    He must be real proud of himself. Harvested?????? Deer are harvested!!! Wolves shouldn't be killed unless in self defense, or defense of others, pets, or property! Some idiots think that just because God created it, they can kill it. Another ZERO GENE POOL product!

    There must be an overabundance of wolves in the area where Mike shot that one. I was a kid staying with my grandfather in the late 50's and early to mid 60's and he would point out a tree we were driving by and tell the guys name and what year it was he ran to, climbed and spent the night in a tree to escape a pack of wolves in Illinois. That happened in the early thirtys I believe it was 5 miles north and about 3 miles west of Brownstown Illinois on what was at the time a gravel road. My grandfathers place was another mile north and one more mile west but we would frequently take that road to get home. I never heard of wolves getting anyone but there are old folktales about wolves. You wouldn't want to be in their environment without a weapon. Dan

    The wolves are protected in some areas of Ontario, farmers shoot them anyway to protect their livestock. Wolves kill newborn moose calves. Moose hunting in Northwestern Ontario is a very important part of the tourism industry. Bill Malcolm

    My cousin lives in Idaho..the wolves have gotten so out of hand that not only have the mortality rates of yearling elk and deer doubled ..so have the ranchers losses of livestock..horses sheep and cattle...oh yeah ..they have also found a taste for puppy too...just as bad as the yodel dogs we had in Texas

    Where I hunt in Ontario wolves can shot, killed, harvested whatever you want to call it, legally with a small game license. They are quite abundant in this area. The locals are grateful when one is killed. I notice they have been removed from endagered list in U.S., which now puts them in state jurisdiction. In Michigan they can only be killed if they are about to attack your pets or livestock. Hunting certainly is not for everybody, I don't begrudge anyones choice to not hunt (or fish), and I am not remorseful for my actions as well. Mik

    "He must be real proud of himself. Harvested?????? Deer are harvested!!! Wolves shouldn't be killed unless in self defense, or defense of others, pets, or property!"

    Is this your opinion or are you quoting the Ontario Game Laws. I don't know why I asked that question. I am very sure you are stating an opinion and we all know what they are like.

    Still I think it would have been much more fair to Mike if you had stated that you were expressing a self righteous opinion instead of just acting like an A--hole.

    My son does the bass tournament thing, and when they are not fishing a tournament they are "practicing". :)

    Andy 44,

    Unless you were issued a "Busy-Body License", shut the fu*k up. If it was legal activity you haven't a leg to stand on.

    I say this with all due respect, of course.
