bomb your house. If your dog comes into my neighborhood and acts aggressive to any of our children, wivies, elders or pets. It's dead. No chances taken.

Kansaslawnman13025(the n is not a mistake) if it were not illegal to carry a firearm into sertain areas(i.e. national or state parks) then we would be able to protect our self and our families, but our "lawmen" who don't back our right to protect ourselves then it makes it kind of hard to protect ourselves or our properties(i.e. oivestock). Ask some of the ranchers who's livestock have been killed in masses and just left to rot. they were not killed for suvival or food just a frinzy. I guess a lady jogging along a wooded path or a wooded road would be the same as getting lost in the back country to you or a child in there backyard. There again they were probably prohibited from owning a firearm within certain boundries. You kill to eat that's fine. I would kill an animal to protect my family and property also.

Learn how to keep your livestock from being destroyed by a predator who needs to eat to live..period. Getting lost in the back country..be prepared period. I kill to eat.

I can't believe that any wolf lover can be a animal lover or wildlife lover of any kind. You support the placing of a Canadian Gray Wolf in an area that never in known history ever had them. You removed them from their homes and put them in areas far away from their families. Now they are killing every animal they can get ahold of in defience of your actions! And you continue to support the horrendous, ill advised, mistake you made acting like a promoter of wildlife. Shame, shame on you! As you continue your stupid, non-biologically sound lawsuits, you'll eventially be responsible for the mass starvation of all the wolves after they've killed all the rest of the forest's critters. And you call yourselves "Defenders of Wildlife." Shame on you!

These big lobos like to sit at the top of the food chain, and can and do kill indiscriminately. Ask farmers and ranchers who have had their herds decimated in one night by these huge killers, often leaving cattle crippled but still some alive with their hindquarters eaten out. Horrific..!!!

Down thru history wolves have attacked, killed and eaten all manner of animals, wild and domestic. And in the early West when the white man's disease devastated the indian tribes, wolves feed on the dead and dying....going right into the natives abodes and teepee's for their victims who were too emancipated to fight the beasts off. Now, I can hear all the idiotic wolf lovers saying "no, no, no...actually these big predators are really vegetarians...RIGHT..??!!!!

Ask the family of engineering student Kenton Carnegie, who was out for a walk in the Northern Saskatchewan bush, and was stalked, savagely attacked, killed and largely eaten before the Mounted Police arrived and drove off the pack with fusilades of gunfire that dreadfull night.

Or picture the horror of the school teacher who was out jogging in Alaska, chased down by a wolf pack, killed and again largely eaten....possibly while she was still alive.

Ask the man who with his wife were skiing in B.C.'s back country, they became lost and his wife succumbed to the winter elements. They were being pursued by a pack of wolves, as related on the national news. When his wife died the man had to eventually leave his wife's body and kept wandering for a couple more days till the searchers found him by helicopter. What do you think became of his wife's body with the wolf pack that was closely trailing them till the woman died, then the pack left the man alone as he struggled to get away from those savages brutes..?

Read the true narratives in author Will Graves recent book: 'Wolves In Russia: Anxiety Through The Ages' as wolves drag down, kill and eat men, women and children in the Russian countryside and rural villages, dining on the peasant population like the victims were caviar..!!!

I'm always well armed in any forays into the wild beautiful places, and the wolf pack that I suddenly found trailing me for a few hours in the deep Canadian wilderness one time, paid the respective price over the next 2 - 3 years as the searing memory of that day drove me on in my quest to repay that savage bunch for their intentions.

Now it's winter again, and the remnants of that blood thirsty bunch are going to get another lesson in respect, and their place in the food chain with yours truly..!!!

The guns Yury Kudro and Sergei Yastrzhembskiy show in photos # 3 and 8 are double-barrelled and look like shot-guns? Can anyone elaborate on what these guns are, the caliber (gauge) etc. and how the animals were hunted? Are they allowed to use baits in those Euro-Asian countries?

I may be exhibiting my naivety or worse, but I also would like to know what SCI stands for.

I think that there is a place for each of gods creatures in nature. But when any animal starts to compete with man for resourses to the extent that our own livelyhood and safety is threatned we need to manage the resourse. Wolves will eventually find us on their food chain but before they do we need to keep them in check. Wolves could eat their way into trouble and its up to us to allow the deer to survive as well as the Wolfs

IronJoe; Wolves have/had been in Montana,Utah,Wyoming,etc. long before you or any of your ancestors were there. To make the statement "Kill Every Wolf You See" betrays you as a Killer" not a "Hunter". You have learnt nothing from Hunting. Your attitude/Statements give all Hunters a Bad name, do us all a disservice.
I suggest you do some reading on Wolves(Biology&History) in North America. Maybe you'll learn something.

Wolves most certainly are not an invasive specie. Wolves are some of the most Beautiful and efficient Hunters in the World. They have every right to Kill to eat, it is what they do. Thier whole society is geared around "the Hunt". The cohesion of the pack, the individual status of wolves, their Breeding Behavior with regards to availability of food, thier Hunting Tactics,thier physique, are so well suited to thier environment. Everything about thier hunting Prowess and relationship to thier environment is something all "True Hunters" should respect and Emulate.
When an "Alpha Individual" particularly "The Alpha Male" is killed it is catastrophic for the pack. A whole new ranking order needs be established for the pack to hunt as it should. I suggest every "Hunter" think on this before He or She goes out to hunt Wolves. Wolves to my mind aught only be hunted when Disease threatens the Wolve Pop. Wolves generally do not overpopulate as they will generally not breed when "Prey Species" populations are low. Hunting is more than just about Killing. It is about learning, developing an appreciation/respect for the natural world and getting protien. If in the process a "Nice Trophy" is taken "Buon Fortune" but fot me it has never been about the "Rack" or Designer Camoflage. Granted, in this day and age if something does not generate money in some way shape or form it will be replaced. As this relates to hunting, if it were not for the Billions of Dollars hunters generate, our hunting grounds would have long been replaced with Condos. So, I say god bless the free market. However, I sense that many hunters today do not have the Proper ethos. That is sad. Remember Hunting is about learning, respect for Nature and getting food.

Just a little history...Gray wolf populations were extirpated from the western U.S. by the 1930s. Subsequently, wolves from Canada occasionally dispersed south into Montana and Idaho but failed to survive long enough to reproduce. Public attitudes toward predators changed and wolves received legal protection with the passage of the Endangered Species Act (ESA) in 1973. Gray Wolves began to successfully recolonize northwest Montana again in the early 1980s. By 1995, there were six wolf packs in northwestern Montana. In 1995 and 1996, 66 wolves from southwestern Canada were reintroduced to Yellowstone National Park. Gray wolves are not invasive just carnivores. With elk populations at an all time high I doubt wolves are causing their demise. Let's not be too hasty; If managed well wolves could flourish again and great hunters like those pictured here can once again show off their keen hunting skills and prize trophies.

I remember when wolves were re-introduced into Yellowstone. I thought it was a great thing. Now, my favorite 3 elk hunting spots are decimated. We were finding recreationally-killed elk all over the place, elk with maybe 2lbs eaten off of them. Now, no elk, no mule dear, nothing. And, the wolves that were brought into Montana are actually a different subspecies than the few native populations that were here. Now the native populations of wolves (they never over-populated their areas and did not kill for fun) are decimated. The new invasive species of wolf in Montana has driven the native population completely extinct and should be handled like any invasive species, such as knapweed.

To make the statement "Kill Every Wolf You See" betrays you as a Killer" not a "Hunter". You have learnt nothing from Hunting. Your attitude/Statements give all Hunters a Bad name, do us all a disservice.
I suggest you do some reading on Wolves(Biology&History) in North America. Maybe you'll learn something.
