No wolf management for Wi
I wonder if this bill will pass. I like the idea. Sure wish Mn would follow there neighbors actions.
Would certainly be a benefit for us.
Does this mean SSS would be OK and no /investigations/arrests made by state DNR officers ??
YES! ilike the approach, hopefully it will force the feds to allow management.
The lunacy of the federal machine, in all facets, is driving states to do their own thing to protect themselves from the harmful policies. I like it
Same thing Idaho, did to force the Feds hands,,,, Of course if McConnel would get off his butt, it would be signed, because that is where it is at, the Senate, where wolf issues is a low priority
Fulldraw, many wolves from Mn are shot or trapped legally in NW Ontario. One shot on Eagle Lake had a collar from Mn.
Glad to hear Spike buck. Maybe the Mn guys need to do an ol wolf drive to push more over to our neighbors to the north.
We depleted our wolves from one area here through legal hunting and trapping. I actually enjoy hunting wolves so do send us a few more.
If Obama was still in office I'm not sure this would be a consideration. IMO, from what I remember of his politics, he would threaten to withhold all other forms of federal funding to any state that didn't follow his agenda.
Disband the clutter of the USFW and be done with it...
It isn't going to pass, but was worth a try... I hope it does though, that state has been hit hard by the wolves and their current season/tag/price structure is not good enough to ever control the population.
Nick you are dead wrong,,,, The governor is on board as is the full legislators, he said send me the bill I would sign it,,,,,, Different guy in Washington now.......
I hope it does, but even when it does I bet it'll be tied up in court for a long time (that's kind of what I was getting at).
Nick, the courts are done,,,,, it will not go back in,,,, the USFW has to rewrite some language, they did not have it right the first time, but have been given the opportunity to submit again,,,,,,,,,
spt2 you're full of sh%$ and don't know what your talking about.
A federal judge’s order has put the gray wolf back on the endangered species list in Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan — a decision that, unless overturned, stops the hunting and trapping of wolves in the three states.
U.S. District Judge Beryl Howell in Washington, D.C., on Friday threw out an Obama administration decision to drop federal protection for the wolves in the western Great Lakes region, calling the removal “arbitrary and capricious” and a violation of the Endangered Species Act.
We had a wolf season for two or three years then this wonderful judge overturned the decision.
...and a legislative body can overthrow a federal judges order...
This is the problem we face today with [federal] courts. They take it upon themselves to legislate from the bench when they do not have that authority. The only time a fed judge can put the stops on something is when they can write an opinion based on the sound practice of law and that opinion they write speaks to the constitutionality of that something.
