    If only slaps could be mailed, how red would their faces be?

    The last wildlife meeting I attended was on June 15, 2010 and the Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks would not take comments only questions. All comments had to be by e-mail. The reasoning is that it took to long and the office staff had to work overtime typing each comment. I can see there point.

  5. Ann Sydow says:

    IDFG already approved the use of traps and snares to kill wolves as well as the use of electronic calls. I believe they also accepted the rule that allows hunters to kill wolves over bear bait. They did not set the auota yet and that’s what they will talk about in august. Also they put off setting regulations re the placement of traps. I was at the July IDFG commissioners mtg and one trapper got up and complained that the restrictions being proprosed limited their ability to trap wolves. He was complaining about not being able to place traps within 300 ft of campgrounds, on roads or on masin trails. Go to the IDFG home page and click on “IDFG Changes Game Rules”.

      Thanks, when you come out with some more good wildlife articles, please, don’t hesitate to post them on here, so I don’t have to do it! 🙂

    Thanks! I’m just trying to get information out there that hopefully will help the wolves and other animals and their habitat in the long run, This site is the first place I go every day for the latest news on wolves and other wildlife issues.

      Yeah, there is no better blog about wolves/wildlife than this. You should also check out nabeki’s wolf blog which is also an amazing blog. You most likely have seen it already, but here is the link to it,

‎"At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “thus far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behaviour."
