Shocked by number of hunting permits

To the Editor:

I was shocked at the number of wolf hunting permits that will be given. 

I found a website that said the estimated number of wolves in all of Wisconsin is between 762 and 832 for the 2011-12 count ... what gives on that over 1,000 permits?  

Also on Isle Royal there are only nine wolves. Why hasn’t the idea of trapping and relocating been brought up? I am not against hunters, just want to be sure that we humans leave some of the wild in wilderness.

Enjoy the paper, I lived up in Woodruff area from 1962 to 1973. Hard winters back then. I believe I did see a wolf just once during that time, trotting across the frozen lake ... awesome.

Isle TRoyale wolves and their main prey, the moose, is probably the longest and most detailed study of predator-prey interaction in history. It makes facinating reading and great insight when a natural population in an isolated location without "management" ebbs and flows between feast and famine.
