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.

    • The walleyes (current strong) I catch on Rainy fight harder than any bass I've ever caught. 
    • That's what happened when a mouse ran up Del's leg. He peed all over the carpet. 
    • cool info here....   http://files.dnr.state.mn.us/education_safety/safety/ice/ice_stats.pdf
    • Anyone fall thru the ice with a floating jacket or bibs? Any take on it? How about going thru WITHOUT floating jacket and pants? Any take on it? What if you fall in? What should you do if you fall through the ice? First, try not to panic. This may be easier said than done, unless you have worked out a survival plan in advance. Read through these steps so that you can be prepared. Don't remove your winter clothing. Heavy clothes won't drag you down, but instead can trap air to provide warmth and flotation. This is especially true with a snowmobile suit. Turn toward the direction you came. That’s probably the strongest ice. Place your hands and arms on the unbroken surface. This is where a pair of nails, sharpened screwdrivers or ice picks come in handy in
      providing the extra traction you need to pull yourself up onto the ice. Kick your feet and dig in your ice picks to work your way back onto the solid ice. If your clothes have trapped a lot of water, you may have to lift yourself partially out of the water on your elbows to let the water drain before starting forward. Lie flat on the ice once you are out and roll away from the hole to keep your weight spread out. This may help prevent you from breaking through again. Get to a warm, dry, sheltered area and re-warm yourself immediately. In moderate to severe cases of cold water hypothermia, you must seek medical attention. Cold blood trapped in your extremities can come rushing back to your heart after you begin to re-warm. The shock of the
      chilled blood may cause ventricular fibrillation leading to a heart attack and death! 
    • dont be surprised if ya catch a REB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    • Well see their ya, go. Now fight that on a 26" rod. Can we both agree then that Walleye's can give up a little fight?
    • Here's a 12lber from this summer, though    
    • Maybe you can just carefully pull the right cable through with the old one but doughtfull if you got the foamed version.
    • Looked in every hole I could find. Hope I got it all but will leave out the traps for a few days.
