1. Hi, I hunt.

And this issue is bullshit. Let the wolves alone. They are critical to keeping GAME ANIMALS managed, and herds healthy. To say nothing of the water table, the health of the forest, even the damn beavers. (No pun intnd.)

They are endorsing killing those wolves for two reasons:

1. Suppressing the predators results in over-stock of elk and deer, prompting more hunting tags.
2. Ranchers hate wolves.

You might say 3. Another animal to hunt. Some people like hunting wolves and coyotes.
Personally, I only hunt stuff that will make a meal or two, or nuisances like wild boar, or coyotes. Wolves aren't even a blip on the 'nuisance' chart.

Some science behind how wolves affect everything, right down to the water table, positively.
