Why use the cutesy word "registered" in the headline?.. They "registered" them?.. At least in the article it tells it like it is; they *killed* them. The human killing machine marches on..

Most hunters are cowards. It is easy to shoot things that won't shoot back. You can thank your governor for not maning up and saying.."No" to the hunt. This country & state is run by cowards.

I hunt pheasant and deer, but hunting a canine? Sorry, it just doesn't seem right. I know a significant number of deer are wounded and not found. What happens when a wolf is wounded -- you know, the animal that ghosts through the forest? I got to think there are a lot of wolves that are left to die a painful death. And not because the hunters didn't try to find them. I wonder what kind of person thinks this kind of hunting is worthy?

And the deer doesn't die painful deaths when you all injure them? What a mindless post. Someone is arguing its okay to shoot Bambi and pheasant but not a wolf? Its a wild animal that needs management just like the rest of the wild animals. Talk to the farmers and ranchers around the state.

Funny how just 3 generations ago if somebody in your family didn't hunt, you didn't eat. Amazing how "civilized" the world has become in just 100 years. To think your grandpa or great-grandpa used to hunt to feed his family. Are you calling him a coward?

"To think your grandpa or great-grandpa used to hunt to feed his family. Are you calling him a coward?"-----Huh? One of my grandpas was a gardener and the other worked in a factory. Neither one ever hunted a day in his life or owned a gun. And they always fed their families. Besides, how does killing wolves put food on the table? People who shoot wolves are definitely cowards.

Why is it cowardly to shoot wolves if they are destroying the deer and moose population? Should we let the wolves eliminate the moose in MN?
