Re: “Fish and Game Wants Your Wolf Comments

Just put your comments in at the end Wilder, they do want to hear from everyone.

What you are seeing in the survey is not a bias, it is written that way because it has already been decided that wolves will be controlled here, they want to know what people think about HOW it will be done, not if it will be done. There is no stopping the Idaho Fish and Game from controlling the wolf population, it is going to happen. Classic Idahoans are too pragmatic and sensible, we have no choice but to react to our reality. People do not understand what is going on here, unless you live here. Most people in rural Idaho are true outdoors folks, we are not like most everyone else. We could live off of the land, we prefer to. We are more a part of the land than people understand. We don't visit wild places, they are a part of us, they are our home. We are a positive part of the ecosystem, whether outsiders can see it or not. We know the truth. Wolves are in direct conflict with our way of life. And we have a right to live our lives in a way that makes sense to us. Idaho Fish and Game understands this, because they are us. Wolves are going to die. Lots of them. Because they are out of control here and they need very badly to be dealt with.

There is one positive thing that wolf lovers can take away from this whole unfortunate set of circumstances. I know wolves. Once we start shooting at them in earnest, they will be pushed back into the wilder, more remote areas, where they will be a bother to no one. No one here cares if they exist. We care if they are in our front yards. It's not cool. It sucks. Big time. Wolves don't belong around people, but they have no fear of us because we have caused them no harm. That is how an opportunist operates. Wolves are sooooooooo smart, so amazingly intelligent. They react and adapt to whatever it is that benefits the pack the most, they always look out for number one. Just like humans do. As soon as the shooting starts, they'll high tail it to the back country, and few will be able to get at them back there, even fewer will even want to try, so they will be perfectly safe. In their natural habitat. Which is where history, nature and life have always proved they belong, far away from humanity.

Re: “Fish and Game Wants Your Wolf Comments

Derlemke: Have you read one word I have written with an honest and open mind? Do you think you can convince me I am something I have never shown any inclination to be and/or are asking for something I have never asked for? You are an idiot!! You can't stay on a topic, you ramble all over the place, your points are disjointed and thoughtless, lacking connection and failing to make points. Your level of critical thinking and ability to comprehend English is in the toilet, you can't defend postions, you can't answer direct questions, you avoid everything that would challenge you to question your own beliefs or God forbide, THINK outside of your own narrow understanding of the world you live in.

I'm sick of your exaggerations. I can't talk to people like you. If you can't be honest in your interpretation of what I have written, there is no reason for us to talk. Exaggerating what someone says to try and make it appear in another light is not cool. It is also rude, disrespectful, and dishonest.

I don't give two craps who you are, if you are not an Idahoan and you do not live the life people here are living, dealing with a wolf population that is out of control.

And your links are pointless. The site is as slanted as they get. Mostly garbage. What are they supposed to disprove of what I have said? I'd say absolutely nothing.

I've got better things to do than deal with fools. If you wonder what I think about anything to do with wolves, read what I have written, and read it well.

And scan your DD-214? How much am I supposed to laugh about that comment? What in the hell does you being in the Marines have to do with anything we are talking about? This is NOT about you, believe it or not. I don't give two handfulls of snot about you, I would care about anything meaningful you could bring to the conversation, and you have brought very, very, very little. Your DD-214? What a perfect example of your inability to process a logical argument based on meaningful information.

Idaho for Idahoans!!!!!!!!!!! One of the last free states in this country, and one of the last places in the United States that truly values independence, freedom and liberty, and good old common sense.

Buh bye, until you get honest. If you don't get honest, and quit distorting my plainly written words and ignoring honest truth, you will hear not another peep out of me in response.

Re: “Fish and Game Wants Your Wolf Comments

Derlemke: What data is more relevant and real than ones own life?? I'm living it. And did you even bother to read the interview I posted, the link? I bet not. Because you already have your mind made up, and you are closed to thinking. Your brain is off. I talk to people like you all the time, and they sound just like you do. Illogical, with few points that connect, and mostly out to lunch from reality.
You have no direct experience with wolves, so your opinions are suspect from the get go. Thanks for the comments, but they are too disconnected and illogical for me to get much out of them. This is a hot topic, I know. With lots of people interested in its outcome, and lots of opinions to go around. But I know rational thinking when I see it. You are not displaying it.

We do NOT need wolves in Idaho to manage our forest ecosystem for us. The Idaho Fish and Game were just getting a good balance of elk with the management plan they had in effect here when wolves were reintroduced, and it queered everything all to hell. Wolves have been a catastrophe for this state. Wildlife management is not a perfect science, by any means, and we will always have a long way to go because things are constantly changing. Open minds understand these things.
Bottom line stays the same though, wolves and humans are in direct conflict with one another naturally. Wolves are too much like us for those who live around them to not have their quality of life degraded by them. The choice is clear here in Idaho. The common sense thinkers win the game, and it's time to start shooting. The wolves are out of control, and we will control them, whether you like it or not.

And you are the one exaggerating and being emotional. I very simply stated facts, to give people some things to chew on, to let them think. My words are very rational and make good sense. I'm making solid points, not one of which you lessen the power of in any way with what you said. Not in ANY way, not at all. You don't directly address anything I said in any way that shows a word I wrote to be untrue or fouled. I challenge you to do so in a connected, thoughtful, logical manner. Go ahead, try again. It's not easy to make clear points, but I hope that you will continue to try. I'm interested to see if you can pull it off. Try to not get angry. Try actually reading everything I said and thinking about it. Try reading the interview, and then get back to me.

And lets get one things straight: I am not Senator Crapo, I am not anybody but me. I don't need anyone to tell me the ways things are, or the way things were, I am living it, and have lived it. That is where my point of view comes from, a life of experience, and on open mind. I am a nature person, I have spent my entire life living and playing in the outdoors. I have less love for the human race than you might imagine, but I know where to draw the line. I understand that the natural rights and interests of my friends and neighbors outweigh those of wolves. Any fool can see that. We aren't animal haters, and we aren't lovers of all things human. We are in Idaho for a reason, dipstick, and it's not because we believe that humans are the most important thing going. Hardly. Not even remotely. I've been places and experienced things in nature I doubt you can even imagine. I won't embarrass you by telling you what I do, I have nothing to prove to you. But let's just say I know what I'm talking about, and my opinions are based on real life. My life.

You haven't said one word that disproves or lessons the truth of anything I said. You're just spinning your tires, hoping to splatter enough mud on simple truths so that people can't see points and ideas that don't jive with yours. That is some weak sauce. Nice try, but cold logic is a hard one to deal with. I suggest you face it.

Re: “Fish and Game Wants Your Wolf Comments

A-Train: If you had ever been to Idaho, or knew about our wolf issues and circumstances, you'd know what you just said is not very applicable.

And here is a great interview that brings up a lot of the issues the hunters in this state talk about. I hadn't even brought that issue up yet. I'll always believe a human beings right to exist how they see fit, in freedom and liberty, outweigh *any* rights anyone thinks wolves should have.…

Now there's a biologist I trust. Fair and honest.

And another very real issue here: lots of rural people in this state used to have more of an opportunity to feed their families with hunting. Many of them have been VERY hard hit by the recession as well. They are struggling and need all the help they can get. Wolves literally take food off of their tables. That's no drama time BS, that is 100% true. And things are just getting worse. It's time to start placing the livelihood of rural Idahoans over the livelihood of wolves. It's time to start shooting, and I'll be fighting to be first in line. Because it is simply the right thing to do.

Re: “Fish and Game Wants Your Wolf Comments

Bryant: I'm not sure what you are trying to say. My questions to veggie are specifically directed at her, and the human hating aspect is a very thinly veiled response to her suggestion that we start shooting Idaho politicians. I was hoping to stimulate thought inside of her, beyond her own beliefs and preconceived notions.

I do believe that native Americans respected and revered wolves as a part of the natural system that existed>>> at THAT time, and that made sense, at that time. The world isn't even remotely the same now as it was back then, so to make the statement you made is hardly constructive. If the world was the same now as it was back then, I'd be right there with them, saying leave the wolves alone. But the simple fact is, it is not. I'm just trying to accept reality and do the best I can with it in a way that makes sense for the good of the many humans, not for the good of the existence of wolves in the wild. What right do people that want wolves in the wild have to tell people how they must live their lives? Based on some overly romantic view of the past?! Ridiculous!! The world has changed, it is time to accept it.

BTW> I don't recall mentioning that anyone had been killed by wolves in the US. But I guarantee you humans have died in the mouths of wolves. I'm not scared of that happening again, and it is no argument for their removal, but it could happen. And to even allow that possibility is pretty silly, because wolves do not need to exist. For any rational reason. That is my point on that. There is absolutely no rational reason to have wolves in the wild in the United States, anywhere.
And, while I agree that the chances wolves will ever harm a child in Idaho is a very remote, the fear is real. I know people that live very close to wolves. They don't let their kids outside at night, AT ALL, and I don't blame them, because of the chance, just the chance that something could happen. We all know what it feels like to be scared at night in the woods. It is a natural fear, it is instinctual, because in the distant past that is when we were hunted by predators. That fear is not something that people can just cast off with rational thought. It is real, and it is powerful. So these kids' lives, their quality of life is less with these wolves out there running around. And you have no idea what that fear is really like until you see a wolf running across your front yard. They are HUGE, and much less than friendly. I have had friends who were growled at, and charged by wolves. They stopped short of biting them, yes, but what if it was a kid??? At night???? You just never know. It hasn't happened yet, and I pray that it never does.

And what about my other arguments? Any response to them? To me, a thinking person cannot justify the existence of wolves in the lower 48. There are too many people too close to the areas they want wolves to live in. The whole thing is ludicrous.
