Wolf hunt makes sense

To the Editor:

We are not in prehistoric times anymore.

We are in a fast spinning world of money. Back in the 30s and 40s there were a lot fewer hunters in the woods. It was mostly for food on the table.

In modern times they come in part for food and part for sport. What we have now is a lot of out-of-staters coming to hunt. When wolves were endangered they started to multiply from a couple of hundred to more than 1,000. One wolf will kill a deer per week. The bears kill their share.

In my opinion, there is no way to get a count of deer or wolves. Wolves get collared, but not necessarily all pups or adults. Bears are on the increase. 

I believe the DNR inflates the numbers to sell licenses. I say cut back on the wolves. I don’t believe the deer numbers are correct. The wolves killing off the fawns will in time leave nothing to go into the woods for. 

One concern I’ve always had is the dog hunting. I think retriever dogs to bring back downed birds is OK, but I am against dogs for hunting. I had no idea there was talk about dogs used to hunt wolves. 

The prey should have equal rights to defend one-on-one.

One-on-one, to me, is man hunting. I personally know a person that lost some of his coon dogs.
