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.

forgot to mention..... sounds like Wisconsin is having a fun time with them too.
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.
The wolves will spread a lot of disease. While doing predator calling a month ago or so, i saw something that could have been a wolf, think its possible they could already be in western oregon?
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.

Heard that they have been sighted in the Wallowas.
Just read J. Beers testimony to the Oregon State Legislature. It's amazing how much sense he makes. I already knew that the Lolo herd was in bad shape, but had no idea that the number of elk in the Northern Yellowstone herd was down so much as to be "on the verge of total collapse and extinction" according to his testimony. I have checked out some pro-wolf websites, and they are full of lies and deceit..... Ok, I am gonna quit typing right now before I become too upset.

take care and I hope there is another wolf season this fall......
Another not.... upon further reading of Beers' testimony. The list of diseases that wolves may carry is kinda scary. I'm real glad I didn't pick up any of their skat while elk hunting in central Idaho a couple years back.
Were all gonna enjoy them !!!

According to this article there is a petition to the Feds to re-introduce wolves nation wide , now isn't that a stoke of genius. Leave it to the envirowakos to come up with this. :confused:
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.
Those in Arizona are having a really tough time getting established, according to the researchers and G&F people. Seems poaching is rampant.
Somehow I don't feel bad for the wolves...
What is the latest news on the Fall wolf hunts?
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.
Oregon Wolf packs

I saw an article in yesterdays paper about Oregon having put a radio collar on one of the adults in the SECOND pack in NE Oregon and confirmed sightings in the Cascades this year. The first pack has six adults and pups this summer, three of the adults are collared. They are moving west more rapidly than expected! No surprise there! Here is a link to the ODFW web site about the Wolf plans and current sightings..... Oregon Dept of Fish & Wildlife/ Wolves

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.
