"My Father always considered a walk in the mountains as the equivalent of church going."
Ditto what CC said
Right you are Colorado Cowboy, I used to hunt Grand Teton National Park untill wolves decimated the elk herd. Where they used to issue thousands of elk tags, it's reduced to a handfull now. I quit hunting the park in 1999, when I started seeing more wolf tracks than Elk, Moose & Deer tracks. It's a crying shame what the Clinton Gang did back in 1995, releasing a Canadian invasive species on United States Sportspeople.
Just to clarify, I never said that the populations stay the same when the wolves move in. I'm not a wolf lover or an earth guardian and I didn't come on this forum to spend hours going back and forth about the wolves. I was just stating a fact that elk are still vocal in wolf country.
At our local RMEF dinner this year an outfitter in the Gardiner,Mt area donated a hunt for the live auction but it had a reserve on it. Now this is in PA. They could not even get the price up to the reserve so it did not go. Even PA. hunters know how the wolves have affected the elk. I feel sorry for the people trying to make a living in the outdoors where wolves are present.
It seems like the rut has shifted later. I am hearing bulls bugling in mid october and yes we have wolves.
