Howl for wildlife
Just saw this organization o. Facebook. I put my money where my mouth is and donated.
I saw them somewhere else too, kind of wanted to learn a little more before I jumped on their bandwagon since I don’t recall running across them.
Our new lion hunting bill is the first I've heard of them. As connected as many are on Bowsite, maybe someone knows who they actually are?
If anyone has Facebook. Go to their page. It appears that they are serious about these issues in multiple states.
Reading their info, you could take it either way --- for or against hunting. I agree, I need a lot more info on them first, especially since they originate in California.
"Reading their info, you could take it either way --- for or against hunting." My first thought also.
Wolves in sheeps clothing was my instinctive take, the irony of their name and cover photo of a wolf is my big check.
I don't know for sure. I guess I thought their name was as intentional as the anti orgs like to do. I just saw from their Facebook posts that they sure seem to be against the colorado and other state measures.
They have a website - howlforwildlife.org
I'm still reviewing their webpage. - They look legit on the surface, maybe some of our Cali residents here can shed some light? I want to believe the best but that has bitten me on the ass more than once. ;-)
Here are some examples that I am seeing on Facebook.
Cautiously optimistic here. Maybe, just maybe, this could be the start of the across the board support AND real meaningful action group hunting needs!
It looks to be the hunters in California that successfully stood up against the bear hunting ban (SB 252) this time last year. I know they were planning a platform like this one. They talked about it on some podcast, I believe P&Y, last spring. My .02, this group looks legit and will do great things.
A potential wolf in sheep’s clothing beware be very aware
I signed up and am already impressed with their activity. They have sent 5700+ emails to CO legislators. I'm going to send some money.
Do most hunters care about preserving hunting? Not unless it affects something a hunter specifically hunts, in their state. We are a sad bunch.
Where to rest of CO guys on this?
My check on them Jaquomo was just that I had never heard about them until very recently, I have no problem getting on board with them, I just thought it wise too look at them a little closer. It’s not like the antis are above anything to further their agenda.
They were worth my contribution.
You can sign up for all the info and updates without donating. They appear to be serious about starting a national organization of ALL hunters to fight back against these state-by-state threats. This is something that currently does not exist.
Looks like the organization that everyone's been waiting for! But like every thing else in this world Money Moves It! Hopefully the hunting hordes get on board.
Don't see any harm in getting info and updates. Too early for me to donate. I can't see anything bad but they are so new that there isn't much out there. Some years ago a new organization popped up that appeared to be a great fit for me that turned out not to be.
But Glunt, you still like to do backcountry hiking and angling, right? Me too. ;-)
I looked over their site fairly close. Seem to be legit and on the side of the hunting community nationwide. More action taking place on the Howl site than BHA for dam sure. I sent the emails to all 4 states. I’d give it a look for yourselves gents.
Something needs to happen. Sounds like Colorado is turning into California

This is a podcast featuring the "Howl for Wildlife" founder. "Huntin Ain't Easy" podcast. EP 25 HOWL for Wildlife, with the creator of HOWL, Charles Whitwam
And this is the antis using Facebook to gin up support.
I think this Howl group is legit. Looks like they are for the cause
First rep to drop the bill tonight
I will say this - they keep you in the loop if you just sign up. Like, daily reports. That tells something.
HSUS, the big lie already. "Colorado hunters kill thousands of Bobcats per year." According to CPW reports, hunters and trappers take 400-500 cat per year during a set season. Not thousands. One of the same sponsors of this Bill, tried to ban bobcat hunting last year, using a Citizens Petition before the CPW Commission. Based on science and recommendations from Staff, the petition was denied. They did not get their way so here we go with another action trying through the Legislature.
