    Wisconsistan Wolf Hunt

    Wisconsin governor signs wolf hunt bill

    MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Gov. Scott Walker has signed a bill that would create a wolf hunt in Wisconsin.

    The bill would establish a hunting and trapping season that would run from mid-October through the end of February. The Department of Natural Resources would be allowed to determine how many licenses to issue through a preference point system.

    Wisconsin wolves came off the federal endangered species list last year. The state is now free to manage the wolves as they see fit.

    Walker signed the bill during an appearance Monday morning at Aqualand Manufacturing, Inc., a dock maker in Woodruff. He issued a press release saying the hunt will help control a burgeoning wolf population that has been preying on livestock.

    Uh, no.

    I'm no Walker homer. This is one of the dumbest things he's done yet.

    Licenses are going to be limited. If I get one that's one less kill-boner retard that will be able to legally shoot a wolf.

    I know there are lots of hippies in Madison who think wolf hunting is gay - I strongly encourage them to take some time off from occupying the capitol and apply for a wolf license as well.

    How many Wolves are killed in WI each now? Is there a place to see the number?

    And I am guessing Ranchers / Farmers already have permission to kill nuacance wolves?

    Not sure how I feel about wolf tags

    That's not necessarily true. It depends on how the number of licenses available is determined. For example doe permits numbers are based off the percentage of doe killed from the number of permits sold. So if wolf permits are calculated like doe permits then what you want to do won't help and will help increase the number of permits available the following year. Hopefully any season will be treated like the do with sturgeon spearing in Lake Winnebago, which closes as soon as the targeted number is reached or the season closes.

    The DNR website has information about the number of wolves killed, but there are a people out there who practice the 3 S's (Shoot, Shovel, Shut up) so the actual number of wolves killed is unknown.

    Good work Jer. I was wondering WTF when I saw this post. But you came through for the critters. You WI doods need to get all the hippies on board to apply for the available licenses too. Great way to fuck up the Man's plans.

    Walker just signed the bill yesterday, as far as I know the permitting process is undetermined. This is just a genius idea I came up with. My other idea was pretty rad as well, but it involves a massive multi-year manhunt so I won't get into it here.

    Landowners have had the ability to kill nuicance wolves I think since the whole reintroduction thing began. As Grange stated, many "sportsmen" (most noteably redneck dipshit bear hunters) already kill wolves illegaly.

    ...and although I think anybody who shoots something they're not going to eat is a fag, I have to agree with Scrub and say that trappers are even bigger pussies. You wouldn't believe the number of he-man outdoorsmen around here who will not under any circumstances go into the woods unarmed. I'm in wolf country. I haven't been killed yet.Why would you hang out in a place where you're in constant fear of monsters? Like I've said many times before - some people should just stay the fuck out of the woods.

    Sad fact of the matter is that there are a large number of idiots in Wisconsistan who view all fauna as merely something to shoot at.The arguements are always the same - eventually they all point to that woman who got killed in Canada years and years ago. OMG! Look out moron! The winner of the Megabucks jackpot might drop a sattelite on you!!!

    What was Walker's rationale for supporting this?

    I'll be putting up my radar for something similar in MI. I would imagine the packs in the UP cross into WI and vice versa.

    Pretty sure they are going to allow a wolf hunt in MN too. Haven't heard much more than a mention of it though.

    Jer, you really should move back out here.

    This past season Montana had a quota of 220 wolves available for harvest. During the general archery and rifle seasons (which is about 4 months long) only 100 wolves were harvested. So they extended the wolf season another 2 months and only 33 more were harvested. So in a six month period, hunters only reached a harvest ratio of 60 percent of the quota. My take on this situation is that there are some very shitty hunters in this state.

    Bonus: we have nice skiing out here too. Fishing's not bad either...



    Note: I am a meat hunter. I only hunt for things I plan to eat.

    No. A person has to live in WI.

    Wisconsin restricts fall wolf kill to 201 animals

    Updated: Tuesday, July 03, 2012 1:10 PM

    By TODD RICHMOND

    Associated Press


    MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Hunters would be allowed to kill roughly 20 percent of Wisconsin's wolves under rules the state Department of Natural Resources proposed Tuesday establishing the framework for this fall's new wolf hunt.


    The rules package sets up a statewide quota of 201 wolves across six zones. It also declares the number of permits would be equal to 10 times the quota, or 2,010 permits, and prohibits hunting on five tribal reservations.


    Non-tribal hunters could face even tighter kill restrictions. Treaties that ceded the northern third of the state to the federal government in the mid-19th century grant a half-dozen Chippewa tribes the right to claim up to 50 percent of the quota in that territory for themselves. It's unclear whether the tribes will exercise that right or to what extent -- the animals play a crucial role in tribal culture.


    The DNR has estimated as many as 880 wolves roam the state. DNR ecologists want to slash that number to 350, but said in the rules they want to move slowly in the hunt's first year. The quota already has sparked grumbling in some outdoor circles as too low to make any difference.


    "They're being overly conservative in my judgment," said George Meyer, executive director of the Wisconsin Wildlife Federation and a former DNR secretary. "You may not even reduce the population for next year. I'm not disagreeing with the idea of being cautious. (But) this is getting to be ultra-cautious."


    President Barack Obama's administration removed wolves in Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin from the endangered species list in January. Days later, GOP lawmakers in Wisconsin introduced a bill setting up a hunt. Republican Gov. Scott Walker signed the measure into law in April.


    The law was welcome news for farmers who have been struggling with wolves killing their livestock for several years. Last year alone, the DNR verified 111 complaints about problem wolves


    The law lays out most of the hunt's parameters -- it will run from Oct. 15 to the end of February, permit applications will cost $10, permits will cost $100 for in-state hunters and hunters can use dogs, traps and bait -- but left the kill quotas up to the DNR.


    In a memo to the Natural Resources Board, department Secretary Cathy Stepp wrote that the quotas will begin to reduce the wolf population, noting areas with depredation problems have been placed in zones with higher sub-quotas. However, the department "is uncomfortable prescribing higher harvests in the first year" because it's still unclear how depredation kills, illegal kills and the hunt's impact on wolf reproduction will affect the population.


    "This is our first attempt," DNR Lands Division Administrator Kurt Thiede said in an interview. "We're going to learn a lot from this year. That's one of the reasons we're proceeding slowly. We're trying to find a balance between all the factors."


    The Natural Resources Board is expected to take up the plan at a meeting in Stevens Point on July 17.

    $110 ain't that bad.

    I wonder when WI will have an eagle hunting season? When can I put my traps out for deer? Remember - WI is the place where they tried to start up a cat season back in the 90's. I'm holding out for Fat Dumbass Redneck Season.

    Its probably no more inhumane than wounding a wolf. But I just do not find it sporting.

    Your idea is a good one. I wonder if I can get a license, living in California. Probably not, but I would love to try.

    What I would really like, is a license to hunt wolf hunters. That would be rad. I've wanted to hunt people since I read "The Most Dangerous Game" as a kid, and nothing would be better than shooting a bunch of wolf hunters.

    The idea that wolves are overpopulated is really silly. They are clearly not the overpopulated species that needs its population limited......

    Killing 20 percent of the humans out there would do a whole lot more for the world.

    Especially in Wisconsistan. That's all I ever hear from the wolf hunter wannabes "Holy Baby Jesus - the wolf population is OUT OF CONTROL!!!". I live in wolf country. I've seen a grand total of two. The DNR estimates there are 600 in WI. These are the same guys who overestimated the deer heard by the bazillions for a decade.

    Seriously - click on that facebook link. From what I've experienced that pud is a pretty good representation of the average WI wannabe wolf hunter. You should hear some of the discussions I've had with these geniuses. My favorite are the bear hunter dipshits who complain that wolves take out their dogs. Their solution? Protect their precious dogs by using them to hunt wolves! Honestly - they make many of the guys here seem totally rational by comparison.

    Doesn't take much, does it?

    I'm curious how a species goes from endangered one year to "we totally need to kill all these freaking things" the following.
