I have to star you on that one BH because what your saying is 100% correct.
None the less I'd say 5,000 is still a far cry from anything remotely out of balance. I believe in hunters rights and that there is a certain human
right of passage, but if they had to cut back a bit on deer and Elk hunting to make rom for more wolves i'd say go for it, or perhaps limit hunting
to a Bow.
I've never gone out with a gun honestly, I personally think that hunting with a gun for sport is no sport at all, so perhaps the solution is limiting
gun hunting and making it an actual sport with some actual danger involved for the participants and much lower success rate for most.
More Deer and Elk = More capacity for Wolves and less risk to livestock.
But Wolves, they are a higher species, I rank them with Whales, Apes and other Animals that have life long bonds and or a high degree of emotion and
They shouldn't be just allowed to exist, they should be allowed to thrive.
