        Ok so this year I was hunting in a usual spot of mine, I have on me a .257 wetherby Mag, and a .45 and in between my dad and I which is only about 30-50 yards a pack of wolves start to hunt an elk. The woods in between my dad and myself you could not see through. Well when their are over 12 wolves in 1 pack and they kill something not 100 feet away from you and start to protect the kill, you dont have enough bullets. As far as i'm concerned I could take my AR with 1000 rounds and you still dont have enough ammo. Or fire power

          I live in the Bozeman, Mt. area, and bowhunt elk in nearby Gallatin Nat'l forest. I am more concerned about bears than wolves, especially a sow w/ cubs. Wolves are not fond of human interaction....that's why you rarely see them. I don't worry about wolves, and I don't pack a firearm due to weight limitations. I do believe they have been tough on the local elk population.

              lordmichael you gave yourself away. do you belong to PETA, HumaneSociety? Wolves are indiscriminate killers, they don't pick out the old and sick. Come on! (thay is really they)

                wolves do in fact, most of the time, pick out the sick and the weak. wolves in the barren lands run a herd of caribou till the young and slow fall out( aka the weak ones) and then they try to make a kill. Even then they are not always succesful. House cats are a far more talented predator. Plus we all have more to worry about from the democrats than the wolves.

                    I hunt with friends that live in NW Montana. The wolves are taking over to the point of it not being worthwhile to buy a nonres hunting license. While not having been physically chased from my hunting spots, the lack of game due to the wolves has chased me off from some places.

                        I don't know who told lordmichael that wolves eat the old and sick but the answer he posted is in reverse order. Coyotes are far more prone to take weak big game species than wolves. The largest pack of wolves I've personally seen is nine. I watched a pack of seven take down four calf elk and two cows (Hamstrung the cows first) and take off without eating anything. I watched the kill site for three days and never saw them return. On the fourth day a cougar drug one of the calves off and hid it.
                        So much for killing the old and weak.

                          I hunted northern central Idaho for 7 years, no longer, the wolf problem has distroyed the best elk hunting I have ever known. I now hunt in southern Wy. trying to stay ahead of the spread of huge mistake. Open the season on wolves and control the problem now. Don't believe these feel good people they don't have a clue, they don't live in NW Wyoming and Mt. area. Elk season once was a fuitful time for West Yellowstone, Mt. not any more.

                            There was a reason the old timers took out the majority of the wolf population in the U.S. over a hundred years ago. They tremendously thin out all of their prey populations and pose quite a threat to livestolk. They can then switch to another prey species (rabbits, birds, rats). Research has shown that coyotes, wolves, lions, etc, don't just thin out the weaker members of a herd. They will take out whatever runs through their path and they are very effecient killers. The problem with wolves is that they are a keystone predator and there is nothing to keep their popluation in check, with the exception of disease. When an area they hunt becomes depleted of its prey species, they can simply migrate. If humans don't control their numbers, the balance of species within an area will indeed be diminished.
