I think you need to do some dog hunting before they run the tails off.

Check out the post I just added a few minutes ago to the Deer forum. I've taken deer within minutes of timber wolves passing by. I continue to maintain that deer do not instinctively cower from wolves and a wolf in the area will not necessarily cause the deer to vacate.

You know, for an animal that is completely native and in relatively low numbers, the wolf sure gets cursed by a lot of hunters. Heaven Forbid a natural predetor takes a few of "your" deer. Maybe you wont have herds of deer walking past your stand to choose from. I think its natures way and hunters are getting awefully spoiled lately. And yes, I am an avid bowhunter myself.

sure you're a bowhunter, but i'm guessing not a farmer. ever lost livestock to a wolf? young cattle and horses are rather easy prey for a wolf. not saying take them out for hunting's sake, but how about ones livelyhood?

sure its all ma natures plan, but she also gave us the materials to make firearms.

No Im not a farmer, and I agree with you about losing precious cattle and horses. If I seen a wolf killing one of my livestock animals, I would have no problem killing it. And I think others should be able to do so also. But I was just saying there are a lot of hunters who immedietely think all wolves should go, thats all.

So how many livestock have been lost to wolf attacks in the past score or even past half-century? I've been living in Osakis for the past 20 years and I have never heard of anyone within 100 miles losing any livestock to wolves, mountain lions, or other predators. I've seen lions within 100 yards of my horses and they were not threatened or harmed. Sounds more like an excuse than a reason.

I would have to disagree...2 groups of domestic geese near Hoffman were destroyed by coyotes. 100% verified by sight and by locating the "denning area' of the buggers. Also one calf taken down...and herd spooked on several occasions. Bones found in "denning area" appeared to be from deer.

haven't been around menahga or pine river area then. lots of wolves sampling calves. i have two buddies that raise a dozen beef, but make their living raising horses for other people. its a shame seeing a half chewed up colt in the pasture.

when i hunt with them for a day or two during muzzleloader season, it is not uncommon to see a wolf or two each day. pretty sure they're not coyotes. i've hunted them before. way too big to be a coyote.

I hate to say it but you are dead wrong here. If you haven't heard of any being killed you must not talk with many farmers. Try north a little ways and talk to some farmers. I think you would be VERY surprised as to what you find out.

I have seen more wolves the past 3 years on the North Shore than I have seen my whole life living up there. Take em off the list and establish a management plan.

    • Just use plain old spray paint in a can. I've done it many many times and seems to stick really nice. Nothing special either I can't even tell you the brand because I have no clue. But as mentioned doing 2-3 light coats helps.
    • no expert here, but heat doesn't rise. heat radiates in the direction of least resistance (R value). warm air or water rises because it is less dense than colder air or water.  If you don't insulate you will be heating the ground under your cabin and the earth is a very large heat sink $$$. get some info from an expert in the radiant field as far as tube diameter, spacing, water temp, manifolds, length of runs, and so on. it varies on amount of windows (solar) ceiling height and room type (bed, bath, living area,  storage etc.). once you pour over the tubing you get to live with it. I did my own Home 15 years ago and got some good advise (wish I would have taken it all)
    • Sonar works from above, cameras need to be submerged. What am I missing here?
    • I've also had good luck spray painting PVC.  Biggest thing I found is to do lots of light coats, the PVC makes the paint want to run in a hurry.
    • I believe you can do this with the Lowrance HDS 9 and above.
    • I'll go with another loss in overtime.
    • Calling a win tonight, it's going to happen!
    •   You'll probably run into plenty of "experts" among the experts, too...   Floor heat is nice, but definitely not the best option if you're looking for the best efficiency, since it is a slow recovery system.  If you were looking for efficiency and lowest cost, I would suggest looking into a mini-split heat pump to complement the gas furnace if you have off-peak available.   (Disclaimer: Not an expert either, but I have stayed at a Holiday Inn Express a few times.)      
    •   Same here. I have 3 of them. Use them in the SUV, Boat, Snowmobile, and Dual Sport bike. They seem to work better on my sled in the winter with no issues at all over my old ifinder which would eat batteries in the cold. They are discontinued but you can still find them out there on the List or bay once in a while. I like them as they are a crossover and can be used on the road or with a lake map which is the main thing I use them for. Wish they would bring something like it back.
    • Ridiculous... but it would work.  Sorry to offend, guess I don't get quite so fired up about concrete.
