Wildlife Management: Sneaky ‘C’ Students Controlling the Resources?

The Idaho Department of Fish and Game cited unspecified safety reasons for keeping secret a helicopter wolf hunt in the Lolo zone last month. Because of safety concerns, the department thought it was best to carry out the action and then notify the public about it,” department spokesman Mike Keckler said. The department, with the help of federal wildlife agents, shot and killed 23 wolves from helicopters.” The Spokesman-Review

wolvesThis is another one of those multi-angled issues: ranchers, hunters, animal advocates, anti-gun, anti-hunting etc. The State manipulating, controlling, “protecting” resources at every turn and often screwing it up. The secrecy of all this activity is as distressing as the heli-kill. I wonder who from the Idaho Fish & Game invited a buddy a long for some fun times? Just wondering………. 


Wildlife management, whether wolves, fish or elk seems to be primitivism cloaked in science by guys that garnered C’s while in college. Ranchers initiating selective kills of wolves killing livestock/livelihood/food is one thing. Mismanaged numbers re elk and secrecy is quite another!

    Why does man’s concept of “Wildlife management” always seem to centre around killing something?

    Amen to that, Switt! Wildlife management is a fancy title with little science and less management. You can bet your boots the old boys had a field day shooting the wolves. I doubt that these management hunts could withstand much scrutiny in the light of day…

    A disturbing story on many levels, but most of all is the ‘secrecy’ for safety reasons.
