Re: “Wolf Season

I believe that your reporter has been mislead by Idaho Fish & Game (F&G) Wolf population growth in Idaho has never been 20-30% In 2007 it was 8.8%. You state that population will grow to 1000 wolves by hunting season this year. That is impossible. population does not grw evenly throughout the year. Wolves mate and den in the Fall. Pus are not born until winter Dead wolves do not produce pups. The # of tags does not not depend on livestock conflicts. In the Panhandle where I live there has not been any livestock killing by wolves in the the last 2 years, yet the original F&G hunting plan called for 25 tags. The F&G Commission raised the mortality rate recommended by their professional staff by exactly 100 wolves. such a round # shows that was a political, not a scientific decision. If this hunt is carried out as planned, it will decimate wolf packs in Idaho.
