There's not much but cruelty in the upcoming wolf hunting season. Because of the social structure of wolf packs, hunting impacts are like no other species. The insane and paranoid hatred so many hunters possess of wolves combined with the fact there is no real utility in the wolf meat or carcus makes the wolf hunt a game of killing for killing's sake. Why is it that the prospect of restoring our native fauna and allowing our woods to grow to maturity such a political and loaded effort? Continuing to degrade our north woods to a weed patch of aspen, grouse and deer is an insult to our natural heritage.
There is not much but cruelty in advocating the slow agonizing death of starvation for the wolves attempting to survive in a mature forest, devoid of those weedy aspen and grouse and deer. Having to watch packs tear each other to pieces struggling for ever larger territories devoid of prey is an insane desire, and it is paranoia to believe hunters hate wolves. We just recognize that we need to manage them some other way than starvation. Restoring our native fauna (meaning protecting wolves absolutely) is not going to happen if we "allow our woods to grow to maturity". They are exclusive of each other; wolves have to eat! Stop logging, and the end result will be way less deer, moose, grouse, bunnies, AND wolves, as well as economic disaster for the north woods. Bill G.
