    ignorance of the law is no excuse.


    while I am very happy this wolf is dead, I do not feel any sympathy for ignorant hunters.

    Yeah, I'm glad they killed a wolf but in these days of GPS it's hard not to know you're half-a-mile into the wrong area.

    Where it happened is definitely easy to get on the wrong side if you aren't staring at onx maps or something... the markers are small posts or plaques on trees and they are not constant or within sight of each other always.. and it is a lot of open country up there especially with all the snow... that being said.. he is a lifelong resident and an outfitter and probably knew better. The antis are up in arms like usual around here.

    1 more wolf down is a good thing,,i suppose he should have had a gps and on x chip,,though there are still folks that don't use electronic gadgets like a gps.those markers are hard to see,i was up by spread creek a couple years ago and didn't see them very well.some are there but might be easy to miss,especially w snow in the area.

    I do understand that mistakes happen but I seriously doubt he was unaware of where he was.
    even if he did not ,it was a bonehead move and bonehead moves generally come with consequences.
    besides , HE was a local guide!!!!!!!! not just any dumb bloke!!!!!!! a guide !

    wether he knew better or not , he clearly should have!

    another thing for the antis to whine and cry about, just what hunting needs

    agreed! any dead wolf is a good wolf!!!!

    I am one who has never used gps. yet not once HAVE I ever crossed a boundary unaware! nor do I have any respect or sympathy for those who do.
