    Stop the Wolf in Colorado

    I am sure most of you have seen the infuriating news about the ballot initiative moving forward for the 2020 ballot that will force the release of Wolves into Colorado. I'm pretty sure they still have to get 200k signatures, a simple task on the streets of Boulder. I also believe there is a recent Eastman's Elevated podcast on the subject. Many people I have spoke with feel hopeless in stopping this, especially with the horror of liberal group think now the majority in Colorado.

    That being said. What can be done? Has anyone found anyway we can donate or get involved to try to stop or slow this? Also, lets keep this intelligent and high level. I don't believe it helps to just lash out that we should shoot them all.

    This is the only organization I've been able to turn up so far. Anyone know of anything else?

    I see two sides of this.

    That's all. No preaching. Just count me as one of those "on the fence", seeing value to both sides of the argument. For whatever that's worth.

    You being a hunter and someone who lives in Colorado, this really surprises me.

    just out of curiosity , what/how do you see the wolves benefiting??

    I ask because I see zero positive to them being introduced but many negatives.

    The only positive that I see is the ability for us to be able to hunt them.

    The negatives far outweigh the positives. Once they bring the elk numbers down in RMNP they will move out of the park and start on everything else. All you have to do is to look to Idaho and Wyoming to see what they have done to the elk and moose populations there. Not to mention when they get into a herd of cattle or sheep. They will even lower the coyote populations.

    There is a reason that they are shot on sight up in Canada.

    Unfortunately once the tree huggers in the eastern slope start the BS, it will be hard to defeat them in a statewide vote.

    All one has to do is to look at what the front range voters did back when the bear initiative was on the ballot years ago. They got rid of spring bear hunts along with the ability to bait or use dogs. We are down to just the fall draw hunt and the hunts during the regular big game seasons.

    Now we have more bears than a lot of areas can handle. There are more bear human interactions every day. Last year during the deer muzzle loader hunt in unit 44 I actually saw more bears than I did deer.
