FYI, from WTP:

WHO: Jim Beers, former Chief of National Wildlife Refuge Operations

WHAT: Public presentation on fraud and deceit employed in the dangerous wolf "reintroduction" program

WHEN: Sunday, May 16, 2010

WHERE: Gran Tree Inn in Bozeman, Montana

Jim Beers, former Chief of National Wildlife Refuge Operations, will address the lies, deceit and fraud employed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the state wildlife agencies in Montana and Idaho and environmental groups to illegally introduce Canadian wolves where they were never native, nor endangered.

His presentation begins at 1:00 p.m. on Sunday, May 16, 2010, at the Gran Tree Inn in Bozeman, Montana. Admission is free.

"This is the first time I have spoken exclusively on this subject of all the violations of law committed by government bureaucrats, non-governmental organizations, Washington lobbyists and political appointees who introduced and spread wolves in the West," states Jim Beers, who worked in various capacities with USFWS for 32 years.

He is probably best known for his role in exposing the USFWS theft of up to $60 million from funds collected as excise taxes on sporting firearms, ammunition and fishing tackle. This money is to be distributed back to state wildlife agencies for habitat improvement and to provide greater outdoor opportunities for sportsmen. (In 2009, the amount divided nationwide totaled more than $700 million.) The millions embezzled by USFWS went into a slush fund used for agency appointee bonuses and for other unauthorized purposes. Beers claims one of those purposes was to provide illegal funding for reintroducing wolves into Yellowstone – funding Congress refused to provide.

Other wolf introduction issues he will address include the improper and illegal manner in which federal and state wildlife agencies justified wolf introduction, the false claims made by these agencies and how the legal intervention by environmental organizations, such as the Defenders of Wildlife, is very much to blame for the dramatic drop in elk, deer and other big game numbers.

There will be an hour long question and comment period following the presentation, followed by an hour long reception.

This presentation is wholly sponsored by Friends of the Northern Yellowstone Elk Herd. Its purpose is to unify those who have been harmed by the illegal forced introduction of wolves by federal and state wildlife agencies and to fund a lawsuit to put an end to the destruction wolves are dealing our wildlife resources.

Every sportsman who hunts, or anyone who just enjoys watching wildlife, needs to attend this presentation.

Its pretty awful up here, wolves have knocked the elk population down 80%, and destroyed a lot of livestock. We need them out now!
Yep, we have the worm and its only a few months from jumping to a human, I'm certain of it. We are so dumb for letting these moronic feds and anti hunters get their way and destroy our land and now its going to kill us all - I'm sure they are cheering about that to. They have got to be mentally ill to hate their own kind.

I know a guy that hunted wolves this past season with a 17 HMR, said he'd shoot every one he saw until he recovered one. I don't recall how many he had to shoot before he filled his tag. I'm thinking it was a pretty good idea.
Good news today, the State has said that it will at least double the quota from 75 animals to up to 216. We currently have at least 564 wolves (total lie, there are more like 1500) and the target population is 150. Last season hunters killed 73 wolves, and the Feds killed 145, with NO impact in the population.

pruh- I bet that psycho would have fed his daughter to the wolves, they have nothing but disdain for humanity. Anybody remember Timmy Treadwell, he thought the grizzly bears were his "friends" then they made bear poop out of him.
Yea I read that Idaho was considering upping the quota, and that they didn't fill the quota from last year.

Montana is adding an Archery season, which should be really advantageous as Wolves are difficult to hunt if you're wearing bright orange. MT Archery hunters are allowed to pack a sidearm but may not harvest the "game" animal with it.
That would make the Feds revoke our ability to manage them, and precisely why Wyoming doesn't have a season yet.
Its tougher to do that here, since the state will sell unlimited tags and requires you bring in the skull for kill verification on Wolves and Mountain Lions.

No doubt there are loonies putting in for coveted Bighorn Sheep, Mountain Goat, and Moose tag and then not using their tag, but that doesn't bother me much.
Good luck seeing them that far. They don't hang out in the wide open very long. They are smart enough to know we are the true top predator.

As much as I dislike wolves, I truly dislike the people that thought we needed them and the people that think that wolves are more important that people. Regardless, I will never intentionally make any animal suffer for my enjoyment.
The Envirowackos think that we should abandon the Earth and let the animals have it. God made us and the animals, He gave us the intelligence to be the top predator, He made enough of them for all of us. I have no problem with people that don't hunt or eat meat, but its a different story when you come up with lies that say that humans aren't supposed to eat meat or use the Earth as it was made for us.
The Feds report that only MT,WY, and ID have them, although they are in MN, ND, WI, NH, VT, ME, NY, MI, OR, and WA at least part of the year.
I wouldnt' doubt it, although I haven't kept up on user reports of sightings in OR.

Take a camera with you, even if its only on a phone, if there is mud or snow take a picture of the prints. They will attack humans so use caution around them.
I saw that in the Gazette too... what a joke! I guess they finally admitted there are about 6000 wolves though, not 1500. Their population is increasing 30% annually. They have tracked wolves now in Colorado, Utah, Arizona, and New Mexico along with all the states I already mentioned.
Somehow I don't feel bad for the wolves...
Everything has been put on hold thanks to Judge Molloy who proclaims that because Wyoming does not have a management plan and MT and ID do, that we in ID and MT can not hunt them.
These vermin are adding 30% to their populations every year, seeing as how the area is more than saturated with wolves, expect them to move to the coast in a couple of years, and south through Colorado into Utah and Northern California about the same time.
